Hello Craig, Good to see another LM Sport Sedan project. There are several two-tone combinations that would look sharp. I have always wondered about doing one with Cameo Beige (main) with a Sierra Tan top and Saddle interior. Another possibility is Danube Blue with a Mist Blue top and blue interior, but this might be a bit too intense. Dale Dewald Hancock, MI

That crack is certainly the result of metal fatigue. Based on the location and that it did not appear to originate at ether flange, I think that it was caused by more of a twisting motion of that frame member. Am I correct to assume that there is only one crack on the inside of the frame rail? I see that you have welded the crack shut, but I suggest that you go further and add some reinforce

That leg interferes with full closure of the damper door. That way, some cooling air is flowing across the oil cooler right from the start. Although I think this is more to maintain cooling of the oil on a warm re-start or during periods of prolonged idling. It only takes a couple minutes for the damper doors to completely close after shutting off the engine in cool weather. It is my experience

It aways pays to try some novel ideas for removing paint. We got lucky on my wife's car. I noticed that some of the paint was flaking off the roof and deck lid, so I tried working on these spots with a razor blade. After developing some technique I decided to buy a gross of blades and the holder tool from Clark's. It only took a couple of afternoons to strip 90% of the car down to fa

The first thing I would check are the spark plug cables routing in relation to firing order. Are the two dead cylinders reversed? Dale Dewald HAncock, (UP) MI

Hello Donavin, According to the distributor chart in Bob Helt's book The Classic Corvair, the 1968 95/PG still used the same PN 1110311 distributor as the 65-67 95/PG. I am not sure you will gain much by swapping or recurving it. I cannnot speak for Grant, but he may offer a bit extra in core value for your PEV carburetor if you purchase smog carbs. I suggest you take the recommendat

I would have to check some other FC's to make sure, but I think the piece you got from the Ranch is from a late 63-65 FC. The holes are for the attachment of the "front control splash shield" that came on FC's sold in northern states beginning in mid-63. Here is the said piece on our '65 Greenbrier, and the hole. Note that I have modified the splash shield to accomoda

I think the springs you have are for the 63-65 Greenbrier and Corvan. I took the following measurements for a set of #3829556 springs that still had the original parts number tags: Wire dia: 0.765" OA Length: 11.5" No. of Coils: 6-3/4 These springs were in a '63 Greenbrier that I have for parts. They had been installed as replacements only about a year before the vehicl

It is hard to tell from the one photo, but the windshield frame seems to be pretty solid--an area that is difficult to repair correctly. This would be sold as an "easy resto project" in my area. I am curious about the Jeep Commanche P/U in the background. If rust free it would be perfect for transplanting the 2.1L Renault turbodiesel from my rusted out '85 Cherokee... Dale D

I have only owned and used BOSS snow plows, which seem to be the choice of most commercial operators here in the Upper Peninsula. The other brands typically found in our area are Western, Sno-Way, Fisher and Blizzard. My older BOSS plow was designed to use Dextron ATF or 10 wt hydraulic fluid. Most of the older Western units with the combination pump/lift cylinder also use this fluid. BOSS has

I own a 1965 500 4-door purchased from the widow of the original owner in FL in 1986. Said owner had bought the car in upstate NY before moving to FL and had resealed the windshield and backlight with clear silicone rubber. After removing the trim he filled the channel between the glass and body, re-installed the trim, then sealed the trim to both the glass and body. This car has spent about 1

Since you are in the Midwest check again at Fleet Farm for an Amsoil display. Many F`F stores are carrying it now and so are many FLAPS. Oils I use in Corvairs: '65 Greenbrier 110/4 (newly rebuilt) - Amsoil Z-Rod 10W-30 '65 Monza 110/4 (15 yrs/50k on profesional rebuild) - Amsoil Z-Rod 10W-30 '67 500 110/PG (83k original engine) - Mobil 1 High Mileage '67 Monza 110/

I have researched "Stock Is.." wheel color in preparation to restore my '67 500 4-door. All of the Corvair wheels came from the wheel plant with semi-gloss black paint applied by dipping. (The modern reproduction of this would be powder coating.) The wheels were then painted or not depending on the car line and options from the factory as follows: 1) For Monza's, Corsa'

Hello Ben, Unless you can find an original 500 model from an arid area, it is not likely that you will a rubber floor carpet. Most of the 500 models from more humid climates and especially the salt belt lost their floors within 3-8 years of normal driving, then most of these cars were scrapped out. A lot of the owners of remaining 500 models removed the rubber flooring long ago and replaced

My favorite is a modified Chrysler magnetic pickup housed in the original distributor triggering an MSD box [6A or 6AL]. Not stock but nearly bulletproof.

I am interested in purchasing a '65 FC block with either the RU (110 manual) or RX (110 PG) stamped code. I would also consider a blank (no numbers or letters) universal replacement engine block. Please reply with condition, price, location, etc. Dale Dewald, Hancock, MI 906-482-2872
