That’s a 65-69 on the right because 64 opens on both ends like 62-63 but larger. You could use that on the 62-63 with an appropriate bushing. It’s an improvement on any of them to not have to bolt it twice. Crawford

The ends of the 62-63 bar design are bent at a slight angle so there is no way to confuse these with the 64 and 65-69 bars which have right angles where those attach to the lower control arm. Crawford

Yes, he bought it while it was at Shade’s. Pete’s car is very nice, too, if you want a powerglide.

One problem with the sheet is that it does not show the diameter of the grommets to differentiate those. There are some grommets that will not fit the firewall because the diameter is different. I’m referring to the main body harness grommets “B” and “C” that go into the firewall. Also, the early two hole “B” sold by Clark’s does not have two large holes as depicted. One is very small and must be

I looked at the stock Corvette setup before I bought the LeVair brackets. There is a disc only spindle and a drum spindle for 65. The Corvette spindle has a different spline pitch and the u-joint yoke is not at all the same. The cost of the Corvette drum brake assembly that fits into the back of the rotor is very high as is the special rotor and so is the special backing plate (which fortunately

That torque is too high for 1/4 or 5/16 bolt. Probably 60 in lbs. but review the specification. Crawford

I agree with you about the slots, Rex. The '60 choke tube and later choke rods used the same hole space. Only '61s and turbos don't use it. This is why you can use shrouds across model years so readily. Crawford

Later part number 3886247 is late production with fat bosses for 3/8-16 bolts but are drilled 1/4-20 for early. Crawford

That was late model in 1965. All 60-64 have the same left front contour.

I need edit that last one, too, Jim. The 95hp, 98hp and 102hp have the 3777255 high performance cam. 1960 80hp is 6255609 cam and 1961-63 80hp use the 3779332 cam. Crawford

I think that the way to think of the 84 hp Monza automatic engine is to think of a 80 hp engine with 9 to 1 compression, while the 102 engine has the 332 cam in addition to the 9 to 1 compression heads.

The 61-63 FC and turbo build engines have the GM 500 bearings with the copper wash on the edges. These are part numbers 3788180, 3786725, and 3786741 and are getting hard to find. I used a set in an engine that I rebuilt for one of my 1962 Spyders. There were different part numbers 3834860. 3834870, and 3834880 for the Moraine bearings introduced in 1963 - the aluminum bearings for the 1964 mode

I doubt anyone would really obsess about that detail. I bought an In-line Tube repro that looks very original. It’s not like a GM turbo muffler that people like to see a part number on. It’s a wear item like a brake shoe. Still, these parts are out there for sale if you hunt around. Crawford

Sorry about that. Misremembering is dangerous, so double check. 3-7/16 for 145 and 164 is correct. Crawford

The full fin cylinders were not discontinued until March 1961 and had been upgraded before the end of the 60 model year. There are two kinds for 140 cid and 145 cid. The later ones had 3-9/16 bore and 145 cid pistons. Part number 3789576. I found two sets nos and used them with four Clark full fin cylinders. Virtually indistinguishable except for the stroke cutout on the Clark repro. Crawfo

Steel head gaskets were introduced in 1963-4. There were three styles of copper gaskets used for the 140 and 145 cid engines: Two asbestos type with different inside bore diameters and the folded style. The steel were thought to improve resistance to failure. Burned and stuck exhaust valves were an early defect remedied by the 1962 introduction of multi-grooved valve locks and valves that ca

What about odometer accuracy? I like the idea though. I would like a 140 mph decal for putting the 65 Corsa speedometer in the Spyder. Crawford
