Cold start 351-4V Cleveland 1969 Mustang
Here's a cold start of my '69 Mustang fastback with a 351-4V
Cleveland. It was 27 degrees Fahrenheit and about two weeks since I last
had it running.
The choke's been a bit stubborn since I had the carb rebuilt and I have to
keep my foot on the gas for a couple minutes or it stalls out. (I edited
out some boring warming-up footage.)
Quite a bit of smoke as it warms up, which eventually dissipates (see after
last edit) and a little poppy when revving. May just ditch that Holley come

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.
Snowy cold start 2011
So the storm is over and we got dumped on pretty good. I figured this
would be a good time to do a cold start video of the 75 Beetle.
-23*C Cold Start 7.3 Powerstroke
-23*C (-8*F'ish) cold start with my 00' 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel.
Cycled the key/plugs twice before the first start attempt, cycled once
before second try. Fired right up with half throttle. First time I've
started it this cold without being plugged in to reduce warm up times.
Still running 15-40 Rotella dino oil, hence slow cranking and start up.
Camera is a Canon Rebel T1i
First start of the new to me diesel roadmaster
Cold start of the roadie after a year of sitting, kinds and all. Think this
captures the first $200 of the project as I needed new batteries to get her
to her first start. Took more than batteries to get it starting like the
most recent one. Moved the batteries out of the trunk and back up front.
Need all the weight I can up there now that the springs out of a 442 are in

This thing drove by, the driver paused for a few moments while making a
cell call (bravo). I was able to get a quick video before he continued on.
Starting old Caterpillar D8 dozer with pony motor
Camp Creek Thresher show, July 2009 Wavery, NE. A friend of ours starting
1945 (I think), Cat D8 for the antique parade at the show. Pony motor has
kill switch, so he puts his hand over the intake to choke it off.
