8V53T Detroit Diesel first start

Detroit Diesel 8V53T, (turbo just removed for test run) this is literally the first starting attempt after bringing it home, it had sat for years. Not so many 8V53 Detroits were made, and very few turbocharged ones, This is one of about four I know of.

6V53TT Silver Detroit Diesel first start (part1)
Detroit Diesel Silver 6V53TT military being fired up for the very first time ever. This unit was originally assembled in 1987 but was never used and until this past year it sat the crate it was shipped in. This 53 series is one of the rare Silver units with cross head-pistons and a bypass blower. It was designed as a single turbo, but has been upgraded to a twin turbo setup. A little sluggish to come awake for the very first time, but now its a true screamin' demon!
