1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 cold start.
Firing up the '67 oldsmobile after sitting for a few weeks. The Temp was
about 10 degrees. It has a 425 V8. the car is an all original michigan
car. the only thing that's new are the ingition system (spark plugs, wires
etc) and tires. There is some rust on the negative battery terminal which
was the cause of the car not starting at first. I still have to fix it . .
. when it's warmer outside.

Polaris Indy Lite GT cold start and ride.
I was bored so I decided to fire up the old XLT and Indy Lite. Sadly I
didn't get a video of the XLT running.
Check back in the coming weeks to see more cold starts on my other
snowmobiles and vehicles.
Johnson Rampage Snowmobile
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
changed all the fuel lines, rebuilt the carb and fuel pump and tried to
start it. but I couldn't. I compression tested the motor and found the
reading to be low.
Massey Ferguson 35 Deisel Cold Start
Cold starting the MF 35. Hadn't been run since the night before. about 5
degrees C. Had to use the glow plugs, but she always starts. I would not
want to be the guy who has to start one of those on a cold winter morning
with a hand crank!
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
ratio is 8.5:1 (down from 10.5:1 from 1970). I go over some details about
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
Cold Start '69 Plymouth
Well, first start of the car in a while that I can call a cold start. About
ten in the morning and it was well below freezing. The car obviously needs
a new battery and should have a choke on it but it wasn't too bad. By the
way, those random clocks are called "jefferson golden hour clocks" and we
sell them on ebay, just sayin.
Classic snowmobile prep.
