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!

1982 Pontiac Firebird - 2.5 L4 Iron Duke
Video taken June 16th 2007 Melbourne, Australia 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.................
