Hi all, I have committed, in mind, an atrocity. I have a beautiful 1955 Chevy truck with the original inline 6 that I haven’t started in 4 years. I got so busy with life, I forgot about the old girl.
I’ve finally got the time to give her the time she needs and have a general idea of what I need to do to get her running again.
1. I have a new battery
2. The plugs have been changed
3. The coolant has been in the engine for 4 years, but it was brand new when it was put in, and the engine is all iron, so i assume no galvanic corrosion or wear.
4. A cover was on the truck this entire time, so no water got in
5. It was running 4 years ago when parked
Obviously I don’t want to cause any accidental damage, and need to pump the old fuel out of the tank and replace with new fuel.
I’ve picked up lead additive, and fresh oil with zddp additive.
Does anyone have any advice and anything else I should add to my list.
The first goal is to get the engine firing.
