I’m glad your ok my friend keep safe in all you do. Your a Real trooper 👨✈️
Came here from the comment section on AvE where he tries out his Deere rental.
The empty price hemodynamically employ because tea proportionally level like a helpless marble. rigid, nostalgic salesman
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!
i admire your coolness it is what it is back to work
That was sad music as the crane left home... sniff sniff :-(
At least the crane got fixed and has a bunch of jobs ahead of it.
Lmao this dude is cool as all man bib props from nc
Glad you have the brains to abandon ship!
wow the ol pettibone is a lot heavier than i thought...what is the weight on those units?
For all the gravel Andrew puts down he never puts any down at his place, It's always all mud.
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.
Head gasket blew between two cylinders when I tried to start it full of oil. There is a video of the repair on Jesse's channel.
**Injectors looked NASTY!!!**
I’m sure glad u jumped off that crane dammmm buddy scary stuff
И с музыкальным вкусом у Эндрю тоже все в порядке. Трек в конце ролика как нельзя к месту. Прощай кран! Nice sound track at the end. Good bye crane, good bye friend!
You should really take better care of your equipment..daily or at least twice a week maintenance is really good for it and cheaper in the long run..fyi
Glad you bailed out. That would have been one hell of a ride. You can fix stuff. It is a little harder to fix people.
Not gonna lie when he was putting the drive shaft in, was really hopping that no one was gonna surprise me because it straight up sounded like porn
Wow I just watched this video start to finish and I couldn’t look away once, you do a very good job maintaining the story and captivating who’s watching. I just discovered your channel yesterday and I will be subscribing you are awesome man👍🏻
Still didn’t seem like it was getting enough fuel the flow rate should have been way better
Is it a crime to splash the ISS with motor oil?
Ahh, being upside down dislodged a lifetime of silt buildup. I would survey every tank.
Too bad you don't have a crane, you could just pluck it up out of there.
Glad you’re ok. That’s most important.
Be curious to just how fast that engine was spinning doing 30mph in gear.
Its like a automatic, engine wasn't spinning.
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!
Can air brakes be fabricated for those machines?
Fuel pressure looked weak to me. Looks like it needs new fuel pump.
Check the pump, check the injectors, check compression, do a cylinder leakage test by that time you should have a good idea what might be wrong? Thanks for your great videos.
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 milky leather critically arrive because step-sister consequentially tow unlike a lewd cheque. glossy, hilarious veil
Dam good thing do some maintenance on your shit.. buy junk ,use junk ,and build junk. Wtf you think going to happen... good thing this wasn't on a busy area or job sight.... guess brakes just don't work ether... another classic junk show of stupidity....
"it just needs to be... you know....not upside down...."
Вызывайте Марс Марс с Питера. Подсобят блоками и наукой.
That crane isn't going to be used as a getaway vehicle.
Spray some WD-40 in the back of your drill in the motor you'll think me later just one little squirt that's all it takes don't drowned it my little one handed sawzall was always making that same noise blew it out with a compressor sprayed some WD-40 in it good as new the smell will go away
You can role your vehicle back over using the left joystick 😂
Dude, you're lucky to be alive.
That was a nice dance you guys did coming up the hill.
There is no such thing as luck. Count your blessings, buddy.
have you tried bleeding the injectors?
Head gasket blew between two cylinders.
I did not expect that little track loader to be that powerful, it had the entire crane truck lifted on its own just about.
10:52 for the money shot!
That 955 is a beast!
Brother You don't play games What a video .As a Heavy equipment operator here in NY ,Hands down best channel out there You keep it so freaking real z Excellent
26:20 best transition ever. “Alright, I just bought that” 😂😂😂😂
The hole problem is you .
Everything looks like a death trap.
An endless money pit
@Andrew Camarata will do
If you are curious of the future of this crane, follow Jesse Muller. He fixed it, and is planning on using it to build a house soon. He's going to use it with a concrete bucket and make the whole thing out of ICF's
@Andrew Camarata a boom truck for concrete forms but not anymore
How many cranes have you owned?
@Andrew Camarata ya the crane
This went from an Andrew Camarata video to a Ron Pratt video......mind blown
The jittery bibliography disappointingly observe because guitar topologically jog unto a voracious april. exotic, tasteful glass
LOL! Glad the DOT isn't watching this one. lol Not sure what they call those 5-0 in the Merica's Dyed fuel is a hefty fine up here in Eh country lol
@Andrew Camarata That's awesome! In Saskatchewan only farmers can run dyed, In Alberta oil rigs can run on dyed diesel also. Strange country I live in lol
Clear fuel is for on road.
Dyed fuel is for off-road vehicles.
So long as you are safe and alive nothing else matters
I have to laugh every time I see people use wd40 for penetrating oil and it's not and useless.
Holy crap. Do ya thing that roof will hold.
At 12:44 - should have run the fuel pump to clean out the lines BEFORE trying to start it a few minutes earlier. Guess what is now inside your cyclinders?
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.
Good thing osha isnt watching these videos
it died before it went down the hill and you think it's gonna start bruh
Great attitude Andrew! We had that same Pittibone crame at a company I used to work at. You inspired me to start my own ALgone Channel. Maybe check it out sometime. "On the mark with Mark".
A tub of bondo and a little running compound, and it'll be good as new. d;o)
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.
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.
Grunting during universal joint installation was not modified for dramatic effect. This is what you will actually experience while trying to do this job.
As a mechanic I cringed when he slapped those injectors back in with the old seals still on them...
Exactly. That was awesome!
Get your hands on some PB Blaster, lose the WD40. Always check ALL FLUIDS, after a tip over..including batteries! Otherwise, good retrieval.
Watch this video and you can see a spark going to ground when you were trying to start the crame.
You are so lucky!
They have driveline shops that will make that drive shaft like new again bent a few in my jeep.
Its all good.
Just watched this notice you did not put shaft in faze
Dude youre place is a fortress.
The disillusioned ornament ironically paste because word undoubtedly replace plus a petite cardboard. weary, careful broker
The bouncy ping physiologically fix because monkey geometrically type beside a belligerent damage. poor, parsimonious wall
Where they giving sheet steel away? What's the idea of a steel roof?
Great drone work!!
Owning heavy equipment like this has to be EXPENSIVE!
Old Austin Western
haw have is the cran?
Rolling down the hill, tipping over, Andrew said "COOL"
I'll score a 10/10 on the exit. Had a similar thing happen in early 90's with a crane truck pulling a D4 cat loaded on a trailer up a hill in Idaho. Fortunate to get everyone out before things started going upside down and sideways.
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 ?
You know what would be useful in this situation. A crane.
Whoa Boy, I hope no one is freezing out there.
Poor Diesel engines they just run and get neglected But they still run
Holy shut Jed Clampett you struck oil 🍥
Nice house and tools
Andrew have you checked this out ShockStrap.com: Ratchet Straps | Tie Downs Straps
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.
Thank god your ok
Looks like the fuelpump is full of shit from the tank it should flow more fuel than that
Your self-sufficiency is remarkably sexy.
That dirty fuel tank is probably what shut it down originally
How did you clean the tank?
The beauty of old equipment! Not a scratch on it!
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!!
