8V71 Open Exhaust in french GMC Astro
Un route de campagne Lorraine, un bruit infernal : Detroit Diesel in action ! Un copain me fait faire un tour avec sa dernière acquisition... GMC Astro de 1974, ex transport Marmeth de Nantua. Le moteur n'est pas un "banal" -6V92T mais bien un vrai V8 sans turbo, un rageur 8V71 qui permet une conduite sportive, et libère pleinement en échappement libre.





GM Detroit Diesel 6-71 Engine Motor Running and Shut Down 2 Stroke THD 4512
Same engine as previous video (please see that one also), increasing RPM. She blows a little smoke, but not bad for being a 1953. Todays junk won't run 50 years from now, so I really take my hat off to this one. Being 2-stroke, she revs up pretty quicky, almost tipping the entire engine/bus frame over! Would be a lot of fun in a rat-rod, log splitter, etc. Nothing sounds like these anymore. This was one of the only truck road sounds people heard from basically 1940 to 1990. This engine will not see a smelter as long as I am alive. 12 volt, reverse rotation. Oil pressure shows 15psi at idle, which is more than enough (increases well with RPM).

1990 GMC Topkick Dumptruck Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1990 GMC Topkick Dumptruck. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this truck while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this truck designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.





A Second Look Under The Hood Of The 1947 GMC 6-71 Powered Diesel Truck (Passengers Side)
Here is another short clip showing the GM diesel in this '47 GMC. I don't know much about this truck or it's engine. Obviously it is an in-line six and it said General Motors on it. I think it might be a Detroit Diesel 6-71. Someone said it was an old PT Boat motor. Shot at the Truckin' For Kids Truck Show at Irwindale,CA. 10-23-10.





1959 GMC DETROIT DIESEL SHIFTING
1959 GMC CANNONBALL. DETROIT 6 CYLINDER INLINE 2 CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE. THE TRANSMISSION IS A 10 SPEED ROADRANGER. TOP SPEED OF THE TRUCK IS 65 MPH. I TRIED TO DO A MIX OF LOW RANGE TO HIGH RANGE AND BACK TO LOW , SOME DOUBLE CLUTCH , SOME NO CLUTCH , JAKE SHIFTING . UPSHIFT AND DOWN SHIFT. SOME HIGHWAY DRIVING AT 50 MPH AND AT THE END CLIMBING A GRAVEL DRIVE ON A 15 % GRADE. THE TRUCK HAS 9000 MILES ON A FRAME OFF RESTORATION. IT IS NOT COMMERCIAL AND DOES NOT SMOKE OR LEAK. IT JUST GOES TO SHOWS , PARADES AND EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS IN ITS WELL DESERVED RETIREMENT. THANKS FOR LOOKING ! THE JAKE HAS A TOGGLE SWITCH TO TURN ON AND OFF , ALSO DEPRESSING THE CLUTCH OR STEPPING ON THE THROTTLE WILL TEMPORARILY NULLIFY IT. I FLIP THE SWITCH AT ABOUT 43 SECONDS INTO THE VIDEO. TAKE CARE.

GMC Crackerbox
Though the Historic Vehicle plate says '77, I'm not sure if that year is accurate to this truck. I don't know nearly as much as I'd like to about these old rigs. I did hear the owner tell another guy that it had a 318 (Detroit Diesel 8V71) in it. Unfortunately I didn't get any video of this neat old Jimmy running. Shot on February 11th, 2012 at the Arizona Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association Show in Glendale, Arizona.

Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a 50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever! Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RoadkillShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google + - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com
