A couple of the pictures have the pistons completely distorted. Had no idea early forged were hard to find. The images may have been distorted when I resized them so they wouldn't fill up the entire screen. I can provide a link to the full si

Looking for both the piece that bolts onto the front of the engine where the downpipe intersects with the stock piece as well as the tube duct that comes off of it for my 66 corsa turbo project.

Factory Nash YH. It is a 1036. Same guy had a nash with dual YH's but I didn't get a good picture. Mine looks like it has the ported vacuum but the screw is pretty tight in there.

My car came with it already mounted. It is mounted at the far left of the dash above the parking brake. I'm planning to attach a parking brake warning light to it at some point. Sorry for the low res pic.

Is there any use or value for the non Corvair YH carburetors? I have a carb with casting number 1036, which seems to be for Nash's. Would be happy to sell if anyone is interested. Will get pictures tomorrow.

For sale is a set of forged pistons for early model Corvair engines. These came in a box with my car and I planned to use them in my LM build but they will not work, being the EM design. To the best of my knowledge, these are genuine forged EM pistons. The marked number L2156 indicates an EM piston, and all visual inspections point towards these pistons being forged( no casting marks, machining d

Has anyone here had experience with boring out turbo YH carbs? When I bought my corvair it came with 4 YH carbs. 2 of these are stock 180, one is labeled as 150, and the other is labeled as "bored out 180" Trying to decide if I should try to run this carb or just use a stock carb. Not looking to buy an aftermarket carb as this will be a mild turbo build. I took some measurements

I appreciate the recommendations but what I would really like to know is how the procedure itself works and what special tooling is required.

Ok, I'd like to do deep seats. Where can I buy the replacement deep seats? Is there any available resources on the actual procedure for the machining?

Hi Steve, I'm hoping to be able to do all the head work myself in the schools shop. Is this possible or do the corvair heads require specialized equipment/fixtures as compared to a normal v/8 or inline head?

If I can get my hands on a set of better heads for cheaper than it would cost to redo my stock heads I'll do that. Otherwise is there anything unique to corvair heads when it comes to installing the seats?

I recently bought my first Corvair, a 1966 Corsa Turbo! The car is in pretty decent shape and I really love it so far, especially since I got a great deal on it. The big problem is that although it runs and drives, it has a 110hp motor in it. I'm assuming the previous owner blew up the turbo motor and swapped this one in. It is a factory turbo car, according to the data plate. The ca
