He spent more time worrying about the spark plugs than I would have. I would have likely put all new ones in and called it good. Also, no matter what I saw with the scope, I would probably have taken the carbs and top shroud off and cleaned out the fins. (maybe that is a bigger issue with a turbo) The fins he showed pictures of looked pretty good though. I did like the kill switch he s

I enjoyed this video. Got a few pointers from it. The best thing though, I was thinking, wow! A Corvair with only one carburetor. Wouldn't that be nice! I would not however, call this guy a beginner. Maybe a Corvair beginner. I'm getting ready to start a 66 140hp that has been in storage for perhaps 30+ years. This was very timely. Enjoy the Corvair!

Well, I took a chance and stopped at my local locksmith and he cut me a key to fit the ignition. It was a gamble because I knew the key I had didn't work in anything but who knows if the door locks matched the ignition. Anyway, I had them cut a key to the code on the ignition and it works! Also works in both door handles! (now everyone here will know how to break into my Rampy when some

Sorry for picking up an old thread but working on my 61 Rampside and I don't think I have a key to fit the ignition and door locks. The ignition lock has "9431" on it. The key I was given doesn't turn the ignition switch nor the door locks. Anyone out there have a key to fit 9431? Also, how do you get the FC door handle apart to look at the lock cylinder? Thanks very mu

I was in the car business till I retired at the end of June 2022. Like Roger said, If the car is in-stock, you should not be paying over MSRP and should even be able to negotiate a discount. I sold Subarus for the last 7 years till I retired but still get my service done there. They are slowly starting to get inventory and they will negotiate on in-stock unsold cars. Many folks are still orde

I have a stud remover that works very slick for this operation. Take the coil off, Use the stud remover, (remove the stud) Slide the hangar up into place and line up the hole for the stud, double nut the stud and run it back in. (My stud remover will also install the stud) install the coil attach the muffler strap done(?) I like J.O's idea as well. Enjoy the Corvair!

That was certainly eye candy back in the day. It probably got me to spring for the 4bbl manifold. I was like 18 Y/O at the time. I bought a Holley 390 and tried to mount it up. I couldn't figure out the linkage situation so I sold the whole thing. Enjoy the Corvair!

Hi Dave. Yes, the sections that go over the rear axle and to the rear of the truck. Did you have the truck on a rotisserie to "tumble the box frame sections"? Thanks very much! Enjoy the Corvair!

I want to clean mine out BEFORE it gets terminal (like the one I'm working on for my customer). I'm not going to fix his. I don't have those skills. Enjoy the Corvair!

This is a question that may have been covered before but I could not find it. Background: I am working on a customer's rampside that has what I would call terminal rust in the frame rails over the rear axles and farther back. I am restoring a 61 rampside that from all investigations I've done so far my truck only has superficial rust (Floor and a couple of minor areas on the body

(1) Set of LM Corvair piston rings .020 over sized by Hastings (Made in USA) showed up on my doorstep today. I really don't use Summit Racing very often but they were the first to update their inventory with availability. Just got a call that my crank and block are ready! Now just waiting for the heads to be finished. Case closed. Enjoy the Corvair.

The DAY after I was scammed (didn't loose any money) it popped up on two auto parts sites I was monitoring that they could now supply the LM Corvair .020 piston rings. I placed an order with Summit Racing. According to my email today, they will be delivered tomorrow. I'll keep you posted. Enjoy the Corvair!

Wow! That's pretty Ken. I took the thing apart and cleaned it. Figured out there wasn't room for an additional washer unless I found two very thin ones. I bought a couple of thicker washers at the hardware store but they were too small. I ended up just replacing the roll pin and greasing everything. If this was my truck, I would send it to Ken for the treatment but this is a rus

Thank you both! For clarification, there is a roll pin at that location that I can tap out of there? (It looked like a pin, I just wasn't sure it would come out) The slop actually seems to be more coming from the next joint in where it sounds like Craig put a washer? Also, this one is missing the spring shown in the picture. Would you think I could get that spring locally? Thanks a

Yes, CORSA purchased the Corvair Forum from the San Diego Corvair Club last year. There is too much good information here and in the archives to let it fall into disrepair or simply go away. Enjoy the Corvair!

Wow! I was approached by the same guy Charrlyb (he needs to be bounced). I hadn't seen this topic. I responded and exchanged emails with the 3rd party. When I asked him for specific information about the part including part numbers and a photo. It's crickets. Ugh!!!! Enjoy the Corvair!
