That is a 1960 engine shroud, not A/C. The red lined area is where one would bolt the air inlet valve (ring) base. Crawford Rose

Craig, you're right! That was not correctly stated the way I typed it. I guess I could have been more artful by saying its authenticity is not likely in question. I do not doubt that its authentic because the box is ancient. It has a rubber imprint stamped part number instead of computer printing. Crawford

Bil, that box was printed before computer printers! I highly doubt its authenticity. The contents will either be old school or not. Usually period bearing needles are polished while more recent production have a ground finish. Crawford

Bill, its about $10 more I think. I bought the National bearings from Advance a few weeks ago and there was not that much difference provided you can find the NOS reasonably priced at any given time. As Corvette and a lot other applications use it, you never know. Anyway, the National are Chinese and the Timken are getting hard to find US made now also. There are a lot of US-made Timkens in GM b

I agree, Bill. You need to use a honed bearing of the same kind as you are planning to install or the comparison is flawed. You can buy NOS Hyatt bearings on ebay but they are a little pricier than the Timken M88048/88010 bearings.Search 7450984 hyatt or NDH for the set. Hyatt uses the same 88048 for the tapered bearings.

I’d say for $600 you can buy some machine time too. That’s a lot of 5/16-18 threaded inserts! Crawford Rose

I wanted to clue you into my solution. A playing card was cut to 1.69". As you can see the installed card identified a gap where the seat was not tight enough so I swapped a shim and brought down the installed height about .003" to meet to the dimension of 1.69". Using this method I identified four valves that I had incorrectly measured using the micrometer by itself. I would like to point ou

It is a total custom job so its a matter of preference. Headrest seats look funny in an early so I have tried to find alternatives. Check out Kirkey racing seats; they have vintage seat applications that I was researching last night. Crawford

You need to order the accelerator rod bushing kit and a new 1960 accelerator spring from Clark's; then get under the car and replace them. Its a PITA getting on your back under the car but if you take it in stages its manageable. Start with the pivot in the tunnel pan under the rear seat and then the pivot on the transmission. Its a good time to replace the accordian boots. Then, replace the acc

I received an order with the new Clark shock from UPS today. This is the oil shock for the early rear. Oddly there is no photo of it in the supplement. I wondered why they didn't have a photo of the shock and let's face it - its because its not particularly original looking. Its very inexpensive though and on the positive side, its hard to open (which is good on a Corvair shock). It is comparable

Regan, that's a neat idea. Do you subtract .125 from the total to arrive at 1.655? You did not show a mic result in the photo. Crawford

Does anyone use the various valve height measurement gauge tools to establish the shim selection? The shop manual method is not very precise. Is anyone using a particular brand of gauge? Crawford Rose

Lee, there is a pipe fitting in the 60 generator adaptor so its free for a switch. However, I would much rather send you a 60 fuel pump than see you go to all that trouble. Crawford Rose

What kind of performance does the Magnesium fan have with the 1.58 ratio pulley? Is it comparable? It seems that the Nash fan is performing under the curves of the mag fans due to the ratio differences until 4000 rpm. Crawford

You all may be right. Let's just agree that it is useful to discover whether there is a worn cam or other cause of a valve that is not opening when there is a known head gasket failure. Crawford Rose

Sorry about that Dan. I'm in New Orleans and would likely ship via UPS or FedEx Ground. Crawford

The gasket may fail due to the higher effective pressure when a valve does not open when the cam lobe does not lift the valve any longer. The compressed gases have to go somewhere. Crawford Rose

TexasYenkoDude sold me a rare 1969 (19W serial number) 140 PG tranny two years ago and I realize I'm not going to do anything with it. As I recall it has 70-80,000 miles. If anyone is interested in buying it, please send me a PM. I'm thinking $350 plus shipping via UPS. Includes a new vacuum modulator which I bought in case it needs one. Includes dipstick tube and the 140 governor with purple pa

Also, I learned that the head gasket failure can be a sign of cam lobe wear so check your cam while the head is off. Crawford Rose

Could leak gasoline so if you smell raw gas, that is another clue. I agree about chirping sounds being a telltale sign. Crawford Rose
