    Olds 350DX Diesel Engine

    I have an Olds 350 DX Diesel motor, complete in running condition and have considered using it but I have thought it through and may install a 425 crank and go for the 411CI small block gasoline conversion (I know it costs $$$). I have heard that you can bore these blocks out but how much is another question, has anyone persued a DX build?

    Check this out for a 440 Olds Stroker, I guess they couldn't shave 2 more C.I.'s

    I'm converting an 84 350DX to run on Biodiesel and putting into an 86 442, I'll post the buildup here as it progresses.

    Well I abandon my buildup due to having too many projects and not enough time but here is some good technical information with regards to Diesel Olds motors:
