Depending on the year of manual there were corrections.

I think the correction sheet is in the FAQ's.

61 shop manual has most specs, in the specification section near the rear of the manual. The 63 supplement will have any updated data for the 145 cubic engines, along with the corrections noted in the FAQs here.

I would think it obvious that I do not have a shop manual. I also do not see a limk for FAQ's. Thanks anyway.

FAQs are at top of forum discussion list. last of the stickys.

On ebay you can get a digital copy of the GM manuula for a reasonable price. just search for your year & model shp manual cd.

My apology for thinking that you had a manual and was just lost trying to find it. I see now you are new to the forum. in the FAQs, you will find a list of suggested books. shop manuals #1 to get. Books by Bob Helt come next. a cd containing the Corsa Technical Guide is very helpful along with the junkyard primer. All these can be purchased from our vendors or maybe even off ebay. Bob Helt is on this forum. You can PM him here and order from him direct. even get him autograph the books for you.

Have fun with your Corvair.

it should be obvious to you that wrenching on a Corvair without the Service Manuals is a Fool's Errand.

Yes!!

But we try to make sure you get the correct info.... not numbers off the top of our heads..

Same reason no one has made a separate Reference for Torques.

The TWO items on Torque that come to mind..

1/4-20 bolts are in INCH LB. not FOOT!!

And due to age of the cases / aluminum softening...

Most of us only torque head nuts to 28-30 ft. lb.

Can you tell us what you are assembling?

Also, the Corvanatics website has digital shop manuals to read. I find these very handy when a computer device/phone is close by and my shop manuals are not.thumbs up

Thanks again for the 65 shop manual. Could I bother someone for the same for a 63? Frankenvair is a 63 with a 65-67 engine. Also a 64 trans and I assume diff. Which reminds me, would anyone know where I could obtain the center leaf spring bracket for a 64? I have a new rubber and an extra 64 rear suspension. I could likely make one, but the real thing is always better.

People on this forum have sold factory shop manuals VERY CHEAP. That is the stuff that appeals to some of us. I own every year shop manual but I do not have every year of Corvair produced. Call me a fool I guess. Lots of good information including torque specs.

Hey, Thanks. I've looked that catalogue over (not the easiest to use) and never found that page. Already having the 64 transaxle and a 64 rear suspension from a parts car, I really wanted to use that spring. I'll use the 64 lower control arms of course, but are the coil springs different?

Coil springs are different in 64. THAT CATALOGUE IS AWESOME (and is very easy to use after you use it a few times). We are lucky to have our vendors with this hobby. Clarks also sells shop manuals.

Yes, DO NOT USE 63 coil springs with the transverse leaf. Your car will look like it is on tippy-toes!eye popping smiley

You must use the whole spring set on the rear from a 64.

The paper Clark's catalog is easiest to use for us old folks. The online is also good, and easier to carry with you (as long as there is internet connection...), with the exception of when multiple pages are clickable in the index, it drops you off in no where land (no where you wanted to be) and you have to page back and wonder where you should be. As for example, shock absorbers in the index give page 137-139 as a blue link. Click on that and you are no where!grinning smiley

I think they may have fixed some of these hyphenated page links over the years.
