Starting my recently restored and modified Fiat X1/9 engine for the first time since we dragged it out off a field in Ohio. We added a four port intake, Duoletta carbs, lightened the flywheel, remove emmission controls and the AC, 1500 block (retains 4 speed gearbox), as well we added a euro cam along with a racing distributor and gave it some other tweaks to increase HP. We're very pleased with the results!
Fiat X19 - First internal start
This is our first attempt to get the car started after rebuilding it. It had run (previous video) very well outside the car and this was the first time with it in the vehicle. Unfortunately the gas in the old tank had turned to turpentine but after some flushing it's running pretty decent now. Just some kinks to be worked out and it should be running like a champ. The new tires, and the new carbs really help it look great. :)
Thanks to Cathy for filming, Lou in his help restoring, and for my sister bravely sitting next to me while I start it. She looks scared because the brakes don't work yet and it wasn't tied down. :D
