It doesn’t have an oil pressure switch. I will say that the oil filter mount plate assembly is from a later model, since the previous owner decided to install a LM alternator to replace the generator. I was running it in idle for a good half an hour.

Got it! Thanks for the advice! Oh, and one last thing. The oil is leaking into the skid plate from the left side, you can barely see it when you look down through the engine compartment but the source of the oil is definitely not on the right side of the engine it’s from somewhere Center left of the engine. The exact where the oil exact hole where it’s leaking from is also one of the two l

Bought a Corvair and recently rebuilt carburettors, changed the oil, oil filter, oil pan and gasket, but now the car is leaking oil every time it runs. It is only leaking form one of the two small holes under (what I believe is) the motor mount. The oil keeps leaking from one of those holes. The car leaked pretty inconsistently (sometime not even at all) before I did any work on it, but now it

Hey, just wanted to say that the problem has been resolved. an experienced Mechanic I knew drove it for a few seconds and told me the carburetors are getting flooded too easily, and recommended a carb rebuild. He also said the time was off. I managed to drive all the way to the shop by just making sure I accelerate super SUPER slowly. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help.

It is NOT the exact moment I come to a halt .I come to a complete stop, wait for my turn to go at the stopsign, I press down on the accelerator, and the car will get a little power from the engine (enough to move about 2 feet) before completely cutting out. the wait at the intersection is only a few seconds, about 10 seconds (it's a stop sign intersection in a suburban area) The transm

Hello, Ive been having problems with my Corvair I bought last week, I've replaced the battery, installed new headlights, cleaned and fixed horn, and done some very minimal exterior and interior cleaning. The Corvair is 1960 pg model. the previous owner had installed a lm alternator, and an electric fuel pump. I checked the distributor and points, and it doesn't look original, but it

The metal disc must be touching something metal when it is not being pushed down. it did seem a little concave on one side. Should it be like that, or complexity flat?

I'll try this tomorrow, thank you for the suggestion I figured out the reason for the constant LH turn signal being on. The small wire that comes from the signal arm/lever and leads to the turn signal switch located further down the steering column does not respond to the signal arm. the signal-control-wire will move if I push it into each position manually (LH, RH, and no sign

Thank you so much, I'll see if the wires are sending any power, I don't suppose you know which fuse in the fuse box to check for the back up lights?

I was having problems with my the two horns on my car. When I press the wheel there is an abrupt and sudden low "Donk" sound that comes from the horns, but nothing else that follows. Ive tried putting degreaser on the connections where the wires plug into the horn terminal, but no dice. There's no messed up or rotted wires in the system, so I wanna believe its the horns themselves.

Hello, I'm a college student in socal I recently bought a nice cave car and am having trouble figuring out why some lights work and some don't. When I turn on the car, the turn signals (front light and back red tail light)used for turning left, automatically turn on and don't turn off, no matter how much I move the turn signal arm on the steering column. when I brake, the two

Hello!! I found a wonderful 1960 Corvair coup but needed some help estimating a floor pan repair. I live in California, if that helps at all. I understand floor pan repair and replacement can be very pricy, but I can’t seem to find any estimates online any where. If anyone has any knowledge as to the cost of replacing floor pans, any help would be appreciated, thank you for reading!! Here a
