1954 Pontiac "Viola" - Straight Pipe Straight 8

The Pontiac's getting a new muffler ... so of course I had to run it at least once with an open pipe.

Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1. Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer & build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all & just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

Heating up Salt Cat's "big" engine
August 29, 2010. Again, it is nearly impossible to torque the head or set the valves while the engine is in the car -- we have a straight 8 Buick set in the body of a XJ6 Jaguar and the engine extends through the firewall into the drivers compartment). So we hooked the engine to the air compressor and heated the engine to 210' for 4 hours so we could re-torque the head and set the valves hot. We will be participating in World of Speed, in Bonneville in just under 2 weeks...Yee Haw!

Chrysler Straight 8 Flathead Marine startup-idle
Chrysler Marine Flathead straight 8, starting and idling in a beautiful triple cockpit mahogany runabout. This was shot about 20 years ago. Sounds great! I first posted this as an Imperial, but upon further review, I believe it is actually a Royal, 323 cid. Not sure, at any rate it was a long time ago that I took this video....

Cutaway Ford Model A motor running on one cylinder.
I met this guy at the 2010 Badger Steam & Gas Show who had a cutaway Ford Model A engine that would run on one cylinder. He would do short demos as it will overheat if run too long due to no coolant. Super cool!
