We did the last one in 2009 so it probably has a 2010 publishing date. They're published about every 10 years. As I understand it, Mike is currently working on an update but I have no idea when it will be published.

I need a volume 3. Does the CORSA office have them? Do they all come with a CD? I have no need for that.
I use my Volume 1 and 2s a lot, especially the head table, distributor information and crankshaft/camshaft orientation.

Currently, there are three CORSA Tech Guide volumes. Volumes 1, 2 and 3.

Mike McGowan is working on Volume 4 and we're hoping it will be released sometime mid-year.

To Jim Brandberg, Jerry Brown is the CORSA's merchandise person. He may be able to sell a single paper copy of VOlume 3 without the CD. Here is his email address:

I think Mike Hall has a stash of them, too, but I don't know for sure.

I e-mailed Jerry while I was thinking about it. Another Tech Guide volume and a new book Corvair Style, I might have to put Hercule Poirot book aside for a while.

Years ago -- YEARS ago -- Peter Ustinov, he of "The Grand Prix of Gilbraltar" and much more, was on a talk show where it was mentioned his role portraying Hercule Poirot. He replied, "As opposed to water-cooled Poirot."

The host and the studio audience missed the joke.

How about selling Volume 3 on a CD with an index for Volume 3 only. We have Volume 1 & 2 already on CD. I would like to purchase the additional volumes with an index on CD when they come out.

How about they just put it on a small thumb drive. Only one of my new lap tops has a disc drive anymore.
