Vauxhall 10 - First start in 41 years
I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see -
have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time
to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it
will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old
site') and also the listing on eBay at
9pm on Wed 24th July 2013).
Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a
nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-)
I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's
already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar
video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to
my two boys will have to wait a while... :-)
My new project - I bought this in September 2008 as a barn find - it had
been stored in a barn for over 40 years. This is the first time anyone has
attempted to run it, note the 6V electrical system being Boosted by a 12V jump pack - OK for short
periods if the 6V battery is good.
The fuel system is still unproven at this point, so running was achieved by
pouring a small amount of fuel directly down the carburettor - there's no
reason why it shouldn't fire up straight away in normal use, but here it
presumably starts out flooded. Oh the joys of carburettored engines!

1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better
fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with
fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds
to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first
firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine
65 Chevy Impala SS open headers irritates my neighbor
Here's my original high school car, numbers matching (327 c.u.i.) bought in
1972. Decided to open the headers and cruise around my subdivision a
little, but end up ticking off my neighbor. I didn't even drive by his
house - he lives up the block the opposite direction. When he heads to the
back of my car to take a pic of my license plate, I realize this could turn
against me. Funny thing is, he doesn't actually recognize me until I get
out of the car - then we "share the love".
