Re: 1963 Corvair Monza 900 Convertible

I believe it’s for the jack or jack tools

Re: Stuttering/surging

At long last I’ve found and solved the problem... I have 2 sets of Wolf renovated carbs... in these 2 sets i have 1 set that don’t ‘match’ and one set that have one ‘bad’ carb. As i have now discovered when i swap the sets over it gave a similar problem with stuttering/surging. When i took the ‘good...

Re: 110hp block + 140hp heads

Thanks for the info Brad and 66vairguy :)

I’ll check the heads and see if they’re fixed or not.

Re: 110hp block + 140hp heads

T0203RH is a 1965, 1966, or 1967 110 hp configured for a Powerglide automatic. The 1965-1966 140 hp Corsa engine and the 110 hp Monza engines shared the same camshaft, and essentially the same bottom end. The 140 hp crankshaft was a nitrided crankshaft (advanced heat treating) and can be identified...

Re: Stuttering/surging

Sounds like it might be running lean srt 66 Corsa Turbo so-cal area I’ve increased the carb jet size from 49 to 51... both carb idle mix screws are backed out 2 turns... so if anything it’s running to rich? Still haven’t solved my problem of stumbling... i have at idle a fluctuation of revs and not...

110hp block + 140hp heads

I’ve been lucky this weekend and managed to buy a 110hp block that’s 95% complete and looks like it’s been renovated already :) T0203RH, so it’s a 110hp with PG i believe I’ve also (in the same purchase) got hold of two 140hp heads (not assembled). The original 110 heads were not there anymore. I’ve...

Re: Stuttering/surging

Does anyone know if a carburetor vapor vent rubber plug isn’t opening or closing correctly, could this give the problem i have?

Re: Stuttering/surging

:goodpost: Just trying to backtrack a bit to see if anybody missed anything. With compression readings like those it does not appear that mechanical fault is at the root of your troubles. OK... I’ve done a compression test and here’s the results of my 102hp #1-150, #3-152, #5-160, #2-152, #4-168, #...

Re: Stuttering/surging

Put your timing light on & set it to 18 then adjust your idle back to 550 - 600 RPM. My 62 Monza only went to 16 but the Chevy dealer mechanic said to set it at the right side of the timing marks block & that would be 18. I’ll try that 64powerglide, mine also only shows to 16. So when I said ‘30 pl...

Re: Stuttering/surging

If your crank pulley is only one piece, it is known as a crank pulley. If it has a rubber insert, it is a harmonic balancer. Please take a good look and let us know. Jerry, it’s a crank pulley not a harmonic balancer. I have harmonic balancers on both my 110hp. I know all about failing harmonic bal...
