Hi,
Her is the link to an audio recording of me starting the Corvair. Any thoughts?

Sounds like your battery is still discharged.

You reported 11.95 volts..... that 90% depleted..

Put on a charger up to 10 amps.... and leave it for at least 2 hrs..

Even if it starts.... later tonight put the charger back on and leave it overnight..

You want 12.65 volts after the battery has set for at least 2 hrs.

So it doesn't sound like any other problem? I just would like to rule out any big problems. The ring gear is very good. I had someone try to start it and I was looking at the ring gear or at least I think that's what it's called and it wasn't budging at all. I can turn it by hand but that's it. The starter also works if it is off the car but with about a five second humming noise before it actually comes out and starts spinning.

AHH Starter motor Brushes... Inspect the starter... Brushes should be available locally.

Here's a nice write up with pics from Ken hand on starters...

He's rebuilding.... you can use his pics for reference

Clarks!! One of the best vendors... they stand by their products...

Take it to your local auto parts house and have them test it.. Then you'll know for sure..

No need to pay shipping needlessly! Helps Clarks as well
