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. Enjoy!

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....

47772's first start in quite a few years `
47772 started for the first time in some time. this engine has EP start contactors which is why it stop motoring over after a couple of turns as the air had got too low. it was a bit sluggish to start with but it soon clears and settles down nicely with oil pressure of 60 PSI. still plenty more work to be done on this one before it graces the main line again. But it should not be too long away





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 car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009. To see how things turned out, see the related video, 1909 Cadillac first drive at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy0KagVrIw





China vs EU diesel generator.
Sound comparison between a cheap China produced "silent" diesel generator and a more expensive EU produced SDMO Alize. This comparison is not quite fair as the single cylinder air cooled China diesel is running at 3000 rpm as opposed to 1500 rpm on the water cooled 3 cylinder SDMO... The price tag on the SDMO is also about 5-6 times bigger... The camera seems to pick up different sounds than my ear so in real life, the SDMO seems even better than in this video.





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 pictures.





D8H 36A First start in ten years
This Caterpillar hasn't been started for ten years because of a broken pony engine. We made replaced pony motor with a hydraulic motor to get it started. Starting the main engine required almost ten minutes of cranking and some ether.





De Tomaso Pantera , first start after 26 years,part 1
We purchased our 1974 Detomaso Pantera in February 2013 out of Geneva New York. Spent the time since then going over things and replacing items. The car had been mothballed in 1986 and not even started since then. That's a period of a little over 26 years. Kudos to the previous owner as I was constantly amazed at the good state of repair things were in. Nevertheless all items had to be checked. Marvel mystery oil the cylinders., Turned it over by hand, all Felt good. Proceeded to turn it over with the starter with the electric disconnected. Noted that we had good oil pressure. Purged and refilled the Cooling system. All fluids in the engine and transaxle were drained and replaced with fresh. New belts and hoses were necessary. All braided stainless fuel lines were removed and inspected however I was not able to determine that there were leaks in them. This became apparent that the first attempt at start up as you will see in the video. Replaced all brake hoses with braided stainless and upon attempting to bleed them found that the calipers were now seized. Just received the rebuild kits today and I'm in the process of rebuilding all the calipers. I am so looking forward to getting this car on the road. After we replaced all the fuel hoses it ran like a top which absolutely amazed me. Right out of the box the Weber 48 I DAs had a perfect idlel at a little over 800 RPM after 26 years. I didn't touch them. I'll keep you posted on the progress. Check out part two and part three of the same video title
