What is the proper sequence in starting a '53 Chieftain?
Just recieved my first project car. I was told it runs, but how do I get it started? Turn key and push starter button at same time? Or do I turn key and then push starter button.

The key is for ignition "on". The button engages the starter.

1. Key on.
2. Push button.

You may also have a hand choke on that so if the car is cold, make sure that you have the hand choke pulled out all the way. When it starts, push it about 1/4 to 1/2 way in until it warms up. Good luck! Mark
