Dave's 76 Roadrunner.....

Bringing back to life after 22+years

General Information

Owned since 1987, second owner, bought from a Family member....

Life took over and the car was left in a garage for 22+ years, kids all grown and moved out now ....

So I had my knee replaced (total) and was out of work for 3 months.... well about 4 to 6 weeks I got Cabin fever and started bringing back to life....

So I pulled all the plugs, put oil in cylinders and let set over night.... also drained oil over night..... with new oil and filter pulled distributor and intermediate shaft (oil pump rod) and primed engine..... clean plugs (and installed distributor and shaft)and fresh gas it fired right up no issues......
