I wanted to go with what I think is the best bearing grease on the market. I used Amsoil high temperature AND high pressure bearing grease when I rebuilt my units. I still have not seen another high quality grease that offers both protective ingredients....

I purchased these blocks 30 plus years ago, cleaned them, placed them in clear plastic bags and stored them on shelves in house. All three are in excellent condition with no rust whatsoever on any stud ends. The three block numbers are T1018RL, T1209RL and T0212RL. The block number T1209RL has six rectangular brass plates screwed over the oil lifter openings. $150/firm per block. I can

Nothing in the GM chassis shop manual under solenoid rebuild about adding some grease to the solenoid or plunger until I found this. I guess a little dab will do ya!

Time to install the 1966 emergency brake cable that attaches to the rear wheels. Can either end attach to either wheel or is the cable specific to attach in one way only?

Years ago, someone manufactured some steel top cover caps for the turbo carburetors. They may have even been stainless. Has anyone seen these around? I would be interested in purchase of one. The chrome plating on the originals erode over time....

Picked up some Liquid Electrical Tape (black) in a can today at a NAPA parts store. It worked well to seal the cracks on the field coil assembly. This black liquid looks identical to black plastic dip in a can. Do you think both products are the same?

This field coil assembly is in very good condition other than a few small cracks in the coating as seen in the picture. Most found in used starters today have small cracks. OK to seal cracks with some black silicone sealant without any effect on its operation? Yea or Nea?

Upon disassembling the original AC Delco solenoid off a 1966 starter, I determined I could not flip the washer as mentioned in many previous posts. While at the Corvair Ranch yesterday, I was able to obtain two other washer units that "allow" you to flip the washer. My washer unit in the picture is the one to the left. It appears the shaft end is "punched' which does not allow reuse.

I have seen the 1965 and 1966 instruction sheet for the emergency brake warning light. The 1965 sheet confirms the light is still mounted under the dash, however, the 1966 sheet confirms you must drill a hole thru the dash in the area of the wiper switch (exact location given in sheet) for the correct mounting location. I never had a copy of the 1966 instruction sheet. I did see the NOS li

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

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?

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.....
