Re: Random thought about installing an ECM in a Corvair

Brad forgot to mention the in-between ignition only solution Megajolt, I made a guide for conversions: http://www.corvairnut.com/EDIS.htm If you need injection as well you can run the same exact ignition and control it with a Megasquirt controller, but you’ll need the injection related parts to make...

Dyno is better of course, but you can get 95% of the way on the street.

Re: 64 spyder burning oil

Another way to tell where it’s coming from is WHEN the smoke starts. If it smokes nearly immediately after startup, your problem is on the intake side of things because it’s being drawn into the engine and burned in the combustion chamber. Could be either the carbon seal in the turbo, or really bad ...

Re: 64 spyder burning oil

On the cold side you’ll never see any evidence of oil, since the fuel moving through the turbo washes away any trace. What’s more likely is a bad turbine seal, which leaves a cloud of burning oil everywhere you go. You can usually see oil wetness dripping down the hot side of it’s leaking, but not a...

Miniman82, your input is valued. I know it is asking a lot but you should have a website to document some of the stuff you have done and some helps for us turbo people. I appreciate the CD I purchased from you but I think there are many hear that would benefit from your knowledge. I do have a websi...

Re: Carburetors for a 63 turbo

Here's what stock turbo Corvair engines are and aren't: They are a product of the timeframe they were designed in, and reflect the technology of the day. They are not your moms Honduh, so don't expect to jump in and drive it 400 miles unless you're OCD as f*ck with your maintenance and don't mind so...

Re: Why do I need coil condenser?

It's basically a capacitive filter, keeps noise down and also stores a little energy to help fire the coil. I don't think you'll hurt anything by having another, but it's not required.

Re: How do I remove stuck turbo exhaust housing?

I have an NOS downpipe I don't need, you can have that for shipping. I might have a pedestal as well, gotta go look. If I were you, I would take a cutoff wheel to that thing in a heartbeat and set it right. The parts aren't that expensive, and I can take care of the turbo for a few coins.

Re: How do I remove stuck turbo exhaust housing?

Send it to me, I'll help you out. Usually heat and penetrating oil are your best friends with stuck heat shields, but some just refuse to let go. I did one for a guy a number of years ago that looked like it was buried in the backyard for 40 years, I had to tell him he needed a new turbine wheel and...

Re: Badge engineering on a global scale

They are selling what people are looking to buy, can't fault them for that. I personally have next to no use for all the gizmos modern cars come with, they amount to a driving distraction and that's about it. I'll allow the computers to control the fuel injection and cruise control, but beyond that ...
