Rex X First Attempt To Start The Engine after Many Years

The parts arrived from the online order and it was time to try to start the car, I ran into a few problems.

First issue the battery in the old glow starter was dead, it had not charged up. I discovered with a little botching I could insert an AA battery into it and use that for the initial testing.

Then just as the engine sounded like it was about to start, I broke the pull starter. I tried to repair it, but with some evidence of previous “fixes” I had carried out years ago, this time it was definitely fit for the bin.
