It looks like Jim is letting his phones predictive text decide what to say in his ads. It is making for some gibberish that is giving me a chuckle.

I also favor the Crane (now Fast) XR700. I have put them on more than a dozen engines in the last 10 years and had no failures.

I also store my engines on their bell housings, after draining the oil. I have heavy duty shelving and I set the lowest shelf high enough to clear the engines. I get 5 to fit under out of the way.

After a quick look around I found a very nice 1966 Corsa turbo convert. On Craigslist in Indianapolis for $10,000.00 with tele column and power top. That one is priced right. The one at the top of this thread is way ahead of the curve. Sorry

Dave, If you have no luck locally, Steve Morton on Corvair Trader is parting out a 1964 convertible in Nampa, Idaho. It looks to be an 8 hour drive. Maybe a last resort?!?

If memory serves the shield had several fingers at 90 degrees that were used to attach to pushrod tubes. That may be what the clamps are there for.

That sounds like the heat deflector that Richard Finch showed how to make in "How to keep your Corvair alive". I have only seen them twice in 40+ years of wrenching on Corvairs.

There is a listing on St. Cloud, Minn. Craigslist for aftermarket Corvair sheet metal. This is clearly NOS based on my understanding that there was not any aftermarket complete panels produced for Corvairs. If I am wrong Please correct me. At any rate you Minnesota guys should have a look. Prices are Right! I will let the mods add the link. Good hunting.

Those look to me to be from a mid 1980's Buick front wheel drive that has had spinners adapted. There is probably an emblem hiding behind.

Greg, the one bit of info that you should be aware of is the rear X member is a milder gauge steel that will deform if you don't source or make a removable internal support for the unit before pressing in the new bushing. I made mine from schedule 80 cast pipe cut to fit. It worked well.

My vote is gonna be for complete carpet replacement in a Corsa. Six hours on your knees or on your side in the car. I would rather do three gas tanks. My two cents.

That doesn't look like tinted glass. Was that an option delete for A/C? And there is too much rust for the West Coast guys. If it was a thousand miles closer I would look.

I wish he hadn't done that to such a nice, rust free body. East coast van lovers are gonna be upset. I know I am.

Hard to believe that was a thing for a couple of minutes in the early 1980's. I always suspected those types of cars were built by limousine builders in their off time using left over parts. At least the "Coach built" Clenet was interesting to look at.

It appears to me while looking around that for some unknown reason the threaded ball joints are easier to find. And I already have three pairs I picked up somewhere long ago.

I'm sure this has come up before and I searched the archives but found no answer. Clarks catalog indicates that threaded ball joints were only used for 1960 cars. My question for the Guru's is can the threaded ball joints be installed into late model lower control arms simply with minimal adaptation.

Before you run it anymore, you should pull the distributor and use a drill to bring up the oil pressure. cut an old flat blade screwdriver. 15 minutes as you rotate the engine 90 degrees at a time with a wrench. Then start it and see what it sounds like.

Clarks has rear quarter patch panels that extend up past the lower body line and include part of the exterior wheel opening. If you also need part of the wheelhouse you will have to go with a used part. There are several Corvair salvage yards that will have what you need. Your location will be needed to allow members to make suggestions on who to contact. If you happen to be in the North Car

We arrived a short time ago after driving thru heavy rain from Charlotte. It is a cloudless blue sky and should be nice all weekend. This is our favorite meet.

After seeing this thread I went out and checked. The LA build A/C Corsa I have is also a right side fresh air hose car.

Every Corvair owner should keep some "Shelf Candy" for personal satisfaction. If you don't use it you will still have it. Oil coolers get dirty right away.Clean a used one. My two cents.

John, I don,t know if it would be worth your time to drive up to the Charlotte area, but I have a 1964 4 spd.transaxle with a broken t/o bearing collar that came out of a driving car. It is yours if you want it. I also have a p/g transaxle that came from a 1964 Greenbrier. Not the same as a car but might be useful for parts. You are welcome to either or both. PM me. Rod Kennen

Based on the pictures the one on top appears to be an early and the one on bottom looks like a late model front shock. So it is like a lottery. Whatever is in the sealed box will determine the winner. Good luck to all.

I recently used clear Gorilla glue for the same repair. It worked well. My two cents
