Amazing really. A petrol engine can be resurrected in the same way with some care and attention before attempting to fire it up, but its nowhere near as impressive.

Some helpful translations from the page/backstory:

Quote
We take a break in news making from the Geneva Motor Show, peering at something old and fine instead, such as the Post Office's old Scania bus from 1952 that spins the engine running for many years lull.

Here we see an old Scania Postverk Bus from 1952 with a 135-horsepower D611 diesel engine, which has been a lot of years. The engine turns out to be a gem that coughs up again with the help only from some new, fresh diesel fuel. Just a shame that the fine Molin-body, built in Eskilstuna, is so mangled that it is after many years of non-existent love.

You may wonder what the Post Office is? Before 1994 was named item at the Post Office and the state authority is actually the main reason for Scania exists at all today. Scania Vabis namely bankrupt summer 1921 but thanks to the Post Office order of 15 postal buses in 1922 survived the bus and truck manufacturer. Then, Scania has delivered many different postal buses and trucks to the Post Office and Post Office.

Quote from: Ola Viklund
It is I who filmed this clip .. the Scania has stood in the same place since the 70s. Then run it there under their own steam. The engine would be taken to a sawmill, but he never did. Incidentally, it was the bus my old playhouse before it ended up in this place.
...
Engine O drawer is urlyft(?) and will live on. The body is beyond rescue o will be scrapped. The only thing that was done prior to starting the engagement of a jerry can of diesel instead of the tank. And that all electricity around the motor was disconnected due to a short circuit risk .. Then they were just connect batteries and tjyvkoppla(?) starter ..

I did write Volvo !!! well Volvo and Scania both did trucks and diesels.


From the english text  tjuvkoppla = jump start.   They lifted the engine out and are going to use it.

I used to own a ford transit.
Sat on my drive for 4 1/2 years before some gypsy asked to buy it for £200 (erm.. it was a H plate & this happened about 5 years ago)
We got it started in 10mins after a quick jump to the battery & putting some petrol in the tank.

Was a bit sad to see it go TBH.
