What Am I looking At Here?
Posted by: playerpage ()
Date: February 19, 2018 10:06PM

So with the 65 Monza coming soon I'm going through the Assorted Corvair Crap box in my garage that I haven't looked through in years. What are these things? (See attachments) Any ideas? I'm thinking the gauge is a Tachometer, but I have no idea on the metal piece.

Thanks.

I have NO idea on what the metal piece is. sad smiley

The Gauge is a Fuel Tank Meter w/Idiot Lights! smoking smiley

It fits in the Right 'hole' (Right as you are sitting in the drivers seat looking at the dash) in a Late Model dash.

I have a few of those sitting around! eye rolling smiley

Thanks!

Tells you just how much of an idiot I am!!

I kind of assumed it was a Tach because I had switched (okay, someone smarter than I had switched) the mechanical Tach out for a digital one on the 180 Turbo I was driving all those years ago, and I thought I'd located the old part here finally.

Even though it's been a good 6 years since I had a 'vair in my garage, I haul the old boxes everywhere I go. Can't get rid of these treasures!

Factory tachs are electric.... never cable drive.

The metal piece looks like it could be a u-joint press

Metal piece may be for removal of the rear bearings?

The top pic is the lower ball joint press that Clark's sold some years ago. I have one and it works well.
