Does anyone have a photo of installed replacement defroster deflectors. These are the cardboard pieces that are stapled on to the plastic defroster. Clarks part number C3410. My old ones were gone so I need to know how they are oriented. Thanks

Well something has changed. One of our members in NVCC sent a pump to them in the last 60 days and they rebuilt it for him. I think it cost $120 for the rebuild. Contact them again.

Contact Jeff at the Corvair Ranch. I believe he has some for sale. There is also a company in Massachusetts that specializes in rebuilding fuel pumps and water pumps. Uses ethanol resistant parts. If you had an older unit that failed it may be worth getting rebuilt. Here is a link to the re-builder.

I Installed a FAST XR700 about six months ago in my 65 Turbo. I required some minor adjustment to make the shutter wheel line up. I had to sand down the underside of the rotor to make the optical shutter line up correctly.I also removed the condenser from the distributor to make room. Did you get model number 700-0226? It has the correct brackets for our cars. It has worked fine since insta

Is it possible to have too high oil pressure and could that cause oil leaks? What is considered normal cold and operating temperature oil pressure? Engine has a Pro Flo high volume oil pressure pump. Cold pressure is over 60 when cold and in the 30's when warm. 10W 30 Rotella oil. Thanks

Ok but does the long spring, not the short lever spring, have any impact on the locking mechanism? It appears to be just a helper spring for the track.

Is the long return spring on bucket seats necessary for operation of the seat adjustment?

Mike, I went through a search for rods several months ago.I contacted Black Hawk Engineering only to find out he is no longer making the rods due to personal issues. He was the source for Clarks. My friend Fred found out about a company that is the is the source for YH carbs used on early Corvettes. It is a small family run company in the Midwest that bought all the tooling from Carter. He

Yes I was using the original style long hex nuts. I think they are OK. Its the threads on the bolt that let go. I will stop using the anti-seize. On dry threads still torque to 70 Ft lbs? Thanks everyone.

After adjusting the camber on my 65 Corsa I was tightening one of the nuts when it stripped out. I was probably at 40 foot pounds when it went. No where near the suggested 70 foot pounds. The same thing happened to the other side several months ago. These appear to the original camber style bolts. The bolts were clean when removed and I used anti-seize on the threads. Is this a result of

I am considering Clarks Performance bushings for the rebuild on my 65 front end. Anyone have experience with these? Are they similar to Polyurethane bushings. Thanks

Suggest you put a little RTV on the outside of the seal to handle any slight irregularities in case bore. I replaced my seal 6 months ago and it is leaking around the outside of the seal. Also put several wraps of tape around your shifter shaft before installing to prevent any sharp edges from cutting the seal.

Thanks for the instructions Allan. Luckily I have experience taking the shifter apart. Took apart a 3spd last year to grease it for another club member. I still have the piece of pipe I used then. Parts from Ken ordered and shipped. Just when you think the list is getting shorter......

The shifter on my 63 Spyder is really sloppy. Particularly the 2-3 shift. It has to go really far to the right to hit third. I have checked the bushing and it appears to have been replaced. It is a white plastic bushing. From underneath everything seems in order. Replaced the shifter coupling with a new one but no change. It appears that the EM only has on bushing up by the shifter. No sec

The arrow is pointing to the pin that has come loose on the bracket. Looks like it was pressed in from the factory but is very loose not.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I was able to pick up a replacement voltage regulator locally and replace the old one. Brushes looked fine. Now have 14.2 volts from the alternator. Replacing the voltage regulator also fixed the issue I was having with my newly rebuilt turbo motor breaking down around 3,000 RPM. No more breaking down. $22.00 fix!

My 65 Corsa alternator is only putting out 12 volts not the typical 14. I guess it will need to be replaced soon. The PO converted to a internally regulated unit. What part number do I order from the local parts store?

Pull back both wheel cylinder cups on each wheel cylinder. They can be rusted and frozen at either end. One frozen cup can cause all kinds of strange braking symptoms. My 65 Corsa had new wheel cylinders installed by the PO and were rusted in two years. These cars need to be driven to prevent water from forming at the wheel cylinder and rusting the bores. Drive em and heat those brakes up!

Thanks for all the feedback. Even the schooling on double clutching. I adjusted the shifter stabilizer rod yesterday and no change. I will now try Steve57's suggestion to adjust the front tube support. I will report if these adjustments make a difference.
