Right now, I am about 200 miles from him. But I would not entertain even thinking of buying that engine package with such limited information. Nob-running, unknown transaxle for starters.

Notice he doesn't say the tongue convertor and PG is matched to the 140. So it is probably a generic PG and convertor.

Why not call Seth and get one of his electronic distributors? Be fixed in less than a half hour, if budget allows the expense.

Here is the pros explanation of castor. A quote from the link. "Excessive positive caster increases low-speed steering effort and ride harshness or road shock. On the other hand, excessive negative caster reduces steering stability at higher speeds and may cause wander. It also reduces the ease with which the steering returns to center after turns."

Sorry, should use Brite light for search. Dang auto-correct. You have to open up each one to see what someone is saying about the bulbs.

My sister and husband went to Anderson SC. They have learned a large pine tree twisted off several feet above the the house roof height and crashed into the house. They have a destroyed house to come home to when roads become passable. Right now Onslow county is flooded with no roads passable to where they live. At least they have started the claims process as neighbors who stayed sent them p

EM, LM, or FC? Year? I would assume 68 or 69 car. Since they are the only ones with 4 way hazard warning lights.

How old are the tires would be another question that would come to mind. Belts can separate on older tires causing a shimmy effect.

Picked up the FC gas tank from Caveman Pete today. I have given up on the person who was all talk about trading an LS engine/tranny package for the van. Never heard a peep from him again. Work will continue on van after Mouse House 110 engine has been run. I will get windshield installed following our return home.

I stopped in to see Caveman Pete. Nice visit and also picked up some parts. One of the parts is a 95 hp head. So I have half the set I need. Engine will remain on the market until I start the conversion to a 95 hp engine.

Now I have the 140 engine, I need to rebuild some carbs for it. I have the carbs from the Hurricane 140 engine I got last year and subsequently dismantled. The questions are regarding jet size. What jet size is best for manual transmissions? AND What jet size is best for the Powerglide transmission? Just want to know for each, so when I am ready to build and close them up I hav

Matt: I don't think the deal will fall through. ENGINE is in the back of my truck. ggg It is going back to Georgia. It was too good of a deal to pass up. Something to play with while I work on my other engines.

29 Vairs were in the judging area and a couple others were seen outside. Judging was held at the Ray Skillman Classic Car Museum. That was interesting to walk through. A good time was had meeting new Vair people. Met a few people from the Corvair Center.

Contact Frank Duval. You need the ignition and doors to match. Also the glove box and trunk need to match. Otherwise you have 3 or more keys for the car. If you need the spare tire lock, it is keyed to the trunk. Frank can help you out get it correct. I sold him all my LM locks.

Before he removes the distributor, he should remove points plate. Then take a photo of what is under the points plate as exposed. It might explain a lot of the movement.

Put a 18" plastic wall around it to keep the little cruisers away. Use Cab Fresh also.

Where you located? Can you put up a Harbor Freight 17 foot soft garage on your land? If you can, make sure to lay a tarp down first to keep ground moisture away and put 2 x 8 runners on tarp for tires to run up on. Then put a 18" high solid plastic fence around it to keep mice away from it. I keep my 2 anchored down with dog chain, turn buckles and 18" ground anchors at all 4 corners. G

Your left side compression is 145, 135, 158. Sounds like something not right there, why the high number or why the low number. The 135 seems low. Just curious.
