SOLD - Reverse Rotated shortblock New $600
Posted by: Seth Emerson ()
Date: November 18, 2017 04:00PM

I have a newly built late-model Corvair short-block for sale. Cylinder heads are not included. This engine was built for a Volkswagen Bus conversion. Original RA cases. It is all new (except the crank, rods and case) and is set-up for reverse rotation. It has .020” over TRW flat-top pistons, a new “264 degree” Clay Smith hydraulic cam, including the Otto Parts positive retainer on the drive gear. It is completely assembled. Also included are the VW conversion kit parts, including the Crown bellhousing adapter, 2 different-size flywheels, a reverse rotation distributor (special gear). Also, the upper engine sheet metal and top shroud, with a second fan-belt retainer mount on the driver’s side. The rear engine mount, probably VW Van specific, is also included. Everything is brand new, never run. If you are thinking of building a VW based dune buggy, Kit Car, or powering up your VW Camp-mobile, this is a great starting package. I may have a few other parts for it. I will even add a new Ignition wire set! I am asking $600 or offer plus shipping (which I would rather not do, but I will.) If you want pictures of items, contact me. Here is a view of the cam ID. – Seth Emerson - San Jose, CA

Seth, what all is required to make a reverse rotation engine, besides the dist gear and can? Is a reverse rotation can marked as such with an "R"?

1961 rampside with a 65 / 67 110 engine, car four speed.
Now I have 1965 convertible as well, got it running in June, autocrossed in July 2016 at the convention!

It's recommended to flip the pistons on a RR engine because of the pin offset on the piston.
Right off the top of my head, I don't recall if the Corvair pistons have an offset pin.
It wouldn't hurt to do it anyway.

RR cams should be marked with an "R".

Someone got a good deal.

Didn't someone recently post a picture of the two types of distributor gears side by side? Can't found it now...
