'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
1976 Mercedes /8 First start in 12 years!
The mighty 200D sputters into life for the first time in 12 years!
Altough it may be a bit too lively, since it has blown out a glowplug
For the short-tempered: 0:50
Mercedes Million Kilometer Test
Mobil 1 put 1 million kilometers on a Mercedes-Benz engine then broke it
down to see how the fully synthetic motor oil did in leaving minimal
deposits and minimal wear on the engine, demonstrating how Mobil 1 will
allow an engine to operate in like new conditions through an extended test
1975 Mercedes Benz 300D EXTREME -20F Cold Start Winter W115 OM617
((Look at my new cold start video, all the bugs are fixed))
I only paid 300 dollars for it, the guy thought it had a blown engine, but
it turned out the timing on the injector pump was way off. I ended up
taking the injector pump off and putting it on the right teeth, and doing
the drip test, and etc. It has rolled over twice now, it has finally just
broke in at around 230,000 miles. It runs great and I put about 45 miles a
day on it. Best diesel ever made in my opinion. Keep in mind it is VERY
cold sometimes in North Idaho, and this afternoon it was a cold day, and it
finally started. It starts way better in 30 degrees and up weather! :-)

I made two more videos to show that car starts now perfectly and I will add
another one as soon as the temperature will drop. Reason why car didn't
start in this video is because 3 of 6 glow plugs were not working.
Я снял ещё два видео, чтобы показать, что
машина заводится сейчас отлично.
Причина, по которой машина не заводилась
в этом видео, в том, что 3 из 6 свечей
накаливания не работали.
1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better
fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with
fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds
to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first
firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine
