Rap 24 hp semidiesel, first start attempt in 20 years.
This engine was built in 1930 or earlier. Have been stored outdoors for the last 20 years. After spending hours getting all parts movable this is the first start attempt. Seems to be low start pressure (6.5 bar) and low capacity in start air hose that is the biggest problem.
Rap 24 hp semidiesel, third start attempt, the successful one.
More than two years since the last start attempt. Too many other projects
have had priority.
We used a couple of hours to get things running smoothly again and pumped
out more than 10 litres of rainwater from the crankcase but when we tried
to start, it went far better than expected :-)
The engine started running backwards and at time 3:00, I reduce the rpm and
give it a couple of manual fuel injections to change direction to forward.
1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Work 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....

1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been
sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad
differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the
engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put
it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark
and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was
hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very
cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron
cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings,
and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy
the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then
parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The
restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years
ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved
the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the
engine and sort it out for driving later this year.
The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It
runs better with them closed.
And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the
