Starting my '87 Chevy after 3 Years.
Hearing that old Detroit roar to life was like talking to a long-lost friend. Now I need to find an El Camino to stuff this boat anchor into!
Thanks to 1997cr80r for the suggestion
EPIC Best near fail cold start Detroit Diesel smoke show MCI MC9 bus
*READ This is the first video with my new Samsung F40 Camcorder. My
batteries are almost 4 years old, they are tired and my fuel is
exceptionally old as well. I haven't added diesel in over 2 years now. I
finally had to put some jumper cables on it. I think an 8V71 starts better.
It was 26 F during the night during the vid it had warmed up a lil to
around 50F. Keep in mind all the fluids/hidden metal are 30-40 F. I have
another cold start vid from last year. This year, I had to grab my car to
jump the bus off after the first attempt failed. I assume engine rotation
speed by the starter affects start up. Even with additives, the diesel is
just old. I put 67 gallons in I believe two years ago which filled it to
the top, there's about 179 gallons, 95% usable I believe.
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.

Cold Start 1983 Diesel Chevy 6.2
Love them or hate them, this 1983 Chevy ¾ ton 4x4 was given to me not
running. The drive train has about 10,000 miles on it and the electrics
just quit. The owner took the electrics all apart and let it sit for 2
years. After putting it back together I found with the help of my neighbor
a fusible link After replacing it the truck runs quite well. Please
subscribe and rate.
Will the V8 Land Rover start again?
Three years ago I did a cold start video of this Land Rover Series III and
now I thought I'd try again. Marvel as I fight cobwebs, moss growth and get
annoyed at some birds.
1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20
years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the
original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down
the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap,
Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the
Very Smokey OLD Cold Start
Well, she sat in a garden bed for years, then was skull dragged to another
garden bed for another period of extended time. How long has it been
sitting around ? you tell me.
And, if it's been sitting around for AGGES - Its like the unspoken law
almost.. MUST get the $hitbox running, breath some life into it again !
Apart from the madness of getting it running, todays mission : Pull the
good bits out for the rally car, scrap the rest.

Old start/Cold Start Rudy's 1963 Mack B81 w/ 711 Mack Turbo Diesel. First start in 10+ years.
Rudy hauled home his most recent purchase today, a 1963 Mack B81. Two fresh
batteries got it to crank after some tinkering with the terminals. Had to
spray some PB in the turbo and pry it
free with a screwdriver. Started on ether. It's not drawing any fuel at the
moment, that's a project for another day. For now we found out his
contraption is a runner!
