I still have a few and they are listed on EBAY under Corvair Thermostats. Make sure you order the correct ones for your year model. I have found that this is the easiest way to market them.

Interest and sales of the new Thermostats has really taken off in the last month to the point that I have ordered parts for additional units as well as applied for a patent on the design. There should be plenty of units available shortly for the foreseeable future. Thank you all for your interest and kind words about our new product. Not one complaint about the items so far.

I was talking about the picture OF THE PARTS MANUAL posted in an earlier post. Look at the script of the parts manual and you will see what I am talking about. It does not list a cover for the 65 & 66 Corsa 140 or turbo. Only 64 Turbo. No question the parts manual is wrong!

If you go by the picture of the parts manual, the 65 & 66 turbo and 140 didn't get one either. There are so many mistakes in the books it is unbelievable. There should be enough people out there that have 110s that can chime in as to their cars equipment.

The thermostats themselves are very inaccurate. They get weak and leak down and then the opening varies. Most are at least 50 years old and the reproductions are not as good as the originals were. Doing my research in designing the new thermostat system I found that on all the test cars I used the left side would usually open first but not by much. Even with the new bi Metallic ones the left side

The Clarks wheels adapters and knockoffs are identical to ones made by Dayton and should be available from them.

It's just like a car except the hanger is longer and the muffler is farther from the engine. The muffler is round with a strap and eye bolt.

Unless there is a problem, leave it alone. Lower studs rarely come out or strip out. Upper ones give the real problems.

There are many variables to your question. A stock Corvair engine runs hotter the faster you go, the harder it is pulling and how hot and humid it is at that time.

Let me explain the operation and address some of your concerns. First of all I made these items for my use but they worked so well I decided to offer them to others. I have been an ASE Master Technician for 46 years and worked for Chevrolet in all Technical capacities. I worked with Ecklers Automotive Group as Technical advisor and product designer for 6 years as well as owning and operating my o

I initially had manufactured 50 units of each early and late design. The sales have been pretty equal of each. After an initial surge of buyers it has slowed to a trickle. This being the case unless sales increase I will not be ordering any more inventory of these items. I still have a few of each design left so If you have thoughts of getting some I wouldn't delay as it is doubtful if a reo

Upper fan shroud has no crankcase vent hole. Probably a 1962 since it has automatic chokes.

The heat shields are no longer used. The new Thermostat has its own built in shield. There are two EBAY auctions as noted in the original post for early and late thermostats. The pictures are actually the late model parts. The earlies have longer rods. This was not some weekend project, it is a well engineered and tested system.

Two ways. The inherent design and calibration of the Spring and the original sheet metal screw on the side of the heater box hold it horizontal at fully open.Thank you for asking.

The Bi- metalic thermostat spring is super dependable. If it delaminates which I have never seen one do it will loose tension and allow the door to open under gravity or air force. If it should actually break then the door will open under gravity or air force since the tops of the air doors are heavier than the bottom. It is virtually impossible for the spring to just stop working. The choke ther

My original 1969 has the gap just to the left of the oil filter with a piece of black duct tape sealing the butted ends together. It does not overlap. Put the new seal {original factory one if you can find one} on the engine shrouds first then loosly install the perimeter retainers until you get the seal to fit without excess pulling and kinking in the corners.
