In my tens and 20's, I would have loved those Garvin flares. Now I prefer the original lines of the car.

The two and four carb engines used just 2 choke rods (the secondaries do not have chokes).

Well optioned care that looks nice, but I see a bit of rust in crucial areas for a convertible.

Nice to see them working hard at it.

That came out really well and works great with your black interior. It might not work with every color but definely does with the black.

I love old shops like that. Warner Robins has a place called Franklin Battery that actually recognized a Corvair starter when I brought them one. I like to support businesses like that. ihscomputers Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > By the way, the brake hoses were custom-made for me by E.L.Johnston Auto Parts in College Park, Georgia. > >

In a slightly off topic note, I have the new sensor (Vairtrix) that Clarks sells in my car now. It seems to work well. I just hope it has a long life.

Lifters came from California Corvair. As did the ISKY 270 cam.

I used a a feeler gauge as well, although it was .005” I think…thinnest I had. I do not have an oil pressure gauge, I just no the idiot light turns off while cranking, which granted, is not a lot of pressure.

I have my Corvair finally back to running condition. I cleaned the interior while it ran at 2500 RPM for 25 minutes to break in the new cam. Then a quick wash and I took it to the gas station and back (about 12 miles). After all of that, the lifters are still noisy. I went over the adjustment twice before running it. I went with 1/2 after zero lash. Should I have done 1 turn?

After the six center bolts, it just takes patience and careful prying. Those outer 12 bolts replaced the original rivets and mean someone upgraded the flywheel in the past.

I'd replace the brake shoes and all the brake springs on all for wheels.

Over the last couple of weeks, I have made a lot of progress when I get a spare moment. Engine now needs exhaust, fan, shrouds, carbs, and alternator attached. I primed the oil system with a stripped distributor and drill.

One nice thing about the engine cradles Dave Motohead makes is that when I needed to place my engine that was sitting upright on the bellhousing back on the cradle/jack, I stood the jack on its end with a wood block to raise it a little. Then I ran a bolt the that hole at the rear of the cradle into the hole in the skid plate/rear housing. After snugging up the bolt, it was easy to lay the jac

I'd fix it with the engine already out like that. You'll need an oil pan gasket, bell housing gasket, and front main seal. Also get thread sealant for those flywheel bolts.

I agree with Timothy. I also hear a slight blower bearing noise in the cold video.

Kevin, that thing sounds wicked! Reminds me of when I was passing through Dallas a few months ago. There was a guy in a new 911 GT3 that opened it up going under some overpasses. It was like music to my ears.

I was off last week so I finally had time to put my engine back together. When I was installing lifters, there were only 10 in the sealed plastic bag. Even though I placed my order in late July, Jeff sent me two lifters in the mail with no hassle. They should be hear tomorrow. Kudos to Jeff for exceptional customer service.

My heads, done by Tom Knoblauch, were 140 heads (not tribute heads).

I spent $2250. That included fixing a dropped seat, timeserting a few bolt holes, and improvements to the combustion chamber and to both intake and exhaust flow.

$2000 is a good starting figure. Depending on the condition of your heads and work you want done, it might be a little less or it could go higher.
