This is one of our many family T events. It was for getting the young ones involved in the outdoors. One of my favorite cars on this one. Didnt have time to take care of transmission issues for this trip which made for hard starting and noisy operation, but had a good time and fixed it when I got back! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvotZQGC2hw Fast forward where needed but check out pic at the end of video.

Yikes ... that was hard to start. Do you always start with the crank at 1:00 and push down? Everyone has their own way ... I usually set the crank at around 7:00 and pull up. If I start with the storage battery I pull really slowly with the spark fully retarded. If I start on mag I pull faster with the spark advanced about six notches.

Jack- great video. Listening to music beats listening to wind noise any day.

Great video. I love the car and the neat trailer, and the road shots in Umpqua country are beautiful. The starting sequence is scary. I broke my arm cranking that way. Now I only start by pulling up on the left, and never go over the top.

I knew I'd get some "kickback" from you guys on that starting process...Not my usual method either. I had just got that car 2 days before the hunt and didnt have time to rework and set up that transmission. Pulled extremely hard and needed all the momentum I could get. easier then over the top again.....Been starting them for almost 50 years and this was the worst setup Ive seen.

Deer hunting laws are different in your part of the country than here in Minnesota. We have to wear so much bright orange we can be spotted from a satellite out in space. Looks like every one had fun.

Well, Jack, loved the trip and please be careful cranking. Oh, we just don't want you to get hurt.
