Tiger Tank 131 " Hand Crank Engine Start Up "

16 июня 2013 (09:43:33)

 

The inertia starter " Schwungmasse " works by rotating a heavy mass at speed, once it reaches 60rpm a lever is pulled below the hand cranking arm, this pushes the drive pinion onto the fly wheel, making the engine rotate and start. These men starting the Tiger are very experienced tank mechanics, who volunteer to keep Tiger 131 working.
