EFI pump/Return regulator for Carb engines. I have not tried it since everything I own is EFI, but might be worth looking at with my in-tank assemblies. Holley EFI to Carb regulator A little expensive, but this mechanical pump thing has gotten a little out of hand. Ted

I am in need of points plates, so for the hoarders that keep old worn points plates but can't bring themselves to throw them away, I am your guy. I am building an EFI Distributor using the original Corvair distributor. I have bought some cores and some straight out, but I have about 15 distributors that are missing point plates. The plate is the only part that matters...basically, if

I have parenting classes for the next couple of weekends. I thought a little late, they should have required them 40 years ago when I really needed them. My priorities are changing but I still plan to continue with Corvairs and EFI. Have fun...hopefully, I will make it next year. Ted

I have my tickets, but I have never won anything in my 60 years. Anything I have gotten for free usually cost me. I considered it a donation but would love to have it. I think If I got to 10 Corvairs, I would probably stop as I have no more storage room. Ted

First, let me thank you, the users for allowing me to use the forum to post important updates for the EFI system. I try not to abuse this privilege as this is a safety/performance bulletin. This only affects EFI systems built since 2020.(2nd Generation) Fuel Leak around injector: It was noted that the injector started leaking due to the injector holder loosening over time due to vibration an

Just to clarify. The EFI pumps are made by Bosch. The Carb pumps are all China-made. I actually bought a Carter pump and it had printed made in the USA, then the Box said made in China. The China pumps and Carter seems to be made by the same people (machine marks, housing, etc). The internal pumps are rotary vane pumps and tend to whine. I've had a couple complain about the whine a

Inside Tech Session. Might be boring stuff for most, but thought I would post it. Please ignore the heavy southern accent... I must have been feeling really country that day. Ted

OK... I have a copy of a video made by Donnie Bird of the outside Tech Session. After the inside discussion, we went outside in 100-degree weather and installed EFI on a Carb'ed engine. It is long and should be shortened, but this is what I have so far. Youtube Video of EFI install Make sure you have CC (Closed caption turned on) Ted

Wow Craig, You got me nervous now. Me and another club member installed the Corvette type (C3) and never had an issue. I have about 100k on them, but I guess anything can break given enough time. He never had an issue neither as far as I know. The reason I went to a Corvette Heim-type setup was the trouble I had getting the originals installed after removal. Ted

Sadly, we are all heading down that track with no one to take over our cars or our Corvair-specific companies. My children (in their 30s) could care less about Corvairs and even less about building fuel injection systems for them. I'm going to give my nephew a Corvair and see if I can spark some interest and will be away of getting rid of another rather than just sitting in a warehouse

Easy come easy go. The 66 Corsa Convert with AC is gone, but another replaces it. 65 Corvair Monza, 140 HP EFI, 4 Speed Convertible I know the 66 was worth a few bucks more, but I didn't want to spend the next 2 years or so getting it ready to paint, etc. I just want to enjoy them and plus this one already has my injection system...So I am ready for Helen, GA Ted

Has anyone used them? I bought a set for the 63 GB (I cant remember the company) and they looked good until I sit in them. The other thing I noticed was all the bench seats were not long enough. If anyone has any first-hand knowledge, might be worth posting. I've been down with a back injury and sitting didn't bother me that much, so I decided to use this time to sew my own seat

Turns out the new pumps can't be trusted much more than the new mechanicals. The second pump was Mr Gasket brand and it was bad almost right out of the box. The other pump probably lasted them less than 500

The 66 Corsa, 140 AC is was traded before I even got it home. It will be fixed up by one of my Corvair buds and I have a drivable 65 Convert 4 Speed, 140 Monza in exchange. There is a lot to be said about a car you don't have to fix up at my age. Ted

Just purchased a 66 Corsa Convert 4-Speed 140 w/Factory Air. Pretty Cool FM Factory radio that even works. Pretty good shape and happy the get a driver while I redo the 68 Convert. It's got close to 300k on the body and is just worn out (except the engine). I plan to go through it and fix it back to its original glory.

We are still in the same boat, but our connector and terminal supplier has given us a new ship-date of 1 Apr 22. What does that mean?... Nothing but they do send updates. I could use some Chinese knock-off-brand stuff, but I got burned on that stuff a long time ago and will not let that happen again. I know Delphi (Aptiv)/TTI connectors are probably made in China, but they have quality cont

I plan to mount the controller on the ash try as I can drill that part of the dash without GB guilt. It's 3 wires which I will tap at the rear and run along with the factory wiring harness. Glad yall are taking advantage of the cheap price of that unit. I am very happy with mine at $150 but would have been happier at $89. I may get another and figure heat for the 68 Convert. I am lo

Update: I moved the output from the Corvair ductwork to the vent to the front of the wheel well as I wanted to get warmer quicker. 3" hole saw and it was done. You will also need a 3" vent. I used Everbilt 3 in. x 8 ft. Semi-Rigid HP Expand Ductsemi-ridged aluminum hose from Home Depot for $13 The Vent Face comes with the heater system. Now, I paid approx $159 from Ama
