    Thank you to everybody for making this video a success. This was the best possible way we could have sent this obsolete truck to its grave. It was headed to the scrap heap, which is where 99% of obsolete iron ends up, and this was much better than sending it quietly without it being seen by anybody before it went. Some people don't understand this, but most do. I appreciate all the comments and discussion, and thanks for watching.

      Fill a cat c-15 with quicksilver tcw3 2 stroke oil and inject some of into the intake. Use 2 VRO pumps, total loss oil burn off at its finest.

      @KT3406E You got ratio'd. This is what people call "cancel culture", but really it's just simple human nature. Intentionally blowing up classic Detroit Diesels is not PC.

      We get feels about ruining classic engines that aren't made anymore. Nothing wrong with that.

        Hey @kt3406e iv watched every 1 of your videos I had some respect for you. And in 1 of your videos you said that you and warren from western truck and tractor repair channel think a lot alike if he saw this video he'd probably kick you in the balls. Watching you destroy a good running engine makes me sick

                        I keep seeing comments from this same balltickler saying shit like "This truck deserved it" "This engine was way past its prime" "It was a useless obsolete pile of scrap". Now, of course I disagree with this for a myriad of reasons, the main one being the fact that the damn thing started right up and purred smoother than warm butter on a hot skillet. But then again, what would I know about engines? Mr. Hot Shot seems to be a self-proclaimed very experienced dragster, so OBVIOUSLY he knows what he's talking about and has NO BIAS WHATSOEVER towards older, "inefficient" engines...

                              They sound cool but require ear protection, use near a third more fuel than 4 strokes and are about a third bigger in size for rated power not quite the same as the gas two strokes, it's cool some people repower with them but me nah like the simplicity and sound of inline diesel's, in my opinion was a fine end to a scrap doomed old work horse.

                                  What a shame. It had plenty of life left. Had to make it die because it was still a good motor. Oh well each to their own. What ever floats your boat.

                                        Very impressive how long it actually took to quit. For an old engine, it sure took a lot.

                                                Had a couple of Detroit 2 strokes run away while pulling railroad containers back in the 80s .The problem was they didn't run far enough. Please hunt down and kill the rest of them.

I work on trucks for a living and trust me, General Motors trucks such as the Kodiak and top kick are flat out trash before they ever hit the road. And the 2cycle is obsolete for many reasons: gutless low end with no torque, horrible fuel efficiency, somewhat dangerous and unreliable, and heavy emissions
