You are the MAN! I am always amazed (and inspired) by your work, Richard. Makes me think that I should start using my beer cans for more than just expanding my gut!

Yes, a 1964 bellhousing is needed. I forgot that they are basically LM engines in EM clothing. I think any manual bellhousing from 1964 - 1969 will work but I'm not entirely sure about that.

Since deciding to go back to a 4-speed, I've been digging through my spare parts and I've found that I have most of the stuff to go back. Unfortunately I was forced to sell off most of my Corvair stuff by a former landlord and I am missing a few key components. The stuff I need is mostly little things that I will likely order from Clark's, but there are a few big things that I need that I would r

Well, it looks like we are going 4 speed. I have sourced a manual transaxle from a forum member. I want to thank everyone for all of their advice. I really appreciate all of the positive input. You guys rock!

That's a damn good point! Clark's has used '64 diffs for $90. They don't have any in stock. Anyone have a spare 1964 PG differential? I can keep the car a PG for now and look for a 4 speed donor later. I would really just like to get the car going again.

A while back I posted about finding ATF in my differential. I figured since the powerpack was out of the car, it was a good time to reseal the diff and PG. I had a chance to open up the diff last night and while the gears looked like they were wearing normally, the pinion gear was loose on the shaft. As far as I know, that spells a complete failure in the near future. So, if I'm correct that the

My crappy mechanical fuel pump may have cost me an engine by leaking into the crankcase. Time will tell. If by some miracle my engine isn't toast, it will never get a stock fuel pump again!

I am ditching the factory mechanical fuel pump in favor of an electric one. Is there any reason for the pushrod and spring to be left in place under the delete plug? I would assume that they can be removed along with the mechanical pump, but I would rather ask before assuming.

Thanks Dean! Man, that car was sharp back in the day. I plan on having it back on the road by my birthday at the end of July.

I had a free afternoon, so I got to work on a mount for the electric fuel pump. I found that a #4 conduit hanger (1.5") fit comfortably around the pump. I glued strips of rubberized gasket material to the inside of the mount to dampen vibration from the pump. The pump grounds to one of the bolts holding the mount in place. I was in the process of bleeding the brakes when I discovered a hole in

I checked the FAQ's but I couldn't find what I'm looking for. My car was a 4 speed and still has the body harness for a manual. I am installing a PG. I have a PG dash harness with the neutral safety switch, etc. Will any modifications need to be made to the body harness for me to have reverse lights? Is it just plug and play or will I have to splice the wires that went to the reverse light switch

If it fit an EM, I wouldn't have hesitated. But alas, it's for a LM.

Nice weather and sleeping babies mean that I got a chance to work on the car. Today, I installed the parking brake, the brake pedal assembly, new wheel cylinders, new soft brake lines, new master cylinder, dash vents, and high beam switch. I also refinished and assembled the rear armrests. Tomorrow, I will hopefully bleed the brakes, install the fuel tank and install new universal joints. At

I need an axle flange. My parts car had a set and the drivers side came off with a few taps with a hammer. The passenger side will not budge. Heat, penetrating oil, prayer... nothing is working. It's looking like it will be a lot easier to just source a used one. Does anyone have one they are willing to part with?

Well, I got my weekend to work on the car, but it was wicked cold. The garage isn't heated, so things I could do were limited. I began installing sound deadening material to the floor and firewall. Two sections will have to wait because I am waiting on some floor plugs to arrive. I cleaned up my door panels and installed the drivers side door and quarter after changing the locks out for a matc

It's the small metal panel that would've covered the hole in the picture below. I think it's just galvanized steel.

I am missing one of the access panels that are covered by EM Convertible rear armrests. I'm not sure what this panel is actually called, but if you remove it, you can look inside the quarter and see the window, etc. I need one for the right (passenger) side. I had both at one point, but my parts stash has some MIA items. Anyone have one they don't need? I am in the process of installing my

Thank you for your service. My father did 28 years in the Air Force and I have great respect for anyone that served in any branch. My father went through cancer twice and the VA took good care of him. I've heard that the VA is a bit of a crapshoot. Some facilities are better than others.
