Cold Start on VW Drag Engine without touching throttle.
Been working here and there on getting the cold startup settings dialed in on my drag engine. Takes a while when you get one shot each morning between changes.
Engine is a 2276cc, FK-89, 48x38 Comp Eliminator heads, 12.5:1 CR, running 91 pump gas with Megasquirt 3 for crankfired ignition and coil-on-plug ignition. Intake system is a home-brew built by me. It works well at keeping intake air temps ambient and has introduced a lot more low end torque than I had with the ITB's that were on there before.
Overnight low was 35 degrees, but the car/engine only cooled down to 43-44 degrees overnight. Was hoping for a sub freezing night, but will have to wait until next fall it looks like.

Cold starting 12 cm. True Diesel Model Engine by hand

the injection timing when the engine is running, I am now able to start the
engine from cold by hand.
The engine is build 2012. Bore-Stroke: 20-40. Compression ratio:21-1.

Old start/Cold Start Rudy's 1963 Mack B81 w/ 711 Mack Turbo Diesel. First start in 10+ years.
Rudy hauled home his most recent purchase today, a 1963 Mack B81. Two fresh
batteries got it to crank after some tinkering with the terminals. Had to
spray some PB in the turbo and pry it
free with a screwdriver. Started on ether. It's not drawing any fuel at the
moment, that's a project for another day. For now we found out his
contraption is a runner!

7.3 PowerStroke -19ºF Cold Start Attempt
-19 F cold start attempt without the block heater on a 1999 7.3. Arrived at
the hotel late, and could not get a cord from maintenance to plug it in.
After many minutes of trying, we got a cord and plugged it in while we were
at the dirt bike ice race throughout the day. Batteries or starter never
died, which was impressive.

Cold start 50+ Year old Lister Diesel
Cold start 50+ Year old Lister Diesel Engine. No glow plugs or easy start
This engine had sat in a shed for 10 years before we got it. It normally
starts faster but it ran out of
diesel so there was some air in the fuel system
I have been told it was made in 1959. It drives a fan at the back which can
be disengaged and you can attach an irrigation pump to front.
2005 F250 6.0 cold start
this is what my truck does in the morning. It has been cold, but taking it
to dealer Wednesday. Have seen 10 different solutions to the cold start
issue. From alternator and batteries to injector O-rings to just a simple
re-flash. I am having a block heater cord installed on Wednesday also.
The truck runs perfectly if you let it warm up to normal operating temp,
but if you try to drive off right after startup, it has very little power
and trouble changing gears until warmed up. I just drove it 180 miles to
greenville and back, pulling a 25 ft travel trailer @4000 lbs and it ran
perfectly all the way there and back! No problems at all after warm..
thoughts? I hope the dealer figures it out quick and at a reasonable

First Dyno trip,
normal amount of teething issues with a brand new motor. Mainly a
converter that kept the wheels from catching up with the motor. Once
that's figured out we'll post up some new numbers!
Unbelievable Airbus A380 vertical Take-off + Amazing Air Show ( HD ) Paris Air show 2013
Wanna see, what happens if you place two former military pilots of the
French Navy in the cockpit of an Airbus A380? A vertical take-off and some
acrobatic maneuvers are the result. Two pilots who previously worked for
the French Navy have been working as test pilots for Airbus since a few
years. This was the most amazing A380 performance I have ever seen. Very
impressive to see such a big bird gliding threw the skies as if it would be
a small Cessna. Of course the fuel tanks were empty because the Airbus just
made a short presentation flight for the audience in France. I hope I could
see such a performance again someday.
Thanks for watching, I hope you liked it and please don` t forget to rate.
