Those would absolutely blind people. Halogen housings with LED bulbs. If you don't see a projector lens it's going to be blinding people when using HID or LED bulbs.

That's the only thing I feel is missing from the PMT rods. I ditched the cam bolts and made square washers to lock a standard bolt in place.

I have a telescoping column. It was in my car when I bought it and I keep the wheel all the way forward all the time. Even though I don't use the telescoping function it is the sexiest corvair steering column in my opinion and that's why I like it.

You need a proper projector lens for either LED or HID and those lights don't have them. The problem with making a 5.75" light with a good projector is they stick out the back and can't possibly fit an unmodified headlight housing.

Bummer. That's an expensive ignition failure! I wonder what the chain of events was that caused this. I'm guessing the coil shorted and took out the driver in the safeguard. Open that sucker up and see if you find a shorted transistor.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Yes Jonathan that's a 1" bar. I wish there was a feasible way to make a r&p kit but I don't see a good way to make a bolt on type of kit. Someone would have to make modified steering arms. Then the problem of attaching to the steering column because of the varying column shaft lengths and steering box attachment styles. Every install is going

The ackerman feels the same to me as it did before. I haven't noticed any tire scrub on tight turns. I placed the rack so the tie rods were at about the same angle forward/backward as when I had the steering box in there with wheels pointed straight. I did not check bump steer with the wheels turned but now you've got me curious...

This is a mod I have wanted to do for years and have finally gotten around to it. I never did find any useful information on how to do this so maybe it'll help the next guy considering installing one. I'll start off by saying that this is just a guide and the setup will be different in every car depending on how your car's front suspension is setup and also the connection to the st

No snow here, just lots of rain. I'll be buttoning up my rack and pinion install this weekend which I also need to test...

245/40 is a good size on the rear if you're running 215/45 up front. Those two sizes have almost identical height so they look the same except for the rears being wider. That's the combo I run on 17x8s.

Oops forgot about the common ground in the corvair dash. Now Dave if you could incorporate a positive rail PWM into the stock headlight switch dimmer that would be pretty cool! Hmm I may have to try this myself...

Voltage divider will not work for dimming LEDs. A pulse width modulator is needed and will dim linearly from dark to full brightness. Something like this:

You can use the stock bolts but the camber adjustment with the camber bolts is no longer needed since the rods adjust. I did away with them and use regular bolts and where the cams use to be I made square washers out of 3/16" steel to lock the bolts in place.

Straight. The curved ones had more ground clearance but even the straight ones are not a problem on a lowered car. The ones they offer now are offset on one end I think to get the same clearance as the curved ones but easier to make.

I don't like mushy bushings but I also wouldn't put metal heim parts in my suspension because of how harsh they are on the street and the wear factor. If you want to run a spherical bushing I recommend the lower strut rods from pmt fabrication. The best of both worlds.

It is unclear by your description and pictures what you are actually selling. An e flow compressor and compressor housing along with a 64 b flow turbine and exhaust housing? That would describe what is in your picture. I don't know what a t wheel is.

I used to have the same issue when I ran a yh. Problem easily solved by holding the gas pedal to the floor during a hot restart. My theory is the thing heat soaks when shutting the motor off, causing the fuel to boil over in the float bowl and flooding it. No carb spacer will help this problem but changing the float level may. I always just held the pedal down to clear the gas out. Give it a shot

Hubs have to be turned to fit in the s10 rotors. There's no way around that one.

There is no advantage to using the rajay center housing. I would stick with stock. And have used both e/b and e/f I prefer e/f. Yes the b spools a little faster but in my experience wasn't a whole lot quicker than the f and doesn't do as well at high rpm running 15+ psi with a qjet. So choose depending on how you plan on driving the car.

Subaru's distinctive rumble does come from the unequal length headers. Changing to equal length dramatically changes the sound and the rumble goes away. I know this from personal experience and there are plenty of youtube videos demonstrating the difference.

Actually you do want to boost a newly rebuilt engine. Don't get crazy with it or run super high rpms but you need cylinder pressure to seat the rings and you won't get that by babying it. Otherwise you run the risk of glazing the cylinder walls and not getting a good ring seal which can cause the motor to consume oil.

You should definitely feel it. Don't be afraid to put the pedal to the floor. You kinda need to with a stock turbo car. If the turbo is good and the gauge indicates boost then maybe your timing is off?

The wilwood slave cylinders are very easy to bleed and you don't need any special equipment. Bench bleed the master then bleed the slave like you're bleeding a wheel cylinder. I know some hydraulic throwout bearings and slaves are a pain to bleed but that's not the case here. I did replace the bleeder valve with a speed bleeder so I can bleed the thing in a matter of minutes.

The reason I went hydraulic is because I installed a pressure plate with a higher clamping force than stock and was worried about the cable system wearing and breaking prematurely. After reinforcing several areas in the car that flex, giving a mushy pedal feel, the only issue I have had was because of a misalignment with the slave and clutch fork which caused an o ring to start leaking within the
