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.
Detroit 8v71 runs after 40 years of sitting!
Pulled this out of a GMC astro cab over truck. it was last run in 73 when the motor was rebuilt. it was parked and the company went out of business and never came to pick the truck up. I pulled it out and got the motor back to life. It only has a few hours on it and is in great shape.
