Did this video help you?

Brian Dellinger: just asking, but isn't he reving that engine kind of high before shifting? Disel moters are not supposed to run near as fast as gasoline.

agilive: Hm im is the Europe quest say ..really shifting the gearbox not clutch tap??? Easy....European old Trucks only gearbox shifting full mode half mode double clutch tap.....Yeaaaahh..

Crixus Ganicus: Sounds more like a car then truck :/

KAWASAKI KX: can somebody explain the jake to me

Miguel Arzola: Such a beautiful machine. The sound alone makes me proud that I have a CDL.

TheLoader69: oké a question. i'm from belgium 'europe'.. i like the sound of this detroit trucks. Dont realy know a lot about them, because they are fairly unknown here.. But they are gasoline right? or are they diesels? (dont think so or?) must be nice to drive.. good sound :D

Craig Williams: It's a 2 cycle Detroit Diesel. They sound like they are revving through the roof. It is just music to a Detroit. A Cat or newer Detroit will sound a lot mellower. As a friend said, "if you are going to drive a 2 cycle Detroit, start the day by slamming your hand in the door". Drive aggressive and mad.

King Snowman: This company said I messed their motor up. I don't see it myself. But they told me because I was driving with the Jake on constantly he broke a seal allowing all the water to enter the oil. I never had trouble up or down shifting it. It was a Detroit 60 series too. I never saw that truck again. I was crapty. It used some oil on runs, but I kept it right. I don't understand what took the motor out myself. I loved that double bunk Freight shaker too. Damn this brings memories back.. lol

Gerald Page: That is a Gennie KW! used to work in a Detroit shop just as the Series 60 were being introduced. A properly adjusted and driven Detroit never leaves a bad note on the ears and the soul!

Donald Brown: I live for this crap

Igor Emanuel: open

Brian Dellinger: he does shift well though, I didn't hear any grinding.

Joseph Ladarski: It sounds better than any 12V-71. In the late 60's, early 70's Mobil Oil had Dodge COE tractors with the 8V-71's with the biggest injectors. And man, you could here them coming a mile away. Really impressive.

Owen McCaffrey: Brandon...the idea was to make you're shift at 1700. That puts you right in the Detroits happy zone. Maxis were designed to handle 1200. They pulled fine from there. What was really nice was when you had a 300 Mack with a 10sp. You could pull just about anything.

Chris eddy: Love the sound of an old 2-stroke detroit! Nice truck! 

ILikeWafflz: I've been checking out various videos of big rigs including fail videos, shifting videos, and just general driving videos and I've come across a few comments harping on cummins. From my experience and from reading around and hearing, I thought cummins was a good engine, from big rigs to pickups (I have a rig and three pickups at my house). Can anyone explain what it is that some people find about cummins engines that makes them inferior? I'm not "offended" or getting on these people's case, I'm just actually curious about what the problems might be.

Diesel_Ramcharger: I've got an 8v92 with ddec3 controls. think i could safely turn 2500 with it? my m1070 only goes 45…i need to speed her up a little bit.

John Barker: misconception to many people called them 318s . when the 318 was mostly used in busses and dump trucks and power generators . most Detroit powered class 8 trucks cad 6 V 71 s the 318 was a 6 V 53 . 

Marcuss Smith: That's a big ass steering wheel

Nadejda Schmidt: poor engine

Josh Harenza: That truck looks and sounds boss! 

Jason D: Damn this truck sounds sooo good. 8V71s are the original Detroit sound in my mind. I know the 671s came first, but the 8Vs are what I remember hearing as a kid. I now have a 453T in a '79 GMC pickup that's got twin sticks and jakes coming soon for it. Close as I'm gonna get to something like this.. I just don't have the parking for a big rig!

Klay Kracka: Beautiful truck, sounds killer!

Claymann09: 18s the way to go, nothing beats grabbing gears in a379 Pete. 

fabio heleno: ai batwedores de lavãnca tão matãndo a saudade ai em.

hartmann urban: ich bi so än unbequeme bock mal gfahre, dä ton aber isch es wert gsiii, 

Owen McCaffrey: The typical rpm band for a road ranger in those days was 1700-2100. Hit 2100 let the rpms drop to 1700 and shift to the next higher gear. Maxidines were 1200-2100 if my memory serves me.

fezants: Here in England I used to drive many a Fuller gearboxed truck, Good to see you're not using the clutch, so many folk don't know how change gear nowadays, they're all to used to Synchromesh or automatic trucks.

Hans Greuber: I used to drive an old Brigadier dump with a Detroit series 71 in it. The old 2-smoke couldn't get out of her own way, but it was a lot fun making her scream. Thanks for sharing. Sweet old KW.

Brock Landers: Beautiful cab. Your shifting is smooth, but do you always rev that high?

Drum bum: drift it

Tim Hughes: Hook up to 35k and wind up and shift like that and see how long that old DD stays together

Stupar Baia Mare: this is beautifull . magnific. big-like from Romanian . atention noo gipy !!

unkslappy: NICE!!!!!!

dusty stackhouse: gotta love it, sounds great. Thnx

Mark Repola: Sound like the truck in Maximum Overdrive. Sweet

bat man: sick as, sounds mean.

jim blevins: Nice work on the gear changing too bad my new hires cant even get close. Bought a W925 set back axle from the original owner with a fresh 318 with a jake, Will post some pics after we start the restoration, Its funny to see the look on some of our younger drivers when i tilt the hood, I think every gearhead got hooked as a kid by the sounds of a DD.

Darnell Gholston: Sweet. Thank you for showing the right way to shift. I learning to shift an 18 speed 100 ton Western Wrecker. This was soooo helpful. 

James Showacre: She's a beast 13speed sweet

Patrick Rogers: Some of the older Detroit 2 strokes had only an intercooler and some didn't even have those on them. The later models did have a turbocharging system on them especially the 92 Silver series of engines.

Tony Reeves: This is real truck!! 

rock dawg: still lov this ole girl sound the old detroits had a sound to them the truck is sick looking one of the nices kw iv'e seen out of the older trucks one of my friends had an old kw with a 440 cat motor straight stacks the ole girl could run

krazziee2000: gotta love the sound of an old D/D, I miss em,,,, 

1971mako19: Always easier to float shift,like he's doing.

Ryan Becker: I know where and old IH transtarr II cabover with a rebilt 318 and another with a cummins sitting because the farmer said they ride too rough he said I could have the Detroit for free momwouldnt like that in the driveway lol:)

nnaatz1: back when you had to drive a truck....
