I will be getting ready to install a new gas tank on my 1966 turbo convertible restoration project. I heard last week that we may be faced with more ethanol added to gasoline in the near future. For this reason, now is the most opportune time for me to locate rubber fuel line that is ethanol resistant. I would also like the larger diameter hose that attaches the fuel filler pipe to the ga

Seth: I have completed a rebuild on the box some time ago but never made the proper 4 inch pounds adjustment at that time. The nut is now hard to turn (attempted to turn with large jaw pliers but jaws causing damage to nut) and I do not have a large crescent wrench to fit the nut....

Mark: I have used Dawn dishwashing liquid with much success. When the wife is away, I fill the kitchen sink with this liquid and very hot water and then let the belts soak for about an hour in the sink. When you pull them out, it is amazing to see how much dirt is in the water. You then rinse them several time with water to be sure all the soap is out of the belts. Then, hang them to

I stand corrected. According to the 1966 Corvair assembly manual, the correct torque listed in UPC4, B3 is 15-24 foot pounds for the bumper nut. The 35-55 foot pounds reading is for the lower shock absorber bolt.

The torque on this rubber bumper that attaches to the metal cone inside the coil spring is 35-55 foot pounds. How do I keep the bumper stationary without damaging it to apply this much torque to the bumper? All opinions appreciated..

I want to retain an original "use delco fluid" master cylinder cap on a master cylinder rebuild. I went ahead and glass beaded the inside and outside of the cap. I will probably use some of Eastwood's anodized gold paint on the outside of the cap. But what about the inside of the cap that will be subjected to the brake fluid? Any paint or otherwise coatings resistant to brake fluid? All s

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

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
