Default Video of P&H H418 or H312 in operation?

Anyone out there have a video of a P&H H312 and/or H418 in operation? I have so many great memories of these machines from my younger days...screamin' Detroits...watched them in my neighborhood as a kid and was able to operate them as I got a little older...

~Are you sure they were Detroits? P&H made a 2-stroke Diesel that screamed just like a Detroit.

The H418 used the Detroit 6v53 and the H312 used the Detroit 4-53 diesels.you can find videos of them on Youtube.The only way to get any power out of a 453 is to scream the hell out of it,great engines but when driving hyd pumps you need horsepower,escpecially in a open-center system like the old P+H's.In the 312 you're sitting only 4ft away from the engine..definitely need some hearing protection for that unit.
