First startup for 2012 - Lehigh Valley #211
ex-Lehigh Valley Railroad ALCO RS-3m #211 is started for the first time in
2012 at the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum. After pre-lubing
the EMD 567B prime mover and loading the cooling water amongst other
maintenance items, the cylinder pressure reliefs are spun out (actually one
was removed too as you will see and hear) and the engine turned over with
the fuel pump off. This allows condensation and any other contaminants in
the cylinders to be Exhausted to the
outside. Once that is complete, the reliefs are spun back in tight, the
fuel pump started, and the engine started as can be seen in this video shot
late on Tuesday evening, June 5, 2012.
1959 Allis-Chalmers D17 plowing
This is my brother plowing with my 1959 D17 Allis-Chalmers gas tractor. I
think the plow is a model 53. The ground had been left alone for about 10
years and was pretty rough. Took a while to get the plow shined up and the
depth set but it's working pretty well now. Lots of stones, broke the tips
of the front and rear points later.
Restoring our 1948 Allis Chalmers C_0001.wmv
This video covers a litte more than a year in time from when we got the C,
fixed the stuck engine, restored it with parts and help from a few tractor
club members and took it to it's first show almost a year to the day later.
We use this tractor regularly and our kids love to drive or ride on it.
This tractor was restored for our youngest daughter Hailey who is driving
it in it's first show.
Music by Kay Kyser, The Woody Woodpecker song. This was a Billboard #1 hit

1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Working on getting my dads new project car, a 69 Camaro started after sitting for
28 years untouched and uncovered in an Anchorage, Alaska back yard. It was
originally a big block/4speed car but was swapped to a 327 in the early
80's. The engine was covered in leafs, moss and debris and had no air
cleaner, headers or half the spark plugs when we got it. The car has been
parked since 1984, watch to see if we get it going! Don't pay any
attention to the Z28 badges someone added those long ago and it was
originally Daytona Yellow not white. More details coming soon....
