I cut this T model Ford engine in half in 1957 using 11 hacksaw blades. The only part not cut with the hacksaw was the camshaft as it was too hard and had to ground through.

How to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T
While still in the Ely neighborhood of Fairlee, Vermont, we get a quick lesson on how to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T. I am not sure how comprehensive a lesson it is, but I think with a bit of practice, I could drive this car. Once the car is started, we take a drive down Old Federal Route 5, which has been truncated, since the new Route 5 was built in the 1930's. The road is also unpaved, which I am sure is the way its been for years. Imagine being on this road 80 years ago and seeing this car coming along down the road; this would have been a pretty common sight. At the end of the road, we turn around in a neighbors driveway, where we see a couple of newer, yet vintage, cars. I am not sure what the white car is, but the Chevrolet pick-up looks like it's from the 1960's. Enjoy the view from the car, as well as the lesson on starting and driving it. If you have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are welcome. The video was taken on August 25th, 2013.

Lada hand crank start
I made an attempt of starting my Lada with a hand crank, and it went smoother than I'd thought. It was unstarted for a week. The preparations I did before starting, was removing the license plate to access the hole in the bumper, turning on the ignition and pulling the choke out fully. Of course I also checked that it was not in gear =)

Hand crank start
Filmed at Norgesløpet 2008 in Hamar, Norway. It sure is an American car from the 1930's but I don't know which brand it is. The cars all looked the same back than, too. It is an impressive task to start it by muscle power, though.





My 1925 Ford Model T - How to Start & How to Drive
Enthusiasts Website: http://www.fordmodelt.net/ Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modeltford/ Update 10 Aug 2012: My Model T has been fully restored, and I've just purchased a pair of carriage lights which the car was missing. Updated video to come. Update: "I MADE A MISTAKE!" 55psi only applies to clincher tyres on earlier Model T's. Since mine is a 1925 model and has split rims and balloon tyres, the correct tyre pressure is 35psi. ---------------------------------------------------- I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit, Michigan where it was built. In this video I demonstrate the T's unusual controls and how they all work, I show you how to start a Model T, and I take you on a short drive at the end. The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'. The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting. On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
