I read all Saginaw transmissions changed blocker rings in 64, that it wasn’t for identification. In fact, you can swap certain gears if you use the appropriate blocker ring. But gears as far as the original question, the first design 3840294 looks like the gear on these eBay ad with a 30 degree angle And The second design 3851508 has a 45 angle on the end of the gear that looks like a

I don’t know if Craig made one and I have no interest in that subject. Were there different gear ratios from 66-69? I know there are those who build single close and double close transmissions. Maybe Yenko folks know the part numbers.

Cut the rods and remove the assemblies. Sometimes you have cut off the cylinders. Crawford

Yes. Your observations are correct. This is shown on Craig Nicol’s excellent chart. Crawford

Would be interesting to put 64 trim on the foxcraft skirts.

Probably not, Greg. The late model differential internal carrier is wider than the early model one. That’s why folks like Ken Hand machine them down 1/4” to fit in early model diffs. I have wondered about whether the nut would make a difference and I think it would be better to remove them due to rattling around until they chipped or damaged the spider gears. Even if you remove the diff chunk to

Sometimes a new plug solves the problems caused by rust or poor fit.

It’s supposed to be blue. Maybe it faded.

Rex, that is not the correct regulator as the -635 double contact regulator is for the big, low cut-in generators numbered 1105135. The 1964 regulator is 1119305. Kind of hard to locate lately. Crawford

60-62 use thick 3/8” thick backing plate while 63-64 use 1/8” backing plate. Need spacer to make up the thickness. There are other differences, I.e. the bore diameters of the wheel bearing shields, which are also different. Crawford

There are two springs. The long one slides the seat back from extending. The short one latches the locking pawl.

I have not had that problem with my resleeved master cylinders with brass sleeves but I would note that seepage/leakage also happens with new cylinders using standard brake fluid.

Mr Moore is on the forum as JerryM. I wrote to him several times about his interest in making some more pans. There was not enough interest in making enough quantity to justify the expense of making a run. He has a vendor who would cast these for him. There would have to be a lot of interest. Put your money where your mouth is; you might have to buy five pans and find some friends to buy a few.

Was the pressure 10.2 or 11.5 at 4000 engine rpm? It’s unclear whether that is the same test from the way it’s written. Crawford

There is an outer bushing that you may be forgetting to install. It does not stick out once the pieces are in place. The Clark repro is two smaller rubber seals glued together. It’s is functionally the same as the original. Crawford

No, that is just an improvised part. All 62-64 are the same.

Jeff Williams has most of theee parts. Note: you only need 65 parts if you are using 65 heads with 1/4” bolts. If using 66 with 3/8” bolts you should use the 66 parts. Crawford

Those rubber mats with the color flecks are no longer available. Most go with black rubber mats which are hard but not impossible to find or the carpets that Clark’s sells. Clark’s has those original seat materials listed in the upholstery section. Crawford

Ha-ha! Mel, I find that your friendship is priceless, too! God bless us all, Corvair owners! Can you spare $5.95 for another Clark's grommet for the concours d'elegance? BTW, the car clearly isn't original... its a 1965 Corsa 140 with Air Conditioning! Not an option until 66. Nice valve dropping option with a 140 anyway. Think it has deepened seats? Crawford

I think that's a pretty good car with minor problems for $8000. I'm just getting started on my 65 Corsa and its going to be way above that cost to begin to look close to that good. I've got nearly that much in the body and it looks barely better than when I had it picked up. These Corvairs are all money pits (in case it matters to anyone). Crawford
