Detroit Diesel V12 going to show
1968 Kenworth K125 hauling tractors to a show. Carla also wanted to redeem
herself from taking a 20 second video, so brought the camera! Will get one
of the Emeryville loaded when we have a chance.
Going thru the gears in a CAT V8 powered 80 ton road train
Only watch this if you like big bore V8s and you've got good speakers with
the volume cranked right up! Cab ride on the Nullarbor Plain in South
Australia near the roadhouse. If you've ever wondered how long it takes to
get up to speed @ 80 tons with 600 HP this will give you some idea. More
vids to follow later.
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

screaming old detroit one more run
Just one more delivery for the old girl. She does several of these each
day. Just like the other vids but now with larger injectors, jake brakes
and a reworked governor. She will now turn 2,500 rpm. 671N with a 13 speed
overdrive in a 1976 International.
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.
