Part 1; Installing new muffler on a GM PD4106 Bus Conversion
Part 1; After installing a new, higher HP Detroit Diesel 8V71 engine, I
determined that the buses original muffler with it's 3.5" outlet is too
small. It was designed to be quiet, but it doesn't flow enough for this
new engine. Part 2 will show the new muffler installed!

International Harvester TD5 Crawler Finally Running after 15 Years
This is a 1959 McCormick International TD5 crawler. The poor thing hasn't
really been running in about 15 years, but was stored inside or covered up
for most of that time. The engine was rebuilt about 10 years ago but never
ran. The injector pump and injectors were rebuilt about 5 years ago. The
main clutch and steering clutches were done, too, but it sat so long
everything rusted solid. It took me several weekends (and one new set of
steering clutch fibers) to get her moving again. The hydraulics are
finished now and all that's left to do is install the grader blade and
loosen up some seized pins!

along our uncrowded path to adventures.

How a 2 stroke detroit diesel engine runs
I have a couple videos of my 2 stroke detroit diesel powered pickup here on
youtube, and I have gotten hundreds and hundreds of questions about how in
the world it runs, and lots of people who do not believe that it really is
a 2 stroke. So, I'm sorry, I don't have the best voice in the world, and
I'm not the best at explaining things or getting the right words to come
out, but I did my best in this video to try to give you an idea of how it
