No one wrote up a procedure and parts list as there are too many variables what everyone says is the best way to go. My schematic is a full blown circuitry to do the following. 1. If oil pressure is lost, pumps shuts down. 2. If car is an accident, pumps shuts down. 3. 3 way switch on dash to allow manual selection of the pump when needed. ON - OnFF - Momentary.

GM engineers determined what should be in each location. So the location of the bulb must have determined size and CP of each bulb. Instrument lighting bulbs, excluding tach lighting. Each location is in open area of cluster, so heat created by the bulb is not an issue as it will dissipate quickly. So 1816 bulbs are good. They give you more lighting for those bad nights with lots of lighte

I had one hub from the LMs I scrapped that had a loose race following removal of the old race. I tried several races and could not find a tight fitting race. Hub had about 68k on it. I scrapped the hub and grabbed another one that was good.

I haven't got that one yet. But I constantly get the renewal email from a spoof of Norton's for $399. I know to look at the address details to ensure I am right. They are scammers also. Lots of scammers out there. Don't answer any emails as that is a way to get you into their scam system and get your details. Look at the details for the sender. The details info will t

I have a NOS hub in my bins. No races ever installed. Let me know, if this interest you. Always good to have a front hub (and a rear axle unit) built up and ready to use.

A couple of links for your reading pleasure. How Long Do Tires Last? Key point recommend replace tires at 6 years to replace. Warranties are gone at that point. At 10 years, major shops won't touch these tire except to replace. These shops are the ones who are concerned having liability, if something happens after they serviced the 10+ year old tire leaving it on the car. CAN TI

Tires sitting in the sun and also exposed to road chemicals will degrade the tires. I had perfect 1999 tires on the More Door, but lost 2 rear tires on the trip back to Savannah at 70 mph speed (about at 120 miles and 180 miles). Slower city speeds might have got a few more years out of them. I replaced them on the trip with two Sears 1995 tires of my coupe. THey lasted for 100 miles on ro

Tires Manufactured Since 2000 Since 2000, the week and year the tire was produced has been provided by the last four digits of the Tire Identification Number with the 2 digits being used to identify the week immediately preceding the 2 digits used to identify the year. Example of a tire manufactured since 2000 with the current Tire Identification Number format: example: DOT U2LL LMLR

Your car, use nuts you see acceptable. I have built both my front suspension. With 2 Clark's lock nuts on each strut. I like the safety aspect of the design. Don't have to do check of it periodically to ensure one of the standard style nuts have moved. And they will move sooner Or later when bushings do enough flexing. JMHO.

There should be 4 lock nuts, per parts manual. Having no lock nut on the inside of the rod may allow nut to back off and leave the strut rod loose during operation. lower control arm could then move backards under braking. Use all 4 lock nuts per GM design or put a jam nut on the inside to lock that thin nut in place.

I bought a Clark's Ultimate Pan C7228 a few years ago (bought 1/11/2016). Before I put on the engine early this year, I checked it out for warpage. None was found. I had also checked it out for warpage about 2 years ago when warpage was reported. It didn't have any. Nor were the bosses for the plug and sender off drilled. I stored this pan on its long edge for a few years

See if this antenna has same parts. It is for a rear antenna on an 65-66 Impala. Or this one for 65-66 Chevrolet rear antenna. Hope this helps to put it back together. Remember telescoping antenna not so good for FM reception. I have to find a fixed length that will thread onto a telescoping antenna mount to get my front mount working better.

You need to ask for cam lube. I used Schneider cam lube, which is a paste lube. Clark's sells it, if you can't find it locally. Only take 3 days to get it in USA typically. Find other tasks to do until you get it.

He said 4 words that had no bearing on the subject. No blast of me or any one, but only his opinion of his attitude to this subject. I can only say what he commented on BaT is not representative of graciousness to a forum member. His negative commenting and nit picking small changes on peoples cars that are up for sale is the issue. All used cars are sold "as is" with caveat &qu

So much for being an expert. You can't recognize FC oil fill tube location or the LM Shifter design. So based on your previous posts about GM engineering not doing things the right way (your way apparently), why do you own a Corvair. You would be less miserable if you bought one of those manufacturers classic. I think most would like it if you did and disappeared from these Corvair for

It is NOT your place to point out flaws in public on someone elses car. Unless they publicly asked you to do that. Corvairs owners will know the flaws. If you knew Jerry, then you would know the prode he has in his Corvairs. How many FCs have car engines in them? Who knows, but everybody can tell when it is an FC engine in an FC. Your pitiful picking the flaws is helpful to no one, but

Any one here into old radios and TVs? I have acquired a few tubes that might be useful/interesting. Post here, if you are? Also send me a PM if you want to see photo(s) of the tubes. They are quite large ones. About 1 1/2" across amd 3" long. Might be more, but I haven't gone throught the entire box I received.

Check out ralf's forum presence and his posts in the 13 years he has been registered. Hint 13 1/2 years and 57 posts. He has some ripping posts regarding the carbs and direct heating system.

A 23 ft RV trailer, 3 classic cars, 2 modern vehicles, 2 lawn mowers, a golf cart, a 4-wheeler, 2 1/2 acres of land with home, 2 large garages, 2 storage sheds and a container. Plus my wife Donna and our 17 year old puppy. All my time is filled up with tasks every day to even think of taking up a hobby. Donna t
