Awesome Steve! I love it! Thanks so much for reaching out! I am enjoying this project and the Ford GT40 body style is my all time favorite car! I cant wait to one day complete this project. Although not a real GT40, it is going to still be damn awesome!! All The Best, Gary

Hi Steve, Funny that you remember. This is a very slow going project I am working on. It is a kit car with a Corvair engine in it. When I first posted, I had just got the project. I started the engine and heard a slight rattle. It was the gear box was dry. No dipstick in it. You have to go under the car and fill through a bolt hole. The car was not ready for paint at that time but I had started

I have a 140 Corvair engine mated to a VW transmission. The VW input shaft is a little smaller than the corvair. I bought the one from the guy who custom makes them on ebay from oil light bronze. It is a nice tight fit. You have to stab it in and out a couple of times with an old input shaft, or go in partially and back out again a couple of times to get it a little looser before installing engin

Thank you guys so much for confirming. That is where it was at when I took it apart, but wasn't sure if someone else previously had moved it and if the current position was correct? Your help was much appreciated...

I have a 1965/66 140 hp corvair engine with 1969 smog carburetors on the primaries. If you look down the throat of the carb in the attached picture, there is a brass slotted screw (Needle Valve) in the bottom right hand corner. I am told this is the smog screw. I am told it is set from factory and should not be played with, and in later models had a plate over the top so you could not adjust it.

Thanks Rod, I found a guy on ebay who makes and is selling a pilot bushing for the corvair to VW conversion. Says it is .008 smaller on tolerance to fit VW input shaft. I think I will buy that one... Being that is is pretty easy to drop my engine, I may put it back in and run after new Pilot bushing and see if rattle goes away? After that, I guess its time to tear into the gear box.

Sorry for any confusion guys. Please accept my apologies. The conversation started to slip away from my issue and more onto my kit car. I wasn't sure if people would still follow up reading on the original post. Thank you jJohnsonjo for your advice. Craig, Thanks for your input. My name is Gary. It is a 1966 140hp Corvair engine bolted to a 1965 VW transmission in a Avenger kit car.

OK, So I removed the clutch and pressure plate. It is a solid clutch with no springs and is fine. the pressure plate is also fine. The pilot bushing doesn't look so good, so I will replace it, although I cant see this being the issue of the rattle going away when I step on the clutch. When stepping on the clutch, you are disengaging the transmission and stopping it from spinning. I now think

Not sure what an A 1 R is Timothy, but the engine has no number on it. It was a crate motor from Chevrolet. They came without numbers stamped on the block..

Thanks for your help Steve, and Rod. Attached is a pic of my GT40 by Fiberfab. I have it all stripped down and in black primer as I am doing body work for paint. I will be a full restoration. Will be a cool car when done. The tires you see in the pic are just junk tires to roll the car in and out of the garage. They are much smaller than they are supposed to be, thus the big gap in the wheel well

Steve, This is a corvair 140hp engine in a VW chasis, with a ford GT40 body (Kit Car). I didn't know a corvair engine would bolt straight up to a VW bell housing and rear end? Does what I say make sense? I have a rattle in the drive train in neutral, but when stepping on the clutch it goes away. Seems when I put pressure on the pressure plate the noise goes away, thus must be a bad pressure

Steve, This is a corvair engine. Is it not using a corvair flywheel, bell housing, and rear end?

Dave, Seems to me when you step on the clutch you are putting pressure on the pressure plate, then rattle goes away. If flywheel was bad, it would do it all the time?

I have a rattle in my drive train while engine is running in neutral. If I step on the clutch, the rattle goes away. I have just dropped the engine, and assume this is a bad pressure plate? Everything seems to be tight on the pressure plate. The throw out bearing seems to be good. Any opinions?

I have four H model Rochesters on my car, and am looking to put four individual K&N style filters on them. Does anyone know what might fit? The problem is the neck of the carb has two flats cast into it that protrude from the neck, so you can not get a seal with a hose clamp. Any suggestions? See attached pic
