When I bought my 66 turbo it had been modified with 110 heads and maybe other modifications that I don't know about. It performs great with good power at low speed and excellent acceleration at highway speeds. Having never driven a stock turbo I can't make any comparison but I certainly am satisfied with the way it is set up.

I jacked the front up and spun the wheels both are very smooth and quiet. I jacked rear wheels one at a time and and spun them. The left has a very slight roughness sound that could be a Differential side bearing. Nothing unusual with the right side.

Steve Could be front bearing but I doubt it because I just repacked them before my last trip. The bearings looked good at that time but could still be the problem. I will check them again.

Fluid level is good. No power level or any other condition changes the noise. Just a steady low growl as long as the wheels are rolling.

On a recent 900 mile trip in my 64 I developed a low growl in the rear. I thought it was a rear wheel bearing so I installed new on both sides. Nothing changed so it must be in the transmission or differential. Coasting with engine off clutch depressed in neutral or in gear did not change the sound.

I have not tried other lubricants. Shifting is not stiff but feels more like an obstruction. The extra force required results in a release allowing it to engage. The last time I had the transmission out I clamped vicegrips on the shift rod, rotated and pushed and pulled into all gears with no difficulty. I think the problem is only when the gears are rotating.

The problem is normal shifting not downshifting.

What is the most likely cause of this? My 64 four speed has resistance to shifting into second gear. No clashing, just takes extra force to slide into gear. Using GL-4 80/90 gear oil, new shifter coupler, coupler to shaft pin fits good, detent ball and spring is good. A few years ago I disassembled the transmission but saw nothing to cause this. This winter I would like to get this fixed. I'm thi

The clutch cable on my 64 broke today just as I was about to leave tire store parking lot. About 5000 miles since new one was installed. This is the second one that lived a short life. I am thankful it broke before I got into traffic. I trailered it home but have not checked at what point it broke.

Just love to see and hear old engines come to life. I think the 28 Buick had been started before the video because it started too easy and had no smoke.

Just never clicked on automatic bids before. So, the highest automatic bidder's bid is the only bid shown until his limit is reached.

I did the system Steve Goodman referred to. That system required the deeper aluminum valve covers to clear the tube. I have since made a drip system that uses the stock valve covers. A copper tube is soldered along the top of the cover spaced 5/8" from the gasket surface. The holes are directly over the rockers and wrapped with fine copper wire to produce a drip instead of a stream. I ran flexibl

I took the switch apart and found the problem. The spring retainer had slipped out up enough to restrict rotation. I Peened it slightly and replaced it. It works fine now.

This morning I drove my 64 Corvair to get a haircut. While I am there a lady ask who the Corvair belonged to. I told her it was mine. She said she loved it and that her brother had one many years ago. When I start to leave I can't crank it because the ignition switch will not turn to the start position. I try several tines but it will only turn to the on position. I know It can be push starte
