Give it a shot of refrigerant and the AC should be good to go too.

As posted before, I'm looking for a pair of seat belt guides as shown in the attached picture from Phil Dally's car. These were used on EM's & LM's with straight (non-folding) bench front seats. I've been looking on eBay & have checked with Corvair Ranch but I have not found a set. Color not important as I can paint them. Thanks, Wade Lanning

As listed by others above, there should be screws at the front edge of the grille. As a minimum you'll need to remove the stainless trim at the bottom of the window. If the screws are visible, you can probably get them out and remove the grille with no problem. If the channel has been filled with sealant, it will be harder and could result in the window to leak. You may be better off to

Yes. By "4-door" I was including wagons since they have four doors also.

Can someone advise or post a picture to show how the slots are reinforced in the vinyl upholstery for 4-door bench seat inner seat belts. I presume they can be reinforced with a couple rows of thread sewn around the slots or extra vinyl can be sewn around the openings. Thanks, Wade Lanning

Okay, I now see two separate Ebay auctions for the van, one as a Ford and the other as a Chevrolet. One says 82k miles, the other has 89k miles. Current bids are at $3050 for the Chevrolet version and $1625 for the Ford version. Wade

As far as installing the trim back on the window, you'll need the rubber strip that goes into the slot on the trim. I tried to find it at a local glass shop, but they didn't have the correct thickness, so I got some from Clark's. I suggest pushing the rubber strip in the slot, then applying some soapy water on the rubber before pushing it back on the window. You can probably bum

I usually just pull on it from the top or bottom, but you may need to place a block of wood against the each and tap the wood with a hammer.

I'd like to find out if anyone has a recommendation for a cordless drill. 3/8" would suit my needs. I have a Dewalt 12 volt, but I'd like to find one that the batteries last longer and possibly has more torque. I see Harbor Freight has a 3/8" 12 volt lithium (#64370) for $65 and a 1/2" 20 volt lithium (#63381) for $85. Does anyone have any thoughts about either of the

Yes, its C763R. I have catalogs back to 2014 and its not listed, so it would be older than 2014. Wade

Does anyone have an old Clark's catalog that list p/n 763R? It's from a tag on a LM rear coil spring, but I'd like to find the application. Is it a stock repro? For coupe or convertible? HD or standard? Thanks. Wade Lanning

I'm looking for an EM front bench seat for a 4-door or wagon with good padding that I can pick up at the Helen Springfest this coming weekend. Upholstery style & condition not important, just need good padding for bottom cushion and backrest. Actually I don't need the seat frame either, but I'll have a truck so I could take a whole seat.

One thing you can do yourself that can possibly save money, but will result in a better paint job is to remove the trim and bumpers. Some shops won't remove them for their lower price paint jobs. Removing the trim around the front windshield and rear window would be the a good idea, but can be made easier with the special tool to release the clips. Everything else is held on with screws a

It believe the '62 convertible and '62 Spyder option were not available until after the '62 model production run started. Neither are listed in the '62 dealer brochure or the dealer showroom book. Does anyone happen to know off hand the answer to the following questions: 1. What year/month was the '62 convertible production started? I understand it was when the wago

I recently installed 195/75-14 Hankook whitewalls on my LM 4-door. Wheels are 14x7 Camaro. I was going to get 205/70-14 Hankook whitewalls, but I could no longer find them. I presume they were discontinued. If your wheels are 7" wide, I'd recommend at least a 195 cross section. Wade Lanning

A Lakewood is on the cover of Hemmings Classic Car magazine for May 2019. It's owned by Don Magas of PA. A large article about the car is inside. The car was in the People's Choice Show at CORSA convention in Pittsburgh. Wade Lanning

Maybe the attached picture will help. The mount on the left is from a '61 with AC. The mount on the right is an NOS non-AC mount. With both laying on the surface that bolts to the rear frame rail, the difference in the bolt location is 9/16". So the AC style moves the bolt 9/16" closer to the frame rail, at least for these two examples. Wade Lanning

Based on a previous tip on this forum, I bought a tube of cornhead grease from a local John Deere store. It was about $4 as I recall. One tube will last me a long time. Wade Lanning
