140 rebuild in progress, any interest?? San Diego
Posted by: Jim Stansbury ()

Red Badgett and I are working on a nice 140. Has aways to go but we are in no hurry. Some sheet metal is not correct and we are looking for the correct parts. Long block is finished with the exception of setting the valves and rebuilding the secondaries and getting the new linkage from Roger Parent. Does this interest anyone and if so we can let that oerson know when we are going to fire it up. Here is a couple early pictures of our progress. Thanks Jim

Marco, the fan will go as it is the only one I had left as also the turkey baster is for an early as it has no belt keeper on top. Also we are buying a 12 fin oil cooler. Work in Progress. Jim

Jim I may have an extra 12 plate cooler, LM Mag fan and a 65 140 turkey baster.

I'll PM you when I get home and check for these things.

Jim,
I know you have been around Corvairs a while, so comments are for all and any newbee's.
The earlier fan will blow more air "cfm" however the weight can make it flywheel and increase the chance of fliping a belt with a stick shift. I use the early 61 -63 fans on my Powerglide engines, unless I want to stick with stock exact proper.
There is a nice article on fan cfm output in the CORSA Tech Guide.
You Turkey baster... fan shroud... I see is not cut for a 12 plate oil cooler. As you know almost any fan shroud can be cut to accomodate the 12 plate cooler and it's larger cooler service cover. The belt giude is nice to have with stick shift's also.
