Warning... Make sure the Wife is out shopping whenever using the kitchen sink! Also follow up with a detailed sink cleaning with Comet cleanser. And also check the floor for residue drips. Do not leave greasy fingermarks on the paper towel roll. Final note... don't put anything garage related in the kitchen trash can. Failure to follow these tips may result in serious injury or death!

I see it's the old trick of running the trans axle upside down! That was a old trick back in the day. They would cut the clutch housing.... bell housing.. in half and weld it back together 180 degrees rotated. I always wondered how the bearings in the trans and diff got properly lubricated. But then... dooners did not worry much about things like that! Corventure Dave

My Mother bought a brand new 1963 Monza Coupe. 102 with 4 speed. Black with Red and White interior.... From Taylor Chevrolet in Rochester New York. That started the Palmer Corvair stories that continue today. I still don't know why she chose White bucket seats for the interior, with 2 pre teen boys! Well we both learned to drive in that Monza. And we both did everything stupid a teen coul

Wow. A huge thank you for all this work! The one thing I hope can be done, is to make photo attaching to posts easier. Other Forum's I belong to only require click and drag photo's from ones file. This is so much easier than our system here. Especially for us who have a Chrome Book. Thanks again. And looking 4ward to the updated Forum. Corventure Dave

Steve and Caraholic4life said. correct. Have you checked the present price of the beautiful re-pop Rampside Ramp and Tailgate latches lately???? I just kinda wish I had bought 2 of those ramp bumpers when I restored my Rampside. Corventure Dave

My later production 1964 Monza had the factory oil bath filter that is mounted in the Left rear corner of the engine compartment, much like the 1965 and later units. I believe there was a change in the production year or at one of the assembly locations. The filter mounting bracket is different than the 65 style oil bath canister mount. Corventure Dave

Oh.. Like the stuff like that I did back when I was a starving student in college, early 1970's. What ever it took to keep em running! I like the wire support of the Left air cleaner retainer too! Corventure Dave

The Early 1961 - 1964 air cleaners can be installed on a Late engine. As far as some aftermarket Chrome ones for the 2 carb engine like you have, I would check the Corvair parts vendors. Perhaps someone else here has another idea. Corventure Dave

Early = Flat or Late = Stepped flywheel? The best machining is done with a bare flywheel face. Having the backing plate and center plate in place can distort machining the surface properly. People have done it and it may have worked OK, but there is a best procedure for the best results. Corventure Dave

Also may want to check voltage to the coil. Plus the coil may be failing. I have seen new off shore coils that overheat and fail almost right away. If the coil was exposed to too much voltage at one time, it could be an issue. Also be sure the fuel filter sock on the fuel sending unit in the tank is not encrusted and limiting fuel flow. Just another thing to check. Corventure Dave

SsnakeOyl is a great source. I have had several sets of belts done by them. They offer different levels of repair. From show perfect quality to driver. The belting and stitching is the same as OEM. Thats how they do it. Corventure Dave

I have been using the STP added about 10% like Ken mentioned for decades. The STP makes the lube much more sticky than 00 grease alone. 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
