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

Camaro seats that have deluxe interior use a different seat bun than standard interior. Camaro seats with standard interior use the same seat buns as a Corvair.

He raced it on and off after he bought it in 1991. He popped a motor a few years later and it just sat in his collection. The car now resides in Miami.

I had a 140hp compressor mount that was setup for a smog pump as well. It was factory made. It would not have been fun to work on. I sold it to someone here on CC

I helped 'clear up' Joe Burche's place. As Bob said, close to 500 cars, the helicopter- training helicopter, the dune buggy, etc, etc, etc. It was just off of NW Highway on California Crossing. There was supposed to be a big industrial complex going there. I drove by a few years ago again. Most of the land is still vacant with a Wataburger or Jack in the Box on the back corner

I still use the alumn Schaefer flywheels in the race car. They are getting harder to find. The early types are easier to find than the lates. You can use an early in a late if you shim out the pressure plate.

This is the last of my rebuilt 66 quick steering boxes I am going to sell. This box has new bushings hones to fit. NOS balls, NOS bearings, a NOS Pitman Gear and new seals and lube. There is a very minor bit of pitting on one tooth of the ball nut way off on one end as seen in one photo. The box turns nice and smooth lock to lock and has a nice tight 'high spot'. I have NO GM quick
