Some Gensets, pump stations. particularly diesels, if they aren't fully loaded never seat their rings, will be all screwed up, smoke run badly... Brother worked for a CAT dealer, some callouts were to remote irrigation pumps, they just never loaded the CATs, so they added additional load cells, made 'em work, really work, then they settled down, fewer calls for help...

For testing the big locomotive diesels a Western, we'd bring in wet loads, barrels of water, some salt added to lower resistance, plus sliding dividers... Boil em! Later we'd bring in huge dry loads on a semi.. I remember the semi's deck caught fire on one job...But that Diesel WORKED!
