Re: 66 Chevelle Wagon Beater / Driver
First order of business was see if the motor was any good. It was stuck at first but I was able to break it free with a prybar against the starter. We pulled the plugs and squirted some 3 in 1 oil and rotated over several times.
We replaced the plugs, battery cables, battery and filed the points. Amazingly it fired right off with starting fluid. We drained the old gas out of the tank replaced all the rubber hoses and added a new filter. I poured 5 gallons of fuel in and with in minutes it was staying running with the new fuel in the tank.
Next order of business was the real axle seals and rear brakes. We drained the old nasty diff fluid and replaced the old axle seals and wheel cylinders that were internally rusted solid.
