I am 1/2 time in Bethesda which is next door to P. Several guys in the area. Let us know when you will take a look and we can see who is around.

If you do go ahead with deep seats and rebuilt heads, you may as well switch to 95 HP heads. Much better combustion chamber design helping reduce pinging. Several threads here On using 95 heads.

I don’t object really, just find it odd. Not trying to make a thing. Looks like a really cool town and gathering. Hope to make it.

Website is pretty good, but a bit odd on an iPad. Weirdest thing is that the logo/t-shirt say “Salutes Our Military” in huge letters. That is very odd to me. Someone has a non-Corvair related agenda.

My Corvair buddy, Greg, and I went to look at a craigslist 65 Monza in southern Pennsylvania. Ad said the car had 10,000 orig miles but had been parked for some time and the engine was stuck. We did not believe. I should note I was born on July 17, 1965. So we got there and examine the car and it truly did look like a very low mileage example that had been inside for decades and outside fo

Ok, finished fitting bearings and measured the brand-new-from-Clarks TB20 camshaft. I measured lift on both intake and exhaust in a thoroughly inexpert manner and got the following: Intake: lift measured 0.302 (x1.57 = 0.474, x1.56 = 0.471) Cam card on Clark’s site says 0.300 or x1.57 = 0.470 Exhaust: lift measured 0.286 (x1.57 = 0.449, x1.56 = 0.0446) Cam card says 0.290 (1.57 = 0.

Bump of a favorite thread where Ken takes the time to make it clear, even for people like me. Any Singh groove turbo experience yet?

What about getting small ones with a flat projection and mount them below the bumper, leaving the normal bulbs in place? Just supplement the halogens.

Bob Helt’s book says the 260 is equivalent to the 304 cam, or the “889 cam + 1 step”. Should be a good stockish turbo cam if accurate.

I just bought a TB-20 and am cleaning a block. Hope to have an opinion by Summer. Cam is on the workbench if any simple measurements help. I just read that it is dumbed down, so that is exciting to know. Anyone running this cam now?

Why so much harping on younger people? Seriously, every old guy in history has said what you guys are saying about the previous generation. With their noses in their phones they are COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER PEOPLE. They are not anti social, just doing it differently. I submitted mine by PM as well. Darrin

Sounds like a plan. Keep us posted on how using remote hands works out.

One more here on the East Coast. I just retired from my day job and doing Corvair work in Catlett, Virginia. Just south of Manassas, VA. I will get set up formally this Spring, but just finished replacing a failed cam gear for our club President. Basically a full rebuild. There does seem to be demand. I am 54 and grew up with Corvairs in Minnesota I had my first Corvair at age 1

Thx for heads up. I just called and ordered one. Nice dude said the computer showed 16 in stock. I asked if he was certain and he said to put in an order and he will call if something is wrong. We shall see. Will update if they call and say it was an erroneous listing...or if the box arrives.

I put one on a 140 engine with no diodes or shims and didn’t even have to cuss much. It is small and easy to install. All good so far.

You will either love or hate that thing by the time you get home. Post a pic of the engine...a bit can be told from a pic but if alternator is good, try another VR?

Great work! I want to visit and that location is as good as any in the Midwest. I have to ask though, I do not see “Route 66” on the map anywhere near that location. I see 55. Is it smart to say it’s location wrong as we are promoting it? Maybe I need another map?
