I am adjusting my 66 vert windows also using a 66 Fisher body manual and determined the Corvair is a Z body. There are also top adjustment instructions in the manual.

So, I am coming around to the idea of converting to an electric pump. Can anyone confirm what can be expected for fuel pressure, at the carb, for a turbo application and using what I would hope would be a real Airtex E8016S pump?? The pump would be installed by the tank, running through a modified mechanical pump housing, using the original type of fuel filter w/return line and original fuel li

D&M did a great job on my Corsa speedo. The needle was jumping and there was grinding. Much later, after the rebuild and getting the car on the road, I discovered it was inaccurate. They recalibrated it based on my GPS speed readings and it is now exact, at least up to 75 MPH or so.

My 66 4 spd tranny comes out of 3rd hard and I have to tug on the shifter after it warms up. All of my shifter components have been gone through with new parts. I now have a used 4 spd tranny that shifts smoothly. I am suspect that the 3rd/4th shift fork shaft, in the side cover, has a wear spot that hangs up, or it could be the side cover housing being worn. At this point, this is only a theo

Good to have feedback on reliability. That will be the priority when my time comes to upgrade. It seems there were wear issues with some of the machine work in the past. Is this still an issue?

I called Clarks to get the status on part numbers C9499, 9499C and 9499CP and was told they are waiting on parts for all three kits and that they will be available in the future, although they did not have an ETA.

Oops, I posted the wrong Clarks part numbers. They do show 4 spyder kits available as C9499 and C9499C. Has anyone used them? Are they reliable?

Just took a look at the hole alignment and it looks like a slight enlargement one bolt hole and a slight outward bend on the other end should do the trick. The gaskets I have now fit the heads well but there are more on the way that I will check out as well. Thanks for the advise everyone.

The flanges of my turbo intake manifold were slightly warped so I flattened them. Afterward I discovered they were out of plane with each other and so is another manifold from another engine. If I push down on the right flange to seat it the left flange raises about 3/16". Is this normal? Did any of them fit well? Will they suck down and seat without leaks when tightened? The head surf

This LM wheel discussion is timely for me since my 13" tires are questionable and I am planning to buy wheels this fall. The concern this thread has brought up is the backspacing. The wheel I was going to buy is 15X7 with a 4" backspace. How concerned should I be with a 4" backspace? Does it make any difference if they are lighter alloy? Is the concern because of a possible bu

Anyone have a NOS turbo crossover exhaust pipe available? I may be interested in a NOS inlet also. I have been fighting exhaust leaks and poor fit of aftermarket pipes for too.

It will come out either way and I would suggest removing the entire powerpak also. When I removed mine, engine first, I had the front and rear on jackstands. After lowering the engine I let the frontend back down to the floor then raised the back another 4 - 5" or so to clear the turbo. I was using a Harbor Freight jack. When putting back in the transaxle was put in first then the engine

WTB - Good new or used throttle body for a Carter YH turbo carburetor. It would need to be for a 66 if they are not all the same. The throttle shaft bores must not be worn and the gasket surfaces In usable condition. A throttle shaft is not necessary. Thanks

Jim, I installed the long end of the float toward the front in my 66. I no longer have any sender issues.

I installed a new Clarks tank and sender in my 66 about 2 years ago. After putting fuel in the tank and discovering I had no fuel level reading I read that their floats were installed backward. By the time I pulled the sender from the tank the float was full of fuel. I think the sender float was bound up against the rear tank wall and was submerged. The sender was also not working. Clarks r

I have similar issues with my 66 turbo and wonder if it may be related to the float height or fuel level. I don't recall where my float level is adjusted but intend to recheck and make sure it is set to 3/4" and not 5/8". I believe my metering rod is one step lean for my elevation around 5,000 feet.

Does anyone know of a reliable in-tank fuel pump that would not require a pressure regulator for a turbo? Cutting holes in my undercarriage for an external is not appealing. Thanks

Pinstripe worked best for me. It can be trimmed with an exacto knife if needed. It also stays put when paint hits it and doesn't peel like tape can.
