New Engine Start Up
After 10 weeks of turning wrenches, the bus is ready to back out! Except my camera ran out of memory!!!! I missed the "airing up" and "backing out" part!

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!

GM PD4106-1616 Bus Movement #2
Mark gets back behind the wheel to get the bus in a better position. At this point, it was warmed up; much less smoke! Gives you an idea we did not have much room to work with - plus this bus is not only a stick-shift, but does not have power steering.

The Funky Diesel Benz - "Opposite of a Sleeper"
What do you think when you see a smokestack protruding from the hood of an old school 80's Mercedes? Ls swap? Racecar?!? NOPE! At Street Car Takeover Orlando we ran into this coal rolling, head turning, 18-second 1/4 mile DIESEL  BENZ. As the owner says, "it's the opposite of a sleeper", and he's exactly right..but a slow E.T. doesn't stop ANYBODY from having fun with this car. Looks the like beginning of a badass project! We can't wait to see how far it has come the next time we run into it!! ------------------------------------ 1320Video Gear ► http://www.1320video.com/shop/ Facebook ► http://facebook.com/1320videos Instagram ► https://instagram.com/1320video/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/1320video Submit your video to us ►http://goo.gl/forms/TbQPwl9qFq
