1977 Detroit Diesel 6V53T - Second Run - At Home - 11-27-2010
My 6V53T running for the first time at home.
We had some trouble getting the engine to start (bad jumper cables)
Jimmy sure is a screemer. Anyone who owns a Detroit knows what I am talking
about. You can literally feel your brain rattle inside of your head, with
the touch of the throttle.
Jimmy is smoking a bit in this video, because the turbocharger is not installed (Ai Research TV8104)
Otherwise, enjoy the sound and stay tuned for more videos

This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Loading Up A Big Rig Diesel Dragster
This twin turbo V8 Detroit Diesel
powered dragster was being loaded onto it's trailer after being run at the
2010 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. I think the cab is a Kenworth.
6V53TT Silver Detroit Diesel first start (part1)
Detroit Diesel Silver 6V53TT military being fired up for the very first
time ever. This unit was originally assembled in 1987 but was never used
and until this past year it sat the crate it was shipped in. This 53
series is one of the rare Silver units with cross head-pistons and a bypass
blower. It was designed as a single turbo, but has been upgraded to a twin turbo setup. A little sluggish to come awake for
the very first time, but now its a true screamin' demon!

MY 64 Chevy Detroit Diesel 353N Jake brakes
1964 Chevy Factory 4x4 running gear and trans . 353 Detroit diesel, Jake
brakes , Jake now off until I find the correct valve cover or spacer and
rubuild the jakes or buy new ones. With the jakes the tune up was not
correct and I had a loss of power and bad idle you can hear at end of
video. Put truck back to close to where it was with the jake off for now.I
just need to spend the big $$ and have the rack run at a DD dealer. The new
cab now has the acceses cover in the fire wall to better get to the idle
