Eddie, There are several versions of T-3's. If your car is going to be judged, you need the correct ones. There are at least 4 different designs used in the 60's that I can think of, maybe more.

Tim, 50 of the 66 Stingers came from the factory with 3.89's. Yes they were 9 bolt and carried a different part number. In the earlier P&A 30's the 'Yenko" 3.89 is listed in it to purchase over the counter. I know Charles Lee here in Houston purchased 2-3 over the counter in the late 70's.

I have always thought the Garvin flares and spoiler make the cars look very 'bottom heavy' These ate not Trans Am's with big wide hips and curves. Just my opinion

Seth is correct . Then some guys found the car for sale. They were Porsche guys........ It had been sitting for years--decades. The car came with a couple of pickup beds of NOS parts. They got the car running, did brakes on it and made it drivable. They drove it to the reunion at Monterey. They had brake lockup issues and decided to sell it. They had put some of the NOS sintered iron brake s

technically speaking there were more fast idle solenoids, then GM made some changes. The 1962 was its own and it pushed instead of pulling. Going from memory the 1963 unit is the same as the 64-65 factory unit, it mounted on the condenser upright and was electric and vacuum. Later on GM offered an all electric replacement for this unit that looked like a 66-67 type with different mountin

For years I have used an early flywheel with a late PP in my race cars. I use the alumn flywheels with the steel inserts (early version was much easier to find for years) and a late non weighted pp with HD diaphram. I glue ARP shims to the pp similar to what GM did. It works like a charm. I use the late throw out bearing.

The tensioner is the old OTTO version (pre Clark's). Dad started spiral cutting the alumn tube and sliding it over the spring. It really helps negate the harmonics the tensioning spring makes. That tensioner works great

Edwin, I did Corvair heads years ago. If you are just doing 1 or 2 sets, it is by far, cheaper and easier to just have one of the guys listed to do them. There is quite a bit to it not to mention the time involved with setup.

My 64 Spyder has a cam, TRW's, 150/180 hybrid turbo and has 63 heads. It runs great. Yes you gain some compression with the quench, but the quench helps with detonation. I run super in it and its fine. My 66 180 Corsa coupe for now is mostly stock, but Tom k has been building me a set of heads that dad started before he sold OTTO Parts. They are 65-66 85hp heads with oversized valves,

he is looking for the shifter assembly that bolts to the floor. The alumn housing and the shifter handle up to the ball. I sold off the ones I had. A very tough part to find

I have seen a few cars with unstamped blocks that left the factory (3-4 over the years). I have one of those motors in the warehouse right now. I pulled it out of a 65 Corsa coupe -140hp I have had several NOS bare blocks and they all have had the port for the FC fill plug and the 1960 sending unit. Of the crate motors I have had my hands on, I would say 75% were ported for FC. My 69

There were some that got stamped that way. Erson ground the cams for a short period. Schneider ground them 90% of the time for Blake. A few of the Schneider cams even had the cross on the end. The cam really needs to be profiled. Blake would 'tweak' the grinds every couple of years. I doubt Clarks has. But I bet from the late 70's until the sale to Clark's, the OT-30 wa

If you are going to use a HV oil pump, as stated above, it is tough on the drive gears. Make sure you double dowel pin the drive gear on the dist shaft.

There was a 65 8 door deluxe at Joe Burch's place in Dallas after he died. I thought about buying it. I wonder where it ended up. It was solid and in pretty nice shape.

Eric Starkey has been keeping a list of AC Corsas for years. I know there is a list of 66 180hp Corsas I have heard of a separate list of 66 180HP converts I have never heard of an 'all 66 Corsa list'

Correct. Use both heads. The 62 and 63 Spyders used them without an issue. You will notice a slight power advantage due to the added compression.

My 64 Spyder convert has 63 Spyder heads on it. It runs great with the bump in compression. But both heads are 63. I would not mix the heads
