Parts is Parts?

Anyone have an opinion (usually not a problem here)
of what used serviceable/rebuildable Corvair
parts & assemblies are most in demand???

I would imagine the Clark's list of parts they buy is a
start.

Thanks for any input,
phill66

Rebuildable is not usually in demand for any part but the rarest..

Good Running COMPLETE engines are always an easy sell. By Complete I mean all sheetmetal, etc. to just bolt in...no swapping accessories, etc.

Anything that rust's! I quit throwing things away I thought no one would want as I kept digging parts out of my scrap pile as people asked me if I had it, they do not make GM parts any more and I find the GM parts are better than the After market stuff, if it can be used I keep it and it will eventually find its way onto someones car.

Matt, what rebuildable parts/assemblies do you consider rare?
I would guess turbo units and anything Stinger specific,
but maybe not. What else if any?

Dave, "anything that rusts" doesn't narrow the field. After all,
as most of us know, rust never sleeps!

Right... anything that was low production compared to the Total of 1.8 million vehicles.. and is not reproduced...

Carter YH carbs Turbo sheetmetal / parts

Power top parts.... LM Trailing arms and rear hubs

Not being in the business... I don't think about it often...

Dave and other used parts suppliers will always know the market better.

Don't need one, but how rare/expensive are good used LM coupe rear
windows? Don't know if new rear windows are available? The shipping costs
alone would be mucho $$$ if required. I know first hand new tinted PPG LM
front windows are readily available and not too expensive,
at least mine wasn't.

Good list Matt, thanks. I know of a Corvair parts honey hole. Thinking of saving some of the jewels before they end up scraped.

Steering boxes. Not just special quick steering type.

Rear windows, you mean the large one piece you look through with a rear view mirror? Aka, backlight. Everyone seems to have saved a clear one. Tinted, yes, typically in demand. Rear side (quarter) glass, tinted is always in demand, especially if the other parts were also kept, door glass and vent windows all tinted.

Turbo distributors. Any distributor part numbered for 140 also.

Exactly what Dave is saying, good clean low rust parts will typically find a home. Early axle yokes fall into this category. No, they are NOT rebuildable, but ones with good splines are hard to find here in the east now. Check Dave's price for a good pair! Not a throw away item any more!thumbs up And now I am finding the yoke half that fits into the differential to be wearing out and replacements need to be found.

Based on my perhaps limited exposure, I would say ANY 164CI engine parts should be saved.

Excellent work guys, I'll create a list, check it twice and post it in
the near future for feedback. Lot of research involved, e.g., looking up 140 distributor numbers.

Dave, on the LM rear wheel hub trunnion, assume '66-'69 3/8" vs '65 1/4" u-joint bolts?

If used with the correct "Grade 8" 1/4-20 bolts, the 65 Yokes are fine for even performance street use.

Thanks Seth, I assume all LM rear wheel hub yokes are worth saving?

Dave, I can't locate my list of Corvair distributors at the moment, it's here somewhere.
For which application are the 110320 and 110380 distributors? I recall the 110310 for 95HP
and 110319 for 110HP.
