Mechanical Restoration

By 66Monza

Filed under: 1966 Chevrolet Corvair (Cleopatra)

I made the trip from NYC to Pittsburgh in my 'vair. It was fun until she burned up all the oil in her and I had to keep pouring more in. I did manage to replace the flywheel, clutch and pressure plate.
She is going to need a major engine overhaul. She is blowing whitish smoke on startup and when I shift gears of gun her. I would say she needs new rings and valves. I have heard that while I'm doing that, I might as well replace the cam, the pistons, basically pretty much everything. This is going to get expensive.

Sounds like it could get expensive, but it will all be worth it when you're done!
