Detroit Diesel 8v71 Project part 1

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!

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.

Setting the engine up and breaking it in.Remember this engine is just being started after a rebuild so that's why it's smoking from the assembly lube and the rack will be set-up to stop the hunting etc etc. Then the oil is changed and the engine painted. These engine's go into Euclid mining rock trucks,and they were in many other equipment/vehicles.The engine has rebuild heads,turbo's, blower, water pump,all internal parts and the air compressor All done in the great north of Canada
