First Start video
#1
Back in November we replaced my Cleveland which developed a
cracked block largely due to a bad rebuild many years before I
bought the car. After five months I finally received the video of
the start up. This was before any fine tuning. A lot of the debris
you see spewing from the tailpipe had accumulated in the exhaust
from the cracked block. We dumped a teaspoon of gas down the carb
and turned the key.

This is five months later......

AWESOME!! Congrats!

Man, with all these new 'first start up' videos, I'm feelin' a little envious. It's OK though - I'll be there soon enough.

You're right, Eric, you'll get there. I admire the "stick-to-it" attitude that you bring here, and it really helped me get my butt in gear. Thanks for your positive attitude, and keep up the good work!

Thank You.
There is a story behind that engine.
It is not something you could order from Summit.
