What an Engine!
This video features a 1938 Yanmar 2DG which was believed to be the only surviving Yanmer 2DG engine today. It was built back in 1938 to drive a generator aboard a Japanese aircraft carrier.
Got to say, it was pretty impressive to see. In fact, you know that you got a proper engine right there when it needs a tractor to get started. The sound of the engines is pretty impressive as well. This footage was taken during the 2023 Newby Hall Tractor Fest.
