yellowbusguy : This is way after the fact and for those in the future: pouring gas from an open container in the carb is extremely risky. I knew a guy who got third degree burns to his face and upper body resulting in months of hospital and recovery when the car spit back and it all lit up. If you noticed all the fuel the fan was blowing back to the firewall, would result in a big fireball. Very cool project though.
Brian Critchley : You are a mechanical genius !..
Kameron Moon : For those of you that claim that old things were built better: Some of this is true, and some of this is not true. The cars that were built 60 years ago do last longer in a sense, that literally everything is designed to be user serviceable, and their mechanical simplicity allows for things like a vehicle to sit for 30, 40, 50 years and be started again with a weekend of labor. However, back in the day, even in the 1960's and 1970's, Vehicles were considered Used up, Junk even at 100,000 miles. 200,000 miles on a car was considered a feat. The truth is that our metallurgy and our technological advances are incredible by comparison. Anymore a car will go to 100,000 miles with virtually no repairs easily. Cars will routinely hit 500,000, and plenty of cars are joining the Million Mile club with a careful owner. So no. This car wasn't "built better" its simple, and chunky. Its crash safety is poor. Are these bad things? No. I love old cars. I want to own old cars, and tinker with them, its a great hobby. Would I drive a 1947 ford to work every day? Probably not. 
Paul Kruse : 1947 Ford engine starting after 31 years: http://youtu.be/wY389S_KUjs this is me in the morning Hahaha! 
mosipd : This brings back memories of my dad teaching me how to tune up an engine, setting the timing, dwell angle and the gap on the points...
Alexander Lae : I love resurrecting a car from the dead I dont think there is a bigger thrill in the automotive world. Good job.
David Lees : Lucky that thing didn't backfire up through the carb and blow your face off. Not smart!
salebasket : beautiful..
