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 pictures.
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.
1991 S10 Chevy 2.5l rough idle part 2
Second video. In this one I put the air filter cover on and rev the engine a couple times. I've owned this truck since last spring. Shortly after buying it I had to put a new fuel pump in the gas tank. It quit working and wouldn't pump at all when the key was turned to the run position. I then put new plugs, wires, cap and rotor. I've also tested the O2, water temp, throttle position, manifold pressure and air temp sensors and all were good except throttle position which I replaced with new. The trucks trouble code system doesn't work. When I use a GM code reader and turn the key to run the engine light only flashes once then stays on permanent. One time I was able to get it to work by unhooking the battery and removing the computer and prom chip. Then reinstalling. The engine light would come and then I was able to get the codes to read a couple times then it went back to not flashing the codes. I'm thinking maybe the computer or chip, or both might be bad. I've checked all the vac hoses and while some are weathered, none seem to leak causing the uneven and high idle.

Crazy turbo S15 burnout!
I bought the truck for $100. . . put a turbo on it. . . welded the rear end (POSI!!). .and ended up hitting a tree. . so i decided to do a burnout until it puked, well this is only the first of the 4 burnouts with absolutely no water in the engine, and the damn thing still runs!!! Go iron duke 2.5!!! O yea, it was getting about 10-12 lbs of Boost stuffed down its throat the whole time 2! On an otherwise bone stock engine! Now you cant tell me thats not impressive? And it wus 3rd gear!!
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

Vauxhall 10 - First start in 41 years
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!
