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.
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
The Oldsmobile Diesel Junk Yard Experience.
Scavenging through the junk yard for Lincoln Town Car parts led me to a
1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 that actually still had a 350 Diesel V8 under the
hood. Not having seen one in the junk yard for 10 years, and believing that
I knew who the car formerly belonged to, it was quite clear that the
experience of pulling an Oldsmobile Diesel engine from the junk yard may
never happen again. Plans for the following weekend were changed as I was
determined to pull the engine out rain or shine, with or with out help.
Some of the people in the yard had never heard of nor even seen one. With a
busy schedule and the yard being nearly Two hours away, it was a do or die
situation...The result was...well...just watch...
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

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.
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 !
1980 Lada 2106 Cold Start -19°C
Starting the 1980 Lada 2106 on a cold morning... My Mercedes diesel didn't
start without blockheater, but with battery cables the old Lada started!..
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!
Supercharged 3,5HP Briggs First Test
- First test of my little project. The "Supercharger" is a emissions air pump from an old
car. The carburator is built into a pressurized box so it has same pressure
on outside and inside of the carburator. The carb on it in this video is
from a 4hp Briggs, and even with mixture screw all the way out it doesn't
get enough fuel because of the main jet inside the carb, I have mounted a
second carb on the intake side of the Supercharger also, it's not in use in the video,
but I have plans to hook it up. The custom beltpulley on the startercup, I
have made myself also, just welded a part of a belt pulley on the starter
cup. I hope to make updates with new videos of the project..
