There is only one thing you can count on when it comes to the Cal DMV, is that you can't count on anything. Everything that everyone has said about Cal DMV's was true at that point in time and at that DMV. I don't know how many DMV's there are in Cal, but if there are, say 2000, I'd bet you could get close to that many answers to any one question. It's called DMV shopping. Most poeple know that

Most are running Corvair engines, 2 Spd PG and differentials. General Corvair engine of choice with most is the 164 Cu in w/95hp 889 cam, 4 degree crankgear (from 140 PG). Some are running VW cylinders for more displacement. Most came stock with a 3:55 rear gearing. Some people run 3:89 or 4:11's in them now. Mine has 4:11's. Couple those gear ratios with the PG and you have great pulling p

Are they using the same engine as a normal corvair? Anything special about it? Does it use a gear reduction axles like the older VW buses did? Who made the coach work? kinda looks like the old Air Steams.

Watching the whales drag racing was a blast. They do the quarter mile in about 4 minutes.

There are alwsya few for sale... from projects to show quality... and prices are not as high as you might think based on the rareity. They are VERY wide and have performance similar to a 1600-powered VW camper (glacial acceleration, top speed about 65, top cruising speed about 55) so they aren't practical for everybody... Bill

Whale watchers- a member of Alamo Corvair has a whale that's been beached for years- (ain't that cute!!!!!)-- I think it's complete, and could probably be bought fairly cheap. I think he has to move all his non-working vehicles soon.... Don Manen

So I'm on vacation right now (Jerome,AZ at the moment) and I THINK I spotted an Ultravan just outside Seligman. It's in one of those classic yards full of "stuff" so it's hard to see and I coudln't raise anyone to ask even after some borderline trespassing. Nice dog though, a couple horses and a bison! Anyway, if anyone's close and wants to check it out, head west on old 66 from Seligman a mile o

Wish we could go again!! Maybe next year in the UltraVan...... Havn't been since 98' when we lived closer. We're jealous!! Will look forward to hearing posts about it and seeing pics.

I use deep pans in my performance cars......just for cornering / oil slosh....nothing else... If you had an FC / Ultravan then one of the deep sump that added 2 qts it would be worthwhile....

Just got back from a business trip to a bank in North Central Arkansas, which necessitated driving through some fairly winding two-lane highways through the Ozark and Boston Mountains. On my way there on Monday, I was driving on US 412 and noticed that a large vehicle several cars ahead was slowing down a bit on the curved sections...nothing that was slowing me down in a major way, but being c

Nows the time to commit and maybe Clark can pull it off . I wasn't planning to go to detroit but would definitly be there if there were Corvair drag races like in kentucky in 2004. Anyone can run if your car is safe. A Rampside won last time ! It's bracket racing. Even ultra-vans were racing (?) each other. Even stock corvair drivers will have a blast. Contact Clark

877! That's not much help. I don't know how to find out where that is. That calender is just kooky enough, that I thought it may have come from Arizona Charlie. You may recall some previous threads about the guy. I am not intending to hyjack the thread, BUT it ties in with two other current threads. I met Charlie at last years GWFBT (Great Western Fan Belt Toss). He was flirting with

We went every year from about 1991 to about 1998 but havn't been since moving to N. California. Need to get down there again!! Used to be at least 5-6 UltraVans there every year up until we stopped going. Lots of cars for sale, lots of parts, lots of great people. As someone already said, great weather every time. Neat to see so many Corvairs cruising around Palm Springs! Here are a few pics.

This is what I put on the Whale... I wanted a postive fan belt off alarm for the ladies... and it does buzz with the ignition on, so instead of something fancy I simply used a momentary off button to push while starting. The temp light is a different sort of circuit and from the wiring diagrams a simple diode will keep the buzzer from going off with the ignition on (that's what the factory sys

I know there is at least on person running a cooler on their differential in the UltraVan clubs. The differential is where the heat is really generated. This person only runs it when necessary like when pulling a hill. They are using a Tilton electric oil pump I believe. I think it is totally unnecessary in a car given the lite weight. More important would be regular oil changes.

Okay, after going around and around on the gap clearance I called Clark's and I talked to someone else. John at Clark's verified that .010-.030 end gap for the top two compression rings was adequate. He said to aim for .012-.015 for the top ring. He said that actually they recommend following the .010-.030 tolerance for all the pistons they sell whether they are Hypereutectic, eutectic, regula
