Dug this one out today and hauled it home. My mom and dad drove it when I was a kid. Threw a rod in '85 or so and my dad parked it. Always meant to get around to it, but he did that with so many others as well.... It has sat by his garage for 33 years now. Gathered up 5 correct (as far as I believe) '64 FC rims. Had them powdercoated in a matching blue, and put new tires on. Today we p

Interesting thread and quite topical for me. I am trying to find stock wheels for a '64 Rampside. I looked over a dozen FC's and several dozen rims. These are FC's my dad owned. He did not care about stock - he cared about function. He typically swapped them out for 15 inch rims. So most are a mix. I did find at least one correct '64 rim with the band in matching color for each of the

Funny. I just unceremoniously tossed one out while cleaning at my dads. I have come across a number over the years with all the old cars I have had. And yes, I am too young to ever have used one earnestly. I think I have surely jabbed a unopened can or two and drained it for fun.

Looking good Phil. I cant say enough how happy I am it went to a good home. Several others were interested in it, but I think you laid claim 10 years agon when I got the car and you expressed interest. Anyway, found this at dads today. The 'Gem' let him express his wish to drive Corvairs til his end. Backstory for others - My dad passed away April 29th this year. He is the reason Im a s

Put a set of Otto valve covers on my Rampy. It's had an Otto Pan for several years. It of all then engines could use it. It never overheats, but I do pull at least a full 1000÷ lb load with it every week. Also got a new set off tires in to mount for another Rampy we are getting ready to put on the road....

Interesting ponder Phil. You saw most of my fleet. Robert has me beat for Corvairs. I have 8 that run and drive, 6 tagged and insured for daily use. I have the '48 and '50 Pontiacs too though that are tagged and insured and routinely driven.

I have done it, as Matt suggests. I used a butter knife with a bend at the end. Gentle and constant pressure, workring around. Odds of breakage are still high.

We had a great time meeting Phil and hanging out. Got the '66 500 moved to a good home. I had let my dad drive it a while and well he wasn't the kindest to it. My dad passed away in April and left a lot of Corvairs behind for us to sort. Glad this one is in good hands and one less for me to deal with. Here is Phil with my wife and kids. They all had fun. Phil next time you are out

Is it beyond absurd to try taking two regular ones, slicing an end off, cutting to correct length, and welding back together? Then you end up with the correct length.

I kinda always figured they were also regional a bit relating to snow amount. Here in the SW they seem somewhat uncommon in comparison .

Had another commitment that took us to Southern Colorado this weekend. Couldn't make it over to the Tri-State, but saw several nice Corvairs out driving to it.

Buick special is missing its hub cap already. My 62's stock hub caps would constantly fly off.

Desert willow! Overhang my old driveway. I cleaned all that out a few years ago. Skyler sat under it for a few weeks when we moved and the darn thing shed everywhere.

Far too many rebuilds are overhauls. Could be the reverse clutch piston seal was not replaced, or it was and didn't seat right or tore on install. They can be a pain. Worth checking the vavle body bolts first though.

Hey rnch.... Recently the end of the blue cap broke off in the fitting on my R134A converted el camino. Maybe the same thing might have happened? Tweezers and it backed out.

Try a can of starting fluid. I keep one with my two turbos in event of funniness. If not - pull the plugs and let them dry.

I have driven two for a while this way while I finished doing the front suspension. No ill effects I observed. I wasnt necessarily pushing them hard though.

> THE STIG has a 66 500 4 door 140 PG w/ factory A/C (or they used to anyways) We still have it in running condition. I gave it to my father for a few years. He just passed away so we will be looking to find it a home before long.

Light was getting low by the time I got a picture, but got my white '64 vert out and gave it a good wash. The other day it got a pair of CA Corvairs metal vacuum pull offs and a set of locks for the mag wheels.
