Default AAZ in an ocean going research vessel

As the title states here is a you tube video of the engine running. The project is being done in Tulsa Oklahoma, the furthest inland seaport.

Seeing these engines run with no coolant always makes me cringe. The life of the water pump bearing is not something I would want rolling around in the back of my brain. Always nice to see TDI’s being used in unusual applications though.

The AAZ's water pump is run by the external belt, it doesn't care if there is no coolant or not.

At 4:00, did that timing belt look a little loose to anyone else?
