Several people have asked to see more videos driving the Olds Diesel. This is a cold start in the morning (it was about 40 last night, probably 50 in the garage), followed by a cruise around the neighborhood. Turn down your subwoofer - camera picked up some low rumbles that you don't hear while driving...
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.
1981 GM Oldsmobile 5.7 diesel started after 13 years
I picked up this '81 Oldsmobile Cutlass with the V8 5.7L diesel engine (
350 DX engine block), I was told it was upgraded with the Goodwrench
engine in 1985 and also a new injector pump . It was parked and forgotten
in a NJ barn in 2000 , not sure why , and it wasn't started since , but
upon installing 2 new batteries it started right up , no noises , knocks or
smoke , it runs beautiful !
Rebuilt, Reworked Oldsmobile Diesel
First full video of the car since I've redone it. New springs, shocks,
tires, headliner, door gaskets, window tint, trunk lift struts, a/c
compressor, evaporator, heater core, water pump, alternator, radiator,
belts, hoses, transmission cooler. Transmission (200C) has been rebuilt.
Engine has been rebuilt with NOS injectors, NOS .030 over pistons, new rod
bearings, cam bearings, main bearings, camshaft, lifters, Fel-Pro gaskets
throughout, ARP head studs, ARP main studs, injector pump rebuilt by
Stanadyne's service department, pretty much nothing left untouched.

Original advertising laserdisc info for the 1980 Oldsmobile Diesel engine,
audio is harsh, sorry, don't know if it was any better than this in the
showrooms though LOL
1982 Cadillac Coupe DeVille DIESEL
Have you ever seen one of these in person? Not many are left today. This
car has been gone through for reliability, if you can consider that
possible for an Olds 350 diesel. This car (since its an '82) has the
improved DX block, over the D block that was produced first. The D block
and its fuel system were pretty horrid. The DX is a far better engine, but
either can be worked with to become much more reliable. I personally
believe the DX ha more potential. Is it a powerhouse? No way, but gets
respectable fuel economy for such a big car, and hasn't given me any
trouble so far.
I just love the expressions from people I see on the road and at the truck
stops where I fuel up.
Look for more videos of this car in the future!

Diesel Buick Roadmaster Wagon Coldstart
Here it is coldstart of one known 6.2 diesel 1991 roadmaster wagon. -10c
not plugged in, sun was up for maybe half hour.
Can't lay claim to the swap but I can lay claim to it's resurrection. Here
is the write-up
The car was sitting for a year and I knew there were kinks to be ironed
out, which for the most part have been done, it was the wrinkle that hurt
teh ego and pocketbook the most.
Fresh batteries, cabling, starter, rotors, pads calipers, fresh 3' Exhaust, new to me caprice seats.
A new to me 700r4 after the estimated 250k mile trans pump failure before I
even got the thing plated.
Up next is a fresh set of injectors and glow plugs, getting 28mpg on the
highway now, hoping for 35-38 after the freshen up.
Driving the Dodge Ram Diesel
The Oldsmobile isn't my only diesel --- this is my 2001 Dodge Ram, 3/4-ton
4x4, Cummins 5.9L I6 diesel, 6-speed manual. As with this morning's
Oldsmobile video, this is a cold start in the garage, followed by a drive
around the neighborhood. Sorry for the glare on the windshield, I know you
can't see where we're going very well. Don't worry -- I could. :)
The diesel oldsmobiles
I got 'em. Both engines were seized. So I parted them out/junked them, took
the junk money and bought one like the red one but with a gas 307 and it
runs/drives, just needs brake lines.
