I have a LOT of nos & used parts that i am going to use to get it running first. Then teardown & rebuild as needed.
Will be needing info / help on turbo inspection / re uilding if necessary. Carb rebuilding etc.
We have a spare motor (110hp i think), spare used 140 hp heads a spare block, a pair of brand new bare 140 hp heads, cylinders, pistons, rods and on & on
I am looki g to ID the rear end as to ratio and need to know where on the corvair engines are ID #,s stamped or cast.

Car has a little over 79K miles.

That is a good project car from the looks of it.

You might discuss your experience level and what you can do and what you plan on having others do.

I noticed Calif. plates. You might mention your location and find local clubs that can assist with information. Many aspects of the Corvair require shops with experience.
