Hi Stumpy: Here is a link to look at about this site that might compliment your Corvair spirit (compliments of the Stickies at the top of the threads on the main page here: resizing pics to be able to post in threads, and tons other Corvair tips and tricks from years and walks of life of helpful Corvair folks. interesting how you described your experience about corvairforum more i

@David Malcolm you invited this forum to opine on BaT and it quickly diverged into the antics of ralf who; for which this wasn't probably what you sought from us. To answer your inquest, BaT has exploded on the "scene" of online car auctions and appears to be a leading force on 'true market value'. Ultimately you have to weigh all your options and your desired effect. I

the '69 owners are most active as a facebook group dave keeps the roster going and releases updates periodically in pdf format in the old days we all hung out here: but now seldom used as to ones out in the wild, well, some preserved some not, can't imagine it any different than other model years. remember only 6000 produced, other years production numbers were wa

my apologizes I actually meant phosphate not chromatic in original post, I must have been thinking about plating when typing chromatic. sorry for confusion. I am guessing Marine Clean and Metal Clean are synonymous. POR15 (and similar related urethane technologies) has its place in the market, just as epoxies, lacquers, and enamels do.

the "finish the floor plan" thread spawned a free thought in my head POR15 has 3 steps - clean, etch, paint and sold as a system of course buy all three parts with name brand association. BUT: isn't aqueous metal cleaner (step 1) all the same? I mean, one could substitute "less expensive" alternatives, or ones that are readily over-the-counter, so to speak? and is it

Hi all: I was wondering if there exists a step-by-step book for building a Corvair engine from the ground up? I have some books, one by Clymer Publications, Autobooks 947, the Tech manuals from CORSA, How to Keep your corvair alive, etc. The Clymer and Autobooks are good but somewhat generic in nature. Just thought I'd ask the Forum out loud. Thanks Chris

thanks for the reply Scott, I'll go with "stronger penchant for work than I do". lol I know of Pete, probably even corresponded with him in years passed, about something or another. this cross member came out of #1112 that I parted out a long time ago, so I have two of almost everything mechanically speaking for '69. there really is no purpose to doing this other my attempt

Hi all: I recently had a nicer 69 front crossmember de-rusted and direct to immersion e-coat and baked that I had laying around along with some other parts. Photos attached show the results. I was contemplating my next move, I think I want to spray a high build primer over this and sand down for a generally smoother appearance. I wasn't looking for perfection as this is more an educational

Pete: you stated early on you had a '69. another forum user '66vairman' indicated you may have emissions equipment on the motor. In '68 and '69 Corvair models, Chevrolet installed what was referred to as A.I.R. equipment. In a general sense/description it was made up of uniquely designed exhaust manifolds, a belt driven air pump, and lots of steel pipes and rubber hoses

I have Michelin on all my daily driver cars (up to 4 now) after years and years of trying different brands. The Michelins just last and last and last and have left me with a lasting impression for quality and longevity. That said, I've never experienced any dry rot on my sidewalls like you have described. Albeit my climate is a bit different than yours (WI versus CA). Your climate can be pr

maybe CORSA could follow the national major car magazine strategies lead and you get your August Communique in May. to clarify, my Motor Trend and Car and Driver show up dated months ahead of time. Thus, even if USPS is late, the mags are still way ahead of their time! there is a mixed bag of advice and snark and humor in this message.
