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.
Jerry Hubbard: I operated an old crane with a 471 Detroit and that engine would fire up
anytime of the year and run all day. Neve had to do any major work on the
engine and I ran it for over 25 years.
Jerry Hubbard: That is a nice ride. I always loved driving with a Detroit under the hood.
Can't wear one out.
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.
Brian Dellinger: he does shift well though, I didn't hear any grinding.
Phoi Phoi: ssdfmk
Daren Sarkinen: Brian Dellinger, you know nothing about diesels than dumb ass. Diesel
moters liked to be high reved before you shift them UNLIKE POS or gas
moters. Get your information right.
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.
agilive: Hm im is the Europe ...my quest say ..really shifting the gearbox not
clutch tap??? Easy....European old Trucks only gearbox shifting full mode
half mode double clutch tap.....Yeaaaahh..
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
Donald Brown: I live for this crap
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.
Igor Emanuel: open
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.
Klay Kracka: Beautiful truck, sounds killer!
Chris eddy: Love the sound of an old 2-stroke detroit! Nice truck!
Marcuss Smith: That's a big ass steering wheel
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!
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
hartmann urban: ich bi so än unbequeme bock mal gfahre, dä ton aber isch es wert gsiii,
fabio heleno: ai batwedores de lavãnca tão matãndo a saudade ai em.
Claymann09: 18s the way to go, nothing beats grabbing gears in a379 Pete.
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!
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.
Drum bum: drift it
Tim Hughes: Hook up to 35k and wind up and shift like that and see how long that old DD
bat man: sick as, sounds mean.
Stupar Baia Mare: this is beautifull . magnific.
big-like from Romanian . atention noo gipy !!
dusty stackhouse: gotta love it, sounds great. Thnx
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 .
Mark Repola: Sound like the truck in Maximum Overdrive. Sweet
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.
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.
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,,,,
Nadejda Schmidt: poor engine
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
Katsumoto0456: I have a 318!.... A BMW 318i :(
