Re: Sons first car

Welcome, you must have one in mind. Are you looking for a power plant? Do you want a good running unit or a one to rebuild?

Re: Hi all. New Corvair owner here.

You know funny story, my friends bought me the book "unsafe at any speed" and Ralph spent one chapter talking about the Corvair but He wasn't really "after" the Corvair but the car manufacturers in general. It is just GM didn't handle it very well and got the most press coverage. You could speculate...

Re: Starting question

Okay I miss read you, so when it is cold before you start, if you work the throttle do you see gas getting squirted down the barrel? If you do, it must be the choke settings,
One pump of the throttle should set the choke and the fast idle when it is cold.

WOW!
That is a beauty! I like the '61s front emblem.
Even has the factory Hub caps. Those are a 60-61 year only.

Re: Starting question

Hello,

I like to start with the basics, did you do a compression test?
So even with starting fuild it is hard to start? That makes me think you have low compression until you get the block warmed up. Just my first guess.

Re: The "Red Rocket" My 65 Corsa

I asked Clarks why they look so different, they said it is because I am comparing an early model to a late model.
That made no sense to me at all.

Re: HOLY CRAP! 1965 Air Conditioning!!

This is what a late should look like.

Re: ac questions

The expansion valve is plugged most likely. It will cause high head.
