That was when cat built a real engine. The 8 inch stroke is impressive. I worked on a farm and the guy always told me about his RD7, I do remember being shocked that it was 3 cylinders.

Squatch253 is a good machinist and mechanic. Check out some of his other videos. I know him from a couple of other sites.
