Eddie, just as an option for throttle linkage, Roger Parent makes one of his for the centermount Holley setup. I can't comment on the geometry of yours, as the one I had was already bent and had the Clark's mounting under the carb. It was a good setup.

Wait Matt, those have AC seats, as in cooled? Pun intended, but that’s cool if it does!

Doesn't Motohead wrap duct tape around his hose to insulate and guard against possible starter issues?

I see Silverado seats pop up fairly often for sale. It’s nice that they have the integrated shoulder belt. doug6423 Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > OttawaCorvairGuy Wrote: > ------------------------------------------------------- > > doug6423 Wrote: > > ------------------------------------------------------- > > > I wanted a

Thanks for sharing Mike. It might sound kind of nerdy, but I like driving that track in Gran Turismo 5 video game; it's that much cooler when it's a Corvair doing it!

Cool setup! Did the stock Dodge setup have the fuel injectors in the ports?

And to add to it, I have a worn -891 cam with gear that’s yours for shipping as well.

It almost looks like one that a member here on the Kansas side had for sale. That was before the 2017 convention so it's possible this could be the same one but a different owner.

Ever since I saw/heard a rear mount 215, I’ve thought they were super cool. Don’t seem to see them much though.

Matt, is this a recent changeover or have you been running it for a while? If it's going bad, Mike Dawson has internally regulated alternators that he converts and are ready to bolt on.

So true! I still remember Rod saying "bring your tissues" to the dyno session. Thanks for the update. I hope to do the same with mine sometime and will update as well.

What Dave posted is what I've seen/read. Even Chevy measured the 140HP at an actual 109ish HP. An article by Tom Berg (I think) in one of the tech guides is regarding a club member's TBI fuel injected 140HP named "Bridie". It was putting out 100 hp and 133 lb/ft at the wheels. Other than the fuel injection, I don't know what else was done to the engine.

Anybody need/want some used late model smog pistons? I definitely don't need them. I also have the jugs if wanted. Free to good home!

Concerning the Quadrajet, I remember seeing that Demon had a Street Demon 625 (something like that). It had smaller primaries and seemed to be a combination of a Holley and Quadrajet. On paper/webpage it seemed like an okay fit for a Corvair, as I remember the primaries being slightly smaller than a Holley 390. Obviously the secondaries were larger but you get the idea.

That’s what mounts a single Holley 5200(?) or Weber 32/36 to each head, either two carb or four carb. I’ve never used one but the few I’ve read about having them seemed to have mostly positive things to say. However, for a 140 type head the stock setup would outflow it (unless you can get the carb to feed BOTH ports on each 140 head, then it would be more comparable).

Matt, I've always wondered that too since I heard it was a hot one. I think I read in Classic Corvair that the '63 turbo and '65-66 turbo cams were almost identical and supposedly hotter than the original 102 cam. The numbers that come to mind pretty much line up with nirvairna's post.

To add to what Steve said, having other members nearby can be a life saver. Whenever I find a way to screw something up, fellow club members (Mike D., Scott A., Larry S., Travis B., just to name a few) help me untangle the mess! At least having a second set of eyes/ears might help you.

So Tom, you’re trying it out on a 110 first? I think this is a cool product but didn’t know if it’d be worthwhile on a non-turbo application but it sounds like you’re finding out.

What length and how much are you asking?

DaveCS1 here has been using them. I would like to use them since they are lighter springs and retainers. In addition, they’re supposed to be easier in the valves with better harmonics. Chevy used them on the LS style engines which have high lift. Those are basically a drop in replacement since the dimensions are very close the same as ours.

I have a mechanical pump but I'm thinking about installing a Mr. Gasket electric fuel pump inline as a backup and priming. Does anyone know if this will work? I know the Airtex 8016s works inline before a mechanical but didn't know if the MG would (I had it so I thought I'd use it).

Thanks for the tips everyone. I'll give it a try with the two stud/castle nut method.
