First Start Of The 6,2 Diesel In My '81 Caprice
Have been working on this conversion for over a month now, working on it
whenever I had spare time. All I'm missing now is the Exhaust and some wiring. Engine is from a 1988
Suburban, I have a video of this engine running in that car. The car had a
350 Olds diesel in it.
Rebuilt, Reworked Oldsmobile Diesel
First full video of the car since I've redone it. New springs, shocks,
tires, headliner, door gaskets, window tint, trunk lift struts, a/c
compressor, evaporator, heater core, water pump, alternator, radiator,
belts, hoses, transmission cooler. Transmission (200C) has been rebuilt.
Engine has been rebuilt with NOS injectors, NOS .030 over pistons, new rod
bearings, cam bearings, main bearings, camshaft, lifters, Fel-Pro gaskets
throughout, ARP head studs, ARP main studs, injector pump rebuilt by
Stanadyne's service department, pretty much nothing left untouched.
1981 GM Oldsmobile 5.7 diesel started after 13 years
I picked up this '81 Oldsmobile Cutlass with the V8 5.7L diesel engine (
350 DX engine block), I was told it was upgraded with the Goodwrench
engine in 1985 and also a new injector pump . It was parked and forgotten
in a NJ barn in 2000 , not sure why , and it wasn't started since , but
upon installing 2 new batteries it started right up , no noises , knocks or
smoke , it runs beautiful !
Driving in the Olds Diesel
Several people have asked to see more videos driving the Olds Diesel. This
is a cold start in the morning (it was about 40 last night, probably 50 in
the garage), followed by a cruise around the neighborhood. Turn down your
subwoofer - camera picked up some low rumbles that you don't hear while
Drive Out Of Deep Snow 1980 Olds 6,2 Diesel
An old video from '94. The car is a 1980 Oldsmobile, originaly had a 5,7
Olds diesel, but my dad put a 6,2D from a chevy pickup in it, he also
fitted a rebuilt 700 tranny with OD and lockup and a LSD differensial, it
was an awesome car!!
Cadillac Deville 6.2 Diesel
this is my Cadillac Deville 1984 6,2 diesel (Originaly 4,1) just put in
sweet 6,2 GMC jimmy. I use the original tranny , I also had 1981 Cadillac
Deville 5,7 diesel for scrap, needed the engine mounting and lots more
stuff from that car . You can also see in the garage dodge van 350, Dodge
dart 1974, cord 1936, Volvo 850 2,3 turbo and the orange engine 318 cc will be put

Diesel Cadillac Quiet Ride Inside
It did warm up a bit and quiet down but still this thing was a nice ride
inside as compared to what you would think after hearing it start up cold.
The Oldsmobile Diesel Junk Yard Experience.
Scavenging through the junk yard for Lincoln Town Car parts led me to a
1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 that actually still had a 350 Diesel V8 under the
hood. Not having seen one in the junk yard for 10 years, and believing that
I knew who the car formerly belonged to, it was quite clear that the
experience of pulling an Oldsmobile Diesel engine from the junk yard may
never happen again. Plans for the following weekend were changed as I was
determined to pull the engine out rain or shine, with or with out help.
Some of the people in the yard had never heard of nor even seen one. With a
busy schedule and the yard being nearly Two hours away, it was a do or die
situation...The result was...well...just watch...
2 Owner 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royal Brougham
This is a Very nice 2 Owner Oldsmobile Delta 98 Royale Brougham. It is a
VERY NICE car and runs and steers wonderfully. If you are looking for a
clean 80's Boxy GM in the 80's models you will be hard pressed to find a
cleaner one. This is it I love these 1 & 2 Owner cars people seem to
maintain them better. Inside is Beautiful on this car. Make sure and check

Diesel Buick Roadmaster Wagon Coldstart
Here it is coldstart of one known 6.2 diesel 1991 roadmaster wagon. -10c
not plugged in, sun was up for maybe half hour.
Can't lay claim to the swap but I can lay claim to it's resurrection. Here
is the write-up
The car was sitting for a year and I knew there were kinks to be ironed
out, which for the most part have been done, it was the wrinkle that hurt
teh ego and pocketbook the most.
Fresh batteries, cabling, starter, rotors, pads calipers, fresh 3' Exhaust, new to me caprice seats.
A new to me 700r4 after the estimated 250k mile trans pump failure before I
even got the thing plated.
Up next is a fresh set of injectors and glow plugs, getting 28mpg on the
highway now, hoping for 35-38 after the freshen up.
