The lean drop method that GM suggested seems to work well. Adjust the idle speed using the idle speed adjustment of both carbs until you reach an idle speed 50 rpms higher than you want. Then adjust each carb mixture screw one at a time until each carb makes a 25 rpm slower idle speed and you achieve the desired idle speed. This gives a good idle and lower emissions and fuel economy.

The 1962 Assembly manual shows it being 15 degrees tilted down from a horizontal plane. I would assume that lates are the same as my 1965 is in the original position that it was placed from the factory and it appears to be at about a 15 degree angle.

Yes there was one and they are discontinued. Usually are found on top of the cylinders then discarded when no one knew what it was for.

Gas heaters are picky about the fuel pressure that supplies them. There is a regulator on factory equipped cars with a return line to the tank. I believe it is a fixed orfice regulator. Too much pressure and it will pour black smoke.

If one of the diodes fails it throws the unit electrically out of balance and will make a noise almost identical to a bearing. Unplug the alternator and start the car and see if the noise goes away. If it does, it is not a bearing.

Maybe if you are going to haul Reese Cups over the engine cover insulation may help.

Sealing the oil pan is not rocket science. The oil pan is the lowest point on the engine and almost all oil leaks end up dripping from the pan. I would look higher up the engine.

If you are going to make your Corvair into the newest technology then just go ahead and buy a 2018 car and get the best. I enjoy making the old stuff work and can do it quite well. You can re engineer the whole car to the new stuff but that defeats the purpose and erases the challenge. I get a greate sense of accomplishment when my Rampside starts up cold with a choke and the gas heater fires of

That's because it is not vinyl but Naugahyde. Naugahyde is much more durable than vinyl but is no longer legal to sell since you can no longer kill or harvest Naugas for their skin.
