My New 1986 turbo Diesel Ford Ranger 0-60 The truck has an ACTUAL 91K MILES. Super Rare find! Very nice truck that needs very little body work. Gonna play with the Injection pump to give it a little more power soon, but still 10 times faster than my 83 non-turbo.
1986 Ford Ranger 2.3 Turbo Diesel
Just bought a 1986 Ford Ranger with the rare 2.3 turbo Diesel. Truck has been sitting for 10 years!
NO JOKE The tags ran out back in 1998 and it still had a full tank of fuel.
(99 cents/gallon) But i pulled it down the road and it fired up! I have the
timing belt cover off to make sure the timeing belt wasn't going to break
before i started so its exposed and i have the alternator off. Anyone have
parts i would love to buy some. Enjoy!
Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride:
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts
Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame
has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a
3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from
the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single
cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is
similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm
max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:

0-60 1990 Stock 7.3 IDI Diesel
Started off in 2nd gear (normal driving take-off) After I was moving, pedal
went down to the floor! Started moving at 0:03. I'll have to do a re-take
of this and keep the RPM's higher next time.
