Couldn't help myself, just bought tickets online. (More like I just made a Donation to the IECC.... You are welcome!) I read parts of this thread a month ago.... Should I expect physical tickets, or an email with the information about the numbers? Alan Sheidler

I towed the Corsa a ton when I was autocrossing it. For a single tow, using a clamp-on setup like shown above is ok, but be very careful about selecting and tightening the attachments, or your bumper will take a beating. For more consistent use, I removed the front bumper (SCCA CP car) and had custom attachment points fabricated which used the front bumper mount holes, reinforced, of course

Funny, my recollection of the "6 = 8" outfit was for inline sixes. back in the 70's one of my buds had a 6 cylinder Ford product, and he boosted the performance considerably by doing some machine work and adding parts, all based on what the 6 = 8 guys recommended and sold. At that time, I inquired about parts for the Corsa, and was told that they only did straight sixes.

I am in Michigan too... But I have too many projects already! Hope this car finds a good home. On a positive note, at least the jet skis are on a trailer. Unless the tires are flat and uninflatable, no issues moving it.

That's the spirit! If you like the car, you will be happy in the long run that you put the effort into fixing the problem. There is something satisfying about accomplishing a repair and then cruising around in the renovated machine. Don't give up or get discouraged, there are plenty of sources for help. Corvairs are relatively easy to work on, with a few tricks and using mostl

A portion of the responsibilities an insurer normally take on is representing a client when a casualty loss occurs. The rules do vary by state, and in Michigan the "no fault" system we are stuck with stinks. In a more common "at fault" state, I would expect my insurer to not only make up a difference in payout, but to aggressively go after the insurer of the person who cau

Looks like a classic "flip" by someone trying to pull wool and make a few $ doing it.

A quick parallel to the subject: If you are on the road and have a flat, do you trust the jack to hold the car while you install the spare? If the jack itself is known to be good, then you still have to worry about the stability of the ground it sits on. In all of my cars I carry a 14" square of 3/4" plywood, which goes under the jack so as to form a stable surface for lifting.

A rotor that has too much lateral runout will push the pads too far apart during coast/driving. The brake on the other side of the car will then apply sooner, causing a pull with a quick application.

No one is going to exclaim regarding the ask for the Otto pan and valve covers for sale in Phoenix? $1000 is a big lot of cabbage! Alan (Mothballed '66 Corsa)

Very late to this thread. Looks Interesting, Awesome, etc! What kind of a range in the way of pressure are you anticipating to run at? From my old days experience, the 140 "X" intake could be problematic to keep sealed, as the little "J" bolts which hold them to the carbs aren't the strongest, and the attachment holes on the carbs can become distorted, and they c

That link and video were interrupted by a scam "Microsoft problem, don't close this window" warning screen. I won't go back to watch, happened less than a minute into the video.

As much as I fear this kind of thing (Having way more stuff than I remember ever owning, at least before I actually uncover it) my wife is far more concerned than I am. With two hospital events in the last two months (I am fine, thanks) the point is a valid one. The years creep by. Time to simplify, and to get the Corsa out of it's storage! That day will be one to document, no matter

The only cable failure I recall from many years back is one that broke right at the front end, where the ball was. I attributed it to a lack of pivoting in the fork of the clutch pedal lever. I noted that the arm swings in a shallow arc, effectively bending the cable at the ball every time the clutch pedal was used. Polished the ball, and the pocket it rode in, and greased both. No further

The question I have about 4-post lifts: Are they not all drive-on types? I have seen commercial versions which incorporated sliding center jacks underneath; those allow for additional lifting of the frame/body. But still, there has to be some significant areas underneath which would be difficult to access as a function of the 4-post's design. Ideally, a car-nut's shop would have

If you are ever inclined to remove and reinstall injectors on your own, they CAN be cleaned and made to work as new in most cases. And it is quite cost-effective when compared to sourcing new ones. I have used a company called WitchHunter Performance and been VERY happy with their service. Take a look at what they do for the fee. Turnaround from out to back has usually been a week or less.
