  • join in and follow along as they
  • continue their quest of saving rusty
  • relics giving the past the future while
  • serving God and building rods here at
  • tournaments rock you impart by maxed
  • trailers
  • [Music]
  • [Music]
  • [Applause]
  • [Music]
  • as we started loading up these old cars
  • onto the trailer it doesn't look like
  • there's a whole lot of Hope left into
  • them this front car here it still has a
  • motor and transmission in it supposedly
  • it was running some time back so we
  • thought it'd be kind of cool to dig into
  • it see if we can't maybe get it to run
  • and drive itself off the trailer just
  • you want to see if you can find a latch
  • or something in there I got it oh we got
  • a treasure here yeah this is one of
  • those it looks like there should be no
  • reason why it should run but maybe
  • something living in there
  • hopefully it'll hopefully it'll run
  • something will run out of it
  • we can get this hood off of it grab a
  • vacuum cleaner or something on a water
  • hose and start hammer dig it out if I'm
  • more worried about snake or spider got a
  • bomb there yeah
  • makes you wonder what was eating
  • something that big yeah and this will it
  • run episode might be refined oh yeah
  • it's kind of crazy but most time these
  • ones that look so bad will actually
  • crank up at home you ain't got nothing
  • to lose on it if it don't it's still
  • what it was probably but grab that shot
  • back and just kind of start sucking away
  • some of that stuff and see what's
  • underneath some of this top layer
  • there's two holes I like dens it looks
  • like one's a pretty good size another
  • it's not so big but either way if it
  • comes running out and ain't ready I'm
  • ready
  • [Music]
  • [Music]
  • packed in too tight we'll have to dig it
  • out start to see a motor the glory stuff
  • a turn and rust that most people don't
  • get to see baddies I love it I don't
  • thank you some of our houses
  • [Applause]
  • sort of
  • yeah
  • and all round that stalled it we will
  • it's hot now their starter it called
  • your house and take you around it
  • [Music]
  • want to hook a battery on it and see if
  • we can save this for the tunnel gonna
  • Haven turn over say the cables are up
  • front here so we can go grab a battery
  • in the hot battery to it and see if I
  • can jump across the cylinder head and
  • make sure it's not locked out yeah we
  • haven't got this engine compartment
  • fully cleaned out yet how we've really
  • just put a small dent into it but we can
  • see a little bit more of the motor now
  • the starter is visible so what we're
  • going to do is just run a wire to the
  • battery off the starter will jump the
  • starter solenoid across we just kind of
  • want to see if this motor is going to
  • turn over or not or maybe if it's locked
  • up if it's locked up we'll pull the plug
  • see if maybe it'll turn over a little
  • lazier with the plugs out of it but
  • right now we just want to kind of see
  • what we got on that point before we dig
  • into this thing any further
  • and sparks are we out of gear no it
  • should be when it loaded up it was I
  • don't know - do I always smoke yeah in
  • size just like the inking Department
  • I'm just going to try to jump it across
  • right here at the starter
  • something spinning but I don't yeah I
  • think that the belt maybe I think the
  • cranks turning but something's in
  • between the belt there so it is turning
  • over let's dig all this stuff out a
  • little bit more so there might be a big
  • oh something or another that's humming
  • in between a pulley or something big
  • spider or a possum so we are at least
  • turning over a little bit on this thing
  • the first trial I did the best and then
  • it kind of stopped so we're hoping maybe
  • something got in here and lodged in in
  • place somewhere
  • worst case scenario though we'll put a
  • wrench down here on the crank and just
  • work it back and forth but it's a good
  • sign that it did turn it a deletes just
  • a little bit yeah it's right right here
  • you check it no I didn't check it it had
  • one joke around and anyone fall in the
  • hole
  • good dark Texas ol Texas to go inside
  • yeah I see the crank turning it's just
  • the belts not maybe like the water could
  • be
  • pretty sure the water pumps froze up on
  • it you pull it out for this and I can't
  • Cuddy
  • try it again
  • it is a char bag or do you want to pull
  • the plugs alright so I think got as near
  • as much compression like a fight okay
  • ratchet sir
  • is it working
  • yeah figure out it's an hour
  • do I have to anyways yeah
  • and hurry up we're gonna take to the
  • drag strip
  • let's put something down in them
  • cylinders or Lube it up a little bit
  • well they finally broke free and it's
  • turning over pretty good after we pulled
  • the plugs out of it
  • now we're going to put a little ol
  • little lubricant down in these cylinders
  • just so it's not running dry until it
  • can pump the wool around in that motor
  • but it's good now that it's not froze up
  • we'll obviously have to figure out the
  • firing order on this thing the rats or
  • something to bait up all these wires on
  • it make sure that the points are getting
  • a little spark figure out this
  • carburetor hopefully there's not too
  • many acorns and trashing it and maybe we
  • can get this thing to bust off
  • hey some more wd-40 oh yeah
  • try to see if we can get some fire two
  • points
  • get some pliers and we'll run this wire
  • to the negative and the other one just
  • run a jumper wire to the battery on the
  • other one
  • the points are pretty corroded up here
  • so I'll have to take some sandpaper or
  • something and clean them up right there
  • in that area where they touch to make
  • them spark and ignite
  • they say didn't chew the radical and at
  • the point some of the important stuff
  • do we have any of those little clips
  • where I could just clip it rather than
  • it's just wire just things to be
  • just dropping that to the back here is
  • that one long enough but you've only
  • just better side clip it on here and
  • here it's a matter for a while already
  • got me and clip don't hurt someone cut
  • it shorter without that aid that for
  • that's an ugly client alligator clip so
  • I try to just turn them I bet I have to
  • clean the points a little more well try
  • it
  • we have to just get you better
  • screwdriver
  • and I just need something to hold it and
  • then I'll tie it back
  • get a little sport now I guess we need
  • to find some wires
  • figure out the fire and order and if you
  • want to pull that off I'll find some
  • buyers we can maybe use for now so we
  • need a cold wire and for spark plug
  • wires huh
  • yep I'll go ahead and clean these plugs
  • on the carburetor yeah stop yep I mean
  • the check that works but I can't get the
  • throttle
  • focus
  • [Music]
  • and some plug wires
  • unless say if it'll turn over with the
  • plug those bags we were so close we were
  • getting fire and everything yeah I mean
  • it was a matter of putting the plugs
  • back in and sparkplug wires we pouring
  • some gas in it but it won't turn over
  • with spark plugs out it definitely ain't
  • gonna turn over with him for the world
  • I just wanted was guys were grounded to
  • that the body instead the motor which
  • that's where that ground was but it's
  • about to get dark next 30 minutes
  • there's crazy it was turning over just
  • fine put the plugs in and try it why are
  • you yeah
  • let's put some all inside you're still
  • turning
  • yes doctor maybe it broke loose yeah put
  • some hole and I've got this all here
  • last night I don't know 14 it's that for
  • cycle anything's better than nothing but
  • I mean if it cranks up and runs we can
  • change the oil
  • I thought it was that all that you know
  • let me go put all of it in there oh you
  • would yeah
  • [Music]
  • nothing's working borders hot yeah after
  • a few hours of tinkering with this thing
  • yesterday we started running out of
  • daylight didn't seem like we were making
  • a whole lot of headway we got the motor
  • turning over a little bit but then it
  • would just seem like it went to lock
  • back up again not sure what's going on
  • there we just decided we're going to
  • walk away from it not quite as long as a
  • previous owner did but we pull the plugs
  • back out put a little fluid in the
  • cylinders let it set overnight so now
  • we're just going to try to work it back
  • and forth with the break over bar
  • hopefully we can get it past that hard
  • point and get it where it's turning over
  • good night maybe if we pull that valve
  • cover off make sure there's not a valve
  • it's on or something that's not we can
  • see if there's something that's got to
  • be some reason why still that tough on
  • turning over don't look too hard pull
  • that off and just make sure that
  • everything's working in there it may be
  • dry there may not be any old up there
  • too it's like about a 10 I'll go grab a
  • 10 real quick if I can find a 10 look
  • for an end
  • [Music]
  • yeah they got lucky I didn't have one on
  • the back oh yeah just you want to try to
  • turn it over again I'll make sure all
  • these valves and lifters and I don't get
  • too bad hey melon women yet I said time
  • to change
  • it's actually cleaner up in here than
  • what I was expecting yes
  • I'm saying all the cylinders no that's
  • her forever cylinder except this
  • yeah it's it's not as hard as that when
  • I hit that hard spot I mean normally
  • it's just a dance style gonna be worth
  • trying to hook the battery up to its I
  • think so it doesn't look like it's
  • hanging up as much as wise that we wore
  • the trial
  • yeah I'm gonna grab a battery real quick
  • straight off the torture so it should be
  • plenty plenty of hot for
  • yeah
  • definitely getting old up there don't
  • think it was trying to over quick enough
  • to get that all up there like it needed
  • to but there was definitely something
  • that was keeping it to want to get tired
  • every so often
  • [Music]
  • well now coming back home leader we
  • won't try to crank it with it off yeah I
  • think it's turning over Jason enough
  • [Music]
  • I gotta be careful my last I'll see how
  • my clothes get so dirty
  • she thinks I work hard I just use my
  • shirt for a just gotta learn how to work
  • what it looks like you're working that
  • you know might take a little while for
  • that old oil and the cylinders we put in
  • there to kind of burn out though if it's
  • I guess I'll go ahead and probably pull
  • this distributor cap back off and make
  • sure we are still getting fire at the
  • points
  • [Applause]
  • yes no down right but you never have to
  • have it back off again
  • yep should be good enough to make it
  • those trying to do something
  • give it a go that's not a smart boy
  • these wires hanging the greatest shape
  • what I can find
  • I guess
  • well was it expecting that I guess give
  • it a little bit more my face where's
  • that old well I have to say I didn't I
  • didn't expect if that was or didn't know
  • if that was going to happen or not
  • love that burger try it again let's try
  • it with a little bit more maybe if you
  • can poke a hole or something in there
  • sparked it in
  • when we put all that all in the
  • cylinders overnight just to let it set
  • of what it would do is just kind of
  • break away any rust or any grime in
  • there kind of give it a little
  • lubrication because this thing's been
  • sitting for just years it seemed to help
  • it seemed to work but now we've got all
  • the smoke coming out of it because that
  • spark plugs burning that all off and
  • it's liable to smoke pretty good until
  • we can get all that ole Elvis two
  • cylinders burn out but we're just going
  • to keep adding a little fuel to it
  • hopefully hook up our our little gas
  • tank and maybe this thing will run and
  • idle and move off the trailer like we
  • planned
  • gasping keep up are you thinking just I
  • think the gas wouldn't keep it up enough
  • in a while but it's just barely gonna
  • rise or boy yeah something like that or
  • some pliers or something
  • or at least you'd go get something well
  • on it get it off
  • this off I have to hit that with that
  • float with me too
  • very much gas in there as always over
  • we're trying to get this thing to run
  • and as long as we're pouring a little
  • gas into the top of the carburetor it
  • will run off that gas and then die what
  • we needed to do is to fill the bottle up
  • on the carburetor and actually pump it
  • through the thing so what we're going to
  • try to do is just tear the top end of
  • the carburetor off where we can get to
  • the flow it's probably stuck on there
  • won't allow the fuel to fill it up so
  • hopefully we can get to it from the top
  • of this get it cleaned up and that'll
  • allow that fuel to go in there we could
  • run it off our gas tank here was that
  • choke what was holding it the last time
  • yeah leaves
  • that's pretty rough
  • doing a good job of starting it up get
  • your strong Wesley and just get the shot
  • back suck it out or rag the red ahead
  • little bear all the good is it lost it
  • and it'll squeeze that back to a gas can
  • we even have any car cleaner
  • no wonder my no feel was gonna run that
  • air house out here try to blow through
  • it
  • I didn't blow through that little pump
  • there
  • [Music]
  • [Applause]
  • [Applause]
  • [Music]
  • I did a little better yeah
  • sucking too much air somewhere
  • on that backhand
  • well maybe that there at one of those
  • carburetors not timed all the way up
  • over either well that's the longest it's
  • ran since we messed with this thing you
  • got to have the choke fully fully closed
  • for it to stay running though so it's
  • it's probably getting too much air
  • somewhere it probably has a vacuum hose
  • that's rotted away or something so it's
  • sucking air there so we got to restrict
  • there at the choke so we're just trying
  • to look around to see dad found a bolt
  • over there with a carburetor at the base
  • of it is loose so it could be sucking a
  • little bit of air there there's a couple
  • heads who we found a couple different
  • hoses over there that different spots it
  • could be sucking air as well
  • it's just our Waterhouse's not always
  • pull it off on its like get it out away
  • our sire cold
  • trotty aunt or thanks huh
  • [Music]
  • [Music]
  • I always expect a flame to come up that
  • noise
  • that shouldn't be hurting therefore that
  • huh I think we're probably just gonna
  • have to Jimmy that choke just right and
  • I think we can get her to move off the
  • trailer for us maybe a second - let's do
  • that let's see if we can get some air in
  • these tires we obviously don't need to
  • run it too long anyways without that
  • radiator it comes down to it we can
  • always throw it back on there we don't
  • have a water pump but we can at least
  • feel it block up with some water yeah up
  • it a little bit see if we can get some
  • air in these old tires that don't look
  • like they should ever hold air and then
  • the motor that looked like it should
  • never run
  • so tagging it yeah didn't want to it
  • fires but now in here you ain't gonna
  • hold it long though this one's not gonna
  • hold there
  • say that back ones for sure you're not
  • gonna hold anything
  • that's good let's try this one just for
  • the fun of it just because it real
  • how does that happen let's say so most
  • of these tires ended up holding a little
  • bit of error we've got one on the back
  • passenger side that's leaked down just a
  • little bit on us but it's going to be
  • more than able to be able to get it off
  • the trailer we've moved it away from the
  • shop there's no brakes on this car right
  • now and know that but we're hoping that
  • we can unstrap this same crank it up and
  • unload it under its own power
  • [Music]
  • [Music]
  • well we probably shouldn't have tried it
  • in this whole thing but she's actually
  • running and driving under her own power
  • this car has been sitting for around
  • 30-something years I believe and I had
  • to say we had nothing to lose on this
  • whole thing I never expected it to run I
  • mean it had just piles of animal stuff
  • just all on top of it we dug all that
  • out found the motor got it running got
  • it moving maybe somebody else see a
  • little potential on this thing and I can
  • pass it on to them
