    and a bit more selling..
    part 2


    part 1


    what I like about this - this isn't roadkill where they barely make it run then throw thousands of dollars at parts at something for a "junkyard" build.... not to spoil too much, but the fix an oil pump.... fix, not rebuild, fix.... if you're interested in how old cars work - this is it....

      not really sure I would call that fixing the pump, more just cleaning it, but that's still pretty cool!

        roadkill would simply try to start the motor and when it didn't turn replace it with something else... how they got the piston to move initially was pretty cool too.... but for that you need to watch part 2

            I already watched all of them, pretty cool stuff.
