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.
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.
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.
This is my 1981 Oldsmobile 98 Regency Diesel. I just got it a few months ago. Sorry about the poor quality, this is my old camera and I guess I didn't get that new one for Christmas, so I will have go out and buy one. The sound is about 1-second ahead of the video. I got the car from an older guy for $980 with 4 new tires, 2- new batteries, and a full tank of Diesel. It runs and drives like a new car. The original engine blew in 2000 and was replaced with a factory rebuilt unit that blew up when he started it. A piston was 180 degrees the wrong way. He was a diesel mechanic, so he rebuilt it and added better head gaskets and head bolts. He also rebuilt the injection pump to max power. He also added an overdrive transmission and better rear end gears to make the car get 33 mpg @ 55 mph and it really does. He also added an electric fuel pump and converted the old mechanical pump into a vacuum pump to help run stuff. He told me to pour a bit of oil down the extra hose that goes to the mechanical fuel pump every few months to lube the old pump. He also added a fuel filter/water separator with the heater core hoses wrapped around it for heat. He told me to drain the filter once a year- or just replace it. He manually wired all the glow plugs with a push button on the dash. He also added a fast idle toggle switch. I really love this car. The A/C still works also. All the windows work and it starts like a new car. He did all these changes when the car was almost new. He said the secret to make one of these cars last is to let it warm up, add a water separator, and drive it in a respectable manner along with 2000-mile oil changes. The car has about 130,000-miles on it. The rebuilt engine has about 45,000-miles. It is the DX block of course. I love the 30-gallon diesel tank and drove it from Kansas City back to NW Arkansas and the gas hand barley moved. I got a real 33-mpg. I plan to get a "real" digital camera, like 1080 P, and upload more. The car is in the process of being restored. The padded roof is gone, the chrome around the windshield is gone. I drive it up to store fronts and everyone looks and ask about the car. It has a glass pack true dual Exhaust also, but it isn't too loud. You can go through a "drive thru" and not have to kill the car. I have wanted one of these since I was a kid. They are next to impossible to find and the few that can be found are like $8000, or $1500 pieces of rust that may not even run. 95% of these cars tend to be in the Iowa region. I found a few in California. People in California like them because the Diesel was "exempt" from smog testing. These are very neat cars. The dog at the first part is "Bubbie" my Old English Sheep dog. He loves the diesel's sounds and especially the smell of the Exhaust.
I am just over 30 yrs old and plan to keep this car till I die. I will put 100-miles a year on it or so. If the engine dies- I might put a 6.2 Diesel into it, but I will never convert it to gas. Also the car has never been in a wreck since new and has virtually no rust. This was a "Cold Start" @ 28 F with use of the glow plugs though, but not touching the gas-or using the fast idle switch. The factory C.B. and 8-Track still work. Jimmy Carter was still president when this car was being built. I hope you enjoyed this and please put some videos up if you have a 5.7 Diesel. Youtube only has just a small hand full. Please comment on my first video ever. Thanks for watching.
1980 Cutlass Coupe "jogger" ad
Another dealership showroom laserdisc ad, for the 1980 Cutlass Supreme, Supreme Brougham, and Calais. And the audio is still horrible. Not sure if that's ever gonna be able to be cured or not, (ie, if it's recorded that way, or just a function of this ancient player...)
The diesel oldsmobiles
I got 'em. Both engines were seized. So I parted them out/junked them, took the junk money and bought one like the red one but with a gas 307 and it runs/drives, just needs brake lines.
1982 Cadillac Eldorado Diesel start & run
This is a video of a Cadillac that I recently bought to add to my "collection" of Diesel-powered cars. Although this car looked like it had been through a war, it seems to be mechanically sound. I had to replace the whole interior by swapping it from another Eldorado, and I will still need to repair many dings & dents. (this isn't for sale; it's posted for the interest of anyone who hasn't seen a 350 Diesel that still runs.
