I probably will drive it as is for a while. I need to put the drivetrain back in my 64 first.

Steve, I really don't recall. I had just stopped for a 4 way stop so I could possibly been shifting into 1st. When it broke the car got a hard jolt.

It does not click in reverse. After The cable broke I drove it about two miles. I started it in 2nd gear and easily shifted thru the others by getting the engine RPM close enough to shift.

The clicking starts as soon as the transmission gears start rotating in 1st gear. It clicks when accelerating, at steady speed, decelerating and coasting with clutch depressed. Shifting from 1st gear to neutral while coasting with clutch depressed stops clicking. Clicking is more than once per wheel rotation.

About a month ago the clutch cable broke in my 66. I replaced it and now there is a clicking sound in 1st gear. No problem with other gears. I suspect a gear tooth snapped off when the cable broke

Bad fuel in an automobile is bad but in an airplane often times is a disaster. In the early 70's friend refueled his almost new Cessna 182 from airport underground fuel tanks after a day of very heavy rain and got water. He took off and the engine quit when he was only about 200 ft. high. Nothing to do but land straight ahead and it was not good. The front wheel did not clear a high terrace ro

I do like the looks and I'm impressed with his ability to blend the two together. I still would prefer the original because it is the real thing and simple enough a caveman could work on it.

This pickup was at the World of Customs show in Tupelo, Ms. this weekend. Excellent quality build. The owner said instead of restoring a 67 with upgraded suspension and modern drivetrain he decided to make a newer truck look like a 67. He said " from conception to completion took four months". Since building and showing this truck he has orders for four more.

My wife can but does not like to drive a manual shift. I am glad she doesn't because of the short lived Corvair clutch cables. A broken cable could be a disaster if it happened to her. Driving the 66 this morning I press the clutch at a 4 way stop and bang, clutch cable broke.This is the third cable break in less than 10,000 miles. This cable lasted about 3,000. All broke at the pulley. Replac

I have seen all the cars several times and the Tucker probably will bring the most and the 64 Corvair convertible will sell for the least. I'm not being critical of the Corvair it's just that the Corvair is unrestored and all other cars are more desirable collector cars.

I installed a Sanden 5 cylinder in my 66 with condenser in trunk with two 9”fans. The compressor had bad growl. I replaced it with a 7 cylinder which does not growl.

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.
