Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be dead in minutes!
Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer & build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all & just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

Cash for Clunkers: How to destroy an engine.
This is a video document showing how to seize an engine under the Cash for Clunkers program...After draining the engine oil the vehicle is filled with approximately two-three quarts of salt/water/silica mix. The vehicle is then started and ran till the engine seizes. Enjoy!

How long will an Engine run without oil?
I recently found this dusty VHS tape of a test I did for an Engine Oil Additive company. In the early 90's, I tested this friction reducing additive. The product was actually pretty good but the company is not around any more.
I had to edit it this way because some scenes showed/named the place that allowed me to perform the test & donated the car. We ran the product in the engine for a 1/2 hour, then drained it & ran it without oil. We actually placed bets on how long it would run.... times ran from 10 to 51 min. The engine ran the full 51min at about 1000-1500 rpm. Since the the last time on the betting chart was met, we then revved the P*** out of it till it went up in smoke. 56 min of total run time & the last 5 were at high revs. She put up one hell of a fight!!!
**** obviously DO NOT run any engine for any amount of time with out oil ****
