Went to a breakfast in our subdivision with our cars and some from the in Lakes community nearby. Last night was Cactus Corvair Club celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 68 Corvair held at the Pavilions in Scottsdale along with their usual Friday night show. There were no 68 models in attendance and there are none in our club. Disappointing!

Rolled it out and washed it. Rolled it back in. Flood house repairs taking all my time for a while longer. Picking up desired parts as needed for misc services. Looking forward to Spring.

Cincinnati Corvair Club pulled out a 66 Convertible from 39 years of hibernation for a new club member. Car was recently inherited. One owner, 45K miles and has been parked in a garage since 1979. One of the most rust free cars I've seen. Top, interior, under carriage and engine compartment in fantastic condition. Body is a little rough with many dents, dings and scraps. It will be restored and put back on the road. Another one saved!

Look like your trunk lid was not closed when you took that drive.

Added the front air dam. I've heard it makes a difference at high speeds to stabilize the front end. I was surprised by how much of a difference it made.

I didn't feel safe on the freeway because the car wandered from side to side but now I zoom on down my lane.

Had the local Corvair Doctor the good Bill Pritchard make a house call to replace my missing pitman arm bushing that fell out on the way to Vairs In The Valley. Nice getting a couple of fall drives to work in this week. Handles great again.

Well, last night...
Pulled all my plugs and checked gap. Noticed the plugs looked like they were running lean. Stock jets are 50 in the primaries, I had recently reduced from bigger (as big as 54s at one time) down to 51s, I think that's too lean based on newer fuels and cam, porting, etc. so I put 52s in. I debated jumping to 53s but replacing the jets is not too difficult so baby steps. Also painted the timing mark in the HB so it's more visible. Marty Scarr is coming over with a fresh set of eyes so hopefully he can see anything I've been missing while chasing my tail with low rpm "bucking"..

...and Marty came over, a HUGE thank you goes out to him as we made significant progress. Initial timing was set way to hot at about 24 degrees, a left-over from a failing coil. (aftermarket Bosch coil) He set it to 16 and it's WAY better. He suggested I take it to 14, up the idle screws a bit to compensate and explore limiting the travel of the vacuum advance a bit.

Picked up a complete set of Kelsey Hayes wheels last week, along three spare wheels. One of them had been reversed a long time ago. Slow day with a head cold here so I took it apart and flipped it and reassembled correctly. Cleaned up pretty nicely.
A few of the wheels are rough and some pretty nice. I should be able to get a nice complete set out of these for my '64 Spyder.

I found some rust...



I probably didn't need to cut away so much, but one can't be too careful.  It's pretty good above the belt line.

My #2 car is rusted in different places.  Hmmm...

I am going to buy my own timing light, a better one than the POS HF one I have now that barely lights up... but I advanced the timing a little bit (probably close to 16 again from a low of 14BTDC where it was a bit doggy off the line, and taped a 1/8" drill bit in the opening of my vacuum advance. So close, but I think I'm going to try a bit larger drill bit as it still bucks a bit at 35 MPH or so above 2000 RPM with lots of vacuum.
