A few belly shots. I didn't lift it all the way up due to high winds yesterday and the threat of rain. I found a hole in the trunk bottom but it is less than the size of a penny. The floorboards are great and not all jacked up by mechanics who sometimes miss the proper lift points. Even the area behind the rear tire below the battery box is solid. I'll pick up a new vacuum advance on the w

I found my first little anomaly tonight. There was a clear piece of hose on the vacuum advance and because the plastic was see-through, I could clearly see a nipple on the vacuum hose connector indicating a turbo pressure retard unit. Sure enough, it is marked "250" on the arm and it holds pressure too. I'll be swapping that out with an advance canister before I go for test drive later in the wee

Picked up a nice project vert last Friday. Looks like a legit LA built and Arizona raised 110, 4 speed Monza. Starts, runs and drives but I trailered it home to be safe. VIN, hidden VIN and body tag are all in agreement. Engine code and alternator code also properly several weeks ahead of the build date. Nothing special except a very solid Cypress Green Monza vert that few people owned or

Some people might not notice the first photo on your link is actually a video with a walk-around view and the engine running. Other than the little paint issues you show near the front bumper it looks quite nice. I don't see why you wouldn't get close to your asking price of just under $10K. I know you already have new tires on it but a set of white walls would really make it pop!

If it has been that way the entire life of the car I wouldn't worry too much at this point but you might want to space them out temporarily just to see if you notice a more solid feel when driving. When I replaced the missing cocktail shakers in a 66 Monza and also spaced the door wedges to touch properly, it definitely shook less when hitting things like pot holes and railroad tracks. I w

I look for small, independent installers here in Phoenix. They usually do NOT want to install in an old car and are happy to sell me just the glass if I have cash. This works for my Corvairs and more recently, an 87 B2000 windshield. The last batch of 5 I got for $100 each but that was 5-6 years ago.

If you find that the LEDs themselves are at fault I would not be surprised. That would be my guess, especially since you mention it is the white LEDs that are on more often because I assume you use them all the time as DRLs. When they flicker, can you tell if all white LEDs are flickering in unison or just some of them? I literally have a drawer full of PNP 1157 and 1156 LED light bulbs that w

Safe for your engine or safe for your health? I have no idea if you are planning a steetable car or just a track car but if you have a heater/defroster system still hooked up you need to be certain you aren't getting carbon monoxide into the interior of the car.

I know we all have to start somewhere but... I just read a thread where a Corvair owner set his torque wrench at 100 foot-pound to tighten up his leaky oil pan bolts. The manual said 100 inch-pound of course. He is now asking for recommendations for multiple thread repairs because I guess he did not realize he was stripping them one after the other. :(

This one from Daniels Chevrolet of Colorado Springs is on the Pikes Peak Cutaway Corvair. There are two small holes hidden behind it where maybe a different one was mounted before that?

Seeing the sight glass is not required to charge the system and if you use substitute refrigerants they often tell you to ignore the sight glass indicators anyway.

Our 65 4-dr came with a 66 condenser swap but the receiver/dryer is still in the rear like a 65. Can't say I've noticed any issues. I'm still running the Frigidaire boat anchor compressor too and I don't use an idle-up solenoid. for comparison, blue car photo is a mostly stock 65 4-dr with factory A/C. White car is our 65 4-dr with 66 condenser.

I'm sure it is a listing mistake. If it were a NOS oil pan, h2oless would certainly be asking way more than $50 for it.

They used the letter "I" to represent the number one when they were stamping. It confuses many people.

Not just California...Lawmakers in Arizona are trying to raise vehicle registration fees too. It sounds small but it would be about a 35% increase in part of the total fees to get tags renewed. They are quick to point out that it's an increase in registration fees, not a tax increase.

I don't have one on order but I would recommend that you demand a deep discount from the manufacturer (who I doubt will want them back for rework or scrap) and then pass the savings on to the customer to move them out quickly.

I got a 90 Honda wagon a few years back that the PO said always overheated and he was done trying to fix it after trying new fan, radiator, head work, etc. . I was buying a different car from him and he said I could have that one too for $100 just to get it out of his way. The head was off and I could see fresh green anti-freeze in the water jacket around the cylinders. What no one before me n
