Pontiac 151 "Iron Duke" first start in 10 years, no car.
This is the motor out of a 1979 Chevy monza i used to have a number of years back, i was relocating the motor from storage and decided to see if it still ran. Hooked up a battery, some ignition power, and primed the fuel pump and carb with a splash of fuel and the thing started up and ran just as good as it did then. Sorry about the camera being so far away. Enjoy! the video!
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
Los Hungaros Inc. bemutatja:First Start `50 BUICK FIREBALL 320ci straight 8 engine (SOLD)
SOLD!!! `50 BUICK FIREBALL 320ci straight 8 engine for sale!
I got this engine not long time ago from a friend of mine with a stock,
good running`50 Buick who was swapping in a small block Chevy. The only
reason it was pulled out from the car, because the broke down Dynaflow.
And his easiest way was to get a 350 combo.
I was going to use it in my future project, a`20`s race car replica, but
decided on a different engine.
It`s ran always GREAT before it was pulled out.No smokes, nor knocks at
all. The engine was checked under the valve cover and found absolutely
clean inside.The valve gasket has been replaced.This is the greatest
version of the FABULOUS FIREBALL EIGHT.
Attention people,This is The REAL BIG ONE , NOT a "tiny"263ci!
It is a real 320ci!!

You are going to able to hear it run soon as I `m going to fire it up and
film, then post it on YouTube, and it will be attached to this EBay

1982 Pontiac Firebird - 2.5 L4 Iron Duke
Video taken June 16th 2007
2 years ago, my friend and I discovered a 1982 Pontiac Firebird (Right Hand
Drive) advertised on carsales.com.au.
Being that the current law for probationary drivers is NO V8's, I realised
that I was unable to buy a Trans Am for my first car. The only alternatives
I saw at the time were to find a V6 or a L4 Firebird which I was convinced
there were none of in the country.
Once I came accross this one I was determined to test drive it and see
whether or not it was a good decision for me to buy. (I ended up buying an
87 Pontiac Fiero GT which worked out better than if I had bought the 82
Firebird as restoration costs would have been too expensive and I wasn't
really fond of the Duke's Performance).
Since this was the only L4 Firebird we knew of, we test drove it anyway and
learned how a 25 year old economy engine performs in a vehicle as heavy as
the 3rd gen Firebird.................
First Start 1970's Mopar Engine - On test stand
We first try to start the engine on starting fluid, then try to run it off
of gas. Test start the engine to see how well it runs. Hopefully it will
make a good derby car motor.

1986 Chevy S-10 2.5 Iron Duke
short video of my old S10 in its current state as of December 2012. The
truck is slowly getting rebuilt, I have almost got everything replaced on
the engine but it still knocks a little when idling. I still need to
replace the main bearings and the crank, that's why it sounds like a diesel
lol but it starts every time and I've drove it 3 years like this!! :)
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
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!
