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
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 !
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.
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!!
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!
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...)
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Buick Century Diesel
This is a quick walk around of my 1982 Buick Century with the factory
diesel motor. Late 70's and early 80s Gm diesel cars and light trucks came
with factory 350 diesel V8 and 4.3 V6 diesels. these cars and trucks are
very rare so I've done by best to make a running and driving example. In
the most rare form these diesels came with a 4 speed standard Trans-axle.
this was only offered in the Pontiac 6000 and Chevy Celebrities, along with
and unknown model's of RWD cars. As scene in my other videos. i have spend
well over 3 years rebuilding, moding and making this car street ready.
The car is build on the GM front wheel drive A-body platform, those
allowing me to add many upgrades and tweaks from other years. i have taken
the time to add a quick ratio steering rack FE3 options Oldsmobile's found
in 88+ model years. I have also swapped in a custom Trans-axle setup using
a 4 speed Muncie trans-axle found 84-86 Chevy Celebrities and Pontiac
6000's. This Trans-Axle is also found in 84-88 Pontiac Fiero's. the clutch
noise is due to using a clutch with a hub dampener designed for a gas
engine so it chatters at any rpm below 1500.
The Engine has been totally rebuilt by my self using mods from a few other
Oldsmobile diesel enthusiasts. the motor is bored .020 over, with total
seal gap less piston rings. the cam is ground down just a touch. I've added
Harland Sharp full roller rockers from a Oldsmobile 455. this was a very
easy upgrade due to the fact that the 350 and 4.3 diesel motors use big
block Oldsmobile rocker arms. the valve train is a full roller setup as
these motors came with factory roller lifters. other mods include a full
balance job and ARP rod bolts from a BBC. hopefully making for a long
as the car sits i need to take it to have it emission tested but it should
pass will flying colors. Fort Collins Colorado I will see you at the car
1980 Buick Electra Dealer Demonstration
This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model
In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer
PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used
for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes.
Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high
failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing
process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well
these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then
coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would
not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating
can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did.
These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player
that uses a laser tube.
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.
gm 5.7 diesel 350 turbo vid. 4 of 4
This is the final of 4 videos. We all believe that we have the Timing in
the right spot. There is some views of the turbo. This engine has a turbo from a 6.5l GM diesel, and the turbo is running from both manifolds.
