1903 Curved dash Oldsmobile Completed and Running
Well here it is finished and running as sweet as a nut. This was just
before a test drive which I was going to film but there is a lot to do when
driving it (steering, gears, mixture and spark setting) so I didn't manage
that. But as the client wanted it to run (which no-one had managed for
about 4 years) I was pleased with the result. It drove well too! For more

Digging into my Rocket 350
Now that I've got the engine pulled from my 1970 Cutlass Supreme, it's time
ot tear it down a bit and get ready for some cleaning and upgrades!
Oldsmobile Rocket 350 running on a homemade test stand
Hello to all those Oldsmobile fans out there!!!
This is my first engine build and also my first ever YouTube Video, so
bear with me..lol. This engine came out of a 1970 olds cutlass without A/C.
I kept the internals stock because its a great engine just as it came from
the factory. It has a Mondello balancer and sealed power cam and lifters.
Also added an HEI distributor and R46sz plugs for easier starts and
hopefully better fuel economy on high octane(91-93). Ask if you want
details on the motor or anything else, Bill
gm 5.7 350 Olds Turbo Diesel Station Wagon
Finally One year after its put in we have a video!!!! And 20,000 Miles
Later. This is what we put the Oldsmobile turbo Diesel in, a 1988 Buick Estate Wagon. There
is Some video of the engine running in the car and the pressure gauge. It
runs up to about 7 Psi when we have a load while driving. Pretty nice
running car, we have got up to 30MPG on the highway, and just regular daily
driving we get an average of about 24MPG, from what my father said.
World's Greatest Wagon? - /BIG MUSCLE
• BIG MUSCLE GARAGE
Sometimes old cars break, it's just what happens. While some may see this
as an inconvenience, we here at /BIG MUSCLE took it as an opportunity to
expand our horizons, take a chance, and venture to a place we rarely
frequent - the drag strip. Our plan was to film, talk to and get an idea of
what racers go through when they run their cars down the 1,320. Everything
was going great, until that is, they told us WE could race. We showed up in
our 1992 Chevrolet Caprice wagon, aka, the Battle Wagon, so we knew we
weren't going to set any records. What we weren't prepared for though, was
the amount of fun we'd have running one of the slowest vehicles on the
planet, at one of the fastest places in Northern California.
David Vs. Goliath
Goliath wins here. '87 Caprice wagon Vs. '07 Chevy Cobalt. Both are our
daily drivers. Not the quickest run in the world, but this is just the
first test day after the engine swap in the wagon. keep in mind that you
can still hear the wagon OVER the loudspeakers until more than a quarter
