So, you are saying that the problem is solved? If the gear is round, what shape are the flywheel teefs?


Another quality post.

Good job on your Chevy X, Area 51 vehicle. Probably feels good to have that sorted.

Rusty Rod. .I meant that the gear of the old starter just freely turned round and round ,,which it should not do that ..as for the teeth on the flywheel? not bad at all very little wear . and it sounds good when I hit the starter as to a good solid grab ..

bartamos,, yes my Chevy X and me are getting along quite nice today ..thank you

Oh ! you ask whats next? well , I have dual carbs and after I get insurance on it to drive on the streets ,I want to take it to old school guy I have met who works on old carbruators .

What if I take my Chevy X stove bolt carbs to the Engine Shop ? They like figering things out there too,,don't they?? smile

Enjoy pushing the envelope do ya? You have been invited in the past to discuss your Chevy X in the Greasy Spoon Forum. Personally I don’t subscribe to the theory that because it has a inline 6 in the car, it fits the criteria to be included in a “Truck” site. It’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it!

You can ask about the carbs for sure. Many folks have twin carbs.

The truth of the matter is I am breaking the rules even if I call my car Chevy X ..If any of you post questions about your trucks in the spoon as for help ,,It gets moved to what ever the problem is ,, engine shop ,,electrical .drive line ect ect ..that is what is supposed to happen ,,that is the rules ,,the forum was built for trucks ,,and I am happy for all of you ,, great forum not cluddered up with all sorts of other vehicles ,, I was stepping over the line a bit.

No hard feelings against any of you ,, thanks again all of you for befriend me ,, I could stay and ask questions about my 71 Cheyenne as it is under the rules ,,but I have none about it ,, I donated when I first signed into this forum and have gotten every bit of its worth back and then some .. I have recieved more than I contributed ,,again I just wanted to say that me leaving is not because any one of you..

Drive the X to Homecoming and I'll bet there will be a swarm of truck guys around it. Personally, I consider the original engines of these old trucks to be the most fascinating aspect of the deal.
