Sorry Tim. It looks like I sold that NOS Cam Gear at the Fan Belt Toss this year. I had thought I brought it back home. Corventure Dave

A vairy Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Have a lot to be thankful for this year. And especially this time of year... Thank you Dad for taking the job in So. Calif back in 1965 and moving the family out here. We had to leave the relatives behind in Rochester NY. Loved living on Lake Ontario. Fall colors, White Hot Dogs, Finger Lakes the Adirondack's and such. However, I thank you d

What condition are the wrist pins? I only ask because the pistons appear to have signs of a bit of moisture on them. I like to only run standard bore like these you have. Thanks. Corventure Dave

I have one also. I believe for genuine General Motors NOS part #6255610 they are going for about $75. Corventure Dave

As mentioned... the FC rear panel is double panel. So a simple cutout is not possible without a lot of fabrication. Anything can be done with the right amount or $$$. However, take something like the "Two" Ramp custom Rampside. Perhaps easier design wise because the parts can be acquired from a doner. Corventure Dave

I no longer have facebook. It was just too darn annoying! However this location is just over the hill from me. I am not familiar with the sellers name. I may be wrong but I don't recall his name with local chapters either. I hope he reaches out to our local chapters also. Corventure Dave

I looked for one for a friend at the Palm Springs Fanbelt Toss swap meet a couple weeks ago. I did find one... Ir was NOS and could be had for a poultry $125. These are a special Corvair FC only script. I did find another Chevrolet emblem there that I believe is off a Suburban. It is the same length, however the script is bolder and the mounting pins are in different positions. Corventure Da

Wow. I wonder if it was a carburetor back fire. Speedy recovery wishes. Will be good to hear the details when time allows. Corventure Dave

What Frank said about turning over the solenoid fork lever. I did just that back in my college poor boy days with little money and keeping my 66 Monza on the road. It's still a viable repair. However these days I can afford new parts. Corventure Dave

The shrink tube I have used for years has a ploy liner that melts and seals when heated. This makes a real positive permanent repair and seal. Versions are available from most suppliers. Corventure Dave

Another fantastic year. I really liked the change ups with food and such. No issues with the old set ups, but it all worked out great. Super job Inland Empire Corvair Club. And also a shout out to all the other assisting chapters. Was great seeing everyone once again this year. Thanks again. Corventure Dave

Timothy and Craig are correct. In fact I converted my 62 Rampside to the 1965 Car signal switch. I used the car cone and switch and then adapted the wires. I believe Craig did this also and posted an article on it here some years ago. Corventure Dave

When the AC44FF plugs got scarce, I started running AC44FFS plugs. They are the same as the 44FF but have the extended tip like Champion. In fact I bought more than several box's of them back then. I still got the FF plugs when I could find them, but not vary often. I have been running the AC44FFS for decades in 95, 110, 140 HP engines. Excellent plugs! I know some people went with the A

Original Early ignition switches came two ways. Some have the extra acc 4th pin and some do not. Most I have seen only have the 3 pins. I do not know the exact history of the 4th pin switch, however I have seen these both switches in original Early and FC dashes for decades. Corventure Dave

I am looking to buy some rebuildable Late flywheel cores at the Toss in Palm Springs this weekend. If you have any Late flywheels that can be rebuilt, please bring them by my space at the Fanbelt Toss in Palm Springs this weekend. The price I can pay will be determined by their condition. Nothing bolted, welded or rusty, please. Look for my Green Greenbrier and two Blue canopies. Much apprec

A Bernzomatic or propane plumbers torch can heat the head up without damaging the aluminum. Just don't over due the heating. I usually advise extracting broken bolts or studs. It is extremely easy to get off center drilling. Especially with the head still on the engine. Let us know how your efforts go. Corventure Dave

If you can get vice grips on the protruding bolt end... I would heat the head up around the bolt with a propane torch or alike. Candle wax can be applied to the threads or another penetrating oil. I have replaced the valve cover bolts with 1/4-20, 1 1/2 inch long all thread studs. This eliminates valve cover bolt issues. Corventure Dave

You are right Ken. Who knows how many were also driven with a flipped belt? My Uncle was in the oil business back then. He told me that there was no fuel shortage. He sold 20%+ more fuel than the previous year. People were told by the oil industry, news media and in some cases politicians... to keep their tanks full. This along with panic hording drove demand up 10 - 20%+ over the previous ye

Ray, I'm glad you found the issue. Mike stopped by recently and we discussed the issue. I assured him that the flywheel was machined within spec's. I have in fact came across at least 2 Dale flywheels over the years that were machined so thin that there was no channel between the clutch face and the bolt circle outer step. Unfortunately that's now scrap. Having a flywheel face

My observations... I had the opportunity to disassemble seven 164ci engines at one time back in the 1980's. Out of the 42 original pistons, I found only 3 that did not have the latent crack below the oil ring! I remember when we had the embargo mess in the early 70's, people were putting cheap regular gas in cars that required premium. Especially most Corvair's. The rattling and
