This is our free 1966 Peterbilt starting up cold that has a big cam 1 400 cummins. The pump is timed at 80 so it shakes and rattles and lopes until it's warmed up. It's getting 6" quiet spool straight pipes very shortly. I'll see about taking the mufflers off this weekend.
85 Peterbilt cold start after 2 years
This was a friend of ours truck that passed away last year due to cancer.
(RIP!) It's now ours and we might have to pull the big cam 3 out of it if
the 66 Peterbilt has more problems then we think.
Pulling a 49 peterbilt out from its grave
Here is a 49 peterbilt that has a 280 cummins and mack rearends, and a 5+4
transmission. I said 270 cummins and SQHD rears but its got mack bogey
rears and a 280 cummins. We are helping a friend of ours restore this. We
pulled this out 2 weekends ago.
1955 Kenworth 523 Bullnose
Here's a video I made for my buddy Mr David since he is selling the truck.
This is the final run in the backwoods of Louisiana before the truck gets
picked up. He still has a knack for the two sticks even after his recent
brain surgery a little over 5 months ago.
Shifting my Pete 358 twin stick. [HD]
Jammin Gears in my 358 Pete, hauling sand to a road building project.
I'm not a pro truck driver. I just bought this dump truck to haul some
material around on my ranch. I edited out everything but the shifting.
1972 Peterbilt 359M with Caterpillar 1693TA, Cold Start, Part 1
Starting the Legend on a beautiful fall day. By the way it starts you would
think it is 20 degrees outside. It was in the mid 60s this day. You have to
use the preheat glow plugs even when the temp is in the 70s. The system
works very well when used properly. I have started this truck in below zero
temps without being plugged in with no problem.
Old Peterbilt Cold Start
The Phantom starting The Ghost. 1975 Peterbilt 359 NT88 Cummins. 30 degrees

Peterbilt 359 and it's powered with a 12v-71N non turbo and a RTO-12513 tranny and has 5:29 rear
ends.. This has 6" straight stacks on it. Yes, it has true dual stacks on
it, no Y-Pipe.
Free 66 Peterbilt Cummins piston rattle
Some guy that drove this thing before we got it forgot to turn the fan on.
Pistons tend to stick to the cylinder walls with high heat. This is a big
cam 1 400 cummins timed at 80* on the pump.
1968 GMC Water Truck 671 Detroit Diesel Cold Start First Start for the Season.
The Old 68 GMC comes out of the woods for another Fire Season. Wasn't
enough fuel in the tank for the pump to pick it up because of the grade it
was parked on. A little purgin, starting fluid and 15 gallons of fuel
later, it's ready to make more episodes!
The 48 Brill turned out to be a 46. It's still here waiting for the
transporter to take it to it's new home. I'll post the departure video when
the time comes.
