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....

Never ran in 30 years , fired up realy easy with just a carb cleaning , and
some fresh rad. hose . Misses a little , needs new spark plugs and wires .
Doesn't smoke or tap , car is in rough shape , good donor engine for my

1950 Pontiac Silver Streak 8 Sedan - Flathead Straight Eight Powered Classic Car
I thought you might like a look at this very original 1950 Pontiac Silver
Streak 8 Sedan. It's sure looking sharp with all that chrome over top of
that mean looking black paint. I believe it's still powered by the original
flathead 268 cubic inch Straight eight engine as well. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for checking it out!

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!
Pontiac Straight 8 Engine
Pontiac used this engine from 1933 to 1954. This is my 1953 Pontiac engine
running after I changed the oil.
