It’s oddity has grown on me and it is so much fun I just dont care. I came close to buying a bug eye wagon in 02...could not convince my wife as it was to be the “family car’. She got a boring Lexus

I have one. First year is best in this case, 2004. Crass, powerful unrefined....the most fun daily driver I have been lucky to own. My 17 year old son WANTS this car. Closing in on 100k miles.

Thx for the info. I was hoping that someone could give me the specs based on a catalog/grind number, but seems unlikely after a week of putting it out there. Will have it measured at some point. To the shelf for now.

I thought this to be a custom blank rather than stock reground. In this pic you can see the “CWC” and then something ground off and covered with white paint two lobes lower in the pic (I ground off the white paint).

I have a good slightly used camshaft that I need to ID. I measured lift at roughly 270. Number P9170 stomped on gear end. Has “CWC” and “C2” between lobes. Looks like there was another number but has been ground off and then covered with white paint. Anyone recognize these numbers? Thx

Hi all, I need to replace the aluminum (Canadian production) ignition coil for my very stock maple leaf Corsa. This is a turbo car, so not sure if same coil for all 65s, but part number is "115200" clearly stamped on the coil as well as "CANADA". Also has (maybe a date?) code "5B8" stamped below "12 V". Please PM if you have one that you are ready to sell for immediate installation (I ha

You guys and gals are the best! Sort of taking inventory right now. If I don’t use them I will let you know Mark. Thank you, Darrin

Hi all, My buddy Greg and I bought out a parts hoard a few weeks ago and there was a set of new front and rear coil springs which look right for a Corvair (he had Mopars too), but the numbers, c5400 and C5401 are not current Clark's numbers. I called Clarks just now and they could not find the numbers. Just taking a shot here that maybe someone has an old Clarks part list or catalog that

Just a quick note to give this thread a wrap. I checked everything and everything seemed fine except for the fact that the stock starters were turning rather slowly so maybe my battery was not fully up to the task And making them work too hard on the newly rebuilt slightly tight engine. I did install the high torque starter and I bought a diode wire from Summit racing for about 20 bucks and in

Here is my current beater. Top stays down. Kids on my sons HS football team take pics every time they see her. Nobody has queried on the rust holes on a sunny day. Really fun car. 110 4 speed. Teaching my son to drive in this one as it needs a pilot bushing so why not a clutch dis c as well? Fun.

Well, maybe we will be able to 3D print as many RR blocks with whatever date codes we want in just a few years (the 3D printer dudes will definitely have to do Corvette parts first :)).

Dave, I am still interested in one or two engine stands if you go back to that one. Thanks.

I am pretty sure these are the base belts, so I have seen red and black so far. Dave, I will send my son, Morgan Freeman, up to pick them up from your Morgan!

Not a smart guy, but I have a Canadian turbo Corsa with the same belts in red. So they are Canadian. There was a Canadian deluxe belt option as well that is pretty rare. Bob Slusher gave me a chrome insert for the Canadian option since he is a nice guy and I have a Canuck Corsa. Will post a pic if I can find it. I would be all over these for my coupe if they were red.

No tach on this Monza and different engine than removed, but my impression is that takeoff is around 400-600 RPM higher than standard TC....but that is just a guess. Clark's claims a bit more. I can clearly state that it is not extreme and a nice addition to a 140 PG, but did not change my life or turn the MoreDoor Airvair into a rocket. Another very good upgrade from Clarks.

Thx for the feedback on others in use. The torque converter looked perfect. Will confirm that. I like the converter in action.

Thanks for the questions and vote of confidence, but, I do still screw things up all the time despite (or maybe because of) a lifetime of Corvairing! But, in this case, I am confident that I used correct LM flex plate (with no cracks) installed correctly. Of course all installed now so would have to pull things apart to check out of round on the ring gear. I have a Clark's high torque s

Not a high compression engine. Has NOS 140 heads that were lightly ported and all clearances (bearings etc) are in spec. Timing set at factory spec. Thx

Hi all, I just got off the phone with Clarks, but their techs were busy so they said to call back later. Will try here. Has anyone installed one of these? I did on a fresh 140 engine with a good transaxle that had no issues with a stock torque convertor. With the high stall and the new engine, I now broke my second starter nose. First one that broke was working fine on old engi

Shake that C pillar a bit. You may have a convertible with a little effort!
