If not already mentioned, make sure your differential air vent is not plugged up. It needs to be able to "breathe" when temperatures change.

When looking at autobohnengines eBay ads, I noticed their photos are the same as I've seen on Phoenix CL. :) They must both use the same photographer, right? :)

I can't believe the yellow 64 Spyder sold today for over $18K! It looked no better than many daily drivers. It had very noticeable chipped and peeling paint on the hood and trunk in multiple places, dented trim all around, rust-pitted chrome, etc.

Front? Rear? I've had multiple Corvairs with e-pumps in the engine compartment. Never had an issue with them pulling fuel but the pressure (no pun intended) from other Corvair owners to move the pump up front is something you have to deal with. :) I'll put a new e-pump up front when switching from mechanical to electric but I won't relocate one if it is already in the engine compartment an

Evening Orchid 65 Corsa Turbo vert went for $16,500 today. Something odd about that one...gave me the feeling it was really a Monza but could be legit. I know the tags looked correct but there were things I saw that did not jive. Rampside and Red LM vert still inline for today. Those were by far the best two Vairs at the auction. Both from the same owner.

Since I have to accept all incoming calls on my mobile (work phone) I cannot use any blocking features for unrecognized numbers. I've been on the Do Not Call List forever. It's getting really old.

No but he should say that in the ad and then maybe he would get his asking price! :D This car burned long before that commercial came out. Here is Ed's thread from 2012 on CorvairForum.

This photo was included in an ad for a $10,000+ 63 Spyder on Craigslist. Now I feel foolish for paying big bucks for a nice center console with cup holders. This one does the same job and is free when you purchase 2-3 drinks at a drive-thru. I'll probably do a write-up soon showing the mods required to complete the install. :D

You can tell when all the collector car auctions are happening again in Phoenix by watching all the asking prices for cars on Craigslist jump. This 64 Monza has been listed for awhile at $5500 with no taker. Today it jumped to $7500. This is the car that forum member Bill Graham and myself helped Ed rebuild after a major engine fire on the day he bought it in LA and tried to drive it straight

One year too early for my bugeye. STI version was not available in the US in 2003.

They don't show the combustion chambers either. Why not? Far better to start with a set of regular cores if you need new heads built. Best leave these to a "Fly Corvair" airplane builder.

I have been happy with this Airtex pump I installed last fall. It tested at 4 psi on the workbench @ 13.6 volts. I am convinced it is not a clone but on Amazon you never know if the pump you get today will be the same as the pump you re-order tomorrow. Sometimes a low price is the best indicator of a cloned pump so don't go too cheap when searching unless you are buying from a trusted source.

This popped up on CL earlier today. Don't know the seller either. Never knew it was near me in Apache Junction. I don't do vans (yet). Looks like one Phil Dally would appreciate. :D

It's been seen here (or on CF) before but I don't recall anything about the owner.
