I just finished rereading the SAE book titled "Hall Scott: The Untold Story Of a Great American Engine Maker", very good book. I am now an engine nut, wanting to know more about the big ones. So---when I go to Wisconsin this fall, I am going to attempt to go on a tour of the Waukesha plant, thanks for posting this video.

I was fortunate enough to tour the facility at their open house several years ago. All I can say is it is unbelievable. Words can't describe what you will be seeing when you get there. One of the special display's they had when I was there was one of the enginators that was in the bottom of the World Trade Center.

In 1966 the VHP was put out in the field as a 50,000 hour throw away engine. It has been Waukesha's bread and butter ever since. Since 1966 there are only 2 different crankshafts (angle or t-drilled), 1 head, 2 different bore sizes (piston/liner kits), 1 valve cover, 3 different weight con-rods, 2 different exhaust manifolds, and 2 different head gasket sets. Henry Ford is smiling, cause someone finally listened and practiced what he preached. This excludes the series 4 VHP, but even then the 1966 til now is upgradeable to a series 4.
