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.





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 driving...





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.





Olds 5.7 diesel first start-up after rebuild
Got it to run, it was worth it. The loudest, and smokiest diesel in the shop.

Starting The 350 Olds Diesel in My 1981 Caprice
I recently bought this nice Caprice with a 5,7 Diesel. I'm not going to keep this engine, I have a plan for a cool project with a different motor, so I'll keep you guys posted.





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 !





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...





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.





More Oldsmobile diesel smoke!!! Part 2
My Oldsmobile diesel delta 98 blowing some smoke.





Chevrolet Caprice 5.7 diesel cold start
Starting my 1981 Caprice at -15 celcius. Started really well with good glow plugs. Engine is original 350DX with TH350C transmission.





1982 Cadillac Coupe DeVille DIESEL
Have you ever seen one of these in person? Not many are left today. This car has been gone through for reliability, if you can consider that possible for an Olds 350 diesel. This car (since its an '82) has the improved DX block, over the D block that was produced first. The D block and its fuel system were pretty horrid. The DX is a far better engine, but either can be worked with to become much more reliable. I personally believe the DX ha more potential. Is it a powerhouse? No way, but gets respectable fuel economy for such a big car, and hasn't given me any trouble so far. I just love the expressions from people I see on the road and at the truck stops where I fuel up. Look for more videos of this car in the future!





Cadillac Seville 5.7 diesel
First full video of the car. New tires, alternator, belt, water pump, radiator, batteries, transmission cooler. Engine has been rebuilt with all new bearings, camshaft, lifters, Fel Pro gaskets, APR head and main studs etc...... This car has the D block, never had any trouble with the engine. Change oil every 1500 miles, because here in a mountain country like Norway the 5.7 diesel must work 100% to not fall behind.





Oldsmobile Delta 88 & 98 -1977 to 1984
2 doors and 4 doors.





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 http://gmlongroof.4umer.com/t272-hybrid-longroof-locomotive 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. The Kinks: Fresh batteries, cabling, starter, rotors, pads calipers, fresh 3' Exhaust, new to me caprice seats. The Wrinkle: 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.
