"Barn Find" First Start: 1982 Olds Delta 88 5.7L /350 c.i. Diesel

Drive in the Chevrolet Caprice Diesel

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 !
