1919 Buick First start since 1952

This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.

How to start a 1912 Cadillac
The 1912 Cadillac is the first automobile in the world to include a starter motor. This is the procedure in starting one and driving away.

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model, that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.





Rap 24 hp semidiesel, second start attempt.
This video illustrates what happends when these two stroke semidiesels run out due to too much oil in the crankcase. With my left hand, I block the injection pump, so from that time the engine run on lube oil only, no diesel at all. I have heard lots of stories about this from decades ago but this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it is captured on video. Luckily we had blocked most of the air intake prior to starting and ended at somewhat over 1000 rpm. Max operating rpm is 425-450. With full air supply, I would guess this engine would reach thousands of rpm and I could only guess what would have happened then... The electric glowplug short circuited so we had to rely on the propane burner which had slightly low temperature. In this startattempt, we used an acetylene burner and got the glowplug bright red. The crankcase was, unfortunately, filled with too much oil so the engine was running on its lube oil from the crankcase instead of diesel. Still some trouble with the fuel injection, doesn't feel right when injecting diesel manually.





Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911. (Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw ) Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @ 69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903. This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920! Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011. Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz and other historic speed record contenders: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/tags/blitzenbenz/interesting/ Specs: displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³ bore 185 mm / 7.28 in stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in compression 5.8:1 power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm specific output 9.3 bhp per litre bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.





Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before shooting the vid!

HTZ T-150KM with Scania DS14 V8-diesel starting -4 degrees.
I installed Scania engine in Harkov T-150K last winter because the old engine was leaking coolant to engine oil. There's self made adaptor plate between engine and transmission case. Scania DS14 engine was bought from junk yard. I made it only minor repairs to the engine like replaced one broken cylinder liner with new one and installed new nozzles.





Start Deutz Traktor - old engine start
Von diesen wunderschönen Treffen habe ich auch eine DVD erstellt. Auf dem Bulldog Dampf und Diesel Treffen 2009 in Markkleeberg bei Leipzig, konnte ich den Start eines Deutz Traktors miterleben und filmen. Mit viel Qualm erwachte der Traktor zum Leben. Viel Spaß! Bidone





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 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 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!
