Matt Add me to that list. Should have never used his carbs as they did not even look the same as o.e. carbs. Many problems. Put old ones back on, adjusted a few screws and good as new. Grant's are in a box on their way back to him.

Matt was right! Not a starter problem but in the ignition switch!

New problem. No starter motor functions on my 64. Turn key and no sounds, just a slight dim on the interior lights. No click from solenoid, nothing. Checked the ground wire from the battery to body, to new alternator. All good. Battery charged fully. Nothing when using jumper cables to Corvair cables. Ideas, comments?

Thank you all for the comments. The Diode is removed and all works great. Next project is to replace the carbs with rebuilds from Grant Young in Fla. and complete the electric fuel pump installation.

I just installed an alternator ipo the generator/voltage regulator on my 64. Changed everything needed to make modification but now the gen light fails to come on at startup. A little flicker at shut down. Every indicator light worked fine prior to change out. Checked the diode in the blue alternator wire and it is ok. IDEAS?

Just got a new boot from Clarks as old one would not slide or snap properly. Too old and brittle. Well worth the expense. New one slid right in and all snaps now work properly.

I HAVE THE DIAGRAM FOR WIRING MY NEW ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP ON MY 64. IT SHOWS A WIRE TO THE IGNITION SWITCH FOLLOWED BY A 1 AMP FUSE. EXACTLY WHERE CAN I TAP THIS WIRE INTO THAT COMES FROM THE IGNITION SWITCH? AND DO I NEED TO USE THE OIL PRESSURE SENDER IN LINE IF I USE AN INERTIA SWITCH AND PRIMER SWITCH? THANKS ALL

I do not want this third brake light to flash with turn signals. Turn signals and brake light filaments are the same on a 64. Can anyone give me a schematic on the wiring or is it in a third light fixture that I am yet to locate? Appreciate any and all suggestions.

Anyone ever put a third brake light on a 64 or earlier vair convert? If so, please advise how and where the light fixture came from. These cars seem so low that the stock brake lights might be assisted with a third light mounted on the panel behind the rear engine cover. Comments?

Has anyone mounted the new electric fuel pump with rubber grommets between the mounting strap and the frame of the car to stop the ticking sound?

Check on the black side serial number. The last 3 digits are the week and year of manufacture. Don't be caught buying tires older than 8 years as they should be scrapped for sidewall weather-checking. I was a tire guy. Am replacing Firestone FR380 tires that are 8 years old and look perfect. Great if you do not plan to drive your vair. I just assumed your car is a driver.

Can someone give me their latest thinking on installation of an electric fuel pump in my 64 Monza 110? I would like parts list, schematic and locations for install. I understand that the best emergency shut-off is the oil pressure sending unit. Comments?

YOUR BEST BET IS TO USE TUBES AND FLAPS. THE FLAPS JUST LIKE ON A BICYCLE TIRE PROTECT THE TUBE FROM CHAFFING AGAINST THE SPOKE ENDS AND THE TUBE GUARANTEES TO HOLD AIR.

Ok, I read Bob Helt's books and am now more confused that ever about what engine oil we should be using, by viscosity and brand. I never use the vair in real cold weather, not even rain. Live in northern OH just south of Cleveland. Need comments about oil use with our sliding lifters. Comments?

Have you considered putting tubes and flaps in the tires so you do not have leakers? I have wire wheels on my 64 red vert with Firestone FR380 tires. Looks great!

I got a speeding ticket in Texas a couple of years ago. I have never been in Texas. That was also a VERY BIG PIA to get corrected. blurry picture of my OHIO plate. Colors did not even match! Again, a real PIA.
