Can we sign up yet? No registration form found on the SDCC website. We got a room reserved long ago.

All I want to know is why a Corvair with only 69 miles needs a restoration. :D I have found several LM rear wheel bearings with little or no extra grease inside the housing area but never fresh-appearing grease in the bearings themselves. I usually find hard, caked remnants of grease. Cathy's 4-dr was purchased with the popular, but now discouraged, Zerk fitting mod already done. On a nic

That is the Otto adjustable fan belt pulley. It was used to give options for changing fan speeds. The photo is from my ad here on CC when I sold one back in 2015. I don't know if Clark's still sells them. I often see them for sale used here and on eBay.

I don't need them but since I have 2 LM Sport Sedans I am tempted to purchase them as spares. How much shipped to Gilbert AZ 85233?

Might not be your cup-o-tea but some of us here use aftermarket, adjustable C4 Corvette strut rods when it comes time to replace the strut rod bushings in our LM Vairs. While not a perfect drop-in solution, it's pretty darn close to it since you'll only need some extra hardware and 4 bushing washers. The install is reversible too. Here's one of many threads about them. These have been

Facebook is the best place to go when you want guesses and wrong answers instantly. :D Below is a typical FB request for help (Note: I added punctuation, capitalization and reasonable rules of grammar so it is readable by folks here). I need to know how to adjust the carbs on my Corvair but I don't want to go look it up myself. I need someone here to take time out of their day to explain

If it's been recently registered then it's going to be in the system and any reputable plan to get a new title is going to involve the state DMV attempting to contact the last owner on record to see if they have a legal claim to the car instead of you. That is the first step most states use to prevent someone devious from stealing a car and trying to get it titled in their name without the cu

Any engine needs to get hot enough regularly to boil away moisture and contaminants inside. Even with lower shrouds in place, people who only drive very short distances over and ov

I made a little more progress last night before the club meeting. Here's a few shots of the header tack strip and the end of one of the three rear trim sticks. The first and second photo are of the bare top frame folded into the well so you are seeing the bottom of the front header in those photos. I could not find anyone (including Clarks) that sells the exact size plastic replacement staple

A club member related last night at the club meeting how he took his gorgeous Spyder into his favorite Chevy dealer for an oil change (where he is well known and has bought many new Corvettes through the years). He provided the correct oil and filter and yet they still screwed up the job. Even in its day, most dealers treated the Corvair like a red-headed bastard step-child so why do you expe

Fellow club member Joe L. installed one about a month back in his 65 Corsa and he said it works great! We just did a long road trip to Tucson and back in 90+ heat and he did not report any issues with the gauge acting up or doing anything unexpected.

Update; It's been a busy few months with little time for Corvair work to say the least but I still want to get a top on this car so I can have some shade when I drive it in the summer. Believe it or not, it does sometimes rain in Phoenix too. Prep work had been significant for a new top. I've taken several hundred pics as the remnants were removed to document the measurements and process. I've

Not factory exact or in a rattle can but I like to use Zolatone "Silver Grey". I can buy it locally too. One quart does it for me. Waterproof and durable as well. I did a single coat here. How you spray it will modify the spatter pattern.
