V12 Detriot Diesel 525HP
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
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359 Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
453-T Detroit 2 stroke diesel engine in a 1976 GMC pickup
This is just some video of me messing around in my driveway so all you detroit diesel fans can hear the engine more. The last video I put up of this truck became so popular I figured I'd put another one on here. I did not put the engine in myself. It was like that before I obtained the truck. It used to have a 350 gas motor in it.
How a 2 stroke detroit diesel engine runs
I have a couple videos of my 2 stroke detroit diesel powered pickup here on youtube, and I have gotten hundreds and hundreds of questions about how in the world it runs, and lots of people who do not believe that it really is a 2 stroke. So, I'm sorry, I don't have the best voice in the world, and I'm not the best at explaining things or getting the right words to come out, but I did my best in this video to try to give you an idea of how it runs.

First start after getting the front clip and controlls installed. and the first time it moves on its own! The engine was first intalled in a 77 Chev 1ton dually by a Detroit shop. The vid of that truck can be seen on gmbo6969 's page. This is something that I have always wanted to do and I owe him a lot of thanks for this project getting to happen!
