The other thing to note about the KH 5 lug adapters: They are bored for the larger hub centers of the late models. Four lug fit on 2-5/8 and the five-lug fit on 2.8" center. Crawford

65-66 does not have the moisture shield. This shield is only on the 62-64 style. Another notable difference is that the lid retainer is welded on the early and is retained with screws or bolts on the later ones. Crawford

Ha-ha! you guys... There is a lot of meat to hog out for adapting the 63-64 bearings to the earlier backing plate. It does work though. Crawford Rose

Wagon Master, that's not the right part. Clark's is out of stock on the retainer for 64. Crawford

Worm gears in the speedometer head likely are bad. Start looking for another speedometer as the repair parts are unobtainium. Crawford Rose

No head temp switch in a 1960 although they began casting a boss for these by June 1960 in anticipation of 1961 changeover. Crawford

There are two straight styles, the 1960 which is straight and the 1961 which is shaped like a cane. The 61 is chrome plated so its distinguished from 1960. Crawford Rose

That is a nonsensical response that they are relying on the print. Are they testing the harness? No, they are not stating that they are testing these to ensure the one-way current. Same problem as 2009. When you get this harness, test it and be prepared to flip the diode or return the whole thing. It is very discouraging to read that Clark's has no opinion that this $300 part is defective and

Does it start with the choke open? If as rich as you say, you should not need the choke to close to start the car. Are you setting the choke by eye or by the archaic notches on the choke housing? Unless it is cold, the butterfly should be open at least 3/16" to start and should be fully open in two minutes. Have you personally observed the choke open as the car warms up? Also, Did you put a

Yes, these are chromed. The only hardware not chromed on the YH is the 8-32 screw attaching the choke housing to the body and accelerator pump to the main casting. Every external link, plug and screw is supposed to be chrome plated. There is fairly shelf worn NOS 1963 YH now on ebay but not a good look at this particular part. Crawford

That one on the search is not the same as on the YH. Anyway, here are ones on original 66 (left) and 62 (right) carbs. Crawford

I have seen the link with the second hole on unmolested 1962 and 1966 carbs. I like them for the extra squirt leverage. Crawford

If your car isn't stock, it is impossible to say if your car even has a fuel filter. Electric fuel pumps sometimes have the filter adjacent in line. Another filter usually unnoticed is the sock on the in-tank pickup but some do not bother to inspect or replace when they replace or service the gas tank sender, if ever. Crawford

To use 189 on 60-61, you can obtain a bronze bushing at the hardware store to pick up the gap space. I found that a convenient way to use larger shoes on the 60-61 but going the other way, you have to use the smaller pin. Corvair Ranch had those in the past. Crawford

Wanted: Searching for a good air distributor case assembly for FC/Corvan/Rampside with gasoline heaters. Not the whole base, just the part in the cabin that attached to the blower fan outlet. See photo. Does not need to have thermostat, etc. See attached photo. PM with price, shipping estimate. Crawford Rose needpart

Always and never are not useful in this context. The problem is that it is inconvenient to replace the bushings twice if an NOS bushings craps out. However, I have never had that happen. Its not a big deal to try them out. Usually the 60 year old ones on the cars are still good, i.e., only cracked. The ones that I find are really destroyed are the body mount cushions. Those have to be replaced.

I had an early spyder too and I don't think there is anything unusual at play here from later production springs. First, its possible someone did maintenance and swapped sides. These are noticeably different in length and could cause your problem. It the springs are worn out in any event, either contact Jeff at California Corvair parts or Jeff at Corvair Ranch and get some good used springs. S

Ha-ha! its a fun one! It is yellow as I recall and begins at the starter solenoid in the main harness and runs from the rear to the front of the car where it meets the dash harness. It is ten feet long and did I say yellow? Times two yellow as it is bifurcated! Crawford

The only feature that is different is the oil shield. The size of the yoke and splines is identical among the posi and non-posi yokes. The shield however is flatter and not as deep.I bought some posi shields from Corvair Ranch a few years ago to make my own from NOS yokes. The posi yoke gets abused by the rocking gear. Crawford

I am not driving this car currently but the installation does not require changing control arm studs though we did change the axle studs for the increased thickness of the rotor. Each time you bleed the brakes you must remove the caliper unless you want to wipe up the mess. The bracket floats the caliper up-down and in-out. Master cylinder should be for disc brakes. Crawford

1960-1963 headlight switch plug is different from 1964. The 1964 headlight switch with not fit in the 1963 harness. You would have to obtain an early switch. Crawford
