    Great vid... and I particularly like your choice of opening music, "Shake Hands With Danger" -- I wrote the tune and produced for Caterpillar Tractor awhile back.

    Ok. I'm a complete lazy idiot. 2 stroke diesel. Does the diesel itself provide enough lubrication? My knowledge of 2 strokes is my weed whacker. :) My last 2 stroke motorcycle was from 71 and a oil injection system. I was 7. It was 7.

    It looks to me the supercharger is a centrifugal type and not the more common Roots type that most Detroit Diesel use. Technically, a centrifugal supercharger is not a “positive displacement” supercharger in the way a roots type blower is. And I can’t believe you destroyed that beautiful Corvair

    Never. Fuel breaks down within a year becomes stale. Diesel fuel within 6 months to year or longer depending on conditions. 20 years probably 40% of that fuel amount is water.

    I ran that model twenty years ago at a scrapyard. It had a genny and mag set up. Those models were notorious for the boom lock to slip out and engage which would send boom back over the top of machine while the. dragline cable would wrap around the cab. Looks like it happened to this one too.
