Bill Chellis, President of North Cascades Corvairs, sent this out yesterday after hearing about Dan Gurney's death. When once asked what his favorite car was, Dan was quoted to say: “ I wrestled with this question. But I’ll say (my favorite car is) the 1962 Corvair turbo convertible. That car was safe at any speed as far as I am concerned. It was a great car. I got mine through Bunkie K

File a flat surface so you can center punch. Heat the area so you can melt candle wax (paraffin) into the threads. Use Left Hand Thread drill to drill a hole for the bolt extractor you bought. If you don't have the extractor set, get one! With the heat and candle wax I've had broken bolts come out while drilling the hole... I use an electric heat gun - works great, no worry about fla

Steve, Check out this thread about a nifty erected cover that Nick found for his trailer. I'm sure you can find a way to construct a similar system for your trailer. A light-weight cover will move in the wind and surely damage the finish.

In the engine bay, locate the connector that holds the "Start" wire and the "12v Run" wire. They come from the engine harness and go thru the metal shroud down to the starter solenoid. The Start wire is usually Purple of a larger gauge. Unplug that connector. Now you can easily jump 12V + to the wire that goes down there and triggers the solenoid. If it works the starter without the "iss
