STARTS AT 3:10 ---
This engine and its twin were built by my father. He installed them in his 33' Bertram. Sorry about all the cranking. I meant to cut out a large section of that, but somehow I forgot about it.
FAQ: Why is it white? It is common for boats to have white engines.
Why is water coming out of the Exhaust? The engine is cooled by a continuous flow of seawater, or in this case water from a hose. It comes out of the Exhaust.
Why is it cranking for so long? Is the starter fried now? The starter is fine. Everything was completely dry at the beginning of the video. It just took some time for the fuel to be delivered.
Both engines are running (and starting) great over 5 years later. Thanks for watching.
The Diesel Story (1952)
Traces the development of the diesel from the Otto 'SILENT' gas engine of
1877, through Rudolph Diesel's engine, to the machines that now drive
ships, trains, tractors, trucks and cars.
Caterpillar - D8 - Diesel - Cold Start - Cat - Tractor - WW2 - Normandy
Caterpillar D8-8R Built in Illinois USA in 1941 then shipped over to
England to join 79th armoured Div 819 Dozer Squadron. This actual machine
took part in Normandy and D-Day events. Filmed on 19th July 2008 at Barton
under Needwood Steam Rally ( near Lichfield Staffs ) What you are watching
is the start process needed before the Big Cats diesel engine can be
started. The petrol driven starter motor ( donkey engine ) is fired up
first. This generates heat which inturn is used to warm up the big diesel
engine prior to starting. The action of the starter motor also builds up
the oil pressure in the big diesel engine. When the required oil pressure
has been reached you will see the guy activate the start mechanism on the
diesel engine. Once she has fired up the primary petrol engine is shut down
leaving the Big Cat Diesel engine purring away....Sweet
3 TON FLYWHEEL! Vintage Steam Rally,Stourport 12th July 2009
Vic showing off his pride and joy....plus a 2 stroke TANK engine, he
informs me the BIG one developes 125hp @ 250rpm.. Filmed and edited by
TORQUE = HP x 5252 ÷ RPM
Torque = (125 x 5252) / 250 = 2626 ft lbs or 3560Nm
That's an amazing amount of torque
Sadly the owner of this engine 'Vic' seen in the film passed away in
December 2012, I don't know which out of his collection was his favourite
but I bet he keeping any eye on them all.
He was a character and a gentleman I had the privilege to speak with many
I have had a message from the new owner which I have copied onto here and
.Hello racerroy, I originally bought and removed this engine from it's
working place (York waterworks in 1997) I then installed it in one of my
buildings and returned it to running order but after suffering a mental
brake down mistakenly sold it to Vick. I bought it from his daughter before
it was put to auction to stop it from being sold overseas!! The engine is
going into a privet collection in Suffolk just up the road from where she
was built, which I think is where she belongs. Steve
Start Deutz Traktor - old engine start
Von diesen wunderschönen Treffen habe ich auch eine DVD erstellt.
Auf dem Bulldog Dampf und Diesel Treffen 2009 in Markkleeberg bei Leipzig,
konnte ich den Start eines Deutz Traktors miterleben und filmen.
Mit viel Qualm erwachte der Traktor zum Leben.
Diesel ready (6hp) Compares to Yanmar L70 HD300D 4 - 4.4 kW diesel engine
I bought a bunch of these engines to experiment with B20+ (20% Biodiesel)
home Biodiesel production (for better lubricity). Heavy Duty 6hp HD300D max
4.4kW diesel engine. 296cc putting out 4kv of continuous output. 1" shaft
turning clockwise from the fly wheel end. 3.5L (.925gal) capacity. Engine
dry weight is 33kg or 72lbs. The motor as seen runs smoother at the higher
rpm's. It is a beast with torque and is a great motor for the DIY person.
I will post other applications for this motor in the future. The "Throttle
Bracket" is spring loaded so you can set up a throttle cable to a handlebar
or foot pedal if you like.
