I've probably asked this question before, but don't remember the answer. The setup on the ultra van reminded me of these auto trans oil cooler pans. Has anyone ever made or modified Corvair engine or trans pans to take advantage of the extra cooling through pipes would provide? Scott '65 Corsa basket case '66 Monza coupe

Looking under an UltraVan this morning, I came across this bizarre setup. Pipes run out of the front of the engine oil pan, into a highly modified PG pan, then loop around the engine and return into the rear of the engine oil pan. Can anybody tell me just what is going on here?

Not much to report other than it being a perfect day and a great time with lots of Corvairs including an Ultravan. I've seen additional pictures from other attendees posted on several FB pages. Top of this page has a slide show with 49 photos.

I remember the episode where they found a guy with an UltraVan and were "trying to buy it" from him. We talked about it on this forum at the time. They "offered" him something like $8,000 which was crazy but he "didn't bite". It was good theater but no way. Real pickers just don't throw money around like that. I like the show just because of all the old junk and occasional neat stuff they sho

I want it! Does anyone know anything about it? Seen it recently? I'm wondering about the condition in person.

I wanted one for months and I'll need one to help me install the new power-plant with the deeper pan. Sadly I spent way toooooo much money this past August picking up my G3500 Diesel and tried to transport another Ultravan that went wrong - not once but twice I went out there in Aug to try to get it. I spent well over $1,400 in hotel fees... Oh and I delivered the Wayne 100 to its new owne

I too have many of the free HF meters. Keep them in kitchen, cars, etc. The only time they are flaky is when the battery is almost dead. Seen this with Flukes also.... For the price, they are great!:D Oh, but they are not built to take a fall.;) Nor save the battery (no auto off). Speaking of this, I have seen Flukes ruined by leaving batteries in them so long they leak onto the circuit boa

I personally know I could put one to good use. What a great way to test stuff. With all the Ultravan wiring / circuits I have to test and/or replace and the more modern circuits I will be adding to coaches with relays. As for their meter vs Competitors... NOTE: Theirs goes up to 600 volts... Great for testing these newer hybrid and EV cars or hopefully some day soon my own EV 60 Corvair

Tony, most of the time I'm all for doing things right which would involve pulling the engine and rebuilding it. This project isn't one of those times. I prefer to dedicate my time and resources to the Ultravans and Corvairs. I think I'll try the MMO and if it doesn't work I'll probably just pour oil in it and use it as is. I've considered catching all my regular drain oil and using it. 3000

Yesterday was a busy day. It finally stopped rain - so I was able to remove the Wayne 100 engine out of my truck. I then had to go to the self serve car wash and clean out the truck bed from nasty leaking oil and rain water mess. I needed a clean truck bed to move household items. I then went and clean out 90% of our storage locker. That was a project that I had hoped to get done back in Aug

I forgot to mention that I want to use a set on an Ultravan and that is why I want to face them the other way.

It was converted and is owned by long-time Corvair enthusiasts Howard and Marsha Boso of Corvanatics fame. He also has a quad-cab Greenbrier conversion in the background of some of those photos. I think he still has an Ultravan or two as well.

A generator compartment ,eh? Well that would be convenient, but it sure messes up the look of the front end! If I owned that thing, I would paint it PINK. It looks like a GIANT Hog with that ugly snout! :P

An UltraVan is for sale in Marietta, OH. This is the same UV I had reported on in a previous thread. The contact phone number is 740-896-7031. Even though it has "265" written on a window, in the previous thread Owen had identified it as #283.

Yes. Bought it because Ultravans fit on the bed. Works great for Corvairs too!

I'm working on it. It's really hard to get all the same years together without moving a bunch of cars every time I get a new batch. All the Rampsides, wagons and Ultravans are together and so are at least most of the '60s. Working on getting all the vans together.

forsale UltraVan #277 has a new craigslist ad (Thanks Phil!): https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/rvs/d/1962-corvair-ultra-van/6696332189.html I don't know if this is the same seller as before, I see that the phone number is different though.
