[Video] Watch Them Start 100-Year-Old Engine With Kerosene


This ancient engine was in pretty bad shape, but these modern gear heads got it fired up again with the help of a little Kerosene. The 1909 10 hp Blackstone engine was typically used for pumping water. This particular engine was the victim of explosive sabatog somewhere in the early 1920s. It was lost during a river flood and buried in silt for years until it was discovered in the 1990s. Nearly 90 years after it's sabotage, this Blackstone was returned to working order.
