Thanks to Steve Goodman for the assist! Here is another pulley choice if your Corvair had factory A/C. This is the one-piece, cast, double-groove pulley #3795445 used on the lower HP engines that did not require a harmonic balancer. I saw this listed for 61-63 models in a GM parts book.

It's funny that whoever wrote that satire piece thinks the photo shows a baby on a dashboard. I guess they glossed over the lack of a steering wheel and other obvious details that would have toned down their comical jab.

I saw that long ago posted somewhere but like 10-15 years ago. It seems new to me today. Out of curiosity, I did a Google image search and found that photo posted on many other websites (like the Ottawa Humane Society) but it was because of the child receiving the dog, not because people noticed a Corvair in the background. Cool find!

So it seems in all threads past and present that no one can document an actual 140 A/C engine cover with the cold air exit on the left. Plenty of people with 95 or 110 engines and factory A/C have upgraded to 140 engines/heads and do you think they searched high and low for a rare 140 A/C shroud that needed a longer hose too or did they just cut two extra carb base notches in the cover they a

It was nice to meet you Leland! I was just the middleman on this local sale. The hitch is now boxed up and on the way to a forum member in Colorado who had sent me a PM asking if I could assist. Leland was only a few miles from my work so easy enough to help complete the sale.

I usually put mine at the tank outlet under the passenger side floor but have one LM with the pump inside the engine compartment in the left rear corner. It's been like that since I bought it and I left it like that. 10 years later and still going strong. Not sure with the e-pumps available today (made in China) that you would get that same results with an e-pump in the engine compartment.

I could not hear the audio very well on the youtube upload although I agree the symptoms describe a flywheel rivet issue. Is it possible to get better audio? Set the camera on the floor under the car and point it towards the clutch linkage. Even if it is a poorly lit video, we will probably be able to see the clutch linkage moving and maybe hear the noise better too being closer to the flywhee

Seems like the adapter maker should have recessed the holes further so you could use your existing length studs but I have never used anything over a 1" adapter so no experience there myself with the thicker version.

Don't know what size spacers you are running but in cases where I add an inch offset I leave the hubs and studs as they are and instead use an adapter like you would use to change the bolt pattern but sourced one that was a 5 x 4.75 to 5 x 4.75. No need to drill hubs and source studs. If you are spacing out less than one inch then that's not a solution for you.

We have many nights in Phoenix when the temps stay well above freezing but water puddles that are up off the ground (like on a tarp/car cover) and auto windshields are covered in frost in the morning. How can that be? Objects loose heat via thermal radiation to the sky and can end up cooler than the surrounding air. Night Sky Radiative Cooling is another name for it and could partially explain
