    You probably lost the crush washers on the injectors when you took them out seems like it loss of compression on at least a couple cylinders!

    Your videos are always more entertaining when you break something, aka fixing stuff. It will be interesting to hear what the engine issues are. I would guess some water might have made it to an injector and that can blow the tip of it off. Hopefully it's not an injector pump issue. It needs to have a water separator installed before the fuel filters. I didn't notice if it had a primary and secondary fuel filter, if not one needs to be installed. The engine sounds good but it is definitely not running on all cylinders. That white smoke is a tell tale sign of water in the exhaust. That could be caused by a cracked block or head or it might just be a build up of water in the exhaust stack. People have a tendency to not do much maintenance on stuff they are going to sell so it's a good idea to clean the fuel tank on something that is more than 30 years old and to change all the filters and check the condition of the fluids on everything else.

    On an old Pettibone like that the brakes are regular hydraulic but with a Hydra-booster powered by the outrigger pump. The engine stops and so does the boost. His leg is not big enough to hold on a hill. But he has a parking brake which is a drum on the output of the drop box. But it is for parking on level ground and will pull through it too. The best parking brake is to put the jacks down, but the motor stopped and they could not extend either. Jumping out was the best decision he will ever make. Those old cranes are sold off cheap due to 1- a bad engine, 2- a leaking hydraulic swivel inside the turret or needing the boom slide pads replaced. Good luck!

    lol i was about to say move the camera bro there's gonna be oil jetting out of those. My friend rolled his offroader once and we did this to get the oil out, it pretty much atomized the oil into a fine mist all over my truck that was parked next to it haha

    The brakes probably arent working on that crane very good because the engine isn't creating enough vacuum for the booster to work properly.

      Someone said that it has a hydraulic brake booster so when the engine stopped he lost the ability to both apply the brakes and to lower the outriggers as a stop gap measure.

    I used to have a walker super bee lawn mower. The thing was a death trap. If the one drive belt broke then the mower would roll all the way down the hill and you coldnt' stop it. The parking brake on it wasn' designed to stop it either. Im surprised nobody died that owned that mower. if there was a tree it would stop you.

  • Vincent Rolfe

    I would think due to the dirty fuel and filter and lines that the injectors need to be tested; they could be bad. Usually a replacement engine on a Diesel motor is not as necessary as on a gas motor so fuel delivery is limiting your horsepower and without replacing those fuel parts the thing just is not going to perk. Test one injector to start with.

    Sounds to me when trying to start its only firing on one, one and half, or two cylinders from the six. When running it won't rev, and it lacks power to drive itself. Whip the head off and see whats going on I'd say. Compression test before hand. Anyone else ?

    3:20 You know what is funny? When I watched you jump out of that crane I thought, yep, I would have done the exact same thing. Why? I also grew up riding three wheelers all over the country side. You know right away when to jump and the earlier the better usually. You can't think about it, you just get up and off and get clear. I don't know why it reminded me of riding three wheelers but then you mentioned it and I thought, yep.

    I see your delima but if you loosen up your injectors crank it over see which cylinder has compression then take PB blaster and pour it down the cylinders that have little or no compression, and let it set for 7 days then put an old towel over the holes. Crank it until all is dry then reinstall injectors, bleed the fuel system and drive I just fixed an old 135 MF and it unstick the rings and it works fine. It may be worth the time. Its up to you good luck!!

    You ask, no beg for grief, when not cleaning before disassembly. I didn't see the wheels blocked while working on repairs. What do blocks cost? Make a set of v blocks for checking drive shaft straightness. You are doing your best to get yourself maimed over stupid stuff. I like you and hope for you to stick around. Are the injectors clogged?
