how much is normal, is there an adjustment for this in the steering box? my steering wheel can turn about 1.5 inches before the front wheels respond, is this normal or something that can be adjusted out? before you ask I checked the tie rod ends and they have no play, what else should I be looking into? all help appreciated

I ended up finding that the 225/60/16 were too wide and tall for the front and rubbed when only slightly turning the wheel, they were fine for the back so I left them. in the front I changed to a 205/65/16 tire which has a diameter of 25.31 inches close to the 25.3 inches of the 205/70/14 and just barely will rub on one side but you have to turn the wheel to the extreme right. the difference in h

thanks for all the info, I have settled on 16" wheels and a 225/60/16 tire. it is about 1" in diameter larger than the current 205/70/14 and should increase my speedometer about 1.5% and since it it currently 2mph slow it should make it close to right on. I am waiting for the wheels to come in so no pics yet

I am thinking about 14", 15" or 16" wheels with 5 bolt pattern and 4.75" spacing, what I don't know is what is the correct back spacing or offset for each wheel size and what is the corresponding tire size for each siz

in florida, a corvair mechanic is as rare as hens teeth, there is one or two, but they are backed up with work for months. I feel there is a need for good corvair mechanics in every state and anyone who would like to get into it would find the amount of work they would need to make a comfortable living or supplement their retirement.

I agree to extending the cooling fins would help cooling. putting holes in them gives less mass to use as a heat sink like taller fins would do. from my dirt bike days

i need to check the diff oil. the power glide transmission is full of oil and doesn't leak, I believe that the diff is the problem and I think the carrier bearings are bad, if I find this to be true I will purchase a rebuilt unit from Clark's and have it swapped out. could it be a bent yoke on the diff, could you see something like this by running it on a lift?

I have all the " cocktail shakers" as you call them intact and in their correct places, I am going to replace the front brake drums as the rear drums have just been replaced. I am going to have the tires changed and balanced too to see if that helps. I agree that it may be 2 different things, the whine being caused by a warn differential and the vibration being maybe the front brake dr

it is a power glide transmission. the read brake drums were replaced so I'll have to look at the front. I will also look into balancing the drive shafts since the universal joints have already been replaced. I too suspect the diff bearings for the whining, I plan on having this look into also just waiting my turn in line for the local corvair guru to work on the diff. keep the suggestions c
