Not actually something I think I need to do yet, but looking ahead --

Is there a transmission guy in California that people recommend for corvairs? Assuming I buy the parts myself?

Dan Drammerhouser (?) also rebuilds Corvair differentials. He is somewhere down in the South Bay (LA area).

Dan can also add a drain plug if yours does not have one. You should also have him look at the differential as well.
