Some of you might find humor in this if you're into diesel trucks as well

I really don't care for trucks set up just to make vision blocking smoke, but a diesel tractor on the coal is beautiful!

And nothing sounds better than a diesel tractor under a load.  Music to my ears every time.

Black coal trucks must be thing of past. These modern diesels hardly smoke anymore and much quieter!  Took all the fun away! The real "clankaty" and black ones are the old Detroit Diesels with those big blowers on them, no matter what size they were.

I'd dearly love to have the Bolens HDT rolling some smoke when I have it under a load since it has the stack.

 

What would be really nice would be a way to toggle it off and on so that you could let it smoke for 'show' and smokeless the rest of the time

 

With my other diesel, it has the muffler along the side of the hood, and that just wouldn't look right for it to be blowing smoke  :D :D :D

I wish the guys with diesel pickups around here knew that... I think they must chip 'em and turn the fuel up as much as possible. Theres a bunch that have stacks and they blow smoke like a steam train.

 

Then once a year they dutifully pull the chip and drop the stacks to go get the thing inspected. It seems like so much extra work...

And wears the engine out quick. Yep, a lot of work.

Love the diesel tractor sound.

Kockers, rattlers, compression ignited engines turn heads in more then one way.
