A Corvair can be a good daily driver. It will require more frequent tinkering than a new car, but if you get it properly sorted and don't seek out the cheapest fix, it can be quite reliable. And Corvair engines aren't worn out after 50K miles. I've put over 100K on them before.

I can't remember what the back of the two look like, but does that mean a Corsa fuel gauge and temp gauge are the same unit?

It's been a while since I posted here on the house. Things are moving along, and should pick up pace soon. Electrical rough-in complete, AC/Heat system in, plumbing is 98% (gas tie-in to the water heaters and two drains need their vent pipes run), and video/sound/network wiring done. Security system guy needs to do his thing, then the house can be inspected so that insulation, drywall, and maso

Disconnet power from the coil if you crank it with plugs out. You do not want to risk ANY spark if gas is pushed out of the cylinders. I saw someone years ago pull the plugs on a Chevy V8, set them asside, then crank the engine to push fuel out of the full cylinders. There was a very nice blaze as a result.

If it is filled with gas but hasn't been run, a fresh oil change with new filter may be all you need.

Drive it with new wheels/tires to see if it settles some. How did the height look with the old wheels?

You need a 9/16" wrenck for the idler pulley. A "bent" wrench works best. You also need a wrench (or socket) for the belt guide on the top shroud. I think it is 3/8", but I'm not sure off the top og my head.

My first car, circa 1983. I think this pic was taken Nov-Dec 1983.

Any metal body panels, but people have to understand they are costly to reproduce.

I've seen it done, usually with the condensor mounted under the trunk.

My daily driver Mustang GT has an auto and I love it. Occasionally I miss the manual, but all I have to do is drive my Corvair or wife's Miata for a quick fix.

Nobody wanting to work on carburetors anymore reminded me of a shop I saw near Tinker AFB on Tuesday called "The Carburetor Shop". A quick Google search shows they are family-owned and have been here since 1967.

I always wondered why some states require the front plate and others do not. If the front plate solved a real problem, you'd think they would all require it. Pretty much all olders cars have provosions for a front plate, but newer cars option make the front plate look like an afterthought.

You probably need a new accelerator pump in that carb.

I drove mine to work yesterday. A gentleman in a Boxster S stopped me and loved the Corvair. He remembered them new and wished GM had never stopped.

Put tube through head and then install the o-ring. Also, you only want to do one cylinder at a time.

The trike probably belongs to Chris and Joan Law. One of the ramps (turquoise?) would be James and Lillian Law's. I'd guess the racecar might be Billy Bruce's autocrosser.
