I recently bought a set of these as recommended by Ken. I am currently using the Clarks shoes and getting horrible brake fade (downright scary!) going downhill. I called Ken asking about a disc brake conversion...he said just get these. I have not had time to install them yet but once I do I will report back. Looking at them in the box they appear to be a much more aggressive compound

Neat! I didn't think you could legally keep a car long enough in Japan for it to need service. :D

Great pics. I see in the back yard various Sonnets and others sitting there. Tim I know you share my affinity for Swedish steel.

Dan...you beat me to it! Yes check out Serpent Express. Larry Johnson is the owner/operator and they are out of Utah. I built mine on my open trailer myself but you can buy them already built from Serpent Express. He can custom make the cover to whatever height you want/need.

Weekend bump...somebody needs these. Make me an offer! Ken will repair #3 if desired for a small fee and verify clearances, but things are pretty much new so should be good to go!

ForSale - 1964 Turbo cylinder heads - Done by Ken Hand - Less than 600 miles on them. These heads were the original heads on my '64 Spyder. Ken did them for me (all the work is outlined below) and I used them for about 600 miles then removed them and decided to go with closed chamber heads. The work Ken did is outlined in the invoice in the next post. It included a comprehensive prep of

Anyone else thinking that perhaps OPGI is buying out Clarks? I mean the owners of Clarks are retirement age and it would make sense. Maybe the deal is taking longer to negotiate than OPGI anticipated. Doesn't seem to make sense for OPGI to jump into Corvairs when the market is pretty saturated and the customer base is slowly declining already. Just speculating.

We have discussed this before here... IIRC only 1960 locking gas cap had the bow tie on it. After that it was smooth but GM kept using the bow tie photo in the accessories catalog rather than updating it.

When I did my engine I put the case halves together and measured the cam journals with a bore gauge to verify roundness, as well as measured at 4 different locations on each bore with four strips of plastigauge to look for differences. Mine did have some differences ranging from 0.0018" to 0.002". I think the acceptable max clearance is 0.002". Remember the cam is really riding on a film of oi

On a fully welded together unibody (Corvair) there's not much difference between the two.

Bill my donor car for my restoration was a 64 Monza convertible and it was totally rust free including the suspension. The suspension on this car had the same tag on it. Being rust free it was a clean piece and showed no stamp or labeling on it. If I recall correctly it was on the driver's side bolt for the a-arm rubber bumper. I posted about the tag here on the forum but got no real answer.

Clarkson makes the show, always has, always will. Love his brash crazy comments, which should be taken a face value only.

He does! I had him rebuild an NOS speaker and also bought a restored radio from him for my '64 Spyder. Beautiful work, fair pricing.

Personally I would not re-use springs that have been subject to 50+ years of sagging.
