1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start
My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero
So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through
a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb
installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start
The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to
make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then
popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of
the pedal, off it went!
The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more
videos on it soon, so stay tuned.
If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add
it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.
First Start of My 1968 Pontiac Firebird With Its New Carburettor
This is the first start of my 1968 Pontiac Firebird with its new Edelbrock
Performer Series 750 CFM carburettor.
The car catches at the start of the video because there is fuel, spilt
while removing the old carburettor, pooled in the intake manifold.
After that some cranking is required to pump fuel through the filter
assembly and the new carburettor. Once the carburettor's primed, however,
the engine fires up pretty easily.
You'll notice that initially the Pontiac almost cuts out when revved. That
was because the accelerator pump, which dumps extra fuel in when you hit
the throttle, was incorrectly adjusted and supplying too much fuel.
The Firebird still needs tuning but, for the mean time, it sounds pretty
good. The secondaries seem to be working as well, which is interesting as
they didn't appear to on the previous carburettor. You can tell they're
opening up when you get a distinct change in intake note, audible at the
Additionally, I've noticed that the car sounds different with this
carburettor. The Exhaust note is
deeper, richer and softer. I'm impressed by how easily it started too,
given that it's been sat for a while and it was very cold - hence all the
condensation from the Exhausts.
Apologies for the slightly grainy engine bay shots. It was getting quite
dark and the camera was starting to struggle a little.

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.
