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

Detroit Diesel 6V53T idling in '79 F250
Here is a video of our '79 F250 powered by a Detroit Diesel 6V53T idling. Sorry for the choppy video, as I was walking on top of the plow and darn near fell off on the one edge. In the near future, I am going to turn up the idle speed a bit and adjust the idle buffer screw a bit to get some of the surge out.
