Diesel Engine Pros and Cons
We recently noted that although many of us like to think we’re without error at all times, nothing in our world is 100 percent fail proof. There’s a small margin for error in everything. The important thing is we should never allow that window to open too wide. The concept certainly applies to diesel truck

10 Best Marine Diesels
Diesels in the deep blue sea! Or, at the lake, or even down the river. Although oil burners in land-based trucks are our primary beat, there are occasions where we discuss the engines’ performance and capability for maritime vessels, too. With sizes ranging from three-cylinders small (Yanmar’s 3JH40), to absolutely mammoth—by way of the 14-cylinder,

10 Best Readers’ Diesels
“How can I get my truck in the magazine?” We’re confident that through the years, it is the question that editors are asked most frequently, by proud car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or other vehicle owners, who dream of seeing their ride in the pages of their favorite rag.

Air Bleeding Made Easy
Sometimes it’s the little things that make your life better. Although it is widely known that under-hood temperatures in diesel trucks can fatigue sensitive components like wiring, connectors, hoses, and more, it’s important to note that time also plays a big role in the degradation of these parts. The longer trucks are in service, the

What Is a 5-Blade Turbo?
Hard-core diesel enthusiasts already know that “5-blade” is the current hot term in turbo talk that’s posted on web forums and social media networks. For the uninitiated, yes, turbochargers, not cutlery. That’s right, the term is associated with one of the most important pieces of an oil-burner’s overall makeup. Breaking things down a little further,

5 Ways to Ensure a Common-Rail Fuel System’s Longevity
“Common rail.” It is a term that at this point is universally known across the entire diesel space. However, for uninitiated or new enthusiasts, the term refers to the manner in which late-model/newer diesels are fueled; via an injection system that is founded on a high-pressure pump that supplies fuel to independent rails (single rail

We’re not sure exactly when the term “granddaddy” was first used as a way of endearingly referring to events with long histories. For example, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, is considered the granddaddy of all college football bowl games, the same way the Daytona 500 reigns as the patriarch of NASCAR stock-car racing.
