the engine are kept slipping over each other by a thin film of oil."

Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly
cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild
video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
...Motor oils are derived from petroleum-based and
non-petroleum-synthesized chemical compounds. Motor oils today are mainly
blended by using base oils composed of hydrocarbons, polyalphaolefins
(PAO), and polyinternal olefins (PIO), thus organic compounds consisting
entirely of carbon and hydrogen. The base oils of some high-performance
motor oils however contain up to 20% by weight of esters...
Lubricating oil creates a separating film between surfaces of adjacent
moving parts to minimize direct contact between them, decreasing heat
caused by friction and reducing wear, thus protecting the engine...

GM 216 Straight Six Blowing Up & Catching on Fire
To all the angry viewers out there, please feel free to post your comments
below and thanks for watching! Blowing up the engine was really fun, and we
would't think twice about doing it again. For all the other viewers who
enjoyed the video, please post your awesome comments below and thanks for
The engine had not run for a number of years and was scrapyard bound so
after sanding down the points and giving it some fuel it ran wide open for
about 10-12 minutes before it threw some rods, the oil caught on fire and
ran out of fuel.

Vintage Hot Rod Straight 6 [S3 Ep.11-1]
Everybody knows that the engine is a central key component to ANY Hot Rod
project. But is a V8 the only way to go? NO WAY!! Stacey shows you why. He
takes a vintage straight six engine that has been sleeping in a crate for
almost 40 years and he puts on the right pieces. He shows you why the
straight six was a force to be reckoned with in the early days of hot
rodding. After that, Stacey jumps into the tips and tricks of how to paint
your own true Kandy paint job. If you are into vintage Hot Rods, Kandy
paint, and multi-carbs? You don't need to go on a diet... you just need to

the trunk, but they are still pretty solid. Everything else is fine. Fuel
Cell in the trunk, split Exhaust

the generators rebuilt as well. Yes this car is still rocking the 6 volt
system and it works suprisingly well.
1966 Chevy 250 Inline 6 Start Up
Here is the second video of my 1966 Chevrolet C-10 starting up. Since the
first video, I have had the head professionally machined and rebuilt, which
included new valves, valve guides and oil seals, hardened Exhaust seats, valve springs and retainers, and
new rocker arms. The head was also shaved to level and the manifolds were
evened out. I also replaced a bad accelerator pump in the Rochester B
carb. that made the engine nearly impossible to start when cold. Now it
runs like new and pulls better than ever.
