omg this is so fucking cool. I know nothing about cars or the language they're using, but it's so fun to watch

I really like the fact that you make sure everything is operating properly before you try to fire it up. Most people would've just hooked power to it and caused some major damage, fighting the urge is hard so I respect the good work ethic!

before starting any unknown engine you should do some full revolutions by hand if you don't want to murder the cylinders

Wait. Why aren't you fixing up that cool Dodge truck?

I believe the measurement you are looking for is Glugs. You are adding 3-4 glugs per cylinder.

eLMoney20 (4 days ago)
I remember when my aunt gave me her old 1984 K10 Chevy. Had 42k miles on it all original! My buddy had it started in no time the same day I got it! So cool! It hadn’t ran for almost 17 years! Had it completely restored!

Why put this Fix-Or-Repair-Daily truck back out on the road again, where it will just block traffic?
James J (6 days ago)
I 've owned several Fords over my lifetime and one thing about them is that they will start under the most challenging conditions especially when it's cold I can't say the same for the dodges or Plymouths that I've had
James J (6 days ago)
you can always jump it from the solinoid ...a quart of acetone and or denatured alcohol in the gas tank would help get it going

Had a great memory at 20:09. Me and my brother-in-law were moving an old Dodge motor home (mid 70’s model) with the 440. We drained the gas tank and added some 110 octane (at $10.00 a gallon). The motor sits inside the cab so we had the cover off while trying to start it. Then it backfired through the carburetor. Couldn’t hear much right afterward, almost lost some eyebrows, but it gives me a good chuckle now. The funniest thing was driving behind him on the way home. He could floor it, quickly let off the throttle and it would shoot this purple fireball out the rear driver side. We were on the phone with each other but we couldn’t hear one another because we left the motor cover off and it was LOUD. I was trying to tell him not to let off the gas abruptly but he couldn’t hear me. The he figured out how to make it backfire and he started doing it to a few cars that passed us. Oh gosh ... the look on their faces!!! That was about three years ago. Wish I could turn back some time and revisit that day. Funny and sobering the memories that return from seeing a simple backfire. 😥

John Murphy (7 days ago)
Damn, screw the Ford... I would have grabbed the 241 Hemi Dodge !!!

It's encouraging that the engine turns over. At least you know it isn't seized up.
Eli Renigar (7 days ago)
When you’re sparking that ground wire, just scrub the surface you’re making contact on and it’ll put more power to the starter.
William Cook (7 days ago)
Not covered in dirt, webs, muddobers, tires still inflated. Clean for 2 years of sitting let along 26 years... and with the windows broken out.... the interior is pretty nice... gotta ask... was it frozen in a flash ice storm? Might have been somewhere for 26 years but it wasn't just sitting out the whole time. Maybe in a barn at the least. Look at the gauge set.... not 26 years old.. It's just a old farm truck... sitting in the same spot for "30" years that has had people come out and wash it every so often ....
fightingfalconfan (7 days ago)
Missing one crucial thing...ignition timing. Fireball out the carb means the spark is way to advanced. Have to retard it a few degrees.

Ethanol was mixed everywhere back in 91, so you should have replaced all the gas first

71K miles on a 60s or 70s american car was equivalent to 180K on today's vehicles. Yeah, it was shot to hell.

71,000 miles was usually pretty near used up back then, you didn't get 100,000 miles out of a car without a major rebuild. sometimes you got lucky, but it wasn't like now where 300,00 isn't unusual
