You should have waited for some day light, James. That video is difficult to decipher.

That's why I narrated what I was doing, and you can hear the engine easily. It was actually much lighter on my computer, it didn't turn that dark until after YouTube published it. I may re-do it during the day sometime.

The video does not lie...on the other hand, I will never willingly choose a carb of fuel injection.

I'm just impressed that you have interior lights.

ROFL! So I have successfully debunked the myth that CJ7's don't have working interior lights One myth down, 20 to go! For my next trick I will re-do the cold start video during the daytime (but not today because it's 30 degrees and sleeting outside, what happened to spring?) and actually get an underhood shot when I do it, after which I will drive it out to the highway to prove that not only can old CJ's actually achieve interstate speeds at all (75+ MPH) but can do so smoothly that you can sit your drink on the dash and even let go of the steering wheel and it will keep going straight with only a very slight drift to the right over time! (which it's supposed to do)

With the remote start I won't have to put one foot outside when it's 30 degrees and sleeting, the neighbor lady hates it when I run out in my underwear...

Let me know how that works with those antiquated mixing boxes

I can't wait for the 75 mph myth to be debunked. But first I need to fix my brake fluid leak. Pedal went to the floor yesterday. Good thing I was in a field and not on the interstate debunking myths.

Hey, I figured shooting a video at 7 AM in a bath robe with a cup of coffee on the fender was a pretty good deal. Just picture Eddy on Christmas Vacation: "Merry Christmas... sh*tter's full

I might argue that fuel injection couldn't do any better. And yes, I could drive away like that and I have, many times.
