If you don't know what a Lanz Bulldog is ,enjoy ! IIRC it's a 5 litre single cylinder diesel with hot bulb starting .I'm not sure there's a new market for these today .:D

I was at a boat show here in Auckland once when there was a displayed Cat diesel motor (huge) that was going to be put into a new Tug for the Auckland Harbour Board.
Anyway someone decided to start it so connected up fuel, water etc then turned it over........it took a couple of tries before it issued a very large puff of black smoke then ran for a minute maybe before running out of fuel.
The point is that the smoke cloud rose to the top of the building where it set off the smoke/fire alarms and everyone had to evacuate the building
The Fire Brigade even turned up.
FOR SOME REASON THE CAT REPS/SALESPEOPLE COULDN'T BE FOUND AND NO DEALER APPAREL WAS IN SIGHT EITHER.
