Starting The 350 Olds Diesel in My 1981 Caprice

I recently bought this nice Caprice with a 5,7 Diesel. I'm not going to keep this engine, I have a plan for a cool project with a different motor, so I'll keep you guys posted.

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.

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 driving...

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.
