i purchased a 1966 impala, engine number f1211gf
axle number DB1210G
can someone tell me what engine and tranny that is and the gear ratios on the axle?
also what i need to do to start it, it was parked for over 4 years, the engine turns over but wont start. Thanks.
We just started a 67 Impala that sat inside a garage for 25 years. First off change the oil. Get rid of any old fuel in the tank. Engines need fuel, spark and compression to run. You will have to check if you have all of them. We had to replace the fuel pump and carb to get fuel into the engine. We replaced the distributor with a HEI unit along with new plugs and wires to get spark. Run a compression test while the plugs are out. If all are good, It should run. Thats the short version.
yes i found it on the glove compartment, i have verified the engine but not the tranny and axle. talked to the previous owner and he told me that has a two speed powerglide. Im trying to star it but im having some electrical problems, replaced cap, rotor, plugs and will replace points tomorrow and try again, wish me luck, im desperate to hear that engine running.
Thanks! So from the cowl tag and pop, I can tell your car has these options:
Deluxe seat belts
pushbutton AM radio
rear seat speaker
black vinyl interior
Was there any other original paperwork in the glove box? it was Yellow originally, a nice color.
