Don't be silly. That is for shoe horning into a heavy truck. Maybe mid-engine, ey?

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

Sweet screaming sound. Amazing how all that engine doesn't even hit 475hp. But will run restlessly like that all day long. Always a reminder of the tugboat and barge dockbuilding rig I worked on 25 years ago, that sound would actually put me to sleep sitting in the pilothouse when moving it to another site

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

i started a Youtube channel. I'm so modern... not! Ain't much, but I have 3 shorties of a couple trucks at our ATHS chapter show in May. It would all be one video if I knew how to combine them.

Junkman3, Diesel Dan Renovetz, built a '70 C3500 pickup decades ago with a 4-53 I believe. He has run that thing all over the country. Recently did a restore on the body.

I'd like to buy or build a Detroit powered truck myself. I think I'll stay in the medium duty range. Here is a beautiful Advance Design as well. It sits on an Isuzu or other Nippon medium straight rail chassis. He drives it to Macungie from, I believe, Ohio. That's what I want!

EDIT: I see NJ plates, so I guess it got sold. Pretty sure the firts time I saw it it came from a greater distance, which impressed me

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

I fixed it for you.

A 20V-149. I believe it is the biggest Detroit ever made.

Thanks for posting it.

Re: Jimmy/Detroit Diesel Videos

Winding out second gear, and splitting only 4th gear?, Is that normal operation of this transmission Bill?

No, he is skipping 1st and that would be normal if the Trans has a real low first like most 5-Speeds have, but other than that, he is all over the place. Just "Split Shifting" here and there whenever he felt like it. For the video, he should have went through all 8. Although another normal when empty or just a light load would be Low Range in 2nd to 5th and then shift to High.

Hard to dislike this, really cool old bus. According t o that guy in the comments, you really gotta walk a thin edge with the way you treat these engines.
