Another great gathering and show put on by CPCC. The John Glenn Corvair is awesome up close. Forgive me Andria for causing you Greenbrier window screen envy... Thanks for the parts Bob. John G. '64 Greenbrier 110PG

My '65 'vert had plastic door edge trim in body color and no bumper guards. I liked the look. On my Greenbrier I like it with bumper guards. John G. in PA. '64 Greenbrier deluxe

Sorry Bill and others. I had high hopes for you. I went ahead and called East Penn (Deka) customer support directly and he said they stopped making the 353 about a year ago. Nothing in group 53 case size now. John G. '64 Greenbrier Central PA

Hi Eric: They're not rebuilt and with no known history, but I have a pair of heads with your same number available. Recently removed from an RH code engine. If interested, let me know and I can add photos here. John G. '64 Greenbrier Central PA

Don't know if it will help, but there is a factory body repair booklet on the Corvanatics website. I found it an interesting read and I'm probably less of a body repair guy than you. No experience in fiberglass panels... Best of luck in your repair, John G. '64 Greenbrier Central PA

+1 for Dale. Received my own HB back from Dale last Friday with his "full treatment" extra machining. Mine was not separated, just 50 years old with hard/cracked rubber. Took 1 week total. Looks like new... Most noticeable is an extra hole in the face that was not there before. He obviously mounted the bonded/painted unit and spun it to check run-out and re-balance. After the grea

C95 - If you're following... As of today 1/28/2019 Spectrum Brands no longer owns the STP brand. It was sold, along with Armor All and other brands, to Energizer Holdings along with Rayovac brand batteries earlier this month. Now STP is with the Energizer Bunny to keep him running even longer. John

Just curious and interested... Did this key shear during the initial 30 minute run at steady 2000 rpm? If so, what would cause torque/load enough to shear a crank key under break-in conditions? Is it more likely the key already sheared and the gear spun 360° (or close) on the crank before assembly followed by another 180° at the end of the run? Glad you found the issue. Thanks for sh

Glad your handle came off OK Van. Now you're the expert As I recall putting mine back on, I held the clip and let the end of the handle shaft go thru it rather than try to go over the side (OD) of the shaft. I think the clip slipped into the groove as the handle seated, but that was a couple years ago... Looks like you're getting ready for paint. I'll bet it's going to l

The clip holding the handle shaft in closer to the door skin. Ring "A" has nothing to do with retaining the handle. The clip holds the shaft to the chrome "escutcheon" piece not the latch mechanism. Illustration from the manual showing the clip - item #1... Hope this helps, John

My Greenbrier had the same gas smell symptoms recently. It turned out to be failing (rubber tipped) needle valves in the carbs. The residual pressure in the lines allowed fuel to flood into the engine through the carbs after shut-off. Finally, when parked slightly uphill, fuel filled a cylinder and locked the engine overnight. Some fuel had leaked passed rings and into the crankcase too. Me
