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 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.
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.................

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.
