Thanks Ken. I appreciate your helping identify this trans. Hoping to use it in an auto-x car in the future. Next step is to work out rpm ranges for each gear though.

Picked up a late model transmission a couple of months back and finally opened it up to take a beek inside. This is the tooth count from the front of the car going back: 19 teeth 23 teeth 26 teeth 29 teeth Synchro blocking rings all look good, and gear lube looked good and clean with no grit. Will post pics shortly.

Yes, I was sad to hear that the event was cancelled as well. I typically do the two events hosted by CFC and SECC each year. This fall we had 9 entries, and we needed 12 to pay for the track. Getting the word out would have helped, but would likely not have brought any more Corvairs to the event. I know I could have brought out another half dozen non-Corvairs from work, but not knowing there w

WRT the parking break, why not use a servo operated parking break? Ford and Audi/VW use them. Seems like it would be easier.

Departing Orlando on 12 July in my Silverado with Travel Trailer in tow. Headed up I-95 to South Carolina, then I-26 to I-77 to spend a few nights with step-son in Christiansburg, VA. Then on to Washington, PA via I-77/I-79 to spend time with family in Canonsburg.

So, one of the first things I noticed was a lack of helmets. Not the smartest bunch of racers, not to mention the liability that Memphis raceway assumes.

Send it to me, and for a small fee ($20 + waste disposal fee of $15 + $20 for return postage) I will render it safe for use and you will have it back in 3 - 5 weeks.

Had to get a license when I moved to Florida in 2009. Waited in line for almost 2 hours, and was behind a woman who was trying to get her mother a license, and 'mom' couldn't speak a word of english. The whole time I'm thinking 'if she can't speak english, how is she going to read street signs?'. Fast forward to 2017, when I had to renew under the new, tighter issuance rules, and they wouldn't ac

So true, and the old A-6 compressor is probably 4X as heavy.

Mark, I have a 67 140 A/C bracket. Not sure the piece your looking for is part of it, but I’ll toss it in the truck anyway. Will send you a PM with my number.

I will have a truckload of A/C parts (Late Model) going to Helen, GA this weekend. Mostly the easier to find parts, but will have a complete pressure tested evaporator box with new TXV for R-134a, including the blower motor housing, etc. Also have some round outlets, but painted black. No condensers, center outlets or control panels though. You can PM me or email me at 65CrownV8#gmail.com with qu

I believe, back in the '80s, GM started installing Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS) in their fuel injected cars. Some were installed on the end of a standard speed-O cable, and fed through to the speed-O. They also had wires to feed the computer. I believe AutoMeter gauges have a very wide range of inputs that can drive there gauges, and will need to be calibrated when installed. Doesn't seem too diff

I don't get a lot of opportunities to drive her car, but on one occasion I did leave the parking brake engaged while trying to accelerate. The car didn't budge, but I didn't floor it either. Seat of the pants says it will hold up. Operation appears to be a servo rotating the piston against the rotor. Been crazy busy to do more than some on-line research.

Posted this on the V8 Registry forum, but since the topic came up here, I'll ask here as well. Has anyone explored the option of using an Electronic Parking Brake similar to what the late model Audi/VWs use? My wife's 2017 Ford Edge also has this feature, and every time I pull the jack out and go for the air tools, she makes sure I'mm not going for her Edge.

I'm in the same boat. I grew up in the mountains of Western PA and work has me living in Orlando, FL now. I've worked for NASA or the Navy (in one way or another) since was 18. Now looking at Eastern Tenn or Northern GA as a place to call home. Decision isn't firm yet, but we are looking for land.
