Smoke Responsibly And Roll Coal The Right Way With These Truck Modification Options
dailycaller.com ^ | 7/10/2014 | Emma Colton

Posted on 07/11/2014 7:58:51 AM PDT by rktman

Conservative truck owners have a new way to rebel against environmentalists and the government’s obsession with carbon footprints: tricking-out diesel pickups with coal stacks that spew black smoke. Called “coal rollers,” these smoky renegades use their sweet chimney stacks to smoke-out hybrids by emitting black exhaust into the atmosphere.

Here at The Daily Caller, we are going to give you the basics on how to modify your pickup, so every hybrid driven by some guy in a pink Argyle sweater will know exactly where you stand.

One woman said that she floored her diesel truck to smoke out a couple bicycles. They took her license number and she was told to report for an emissions test.

I could see smoking out protesters, but just some bicyclists minding their own business, what a d*ck.

This is just plain goofy. All it will do is increase pollution. That will result in even stricter regulations perhaps resulting in banning diesel engines altogether.

I have no problem with coal rollers. It’s their dime. That being said, one of these morons is going to get someone killed or severely injured because the rollee can’t see the road ahead, or someone else can’t see the rollee. Then the laughing stops.

You should see stupid bicyclists riding two wide on a mountain road under repair. The really enjoy blocking traffic and call it their right.

I used to work on commercial fishing boats and full throttle was called "smoke holing it". No engine mods were needed on a WWII era 6-71 Detroit diesel to make her smoke, just punch it.
That being said, the guy in the truck video is an ass.

I know. It was an attempt at subtle humor as a response to and to tweek the ecowackos. Maybe it just goes wrong.

Banning stuff is always on the Marxist mind, one thing at a time. Eventually that idea will be floated on a large scale.

“Conservative truck owners have a new way to rebel against environmentalists”

The author is confusing the word “conservative” with the word “redneck” or perhaps “jerk” or even “asshole”.

Yes, some rednecks are conservatives and some conservative are rednecks, but REAL conservatives believe in conserving things, you know, like natural resources and a livable environment and so wouldn’t deliberately pollute the environment, waste energy resources, and potentially induce accidents by supposedly demonstrating some pointless point about the type of vehicle a fellow human being chooses to drive.

Clearly the author has exposed their personal viewpoint as to the nature of conservatives as well as promulgating the usual bias of the usual “Progressive” media “journalists”

Ever had a 671 run away?

Gray Marine, of course.

Scary.

Lucky for me the safety shut down devices (which I *think* are something like spring loaded plates which are rigged to close when the incoming air velocity exceeds certain amounts) did work.

It was screaming there for a while...I thought it was going to blow up.

Years later I was offered a pair of those type of engines, complete with crash boxes but declined the offer.

Now if they had been 471's (which can be good for 30-35ft boats) or 271's which can be good light-plant engines...or 353's which are used in a lot of seine skiffs, or almost anything other than those 671's which at one time were very common on the West coast, then it would have been worth it to take possession.

Years ago when I was long hauling for a living, I used to see this one rig in Texas on dark nights that had at least two feet of flame coming out of both stacks. It was neat because you could tell it was him when he was still two miles away. I unrolled my window to listen to him go by and it sure sounded like a 6-71. I have no idea where he hauled out of or where to but I would generally see him between Midland and Abilene.

FYI, that wasn’t me driving, I just think it’s hilarious.

As to your question, I don’t care about winning people over, because most liberals won’t be won over until life beats them over the head. They are too far gone to be reached with reason, they will only learn the hard way. So, instead of wasting my time with that, I usually go with something they do still understand: ridicule.

It is all unburnt fuel. Total waste and doesn’t do anything for performance at low end.once the turbo finally winds up then you get some efficient power but not until you sustain high RPMs for quite a while. Until then all you are doing is melting pistons and turbos. I run near 500 hp with almost no smoke. I’ve seen trucks hit 140 in the quarter that hardly smoke more than mine. ‘06 Cummins 5.9= bad ass engine

If I had been a bit smarter at the time, I should have opened the engine hatch and immediately covered the air intake.

“If I had been a bit smarter at the time, I should have opened the engine hatch and immediately covered the air intake.”

A guy in high skrool threw a Houston yellow pages phone book on a Detroit that was running away. He said it proceeded to shred it and blow it out the stack.

Wow.

One trawler I worked as crewman on for many years, had an injection pump problem.

It was a 4 stroke Caterpillar 343. The old straight six cylinder engines with the overhead cams...later superseded by 3408's for the most part.

That engine smoked for years. Even after cylinder head replacement, injector replacement, etc. Rebuilding those particular injection pumps takes special high pressure bench test equipment, which for a long while wasn't anywhere to be found local. So --- the owner just kept running it.

There a little while before the pump was finally removed and rebuilt, it was smoking bad enough that when we came into the harbor someone called the Coast Guard on the radio to report a boat on fire in the channel.

The Coast Guard (after looking out of their windows, I take it) replied, nah, that's just the Skagerrak. (the name of the boat).

We had a good laugh over that.

If someone gets pissed off at me finding something funny, I really couldn’t care less if they are liberal or republican. Nor do I care if they find my sense of humor immature.

There are laws we must disobey due to divine dictate.

I doubt there is any Church of Rolling Coal, however.

Good. She deserved it.

Not for installing the smoke kit (that's kinda cool), but for abusing it.

The old question returns: WHY do it. As some kind of silly consensual sport, that’s one thing. To be obnoxious for obnoxiousness’ sake, that’s another.
