1977 Military M551 Detroit Diesel 6V53T - First Run - Leid Diesel - 11-26-2010
This is a video of my 1977 General Motors/Detroit Diesel 6V53T engine It operates on a 2 - Cycle engine design dating back to 1938 The engine is 318 cubic Inches (53 cubic inches per cylinder) ~335 horsepower - with N70 Injectors and the TV8104 turbo This engine was pulled from an M551 Sheridan Tank. This was my first big engine rebuild. Alot of time, energy and money went into this project. I am pretty happy with the results. I made mistakes, I learned alot, and I made a lot of new friends. It is a project most people my age do not take on. That being said, I think I did a pretty good job so far. History on this engine: I completely disassembled this engine after finding out that the engine had stripped crankcase gears. It took three thorough cleanings to remove all of the dirt/grime/loose metal and rust from the inside of the engine. Once clean I attempted to rebuild the engine myself. I was nearly finished when disaster struck. Two of the oil suppression rings had snapped off the 2R piston. This little problem resulted in the fourth full engine cleaning. This time, I wrapped every piece in plastic wrap, to prevent any dirt/dust/debris from interfering with the engine rebuild. I brought every piece up to the nearest Detroit Diesel 2 - cycle specialist. (Leid Diesel in Newville, Pennsylvania) When the owner, Timothy, said that the liners had about 200,000 miles of wear on them, I decided to have all of the pistons/liner/rings replaced. For a tank engine to have that kind of wear, the previous owners clearly ran it too hard and for far too long. It was funny looking at their expressions' when I dropped off individually sealed bags of pieces. That was a first for them, but every engine re-builder knows that dirt is the enemy, so every precaution needs to be taken to ensure clean serviceable parts. During initial dis-assembly, I noticed that some parts just weren't adding up properly. The engine had turbo pistons and naturally aspirated liners, mismatching camshafts, naturally aspirated heads with four different types of valves, a natural blower on a turbo block, and so forth. I made sure to fix all of the irregularities, and in the process I converted the military engine into a truck engine. For the most part, the engine is a silver engine, with silver heads/cams, and it will have a silver turbo coming shortly. I swapped out the mismatching 7 and V7 cams for matching low lift-low velocity camshafts (V7L) Both cylinder heads were replaced with rebuilt silver 6V53 heads (One cast in 2001, the other in 2002) The original 16 plate oil coolers were replaced with two 18 plate coolers All of the liners/rings were replaced. One piston was replaced, and the other 5 were polished up. The crankcase gears were replaced, as were all of the bearings and gaskets. Finally, the military aluminum SAE#3 flywheel housing was swapped out for a cast iron SAE#2 flywheel housing, so I can mount a big manual transmission behind it Every piece of this engine was cleaned and inspected by myself, and later inspected by the folks at Leid Diesel This project took a year to get to this point. This project would not have been possible without continued support from my family, Grigg Mullen, Jim Clarke, Andrew Leamer, Daniel Renovetz, Jason Hughes, Anthony Sgroi, and the folks at Leid Diesel Service (Timothy, Harold, Phillip, Ervin, Jeremy, Frank) Stay tuned for updated videos, Thanks for watching, You can see the entirety of the rebuild on 4BTSWAPS: http://www.4btswaps.com/forum/showthread.php?11614-My-6V53T Christopher Kouttron

6V53TT Silver Detroit Diesel first start (part1)
Detroit Diesel Silver 6V53TT military being fired up for the very first time ever. This unit was originally assembled in 1987 but was never used and until this past year it sat the crate it was shipped in. This 53 series is one of the rare Silver units with cross head-pistons and a bypass blower. It was designed as a single turbo, but has been upgraded to a twin turbo setup. A little sluggish to come awake for the very first time, but now its a true screamin' demon!
