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.
V12 Detriot Diesel 525HP
Setting the engine up and breaking it in.Remember this engine is just being
started after a rebuild so that's why it's smoking from the assembly lube
and the rack will be set-up to stop the hunting etc etc. Then the oil is
changed and the engine painted. These engine's go into Euclid mining rock
trucks,and they were in many other equipment/vehicles.The engine has
rebuild heads,turbo's, blower, water
pump,all internal parts and the air compressor All done in the great north
1927 REO Truck - Slide Pack
I'm working on an old 1927 REO truck that has been left open to the weather
for many years and as a result is in a fairly poor state. However it is not
past the point where it cannot be restored, so join me on a journey to see
if I can get it back on the road.

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!

4-53 Detroit Diesel in a '89 Chevrolet C1500
Sounds GREAT! Owner installed a two stroke 4-53 (four cylinders, 53 CID per
cylinder) Detroit Diesel into their '89 Chevrolet half ton truck. Saw this
at Carcraft summer nationals 2010.
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.

EPIC Best near fail cold start Detroit Diesel smoke show MCI MC9 bus
*READ This is the first video with my new Samsung F40 Camcorder. My
batteries are almost 4 years old, they are tired and my fuel is
exceptionally old as well. I haven't added diesel in over 2 years now. I
finally had to put some jumper cables on it. I think an 8V71 starts better.
It was 26 F during the night during the vid it had warmed up a lil to
around 50F. Keep in mind all the fluids/hidden metal are 30-40 F. I have
another cold start vid from last year. This year, I had to grab my car to
jump the bus off after the first attempt failed. I assume engine rotation
speed by the starter affects start up. Even with additives, the diesel is
just old. I put 67 gallons in I believe two years ago which filled it to
the top, there's about 179 gallons, 95% usable I believe.
37419 COLD START
37419 Trying it's best to start in very cold conditions on the 8th February
2007 at Old Oak Common Depot LONDON UK.
The temperature on this date was -01c - 30.21F .
The power unit is clearly COLD hence the reason it is struggling to
start.It does start once the cylinder temperature rises around the 1:12 min
So,Please, Please stop telling us all how cold it is in your country this
video is not about that.All comments made about how cold it is in your
country will be deleted,we are not interested.Thanks.
"One Million hits" thank you all for the views.
