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

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

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!

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.

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

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.
