I made an attempt of starting my Lada with a hand crank, and it went smoother than I'd thought. It was unstarted for a week. The preparations I did before starting, was removing the license plate to access the hole in the bumper, turning on the ignition and pulling the choke out fully. Of course I also checked that it was not in gear =)
Hand crank starting a Renault 4CV
That's right... we're not cranky...., we do laugh a lot ......and like to
" hand crank" start an engine. Who needs a starter? We don't need no
electric starter !! This year's 2012 GPNW microcar show was blessed with a
bunch of "crank-pots" .....one being, Terry Cassem and his delightful 1960
Renault 4CV. Part of the Friday night meet and greet parking lot antics is
playing with, and talking cars. Specifically microcars. Here we see a
combined effort on the correct way to hand crank start a Renault 4cv.

Vauxhall 10 - First start in 41 years
I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see -
have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time
to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it
will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old
site') and also the listing on eBay at
9pm on Wed 24th July 2013).
Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a
nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-)
I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's
already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar
video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to
my two boys will have to wait a while... :-)
My new project - I bought this in September 2008 as a barn find - it had
been stored in a barn for over 40 years. This is the first time anyone has
attempted to run it, note the 6V electrical system being Boosted by a 12V jump pack - OK for short
periods if the 6V battery is good.
The fuel system is still unproven at this point, so running was achieved by
pouring a small amount of fuel directly down the carburettor - there's no
reason why it shouldn't fire up straight away in normal use, but here it
presumably starts out flooded. Oh the joys of carburettored engines!

The expansion chambers are "home made" by hydroforming. The original Exhaust is milled away and the engine
block is filled whit plastic.
This engine will get electronic fuel injection and will not be used in a
