Datsun 1000 (VB10) A10 engine start up in box trailer v2.wmv
I recently bought an old A10 engine with 4 speed box for $84 on ebay. It had been sitting out in the weather and has not run for a long long time. Curious whether a rebuild was immediately required (or not) I hooked up some fuel and started it up in the back of the box trailer it arrived in. Was quite surprised how well it ran :-)

Air North operating service 4N208 from Old Crow (YOC) to Dawson City (YDA) as part of a five leg roundtrip through Yukon and Northwest Territories. Old Crow is not accessible by road and must hence be one of the smallest towns with its own airport (population 245). The aircraft operating this flight was C-FCSE, built 1970. The flight took place on May 28th, 2012. The footage was recorded from seat 2D, video uploaded in HD quality.
1928 Chevrolet Coach Engine Start
First run in over 50 years. This engine hasn't run in a VERY long time but starts right up and idles perfectly. A testament to quality American engineering.
Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1
My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5 years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in it.

Datsun 1000 & worked 1200cc engine
Datsun 1000 with a worked A12. Initial start-up after the first round of adjustments. This isn't nearly full throttle, I'll follow up with another video of when it's running a little better. You should get an idea of how worked the engine is though.
Still need to get jets, chokes, rocker arms etc looked at as it doesn't respond to the throttle as well as it should [it's also running rich]. Sorry about the poor quality footage.
Old marine engine, first start since?
This is a old 2 stroke 2 cylinder marine engine from around 1920's, no manufacturers name or any ID on it. After fixing the magneto (Ruthardt) I got it running. In this first run we had motor oil in the crankcase, because we thougt it wouldn't use the 2-stroke oil and would need oil in the crackcase. That was not the case as you can see. The oil burns and flies from the Exhaust. It will still need a little adjusting of the carburetor (Schebler) to run beautifully.
Gnome rotary engine startup
Startup and short run of a genuine Gnome rotary engine at the South Australian Aircraft Museum. They have an engine run day twice a year and startup a few old aero engines including this Gnome, a Rolls Royce Merlin, a Pratt and Whitney radial, a few other radials, inline piston engines and a jet or two. This one is my personal favorite.
