First Start Up!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I thought I would post the short video I took during my car's first start up. I tried to hold the rpms between 2k-2.5k for the first little bit like all the engine break-in procedures say, so that's why I didn't rev her up in the video. I will be posting more as I move along!

Woo hoo! Congratulations!

Sounds good and strong.

Make sure you keep zddp in the oil to keep the cam from going flat.

Well Done, Their nothing like hearing them fire up and run for the first time, unlike the felling when the buggers wont......

Anything is possible, It just takes time and MONEY....

I hope to be cranking my 351C this week, for the first time. I'm quite anxious, thanks for the inspiration.


Don't forget to shoot a short video and post it up here. I still remember the first fire up of my rebuilt Cleveland and how it felt!
