These aren't mine, just posting them in case anyone's interested. They're in Otisville, which is in Mid-Michigan on the east side of the state. It looks like they're $1500 for the pair.

You guys are lucky! I search the toy aisles regularly and I haven't seen the Corvair OR the Jeep yet...still waiting.

I hope Clark's is building a lot of new ones, because they'll probably sell them all! I'll be in line when/if they come out.

Yeah, they didn't have them in the correct size (7/16" based on my measurement) at the two parts stores I visited. Clark's offers a wire clip as a cheaper alternative to the horseshoe clip, and my car is far from the kind of car where correctness is an issue. I'll order the correct clips the next time I need some parts.

I just ended up finding two of these clips at the local Auto Value. They seem to fit well and I think they'll work. If I remember, I'll order the correct ones next time I have an order in with Clark's.

Hello Everyone, I just replaced my parking brake cables on my '65 (front to back), and I noticed that my car is missing the cable retainers for the underbody brackets (not the suspension "loops"). Has anyone tried a brake hose retainer or wire clip that you bought locally? If so, could you give me a part number/size/place you bought it? I'd order some from Clark'

I hope the hobby keeps going strong; I'm in my mid 40s and I'd be pretty miserable without old cars to play with. Looking at the prices that Bring a Trailer and the auctions have been bringing, I think we may have a while to go. I've been looking for an early Riviera for the last 20 years, and they're bringing ridiculous prices right now, along with almost everything else.

I'll add to the chorus that you should find the leak. I don't mind an oil leak or two (or three), but this one's a bear to get to because you have to pull the whole drivetrain to get to it, so now's the time, because it won't get better from here. Remember to back out and tighten those pressure plate bolts evenly so you don't warp the spring.

Harbor Freight sells a 12-ton press; I got mine for $99 several years ago and I've used it a hundred times for bushings, ball joints, bearings, and even Corvair transmission mainshaft parts.

Apparently, my 2012 Focus 5-speed has a synchronized reverse. I've never had the transmission apart; I just read it on a Focus forum, but it's always gone into reverse easily.

I don't think I've ever gotten less than 18 mpg with mine - on longer trips I'll usually get 22. It does way better than my other old cars! The T-Bird tops out at 12.75 mpg, but is more often sitting on 10. Oof!

Yep, you're right...you can see them in my picture! Only the 1-2 synchro hub and sleeve have the marks, but that's the one I needed. Thanks Rex!

Quick question! I have a '65 4-speed apart, and I forgot to look at something when I was disassembling the mainshaft. The 1-2 synchronizer hub has to go one way, and I'm not sure which one. One of the sides has two "dimples" as shown in my picture. Are the dimples on the side of the synchronizer sleeve that has the shift fork groove or on the side that doesn't? A

I'm going to resurrect this post, since I just needed to replace one of these snap rings. I got a 10 pack from Home Depot of all places for $3.50, but it had to be shipped to the store. Thanks to Crawford for answering a question all these years later!

Yep, Michigan used blue plates for a LONG time ('84-'06 according to the Secretary of State website). Now we have about 74 plates to choose from.

I'm 43, and I've been here since I was 30 when I bought my only Corvair, which I still have. This place was very helpful when I was learning about the car, and it still is when I run into an issue that I just want to talk through. I don't post too much, but I'm always glad to read about others' experiences with their cars - I only wish I would have found this site BEFOR

In a few weeks, I'm going to replace the vent window channels in my '65 (at the front edge of the side glass). As always, I don't want to tear apart any more than I have to, so I wanted to check my procedure with you all. I imagine I'll just need to remove the door panels and jockey the window up and down so I can get the old one out and install the new one. Should I use an

I have an old analog Craftsman engine analyzer, and dwell always reads high on it. When my points are gapped at .016, I think it always reads about five degrees high. My newer Actron unit with a sweeping dial seems to read accurately, so I just use that.

Look at all the wagon love on here! Lately, I've been replacing some wiring, cleaning up some connections, and fixing up the clutch linkage on my Dart wagon. I use this car to drive around on dry days in the fall/winter/spring, so this past summer I rebuilt the heater, and now that big old fishbowl is warm on a chilly day.

I've used the Auto Zone Duralast VR715 on both my Corvair and my Skylark. They're cheap and available (although solid state), and both put out a constant 14.1-14.2 volts. I think the last one I bought was in stock.
