Tore down the top end, to track down an oil seepage. I suspected the top cover, and i think i was right. Added star washers under all the top cover bolts, to keep torque for a little longer.

While i have the carbs off, gonna do the Clark's teflon throttle shaft upgrade. That should get rid of my vacuum leak.

January 1, 2018 Polar Bear Run with local Vintage Motor Car Club. Actually, it is more like an un-official Corvair Chapter of the VMCCA. The Corvairs always outnumber all the other cars. Richard Payne (Ratt643) and I participated. It was 6 degrees when we left the house this morning. It warmed up to 16 degrees by the time we got back to Lexington, so we stopped at Baskin Robbins for some ice cream.

Richard's is the yellow 67, I'm in the turquoise 66.

As I have said before, my Rampside is used for its intended purpose constantly - hauling. Well as I’m sure many locales do, the garbage convenience center inisists all loads be covered with a tarp and tie downs. Fine except that corner by the ramp. The stake pockets work for the other parts. This has usually meant I tie the straps to the passenger door handle! Well I finally corrected that. This took about 2 minutes to bolt on and ought to make life easier!

Last night, buttoned up carb rebuild, after doing the Clark's throttle shaft, teflon seal kit. WHAT A FRIGGIN PROCESS THAT WAS!!!! Still having issues with Cal Corvairs, rebuild kits, having wrong size, aftermarket fuel inlet jet. angry smiley

So...will be installing these, back in "Whitey", for a trip to Kettleman City, this Sat.

Show us the different inlet valves?

Why not use the old ones if they don't leak?

Started swapping gears etc. from my Crown V8 mainshaft to the new one Mike Levine gave me. The reverse thrust washer that goes with the 'wavy' washer was broken from when I was trying to mate the tranny and diff. Super tight fit, tried to force it. That would have sucked if I hadn't discovered that. Should have the transaxle assembled by the end of the weekend. Progress! ;-)

Front seatbelt install completed. I opted for 3 pointers in the end. With no factory mounts I had to do it all myself. Worst part was the upper pillar plate which I installed using some wire, patience and cunning.

Wasn't today but Friday. Finished up the Civic steering joint shift coupler, and swapped the more correct horn button onto the steering wheel.
