I’ve been running a Viton crank seal in our UltraVan for over ten years now with plenty of heat due to the load with no leaking if that means anything. Granted, I’ve only put 10,000 miles on it in that time. I heard rumored that Viton isn’t really intended for a rotation sealing surface but I’ve not had a problem. Time will tell.

Good times at the Toss today. Just got home. Put over 200 miles on my Greenbrier and she didn’t miss a beat. Got 18mpg! Lots of really nice cars and FCs to look at. My son loved the ultra vans. Tons of parts! Met a few site members. Got a good oil pan from cFred and a distributor from Seth Emerson. Swapped a few stories with corventureDave. Pleasure to meet all of you. Looking forward to the ne

The Whale will be there. Celebrating 10 years since CEO decided we could get one, while we were at the GWFBT&SM in 2007.

Bob & Diane Galli put 120,000 miles on UltraVan #504 at 5,800 lbs. They traveled all over the USA, sometimes on only 5 cyls (intake valve failure on the way to a rally). Bob custom built a 110 engine with squish heads and a 95hp cam with 4deg offset crank gear. Basically the engine I was trying to copy with my build for #500. Not sure what axle he used though.

Hi Jerry, On our UltraVan I thought I had a persistent leak from the governor. The bore was clean & smooth as was the surface on the governor. I tried a thicker oring to no avail. I even tried resoldering the governor housing thinking the leak might be coming from the seam. It only seemed to leak while driving and would stop at idle. What I finally did was have my wife drive slowly while

I recently installed an internally-regulated alternator on my UltraVan. Sometimes when I start the engine (I think 3x now), the voltmeter jumps straight up to 16 volts, causing much squealing of belts until after 10 to 45 seconds it drops backs down again to 14v. I have the the sense wire connected directly to the charge post. I thought maybe the connection was bad so I wiggled the wire and co

Just confirmed that there will be at least 4, and possibly 6, Corvair powered UltraVans at the annual Palm Springs Mid-Century Modernism Week Vintage Trailer Show coming up in February. This is a curated show limited to 60 participants, and is a pretty big deal in the Vintage camping industry, featuring mostly vintage Airstreams and similar trailers. Corvair will be the most prominent powertrain

Took The Whale to Brian Head Utah for a little camping, and to earn some cabbage. Nice and cool at this altitude, and pretty girls just seem to jump in while I'm not looking.The FC Powerglide and 3.55 diff from Jeff at California Corvairs worked flawlessly with the 3.0 EFI, from Mesquite at 1780 feet elevation to about 11,000 feet at the top of the hill.

Standard Brand Automotive Products used to be quality stuff but recently, I bought a new solenoid for our UltraVan and I noticed performance issues almost immediately but put up with it until I couldn't stand it anymore. I'll back up a bit to tell you what prompted me to replace it in the first place. We were driving in hot weather and pulled into a gas station to fill up. After fill up, I a

Diff whine was probably the transmission. I got into Jacksonville last night and the Governor seems to be leaking. I'll have indoor storage and will redo all the seals and restore it!

Mine was modified (mostly by Terry) to accommodate the stacked folded fin oil coolers, to block off the cold air outlet (not used on UltraVans), and to remove the smog bracket. I also added a blower screen to keep the mice out, but that didn't require any actual mods. I was not able to find any changes required to accommodate the Emerson distributor. Owen

Does anyone know the PG Governor seal ring dimensions? Matt is asking. I have lots of seals but want to be ready if he pops in for the repair.
