MY 64 Chevy Detroit Diesel 353N Jake brakes
1964 Chevy Factory 4x4 running gear and trans . 353 Detroit diesel, Jake
brakes , Jake now off until I find the correct valve cover or spacer and
rubuild the jakes or buy new ones. With the jakes the tune up was not
correct and I had a loss of power and bad idle you can hear at end of
video. Put truck back to close to where it was with the jake off for now.I
just need to spend the big $$ and have the rack run at a DD dealer. The new
cab now has the acceses cover in the fire wall to better get to the idle
2007 CanAm 800 Outlander max in the back.
4-53T drive by
Quick drive by and shifting gears in my 1948 Chevy with a 1978 Detroit
Diesel model 4-53T and a Roadranger RTO-6610 ten speed transmission.
1959 GMC DETROIT DIESEL SHIFTING
1959 GMC CANNONBALL. DETROIT 6 CYLINDER INLINE 2 CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE. THE
TRANSMISSION IS A 10 SPEED ROADRANGER. TOP SPEED OF THE TRUCK IS 65 MPH. I
TRIED TO DO A MIX OF LOW RANGE TO HIGH RANGE AND BACK TO LOW , SOME DOUBLE
CLUTCH , SOME NO CLUTCH , JAKE SHIFTING . UPSHIFT AND DOWN SHIFT. SOME
HIGHWAY DRIVING AT 50 MPH AND AT THE END CLIMBING A GRAVEL DRIVE ON A 15 %
GRADE. THE TRUCK HAS 9000 MILES ON A FRAME OFF RESTORATION. IT IS NOT
COMMERCIAL AND DOES NOT SMOKE OR LEAK. IT JUST GOES TO SHOWS , PARADES AND
EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS IN ITS WELL DESERVED RETIREMENT. THANKS FOR LOOKING !
THE JAKE HAS A TOGGLE SWITCH TO TURN ON AND OFF , ALSO DEPRESSING THE
CLUTCH OR STEPPING ON THE THROTTLE WILL TEMPORARILY NULLIFY IT. I FLIP
THE SWITCH AT ABOUT 43 SECONDS INTO THE VIDEO. TAKE CARE.
