Once I started I couldn't stop watching. I love seeing these come back to life.

Funny how making one of them old trucks come back to life can make you feel so good! Unfortunately most of the old 216's I attempted were beyond saving.

I watch a lot of the cold start videos and it amazing how ill-prepared they are when going to try and start an old car or truck. I know how some feel about starting fluid but carb cleaner can work as well and dissolve some of the grime. ohwell

Cold starts/ first starts and junkyard rescues are some of my favorite YouTube videos. I agree with you WE b OLD that some seem unprepared, and even unconcerned that it might be damaged by their efforts. Some don’t even pull the dipstick.
And some start them without coolant and/or oil for the fun of watching them blow up.

I got as far as watching that idiot destroying a scarce 3/4 ton brake drum with an angle grinder and had to turn it off! Did he ever gEt it running?
