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.

'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.
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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
