1972 Lincoln Continental Cold Start and Drive
This is a 1972 Lincoln Continental featuring the 460 c.i. (7.5L) 4bbl. V-8,
C6 transmission, and 9.25" removable carrier rear end. Power output is
224hp @ 4,400 RPM and torque is 357Lb./Ft. @ 2,800 RPM through a single Exhaust w/ resonator. Values are SAE net.
This is the first year of the "regular fuel" engines, so the compression

the car in this video, perform a cold start, and a short drive to
demonstrate the unique speedometer. More videos about this car to come as
maintenance needs arise. Footage shot on 2/18/2012 using a Sony Handycam
model DCR-TRV27. There is a pause at 15:03, but keep watching. The video

A very few of these Chrysler cars made in Australia were imported into UK
in late 1960's. Shares a lot of parts with the US Dodge Dart. 273 cubic
inch V8 engine (about 4.4L). This was actually smallest of the Chrysler
small-block engines. This car was sold in Cardiff around 1970. Had been in
mint condition with 32K miles on clock until around 2 to 4 years ago when
left outside in British rain. Lots of surface rust but all panels are
sound. No welding needed.
Drained oil. New oil. Oil down bores. Oil on rockers. Checked engine
turned. Starter changed. Starter relay fixed. Spun engine with plugs out.
Found a few distributor problems which were fixed. Checked for sparks then
went for a first engine start after many years standing.
Rigged up temporary fuel supply to carb (funnel and hose seen in video) as
petrol from tank smelled like varnish so could damage engine if used. Very
cold winter evening.
Feb 2013: Second half of this video taken when engine running sweetly after
a lot more work and a small incident with burning petrol. Putting petrol
down the carb is OK most of the time but it CAN (and did) catch fire if
Lots more still photos of the ongoing work here:
72 Challenger First Start 383 Stroker
My dad is building himself a nice 72 Challenger. This is the first start
after putting the motor back in post build. I am still pretty bad at
editing so please forgive.
1903 Curved dash Oldsmobile Completed and Running
Well here it is finished and running as sweet as a nut. This was just
before a test drive which I was going to film but there is a lot to do when
driving it (steering, gears, mixture and spark setting) so I didn't manage
that. But as the client wanted it to run (which no-one had managed for
about 4 years) I was pleased with the result. It drove well too! For more

Here is one of my latest projects, A Johnson Rampage snowmobile. I started
working on it two years ago thanksgiving. and haven't touched it since. I

reading to be low.
