After more than 25 years outside, on 3April2006, I managed to start the OM315 engine on this truck after I finally managed to repair a sheared injector pump camshaft and a sheared injector pump drive shaft. Someone had fitted an invorrect liftpump to the injectorpump which prevented it from turning all the way round. That broke the shafts many years ago and the truck was left for dead. This truck is my current restoration project. This clip was taken at 20h00 in the evening and it was already dark and the mood was fragile :-).
