How can the flywheel cause a "stutter"? How would 2 lbs of add'l weight "significantly" affect the acceleration? I'm thinkin' it's not the flywheel....

I was working on this 1961 Rampside and decided to remove the headlight mounting plate from the driver's side. I was surprised to see this behind that on the original primer: This Rampside is a Standard with code 740G entered in the Paint window of the Body Plate I've had other FC headlight assemblies removed before, but never really noticed this. So I looked at a 1962: Well,

Roger, Just was looking at JB Weld products. They have several types with varying ratings of tensile strength. The "usual" variety is around 2400 lbs but they have others that range into the 4000+ lbs rating. (don't recall the exact numbers...) Perhaps other types of epoxy adhesives are even higher.

I hope it was sitting by a curb without a driver. Kinda looks like it may have been side-swiped with the right front wheel against a curb. That wheel/tire is damaged even though it is well away from any moving impact. Seems the impact was a heavy glancing blow from the driver's cowl/A pillar back and into the B pillar/quarter panel. I'm guessing some idiot texting/talking instead of driving

Are you using "points ignition"? If so: Check that the points are in good condition and are making solid contact to ground when they close. Replace if needed. Replace the condenser. Set the points gap. Carefully check the rotor and the cap for good conductivity. Or replace them with new. Now check that you are getting a a solid spark from the coil output wire to ground whens the engine is

John, Mostly because the Corvair is a mostly unique GM car. With a few exceptions the Clark's Catalog has nothing that a typical OPG GM catalog has. Sure they can sell armrests, mirrors, LM brakes and wheels, but when it really comes down to it, the Corvair is unique. I would say that is why their long announced catalog keeps getting put off. They've got a lot of catching up to do.

Throttle Valve Shaft. As in the Powerglide Valve Body? If so, refer to section 6E-9 in the 1961 Corvair Shop Manual. No BFH is mentioned there! Corvanatics has the CSM online HERE You will see a full "exploded" view of the various valves and then Step 7 below that discusses the removal of the retaining pin and the TV shaft.

John, There is an "issue" with the PDF form. - When 5 vendor raffle tickets are selected and 20 is typed in the right column, the form adds another 20 below it in the quilt raffle! Folks - to e-mail this to the SDCC: Fill out the form, select "Print" and then change the printer selection to "Save as PDF" After this is done, you can then attach your completed PDF form in an e-mail and send i

Tom, Welcome to the Corvair Center Forum! Sorry to hear about your frustrating introduction to the Corvair adventure. Sure hope that the "third time is the charm" for you with that pesky oil leak. It's your new workout routine! B)- I've recently had an oil leak issue on my daily driver- coming from the power steering system. It appeared rather quickly and began to become annoying right away.

For the Spark plug holes - to retain the original heat transfer characteristics - as closely as possible. Better than putting steel in there in that regard.

Yes, more likely Terne Coating on the steel lines - a great anti-corrosion treatment overall. You guys would be so jealous looking under this baby. Here is a big accumulation of road grime sitting on top of the fuel filler tube area: It is mostly just sand and dust that falls apart easily. Here is the same area with a quick cleaning: In your world, that would probably be a mass

Frank, Problem is not the beefy hose end fitting - I had cut the rubber away already. That fitting is locked in place in the bracket that's welded to the side of the upper spring pocket. The fitting is locked with a clip, remember? Problem IS the delicate little 3/8 flare nut. I'm not interested in replacing the galvanized steel brake line - it is "desert fine" as is. I had to slice th

Whoever is the next owner - Read THIS PAGE on Kent Sullivan's CorvairKid website if you haven't already. It details the project and the later discovered "issues" with the original as delivered units. Also discusses the fixes to make the project finally work as it should.

Working on the second front brake hose - the first one was about as easy as you could expect a 57 year old Rampside. It is a desert truck for most of it's life, so deep rust is not an issue. I just added plenty of PB Blaster and heated up flare nut. Use a quality flare nut wrench and a few moments later it broke free. The wheel cylinder end was even easier since it has a big ol' 5/8 hex tha
