Dave- This is obviously intended to measure the temperature of the washer fluid.

I'm sure that's meant for the V8 conversion cars.

I got an email this morning following up on my sign up a while back.
I spot checked engine gaskets, weatherstripping, etc and found not much at all Corvair specific. All I found was a trunk weatherstrip gasket and last time I checked Edelbrock doesn't make Corvair carbs that require a 4 barrel gasket.

I unsubscribed from the mailing list. Better things to do with my time.
Unfortunately it does look like a money grab attempt on the higher profile the Corvair seems to be gaining these days.

YMMV

Good price on Russell Speed bleeders; $11.99 ea which is better than I could find on Amazon. I will definitely be getting a set of these.
Lets hope they spend some SERIOUS time getting the photos updated.

They are around $14 on Amazon, and I get them in 2 days, with free shipping smiling smiley


Not impressed with OPGI's offerings (made another Clarks order this morning).

Looks like Clark’s has nothing to worry about.

Wonder if they'll be at the convention. All the REAL vendors will.

I use a water temp gauge as an oil temp gauge (goes to 280).
