Blog over de restauratie van mijn '50 Studebaker Commander

Engine start

Today it was time to start the engine for the first time after a complete overhaul. So I set the ignition statically, connected a battery, made sure the oil pressure indicator was connected, cranked the engine for a while until I had a proper oil pressure reading to make sure all the bearings were properly lubricated. This also primed the carburetor, I kept the original engine driven fuel pump in place. This is where the film starts. I was pleasantly surprised to get the engine running at the second attempt. The comment at the end was from one of the bystanders. He say “It runs well”
