the trim clips (the little joiner pieces) are the same as the c10 trucks with deluxe trim. LMC and others carry those small pieces.

Interesting..... so there was a change to the mold for the last year of production for something that was going to be disco in short order? After using the same mold for 3 years? Gotta love the bean counters

Been following this for a few years now. I feel it would be a perfect addition to those of us that like "old" stuff.

vent tube goes to a port on the air cleaner There is a small capillary tube that attaches at about the center of the length of the tube that attaches to the turbo, just after the throttle plate of the carb.

When I shipped my cars from LA to Mesquite, I went shipping broker, Stars and Strips Auto Shippers. Spoke with Jimmy. I got, what I think anyways, a decent rate, for all four corvairs.

The stock steel pans will take more of a beating that any alumimum pan ever will. There is a reason that they are often beat up and dented. Ductile metal weathers road projectiles better that simi brittle metal. Stock steel pans bend, cast aluminums crack. Just an observation....

I would think that you would find the info you are looking for in either the assembly manual for the car or the Fisher Body Manual for the model year of the car. But I could be wrong...

When I had the shop, we used trans jacks similar to the one in your pic. The key is to mount the cradle in the right spot so that the assembly is balanced. Keep the ground clear of small parts and rocks. Easiest way to get the power pack in and out of the car. We used to use a metal utility cart with a gig we to support the transaxle, mounted to a milk crate, with a deep pan underneath. S

There were two different companies that made the vert top seals when I was running the shop. Steel was more expensive vs Metro but quality of both was top notch and both had metal reinforcements. Going to the their respective pages shows about a $100 difference. Of course that it is the standard Retail Price. Vendors with accounts get discounts based on their volume (in most cases) and the

The boxed in area where the oil cooler sits is larger then the more common one for the the 8 plates. Easier identifier for me has been the smaller summer winter port in front of the oil cooler box. It is just slot about an 1 1/2 wide.

Here in Mesquite, smog is not required regardless of age. However I have seen later model cars sport the "classic car" plates and wondered what criteria they used to determine "classic" status. Also, registration fees drop pretty quickly as the vehicle ages. I forget the cut off but after a while its down to $16 a year.

When I have ever shipped engine blocks, i put the studs facing each other and strap the block so that they dont bonce back and forth Then find a thick box that will fit the block. Usually have to cut down and make flaps out of the tall portion of the box and cut off excess to put around the block. So far no studs have busted out of the box.

Was Craig Nichols that did a write up on the conversion of the EM FC directional system to the 64/65 system. Only need a connector housing from a 65-66 Car or 64-65 FC fuse block hardness and the packard 56 connectors to convert the stock harness to accept the new directional switch.

If memory serves me correctly, The block itself will not interfere with the cam itself, but EM Cams (Wide lobes) Will no work with LM Cranks/Pistons. As the longer stroke puts the big end of the rod into the path of the wide cam lobes.

Had a muffler shop install duals a customers R/S. We supplied the 140hp Upipes and left it up to him to complete the install. Only stipulation the owner had was "I dont want it to sound like a corvair!" Muffler shop came though with flying colors! Use a flatish "turbo" muffler. When the 140hp motor with the 270 isky cam fired up, it sounded like a V8 at idle. Not off
