Thank you .it’s mainly info about the manufacturer.May 27, 2016 at 6:09 pm #268280Steve StruchenParticipant
Try the “Reference Library” link in the bottom green (topaz?) box to the left. there is a lot of manufacturer info in that area. You may have to look around to find info that applies to your particular car.

Finally! A GREEN one!Car looks good. The fuel tank/spare tire carrier look legit. So too the removable side covers on the engine.

A read through the manufacturer comparison thread is also a great education. There is a post on the Daytona

Not sure that is a Chevette Engine. Mine is “painfully” 1980’s stock and it looks significantly different.The Pontiac T1600 (I think that is what it was called) was another variation of the GM Engine used in BCW Model 52’s – which I think were 99.9% identical to the Chevy Engine.Were Ford engines used in MiGi’s too?Tom

Yes. Ford Pinto and Mustang II 2000 and 2300cc engines were commonly used for kits. Parts for the Ford engines are MUCH easier to find than the Chevy.

From everything I have researched its a 1.6 chevette motor missing all of the electrical components for the fuel adjustment solenoid on the carb .so it’s running open loop from my understanding of it so far.but I maybe wrong the guy said chevette he didn’t know which year they used tho he guessed 84 because the titleJune 3, 2016 at 3:19 pm #268287ray10Participant

The ’80’s were a terrible time for engines. They typically had 3 miles of vacuum hoses with dozens of time delay vacuum check valves, solenoids, and relays all in an attempt to meet federal emission regulations. If your engine is missing all this stuff, I can only think that is a good thing.

I double checked – it is a Chevette engine, BUT without alot of the pollution control crap that mine still has. Funny thing is that yours does have a shroud over the pulley system (mine does not) so that you won’t catch your necktie whilst working on the beast!If you don’t have the air-pump and set-up of a line to the cat, your front belt system is a bit shorter than the stock confirguration too.One of these days I’m going to pull all the emissions stuff off of mine too.Tom

I’ve been reading his forum he made for chevettes.I’m the type to read and research before I post about stuff.but if you do remove all of that stuff go with a 32/36 weber.that’s what I about to switch to.I’ve been having problems with hot starts and the smoothness of acceleration.fine art low throttle and at wot but it because the second barrel doesn’t like to open till wot because the removal of everything but then again I didn’t get to drive it when it was on it either.but motor has 6,xxx miles since rebuild and is been extremely reliable so far I daily drive the car I’ve put about 35 bucks in so far (5 at a time)and have went 637 miles.thanks for the help so far guys.I’ll post more pictures after its bath.
