This is an engine project my son and I have started. We are a little bit old school and enjoy anything to do with GM motors, 671, 6v71, 8v71, 12v71 etc. Just love the music of "71 power". It is also a bit of an exercise in welding, grinding, drilling, painting and fitting up of all our goodies we have collected. (Can't wait to get the chrome stacks fitted). This motor came out of a large loader (possibly a terex). It had been internally fully rebuilt with relatively low hours. Since being "ripped" out, it sat on a workshop floor for many years. Externally we have replaced (broken) Exhaust manifolds, (broken) sump, cooling fan (To suck not blow). We have installed a radiator, filters, thermostats and gasket etc.The motor has a V twin truflow compressor fitted and as the project develops we hope to add an instrument panel, air-tanks, battery box, a tidy Exhaust system and fuel tank etc. All in all a handy item to have around the house in case we need to pump up the bike tires...lol!
Detroit Diesel 8v71 project part 4
There will be a part 5 in the coming weeks as the project develops. Were
pretty happy with the motor running smoothly and looking forward to
completing the Exhaust system, fuel
tank, instrument panel. air tanks, and a few other bits and pieces.

EPIC FAIL Turbo blown Detroit Diesel Series 60 12.7 MCI BUS smokey mess!
This engine did not run away, it was not sucking in oil. The driver thought
the bus was on fire and immediately began evacuating passengers as soon as
the bus stopped. For the person that called someone a dumbass and said the
bus started in reverse, absurd! The bus has an automatic transmission - how
is the starter going to crank the engine over in the proper direction THEN
instead of turning right after its already spinning its just starts turning
left? Absurd! The bus was shut off off once and was not restarted, it was
towed from the scene. He shuts it off just as I pass by the rear of the
bus(see annotation). I was behind this listening to the turbo climbing an overpass. There was a loud BOOM,
then smoke everywhere I couldn't see a foot infront of me. turbo let go, leaving a trail of oil. All the
smoke that you see, with out the proper air mix from the turbo the engine is not burning the fuel correctly
so that's why you see all the gray smoke! The engine is running at around
1,000 RPM if the engine had ran away it would be have been loud an in
pieces. A lowboy was called but couldn't pick up due to angle of over pass
and potential for tipping. So, a wrecker was called to hook from the front.

1974 International Transtar 4070A, 8V71, 318 Detroit cold start up
This is just a short video of a walk around of my 1974 4070A International
Transtar and a cold start-up of the truck. The truck had not been started
for a few days and the temp is about 65 degrees the day of this video. The
ole truck starts just as easy @ 20 degrees as it does @ 80 degrees. It is
powered by an 8V71 Detroit Diesel or more famously known as the 318
Detroit, 13 speed Fuller, spring ride reyco suspension, no power steering.
I have a lot of fun in the summer months in this ole truck and is one of
many old Ih cabovers in my collection.
