I remember my first experience of having to pump the gas on a vehicle when I was 11 years of age. I used to go and stay a lot with my grandparents on their farm and my grandfather had this old 1950's model Chevy farm truck. The truck ran but was seldomly driven. I had always remembered that it was hard to start and I would go out and play in it. It had one of those floor starters in it and one Sunday my grandfather had went to town after church, my grandmother was inside cooking,and I was playing around in it behind this building and thought to myself "I wonder if I could get this thing to start"? So I turned the key & pressed the starter pedalto see ifthe engine would turn over and it did. "I need to give it some gas" I thought, so I placed my foot onto the accelerator and gave it a few quick pumps. I still had on my cute little floweredy dress from church, white tights, and a pair of red flats on. The engine turned over and over and I figured I hadn't pump it enough, so I released the starter pedal and sat there pumping it again repeatedly with quick strokes on the pedal. As my ankle began to ache I started pushing with my whole leg and being about 4'-8" at the time I had to grab the steering wheel to keep myself pulled up close to the pedal which made my small frame bounce up and down in the seat with each pump. Suddnly I noticed the choke and after several more pumps and pulling out the choke, I pushed in the starter and placed my left foot on the gas and pumped it while holding the starter down and the engine finally sputtered to life. "COOL" I thought as I sat there revving the engine gently. Not too long after that my grandfathere taught me to drive the truck in an open field and needless to say many funs days of cranking that old pickup followed. Christina

Love those stories about girls trying to start one of those old vehicles with a floor starter.
Push harder honey, it'll start.

Can you tell us about the first time you ever flooded a car before Christina?

My first experience was somewhat similar, except that it was by proxy. My sister, who is much older than I am, had parked our family's '65 Plymouth Belvedere at a convenience store and had gone inside to buy something. For some reason I don't remember anymore, I decided to pump the gas pedal while she was gone. I was too young to know about flooding a car, so maybe I just thought it was cool. Anyway, when she returned and tried to start the car, it just cranked. She pumped it periodically, all the while getting very frustrated. People watched her as she cranked and pumped, and after several minutes of hard cranking and some encouraging sputtering, a man came by and told her he could smell the gas and that she needed to hold the gas pedal to the floor until the carburetor cleared. She did so, and after 15-20 seconds of cranking it finally started up. So that's when I discovered how to flood a car. I've spent many years using that understanding, to various good and not-so-good ends.
