Wow, does anyone know of a source for 64 brake drums? I see that the front are a one year only. Would 60-63 still fit? Does anyone have a source for new drums? thanks.

Yeah, I went and checked the other thread and noticed the Monza cross on the front fenders. Still a really nice car. I wonder whose it is?

My wife and I just finished watching the "Queen's Gambit" on Netflix, primarily because the story takes place more or less in Lexington, KY. In episode 6 of 7, there is some extensive footage of a Maroon, 65 with I believe, a 140 in it. I didn't notice if it was a Corsa or not. Anyway, it was a beautiful car whosever it is.

Using a wind vane to cool a Corvair engine. Now why hasn't someone thought of that before? 66 vairman, thanks for the reply. That is exactly what I was thinking. Here in central KY it does get plenty cold and I do drive the car in the winter. Therefore, I need plenty of heat and usually I get it. I drove it one year on New Year's day when the temp dropped to 6 degrees. I was w

Good luck. It could take longer, It usually does when I'm involved. But it sounds like you have some good friends that are willing to help you out. It should be fun.

Okay, this is timely as I am about to pull my power pack out for some "refreshments." The last time I had mine out, I blocked off the outlet on the top shroud. However, I left the hose intact from the firewall to the heater. My thinking was, I could still get some cooling air in the mix if I wanted it. Am I wrong?

Drive mine all the time, like so many others on this forum. Today, it was just for a fillup for a trip tomorrow (all day) And then a stop for ice cream on the way home. Unfortunately, I forgot it was October 2nd so I didn't get any pictures.

Al, I've got about 8 years and 80,000 miles on mine and no troubles. So, yes it definitely works.

That's a gorgeous car. I know you must be extremely proud of it. I know I was when I finished mine. Of course, now 11 years later it's starting to show its age.

congratulations, I know first hand what a great experience it is when you take it out for that initial drive. You are really coming along with that truck.

Add me to the list. I installed one in my 61 Rampside that has a 64-95HP PG engine installed. When the carburetors are warmed up, it idles at 800 in neutral and about 600 in drive/reverse. I swear by it. It's a little pricey, but well worth it to me.

Go for it Nick. You may never get a better chance at a complete truck. Especially if it has a title.

Yeah, nice pickup but I doubt that you can power it with a Corvair engine. Maybe two, one at each end.

I've got one very similar to the one Caroholic posted that I've had for 30+ years. Still works great. I think if I were buying a new one today, I would consider a digital like the one Matt posted. You can do so many things with a meter like that.

You may want to change the name of this thread, or start a new one as I believe this information is important for anyone who has installed a compressor from Clark's. Maybe they are no longer selling the HD unit, but they sure did sell a lot of them in the beginning.

Interesting, I'm 68 and I still enjoy the music almost as much as I did as a teenager. I spend a lot of time in my car alone or with my dog and the music is great. Granted, I have to play it a bit louder these days, but hey, I'm alone in the car.

Dave, you mean all the way to Tacoma and all you had for entertainment was Ina? Actually, to tell the truth, I didn't use my radio either. I do use it all the time when I am alone in the car. I do have to turn it up pretty load, but not so that it's distorted. I do think that the modern DIN radios are the way to go, and what the Stig has come up with is a good alternative until Er

The big red wire was probably the 12+ coming from the battery. If it was not properly connected that could be your problem.

I know the original post was about grounding the thermister, and/or the gauge. But I posed a question about my temp gauge not registering at all. Someone posted that by grounding the lead to the temp gauge and turning the key on, your gauge should go to 600. Well, mine did. Also, the thermister measured 4.5K ohms resistance. So the only thing left was the connection under the driver's

Thank you Les for asking the question and to Mel for answering it. I wondered the same thing when I saw that picture.

thanks J.O. I doubt it is the thermister as the gauge read the same with two different engines in the car. I suspect either the connection under the driver's side rear seat, or the gauge itself. I will check the thermister anyway, I believe it is supposed to be 5000 ohms, plus or minus.

I get the grounding issue on gauges that constantly read 600. What could cause a gauge to read low? My 140 never hits 300 degrees according to my head temp gauge but I know it has to be running hotter than that, especially in the summer with the A/C on. This problem has been getting worse for some time.

Like it says, I am looking for an early convertible body. Don't care about the rest of the car, just looking for a solid, rust free body, (or mostly rust free) Title not important. Would prefer something east of the Mississippi and maybe even within 500 miles of Lexington, KY. Let me know what you've got. Thanks. needpart
