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.
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...
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 !
