Default Vintage Diesel Stories online at Diesel World

They haven't put very many of the "Vintage Smoke" old diesel stories online (yet... they say they will) but here are those I know about in no particular order, plus some related vintage diesel stories that are there.

Hi Jim
I enjoyed the article about the 5.7 and 4.3 Oldsmobiles.
It brings back lots of bad memories of the 5.7, it was pretty difficult until they came up with the DX block, then nobody would buy them. I was the only diesel tech and an Olds, GMC, Buick, Pontiac and Cadillac dealership in 1980. The 4.3 engines were great, I loved the lost styrofoam casting process for the aluminum heads, they looked like styrofoam also!
We sold hundreds of the 4.3 liter engines and I had to work on very few of them.
Thanks for the memories!
Mike
