    I agree...Without sound on my computer I have no way of judging how fast it was running...But it might be remembered that two-stroke Detroit Diesels sound like they are running twice as fast as they really are......Ben

    Running a cold engine up like that is criminal.

    The sound of the air starter is one thing---the sound of that jimmy is another

    He talks about this one running away---but they got it starved for air in time.

    I had one run away from me but before I could pull the emergency stop it ate itself for lunch

    When it happened I was digging a deep bore pit to do a jack and bore under a RR. I was sitting on a shelf about 10' down with a Koehring excavator. That position made the noise even louder---at first I thought a helicopter was landing on my head! We ended up rebuilding that devil down in that hole

    You missed a lot of nice trucks at the Conroe Cruisers show today...Nothing that size though...The closest was a '34 Plymouth one ton dually converted to a Cummins "B" industrial engine......Ben

    My guess is that was built just up the road from me in Macungie (Bear Swamp in Lenape) PA. It appears as though many standard parts are used.

    Since we don't have an Ugly Tractor thread, I figured this one might find a place here among kindred souls......Ben

    Australia is home to some of the world's ugliest trucks...Aussies are always proud to show them off, and justifiably so...Like this Jimmy powered Diamond T......Ben
