I once bought a non running 65 Corsa. Parked for years. It was loaded with spiders. Corventure Dave

Your basically looking at mounting a 65 or Late powertrain in an Early/FC vehicle. About the only part that may be directly used is the transmission and it's input shaft if it's a Std trans. The Powerglides can be used plus the engine with Early tin's and rear engine mount. Back in 1972 my Brother got all excited having picked up a 64 Spyder transaxil. He pulled the transaxil a

I agree with Wagon on that bearing coming from a lifter that came apart. Especially since you have found a bank of aftermarket lifters. Be careful extracting the stuck lifters. I have had a couple engines that I had to split the crankcase and extract stubborn lifters inwards. Then I could clean the built up obstruction more easily. I believe these may have had burnt STP or some other goofy crap

A couple of those glass suction handle holders will make removal and installation easier also. As for the High desert YouTube video. Lots of good tips there. However I had not installed a FC deluxe windshield in several years when we made that. I have since had the "pleasure" of installing 3 more since then. Oh how the non deluxe without the stainless trim are so much easier. That&#

Yes. Put the nut back on to protect the threads. Then use two large hammers. Swing them both at the same time striking at the same time impacting both sides of the TR end. It may take a few blows, but this method has never failed me. Even when I lived in Up-State NY where rusted suspension parts are extremely severe. Corventure Dave

I have ran 3.89 and 3.55 in Powerglide FC's over the years. Also with 95hp and 110hp engines. In general, one first has to consider what is going to be hauled or loaded in the FC. I'll stick with my Greenbrier that I have personally put 300,000+ miles on over the past 43 years. It is a factory powerglide and I have built the engine as a 95hp and or 110 over the years. The 95 gives b

I did what Craig mentioned. For Concourse operations check, I had a new battery. For show I installed the zero volts OEM Delco with vented caps. Corventure Dave

Good for you! Looks like a standard Greenbrier. Also looks like a good one for restoration. Has had a lot done already, making it another plus. Great deal! Corventure Dave

What needs to be replaced is subjective. Of course, anything that is damaged or warn. looks like your going in the right direction. As far as coatings. There are several companies that make "cast Iron paint". Some are nothing more than Gray paint. However others are a perfect match to fresh cast iron. I have used it for transaxils and other parts for concourse competition. The coatin

I had the same issue years ago with my 65 Monza. The fix in my case was just what Ken mentioned. Replaced the TQ and all was fine for years. Corventure Dave

Basically, have to keep in mind that Gm built the Corvair as a cheap economy car. They put tons of engineering dollars into just launching this car. Engineering enhancements such as a cam gear retailer and many other things we have developed over the decades, just was not an issue for a car that was only intended to last a few years. Well... maybe 10!!! Corventure Dave

The exact date I do not know for when they went to the "safety bead" on the FC wheels. From my experience over the decades, up to 1962 there was no safety bead. 1964 and 65 had the safety bead. 1963 is a year in question. There could possibly have been a change mid year. I have seen 64 differential pinion shafts in 1965 car's, along with some other hang over items over the years.

Perforations, front to rear. The tube should measure 1" after installation. Also, check the cluster gasket face for flat before reinstalling the tubes. Many are severely warped. They can be hand milled with a piece of plate glass and 400 grit sand paper wet'd with WD40. Corventure Dave

I have taken a tubing cutter and made a grove around the pin. Then I use an E-ring as a retainer in the pin grove. It holds like the throttle rod on the transmission. Makes for a real clean fix. Corventure Dave

Lolly, I just sent you a PM message here with information on a local Corvair mechanic that I know personally and you can trust. One thing about owning a Corvair, is the fact that most every general vehicle service mechanic's out there, truly have no idea how to "properly" service and repair Corvair's. Our little car's are just too specialized and it's easy to spe

Just an observation... That washer was welded in eliminating the oval hole that is needed to properly do a rear wheel alignment. "Toe adjustment". Corventure Dave
