WELCOME TO CCF ! ! ! Things kinda slow down around here after 8:00pm Pacific time, but you should get some good answers to your questions, as soon as the crowds return. Of the 7 Corvairs I have owned, none of them have been Forward Controls, so I really can't answer your question, but welcome aboard!

AH! That's the one that made the news. He was cited for an Unsecured Load, and Auto-Theft.. Only one strap, and no chains. The Uhaul was also reported as stolen, since it was several days late for return, and no phone call had been made.

I must concede, "No one can own just one" is better than have. The message is the same.

I totally love the saying. (no bias involved ) But not thrilled on the graphic. Never been a fan of water-colors. Maybe you should use an aerial photo of Joel's property. Just Kidding! Though he did have a pretty cool picture of a night-time shot of his tow-rig loaded with Corvairs a while back.

I hope I didn't come across wrong! My comments were not directed against the owner, or the car. It's Beautiful! The problem is the article is truly lacking in FACTS, and seems to be (as stated above, and becoming quite common on the net now-a-days) just a simple internet searched hack job, for a quick dollar.

Not counting the actual smog equipment, about the only real difference between the non-smog, and smog 140's was the fact that smog 140's used stainless steel exhaust tube to handle the extra heat generated by the Air Injection Reactor. The rest of the engine internals are the same. IF, you are concerned about it, just pop non-smog exhaust logs onto a smog 140, and you are good to go.

Chuck, what you are looking at is not the pulley diameter, but rather a disc that was installed to help prevent the belt from jumping out of the pulley. CreationBlue stated, "The alt has the correct fan for a reverse rota engine and a disk that helps to keep the belt on the alt (a prob on a reverse motor without it) all bought from Clarks."

Just adding a couple things here. I remember someone posting some time back regarding the way the fanbelt entered the Harmonic balancer, and the solution, or at least a "help" they used, was to machine a small radius on the edge of the outer most side of the V-groove. (the side away from the engine) The idea was that it would provide a smoother entry of the belt into the groove. . C

What is this "+ button" you speak of ? ? ? The only parts that look Corvair is the top edge around the rear-end. It resembles the back of an EM.

No apologies needed. If Clark's calls it that, then who am I to argue? It is just that neither I, nor anyone I know has ever called it a pinion shaft, and the Spider Gears have NEVER been called pinions in the circles I have run in.

It is quite possible that you wouldn't see any oil on the top-side. Mine was leaking SEVERELY! I would check to see if it IS your cooler seals (most likely) before worrying about the Pit Of Doom.
