This wasn't today, but I haven't had a chance to post this. I painted my suspension pieces and muffler hanger (the crossmembers, springs, and brake drums and backing plates are already on the shelf) and started putting them back together.

Here in WV it has been either raining or snowing or just plain cold ( and working 12 hour days). So today the sun was trying to shine and I just under covered both cars and started them up, set back and listened, not too shabby.

Fired up the 69' and went for a short cruise to get gas and enjoy the balmy 27 degree afternoon. Ran great and seemed happy to be out of the garage for a short drive!

Congratulations, Frogfinder! I guess that's the biggest single thing one can do to a car in a day.

I'm no longer using the old clutch linkage, so I thought I'd remove the pivot under the middle of the dash. Imagine my surprise when I put a wrench on it, and it fell out before I even got to turn the wrench! Just tapping the wrench on it when I was fumbling around dislodged it.




I made my own shock absorbers for the rear of my car. They're a bit stiff, but they're adjustable!




I bent a piece of brake tubing. Inexplicably, this took most of the day. The picture looks as if none of the angles are square with each other. They're not. It looks better in the car.

Got the call from the machine shop, crank needs to be turned. So, ordered 10 under bearings for mains and rods, and new pistons($$$), since three of mine were cracked. Still waiting on the head shop to return the heads.

Well, another beautiful day in central Kentucky. My sympathies to our Corvair brethren in the northeast. Today four couples met for lunch at the Berea Artisan's Center in Berea, KY. It was bright sunshine all day with temps in the mid 40's. On the way back, two of us opted for the Valley View Ferry, the oldest continuous business in KY. John Craig established the ferry as the result of a military land warrant and a franchise by the Virginia assembly in 1785, seven years before KY entered the union in 1792. The ferry has been in continuous operation and was privately owned up until 1992 when the county took over. Enjoy the pics.

I went out into the garage to take a look, then went back outside to 27 degrees and snow.

The tachometer on my Spyder has been very inaccurate at higher rpms, so today I replaced it with an NOS unit I purchased from eBay. It is nice to have an accurate tach again (although I did need to recalibrate the NOS unit, it was about 100 rpm off). One more little chore done!

Wayne, I did indeed have a lot of fun today. Here's hoping for an early spring. I don't know where Kaysville is but I had the opportunity to visit SLC and Ogden a couple of years ago and really enjoyed myself. It was however in middle of the July and considerably warmer than 27. We did encounter snow on the mountain when we visited snowbird.

I thought about taking the 64 out for a ride today. I decided to take it out tomorrow instead and play $10 on nickel video poker and then come back home. Should be a short outing.

I took the Corsa down to my local Corvair shop and had the oil,filter and trans/diff fluid changed. Also replaced a burned out tail light bulb. Still trying to find a perfect set of windshield trim. Then I put in $48 of ethanol-free 93(@$4.69/gal!) and cruised back home in the 75 degree sunshine. Same weather forecast for the next three days, then a little rain. Hang in there all of you dealing with winter blues!cool smiley

I replaced the Clutch, Pressure Plate, Flywheel(now a bolted one), and transmission today along with the mounts. First time changing a clutch/trans in a corvair and must say it wasnt too bad at all except for all of the grease!
