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
1991 S10 2.5L 5 speed iron duke starting problems
It will start but dies quickly. Dies quicker if I step on the accelerator
pedal. When I turn the key to "on", I can hear the fuel pump run in the gas
tank for a second or two then stop. Turn the key to start and engine starts
but dies in a second or two. Once dead, I can hear the fuel pump run for
another couple seconds then shut off. Fuel pump in tank new, fuel filter by
rear of engine new. Cap,rotor,plug wires, spark plugs new. EGR valve new.
Air filter, oil filter and motor oil new.

GM 2.5L Iron Duke Valve Adjustment
If you have valve noise due to a failed lifter you can get a cool tool to
pull them out from Amazon here
pwwwyou00f-20&linkId=RSU3R25ATEKLBBJE With this tool you can pull them up
and out without having to pull your ignition coil, distributor etc. Great
way to inspect or test them without major tear down!

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.................
Olds 350 motor running out of car
This is the motor that I put into my 1985 Delta 88, replacing the blown
307. It's from a 1968 Olds Delmont. It is a 350 Rocket motor, 395558 block,
5 heads, and has a TH 400 tranny bolted up to it.
How you start it out of the car you All you gotta do is run a fuel line to
the carb and the other end to a fuel can with about a gallon of gas. Run a
battery to the disturbitor, and touch the wires together for the dis and
the starter and if it runs, it will fire right up
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!! :)
