Our Mid-Maryland club has now discussed the purchase of a custom made Corvair banner to bring to the convention. What are the average banner measurements? Any banner specifications required by Corsa? And, is any one cloth material better than another? All comments are welcome......

I have heard that the e brake bulb unit on a 1965 Corvair is mounted below the dash but on the 1966-69 Corvair a hole must be drilled thru the dash in the area of the light switch where it is then mounted. This would be per the NOS mounting instruction sheet that comes with the unit. Anyone familiar with this change?

Seth: There are two course thread holes on each side of the main steering shaft hole in the bottom of the hub which are 180 degrees from each other. Threaded into these holes are 2 round allen head bolts which are 3/4 inch in length. The round head is 1/4 inch in height and the threaded part is 1/2 inch in length. They are not long enough to be wheel/hub removal screws. I am unsure wha

I have a NOS late model magnesium fan I wish to have powder coated with 1000 degree heat coating. Should the fan be glass beaded prior to powder coating or just coated over as is. All opinions appreciated.....

In the hub, some original owners have two round allen head bolts attached on each side of the main steering wheel nut, and some do not. If these are necessary, what is their purpose?

To add to this subject, late model wiper housings have a yellow number sequence stamped on the housing. Any ideas on how to duplicate these yellow number stampings for the concours events?

Installed my shifter base to the body with the standard white upper seal and lower black seal. Slight lubrication on both per assembly manual page 7 B7. Unable to understand how to get the correct thickness measurement per page 7 B5. Currently, without the shims and the four lock nuts fully tight, the complete assembly moves back and forth in a smooth sliding motion. Jeff at the Corvair R

I have my late model starter completely dis-assembled. I will be glass beading the outside and inside area of the starter housing cylinder. Any negative effects if I paint the inner wall of the starter? The field coil assembly and pole shoes are then attached to the inner wall. This inner wall was fairly rusty when I tore it apart........

I will be installing the long heater cable on my Corsa within the next week. Since it is currently out of the car it should be easy to lube while holding it in a vertical position. What type of lube would last the longest? Graphite? Silicone spray? White grease in a spray can? All suggestions are appreciated.....

We have a club member that is looking to purchase a two spoke non-telescopic wood wheel for his newly purchased one owner 1966 Corsa 140 convertible. This would be the wheel that has the hub riveted to the wheel. He would prefer a non-cracked wood wheel but will consider a slightly cracked wood wheel as well........ needpart

Sorry, I have no available pics. She is a new member of our Corvair club. Please contact her if interested. She has no sources to restore this vehicle. Upon contact, she may be able to email photos. Definitely one to save.

I purchased complete new pre-bent brake line kit and new brass brake blocks from Clark's for my 66 Corsa restoration. The Permatex brake line thread sealant states when used, adjustments can be made up to 24 hours after application without damage to seal. Is this sealant needed for new lines? What happens if I need to seperate a brake line in the future? Would the seal area be damaged? All op

I purchased a reproduction set from Soft Seal. Unfortunately they did not fit right. Appears the grooves on the back of the pad may not be deep enough. When installed, the sides appear to be rippled outward. I did not want to use another reproduction with possibly the same results, hence, looking for NOS or slightly used original.......

I noticed Walmart now sells Rotella oil in a synthetic blend - both in 10W30 and 15W40. It is in a silver container and has the CI-4 designation on the back. I assume it still has the zinc additive needed for our valve tappet lubrication. I have been using the Rotella full synthetic 5W40 in the blue container for my turbo 180. Price difference is roughly about $10. All comments are welcome.

I don't believe the number on the bottom of the bottle (such as Chuck's early 66 with the #5 stamping) has anything to do with the model year. I have two bottles with #10 and #11 stampings on them. So far, it appears 1961 is the most popular year dated bottle. Keep that bottle information coming....

I think we are off topic here. Let's get your bottle date or number from the bottom of the bottle. Maybe we can then associate the model year to the date on the bottle...
