It's only $.03 cents per mile electrically cheaper than gas.

Maybe it would be more practical to have the rebuild kits reproduced instead of the complete arm. The kits are almost non existent.

OPG has a listing for a sticker that goes on the alternator that says Delcotron. Is this legit and for all late models? I have never seen one and Clarks does not list this. Thoughts?

If you ever drive a 4 speed Corvair after driving a 3 speed you will never go back.

In many cases the existing shim will provide the proper clearance. Use the existing shim, adjust the backlash, then do a tooth pattern check and see what you get.

Depending on how much clearance the factory built in, it could cause undue stress on the diaphragm and rapid failure would result.

I purchased an original factory valance from GM when they were still available for less than 10 dollars. Still have it on my 65.

I am willing to bet that the cam is frozen to the block and you have much worse issues.

I agree and the people that get a rusted out vehicle running, clear coat over the rust and win a freaking trophy with it makes me sick too!

I went and could not find the Corvair group within the Speedway grounds.If they wanted exposure then they didn't get any Saturday. The overall attendance was WAY down as well as vendors and vehicles for sale. I have never seen such a sparse overall crowd.

When it slips is the steering wheel off center? It is almost impossible for the steering box to slip and not leave the steering WAY off center. You have described a shaft spline jumping a tooth but if your steering wheel is still centered, it is jumping back into the proper spline.

They are in for a rude awakening. As I quote from another vendor "Corvair people are the cheapest people in the world".

Appears considerably shorter which could cause stretching in lock turns.

Here is a picture of my 62 Rampside with the Clarks light duty rear springs. The front are the original issue springs.It has a slight positive camber versus the original severe positive camber that the original pickups had. It can still haul a big load.

All Dayton wheels are custom made to the specs that you give them. They do not all look like the one pictured. They can make them in the same design as the KH wheels. I have 14" custom made Daytons on my 65 and they don't leak air. I have a set of the Clarks repro wire wheels on my 62 and had to put tubes in all 5.

Most cars now are calling for 10,000 mile changes when using Synthetic oil. The oil monitor lamps usually illuminate at around 10,000 miles. Mobil is advertising that Mobil 1 will now go 20,000 miles. Originally they advertised it at 25,000 miles. All my customers with conventional oil we recommend 5,000 miles and 10,000 with synthetic.

I am not an expert on your vehicle but you are describing the traits of a bad EGR valve. If your vehicle is equipped with one I bet this is your problem.

It is usually caused by the swivel that connects the clutch cable to the cross shaft or the one that connects the cross shaft to the clutch pull rod. It gets a groove worn into it and when the clutch is depressed the swivel pops when it is pulled from an unworn area to the worn area. You can usually reverse the swivel and correct the issue.The sound transfers up the clutch cable and sounds as tho

If you have a head gasket leak of any size it needs to be addressed immediately. The hot combustion gasses etch away at the cylinder barrel contact area and will quickly destroy the cylinder leading to additional unneeded expense.
