I've got a Smith mini torch with a really small tip which I'm hoping will work. Steve

Thanks Crawford. Should it be silver soldered? It does not seem that standard electrical solder is used. Steve

I'm Looking for help rebuilding a generator. It has a frayed wire coming from one of the terminal studs that I need to replace. I have a new stud (inset) and I could simply attach a new wire to it, but what should I do about the lead from the field coil? Should I just cut this wire from the old stud - it looks to be just long enough to reach the new stud? What is the correct means to secure

I had the same problem with second gear of my '63 GB (the Firebrier) - rebuilt transmission and difficulty up shifting into second but not downshifting. But in my case the problem has diminished over time. I have suspected variations in the tolerances of replacement parts; if so; could be worse in some cases than others Steve

Yes, that is correct; I thought you were looking for the visors also. Steve

If you are looking for the 62-63 visor for a FC with a fawn interior, here's a repro that's a pretty good match; slips onto original bracket. 61's had the same design but a silver color. FCs with Deluxe trim had a white visor. However, 64-65 FCs has a visor with a different design. www.classicparts.com Steve

Andria, I don't want to take the lead on this, but I do have several GM engineering drawings for the boomerang arm. I can send the files if someone wants to use them. Steve

Not sure what you have, but maybe these images of early and late style linkages may be helpful. Steve

I'm reminded of a comment overheard sometime ago when my two boys were reaching driving age. Stated was the irony that households often give their kids the oldest vehicles to drive - the ones with the oldest (and often most limited) safety features. So for peace-of-mind I ended up having the kids drive the most recent vehicle purchases. But it was an entirely different world in the 1970s when I

An UltraVan is for sale in Marietta, OH. This is the same UV I had reported on in a previous thread. The contact phone number is 740-896-7031. Even though it has "265" written on a window, in the previous thread Owen had identified it as #283.

Has OPG actually had any Corvair parts custom reproduced or are they only offering parts are currently available? I didn't see any. Clark's has made significant investments in having parts reproduced, and so far I see no reason to purchase from OPG. Steve

Finally had a chance to show our two greenbriers together. It was a small local car show sponsored by one of the college fraternities, Alpha Sigma Phi, as a fund raiser for the Homes For Our Troops organization. Here's a nice shot of some of the guys from last year. This was the 3rd year the fraternity has sponsored the event. Participation has been growing each year and there were about

Hi Al, Thanks. The VIN and paint code show it to be '61, with some remnants, possibly, of the original turquoise paint. Did the owner indicate if a restoration was planned? Steve

Well, I've looked for correlations but cannot decipher the meaning of those ancient inscriptions. The 'R'correlates with Rampside, but that would seem too straightforward for GM's normally arcane coding systems. This seems to be a Dave Newell-level question. Has he been asked about it? Steve

My experience also - their's is, without doubt, one of the worst web pages I have ever tried to navigate, and like Bob I gave up. Not much of a sales incentive. Steve

Hi Dan, Why does a properly inserted stud need to be sealed and locked? It's my guess that JB Weld does not add to the integrity of the stud, and if there is a defect in the insertion of the stud, adding JB Weld is unlikely to prevent failure. Steve
