Olds 5.7 Diesel First Start
First start after taking an engine that sat in a field (in a car) for 17
years and was seized. Pistons were machined to drop the compression ratio
to 18:1, piston rings un-seized from the pistons and reassembled using new
head gaskets and ARP head bolts. Almost all parts with the exception of
seals and rocker arms were reused. The rocker arms ate away at the tip of
the valves and had no other option than replacement. The valve stems were
ground back to flat using a 2" sanding disc.
The injection pump was disassembled to remove a deteriorated governor ring
and the governor assembly was welded solid (the ring only serves to reduce
vibration in the assembly and therefore a smoother idle). The injectors
were taken apart, cleaned and pop tested (a couple were seized). They were
then set to pop at 2300 psi, instead of the factory 1800, and tested for
The engine initially ran rough, but on subsequent fires has continued to
smooth out. The engine will receive a super charger from a 3.8 Buick and
ultimately be put to duty in the 24 Hours of Lemons. What could go wrong?
First Start Of The 6,2 Diesel In My '81 Caprice
Have been working on this conversion for over a month now, working on it
whenever I had spare time. All I'm missing now is the Exhaust and some wiring. Engine is from a 1988
Suburban, I have a video of this engine running in that car. The car had a
350 Olds diesel in it.

The information that i have learned though books, and by visually seeing
the insides of a Stanadyne/Roosa Master DB-2 Injection pump. The one in the
video is out of a 1979 Oldsmobile 5.7l v-8 diesel engine.

1964 Olds dynamic 88 , 6.2 diesel . ride along.
spliced together some of the vid's I've been taking this past few days when
out driving the Matrod.
The car for you who don't know , is a 1964 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 four door.
That I installed a 6.2 GM diesel out of a Hummer.
I converted the front to disc brakes , cut the floor to fit the TH00 . And
made my own true dual Exhaust.
Straight piped , from 2 1/2 at the engine . Then 3 1/2 out th back.
The car isn't pretty , but it has class all it's own. I call it the "
matrod" because it's my version of a rat rod. And being my name is matt ,
matrod kind of fit.
So there you have it , hope you all enjoy this .
Thanks for watching

350 Olds Diesel, No Start (Fail)
The Cadillac isn't getting fuel for some reason. We thought the glow plugs
were burned out, but if that was the case this would have allowed the
engine to start. I later observed that while cranking we were not getting
any unburnt fuel out the tail pipe. Hm...
