My dad started his car up for the first time since he rebuilt his engine. Only ran it for 30 seconds total or so, still has no coolant in it. His car has a pretty mean sounding exhaust on it too. I took a video of the first 2nd and 3rd startup.
The first startup was without a fan belt, the 2nd one had on on, but is was not turning the alternator, 3rd time the belt was tighter and all went well.
