      That all sounds pretty good.

      How are you feeling now? Are you close to 100%?

      I'm waaaay past that stage.

      It's pretty rare nowadays, but cars can and do break in surprising ways! Also, there are other ways to lose compression on a particular cylinder. :beer:

      It looks about right for Andy and Barney, but it'd have to be a Ford for that.


      Perhaps it was Roscoe's first cop car. :)

      Really? I didnít know that was a thing. Cool!



      I like that idea. They havenít called it a ďMiataĒ for a long time, but like a Beetle that doesnít matter. Itís still a Miata. 🙂

      This guy is so cool. Thatís a fantastic story. :heart:




      And this guy, too. :thumbup:

      For you.

      930s arenít to be taken lightly and if he has more fun with the Ď77 why wouldnít he sell it and drive the one he enjoys more?

      :beer:




      As long as what weight there is doesnít move too far away from the axle centerline, then yeah. Iíve seen a car that went from 17 to 18Ē wheels that weighed the same and had the same...
    9. :laugh: People forget rotating weight, too....

      :laugh:

      People forget rotating weight, too. Even flywheels and driveshafts have to be accelerated, never mind the wheels and tires. Lose weight in those areas and it makes a much bigger difference...

      Congratulations on the sale, but mostly on your time with it. I understand about stewardship with certain cars and it is a thing not to be taken lightly with such a fine vehicle. I tend to gravitate...

      I too would try a different GM dealer. I donít think it even has to be a Chevy dealer. Theyíd be less likely to have parts in stock, but for $1,000 itíd be worth waiting if you can get the warranty...

      I was wondering the same thing.

      Also, I donít remember the segmented belt. Did You mention it in the original thread, did I miss it or is that a failed memory?

      Agreed. I intend to fully prep my car before I do an extended road trip in it. In my case it will require a fresh engine since some yahoo removed the thermostat (which drastically increases cylinder...

      That was VWís problem in the late 1960s. Their cars were selling in huge numbers, but they were ill prepared for replacing them. They shouldíve been switching over to more modern cars by 1971, but...

      Hmmmm... Can you replace the ends with new ones? I got a ratcheting crimper and the proper connectors and now my crimps look like factory and are very strong, as opposed to those generic ones that...

      Id be happy to help!

      Extended trips in old cars are nothing to be taken lightly, but if the engine is healthy and running well, then by checking some things and changing ALL fluids to doable. I...

      On a scale from 10 to 10 that'd be a 10, especially not knowing the history. If you don't know much about air cooled VWs it'd be a 15 or 20.

      Just let me know if/when you have any specific...

      Fixed. There are very few mass-produced cars more elegant than the '65. I mean, that nose! :heart:
