Default Caterpillar Sixty running with a vacuum leak video



The shrimp in the plain black shirt is me. I think we have a slight leak houston
This is the first time in 5 years this 60 has run. Apparently another crack opened up in the manifold. No wonder it wouldn't start by hand

The cylinders are heavily oversized. They were an aftermarket set built 1/4" over, then bored 0.080" on top of that. Add a set of 3/4" pop-up domed pistons and a twin-stack setup and we have music!

Nope, we never got it to smoke at all. The stacks were totally clean. Even while cranking it with gas slobbering out the intake and several HEALTHY doses down the priming cups. I think the 1/16" by 5" crack helped lean the mixture out somewhat.
