The compression is high approximately 155psi each cylinder it doesn’t burn oil, new plugs, new wires, and a new coil. The problem is a flutter at lower rpms in both 1st and 2nd gears. I suspect...

Re: Air flow out of rear outlet flaps

I also am curious about these flaps. On my 64 Monza the left flap is always open, I assume that’s because it also is on the side of the oil cooler. But the right side is always closed.

The car would start while the battery was fully charged, but the gen light never went out and the engin...
