If only looks were everything.
I'll see who I can find locally or not locally.
Perhaps an exorcist might be an option?
I've been wrenching for 30+ years and will figure this out too. Just want to enjoy the car more as it was my dad's before I was born.
Thanks for the advice. I mean it.

Working on my Open Wheel Formula style car today. Trying to get all the brake lines and hydraulic clutch lines tight and not leaking. I should have used regular brake lines instead of stainless steel because they are way harder to get a good seal on the flare fittings.
Corvair 102 hp engine mated to a VW Transaxle. The engine is running reversed and was done by the previous owner. I'm just learning corvair stuff.

That is an interesting, and very different way of running the Alternator!
I would be a bit concerned about the ability of your engine to cool sufficiently, due to that large pulley restricting the cooling air opening in the top-shroud.

You may be right but this will basically be a show car that will run to get it on and off the trailer at a show. It will be modeled after the 1967 Ferrari 312 F1. The engine will be mostly covered with the fake exhaust pipes and velocity stacks. More to come with pics as I go.
Thanks for your comments, any are welcome.

I worked on parting out my imposter 66 Corsa a little further this last weekend.

With the recent sale of the wire wheel hup caps and the front seats, I have now broke even on my investment and yet still I am driving around this winter in an enjoyable 66 Monza convertible with a great 140 engine.

A few club members asked for help in getting their Corvairs running again after the long quarantine left them unable to be started. I loaded the trunk with some tools and repair goodies and Cathy and I have been doing free mobile Corvair repair here or there. Nothing major of course. Mostly bad gas, vacuum leaks, flat tires and dead batteries but a good excuse to take some long drives with the top down and enjoy getting outside the house for while.

Some days I'm not sure I like these rims I put on it but after owning and storing them for 15 years it's like they were free to me, right? smiling smiley However, after seeing what they sell for on eBay they may be in a shipping carton soon.

I've been working on updating the instrument cluster for my '66 Monza - dual cylinder head gauges, oil pressure gauge, and air conditioning. Not something which stands out when installed in the car, it struck me today how beautifully integrated the a/c outlet was with the gauge pods.

Scott,
Wow, super clean. Like the idea of having two head temp gauges.
Your work looks flawless. I look forward to seeing the finished product.
