First Start Of The 6,2 Diesel In My '81 Caprice
Have been working on this conversion for over a month now, working on it whenever I had spare time. All I'm missing now is the Exhaust and some wiring. Engine is from a 1988 Suburban, I have a video of this engine running in that car. The car had a 350 Olds diesel in it.





1981 GM Oldsmobile 5.7 diesel started after 13 years
I picked up this '81 Oldsmobile Cutlass with the V8 5.7L diesel engine ( 350 DX engine block), I was told it was upgraded with the Goodwrench engine in 1985 and also a new injector pump . It was parked and forgotten in a NJ barn in 2000 , not sure why , and it wasn't started since , but upon installing 2 new batteries it started right up , no noises , knocks or smoke , it runs beautiful !





EPIC Best near fail cold start Detroit Diesel smoke show MCI MC9 bus
*READ This is the first video with my new Samsung F40 Camcorder. My batteries are almost 4 years old, they are tired and my fuel is exceptionally old as well. I haven't added diesel in over 2 years now. I finally had to put some jumper cables on it. I think an 8V71 starts better. It was 26 F during the night during the vid it had warmed up a lil to around 50F. Keep in mind all the fluids/hidden metal are 30-40 F. I have another cold start vid from last year. This year, I had to grab my car to jump the bus off after the first attempt failed. I assume engine rotation speed by the starter affects start up. Even with additives, the diesel is just old. I put 67 gallons in I believe two years ago which filled it to the top, there's about 179 gallons, 95% usable I believe.





I Bought Another Rusted Suburban 6,2 Diesel
I got this rusted 1988 suburban cheap, because of a blown tranny. The engine is really good, thats why I bought it.





Rebuilt, Reworked Oldsmobile Diesel
First full video of the car since I've redone it. New springs, shocks, tires, headliner, door gaskets, window tint, trunk lift struts, a/c compressor, evaporator, heater core, water pump, alternator, radiator, belts, hoses, transmission cooler. Transmission (200C) has been rebuilt. Engine has been rebuilt with NOS injectors, NOS .030 over pistons, new rod bearings, cam bearings, main bearings, camshaft, lifters, Fel-Pro gaskets throughout, ARP head studs, ARP main studs, injector pump rebuilt by Stanadyne's service department, pretty much nothing left untouched.

Starting The 350 Olds Diesel in My 1981 Caprice

1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20 years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap, Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the immediate future.

Original advertising laserdisc info for the 1980 Oldsmobile Diesel engine, audio is harsh, sorry, don't know if it was any better than this in the showrooms though LOL





Olds 5.7 diesel first start-up after rebuild
Got it to run, it was worth it. The loudest, and smokiest diesel in the shop.





Driving in the Olds Diesel
Several people have asked to see more videos driving the Olds Diesel. This is a cold start in the morning (it was about 40 last night, probably 50 in the garage), followed by a cruise around the neighborhood. Turn down your subwoofer - camera picked up some low rumbles that you don't hear while driving...





Arctic cat diesel cold start -25C
I found another cold start video that i made last winter but forgot to upload, in this one the throttle isn't stuck frozen as in the previous video, so the engine is easier to start if i give it a bit throttle, this engine does not have any kind of cold start device that advances the timing or increases the throttle when cold, so that's why it's hard to start without additional throttle, and as soon as i let it go back to idle too quickly when cold, it will stall, that's because the governor is not fast enough to "meet up" the RPM drip. This is a prechamber-diesel, so it would never start without a pre-glow like a direct injected diesel can do. but it did only need one pre-glow cycle, so it will probably start in even colder temperatures with several glow cycles. the squeeking noise is the CVT fan motor that has bad bearings.





RUN AWAY Detroit Diesel! 453-T
DD 453-T runs away! rack gets stuck on valve cover. almost lost some fingers too, it was all i could find. F'ed up new turbo compressor wheel, was only damage thankfully!





Dodge Challenger '70 first start in 4 months
Dodge Challenger '70 First start in 4 months. Old gas, no choke. Driven last time about 10 months ago. Doesn't run very well when cold, gets alot better after running for a couple of minutes. Would prefer it with choke.
