I am also suspicious. I noticed a "110" engine lid and a "140" engine with headers. Lots of missing trim. Maybe weight savings for the drag strip. The term "virgin" has been so thoroughly abused it doesn't have much meaning anymore. Still the sum of the parts makes it worth a look. Particularly for someone on the east coast. I'll be following.

My count has been decreased due to moving two years ago. I am down to to five complete spare engines. A 1966 "110", three turbos, and only one "140". I need to up my game.

I set the cam in a half block and measured deflection on all four journals and the worst one was inside rear which showed a maximum of a slight bit more than one thousandth. Although I would have preferred zero, it seems that I had an exaggerated memory of the problem. The cam gear was the culprit in this instance. Is that amount of deflection going to cause any problems with the build? I am goin

Yes, I use the mallet during torqueing procedure. Yes the cam by itself will not spin. And yes,it did get a new gear installed (not by me). I suspected the gear and removed it. I will see if I can set it up and get a measurement of the deflection during rotation. It will be a day or two. Thanks for the responses.

I have had an Otto OT20 in my possession for about 15 years. I removed it from a running car back then. I recently tried to install it only to find that upon torquing the block it locks up the rotating assembly. I have verified that the crank is fine. I guess at sometime during my ownership it received a knock. There is no visible damage that I can see. So the question to the engine specialists i

I have had this Sport Wheel on the shelf for too long. It's time for a new home. This wheel is in excellent condition with no cracks and no repairs. The horn contacts are present and appear to be in good condition. It will need a signal cancel cam. The 1966 horn button is a reproduction I picked up several years ago. I can send pictures by text or email. Or look at the listing on F

One pair of factory quick arms from a 1966 Corsa. They are in excellent condition. They were media blasted and painted with POR-15. They are $550 with shipping CONUS included for Corvair Center folks. I can text pics or email if interested. Or see pics on FB in Corvair Trader. Thanks

On a Corvair engine in good condition you really want readings in the 140+ range + or - 10 points. That being said, did you also do a leak down test? That will help pinpoint where the leaks are from. Has the engine been running already, or was this after a long dormancy? Even with those numbers it should still run. I have seen worse on cars that are daily drivers. All of this is relevant i

Hi Joe, about five years ago when I was still in Union County N.C. I made the mistake of registering one of my Corvairs as an antique. That set off the property tax office and my property tax was reassessed to 4x DMV value. I dropped the antique tag and the next year the value was back to normal. I won't use special tags in N.C. again. Maybe your county is doing the same thing now.

The quick box and arms for sale on Corvair Trader are mine. The price was reduced to $1300 to reflect verified recent sale prices of the items separately. Thanks to azdave for the link.

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.
