Thanks all for good input. I myself haven’t used one of the sears sockets for this type of thing but I’ll look into that... It’s interesting to note that all of the other nuts came off on this engine but this one...it must’ve been a nut that was in bad shape when it was re-used at the Last repair... Thanks again for comments

Good morning, in breaking down my project engine I have found a rounded off upper head stud nut. I have tried all my various 9/16 sockets and cannot get a grip on it. Question..is there enuf room to try one of those fancy fit-all sockets that I don’t have? Or should I just Dremel cut it. Sorry I can’t include a pic at this time, I can’t edit the file any smaller on my iPad came

Thanks all for your patience,,,I finally found a spec sheet from airtex that clearly states what the 8016s pumps at. It seems to be the winner... Again thanks.

Well, on a Corvair I would use it as a pusher from a front mount so uphill isn’t a selling point, but good to know. My concern is the exact fu

I, like many evidentley had to improvise on a tightly fit yoke. this was my solution...essentialy using one yoke to make a puller used with a steering wheel puller.. Maybe someone else could use this, I know I will always keeps a spare yoke and puller with me in future road trips... good luck with yours

Hi there, when looking for an Airtex eLectric pump I notice that there is a specific one from Summit that shows to be rated at 4.5 psi. I assume this would be preferred over the one that goes up to 9psi. The part number is e8016sx Any thoughts anyone?

If one was nearby I would have to take a look at it. At my age I really don’t have a need for speed, but I will admit the fuel economy you described would make it attractive for the speed given.

Im coming late to this conversation but I have a question..how well did this design do in the water in a real boating environment? I'm all for Corvair power, but w/o looking very closely to the mechanicals, it not clear to me how it was built. Are any parts still available for either end of the motor for repairs? It is obvious some machine work was done to build the power head. I could see

Just to follow up on this thread I thought i would include a pic of this distribtor as installed on my 64 coupe project. It seems to have a 154 cam, a 536 shaft, "e" weights, and a 230 vac can. All of this seems to be consistant with a 68 110 as mentioned to me via e-mail from Robert Lane. I have found that someone may have installed this just beofre it was parked 30 years ago or so

The car sat for 30years. It does turn over but has so much mouse residue in the head fins and cylinders I hate to even start it. I will probably pull the whole drivetrain to clean it up

Hi there forum.. I am looking at the diz in my 64 project car..the number on it seems to be 0370. Is that correct for a 110? I also have a spare diz with the 0319 number. Which would be a correct for a 64 110 diz? Thanks for any reply I understand a complete check of all internal diz parts would be needed as well. JS
