Under the hood of the beast lies a Vortec GM 454. I know how to start an old carbureted engine that has been sitting for 10 years, but an old multiport fuel-injected engine is different. If the engine runs without a knock we are in business and the nearly free junkyard monster truck can become a reality. We know it needs a battery, spark plug wires, and some fresh gas at least. We also talked to GM expert Stephen Watson at Offroad Design (<a href="http://offroaddesign.com/" title="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">offroaddesign.com</a>) for tips on what to try with this old engine. Stay tuned!
