I have a USPS and UPS account. When im out i stock up on free boxes at the post office, Print my own labels and drop the package off. But I will say when i was in Shipping and Receiving at the dealer we lost alot of money on free shipping. I too request USPS flat rate from Clarks, cheaper and faster. Mike

It depends, I run the Braille 15lb battery in the racer rated at 424cca, no problems starting hot or cold. But running headlights,electric fuel pump,FI, big stereo you might need bigger. Everything runs off the Battery,if your pulling 50 amps and you only have a 35 amp alt that batterys gonna go dead . What ever battery you decide a battery tender might be in order. Mike

If you Bump the rear suspension on a Late model it toes in under Jounce. Keep that in mind. During accell it toes in and under hard braking it toes out. So you want the front and rear under accell to be perfectly straight so you do not have any scrub which equals faster top speed. Mike

about 6 years ago I had a little sponsorship from Metal Improvement company,a division of Pratt and Whitney at the time. They took two of my broken Ring and Pinions and did a close examination.The Engineer told me they both broke at a stress riser. At first they offered to reverse engineer and build an R&P with better material but after looking at them he said the metal was as good as anything th

I dont trust the cam cards any more from what ive seen. This makes figuring out what you have easy. Just remember when you advance the cam the intake valve gets closer to the piston. Not a problem on most street motors. And yes i would advance the cam atleast 2 degrees. Mike

one more thing,once you do the 4 spyder conversion, you will break the Ring and Pinion before you see the spyder gears fail. Trust me I know Mike

Im just going by what i found racing a stock carrier with a healthy V8. I did crack a stock one that had been spot faced. I never had a problem with any others. The 4 spyder carrier even poorly set up is pretty stout unit. Ive taken apart some that i couldnt believe had run well for years. Bob Anderson actually sent Dave Edsingers back to me and told me he couldnt spot face it as it was thin

If its for a v8, i would not spot face for the cup washer, It can get thin there. If you clean it up you can still get the washer in there. Mike

Valve stem seal technology has changed alot since the Corvair motor was built. Modern seals are a one way valve. They let oil in when the valve is opening,and they keep the oil in when closing. The proper seal on the exhaust not only keeps the guide from wearing but also helps keep oil out of the combustion chamber during overlap which messes with the mixture. Why some racers block the oil to

The Fastest D Production racer ever used the Otto spring loaded adjuster, YS 005 with James Reeve. Gut the Alternator and use the Otto adjuster with the Gates or Dayco 3v560 belt.

I think its more like 10 million. Every time you go to a Corvair event everyone has them at the swap meet. The real question is how many Corvairs have been parted out plus how many heads/ motors were sold through the parts dept ?

The Trick thing to do is put a big car mainshaft in the Corvair/Crown trans case,then use one of Arches C5 to corvair trans adapters.You then get the Bullet Proof C5 Diffs and you retain the easy Crown shift set up.

The Crown will work as well with this bellhousing. The Crown adapter plate allows it.

If you drive it frequently get an NOS or good used cable,better yet make your own as the repops dont last very long from my experience. Mike

yes the saginaw will work. same four bolt pattern as the Muncie or borg warner. But the Crown transaxle uses a adapter plate for the bellhousing as its a Corvair saginaw. Mike
