Re: Gear box/transmission

I plan on replacing all the mounts. Thanks for the info.

Clutch disk confirmation needed.

So while replacing my differential I saw that the main seal is leaking and causing a wet clutch. This is the disc that was in there. http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll148/Vintagevwnut/Corvair/BE55AC40-00C9-40A2-BB92-B705BE4EB30C_zpsi2mkke8f.jpg So is that disc the bottom one on this page? http://...

Re: VanMans '63 Corvan ( formerly known as Sancho)

Scott I never did get the Single wheel painted. It's been sitting up against the wall for 2 years. I want to get it out once the repairs are done. I really plan on painting it when my bug gets paint.

Thanks Lostboy

Re: VanMans '63 Corvan ( formerly known as Sancho)

Of course it's taking longer than I wanted, life gets in the way. And I thought I had parts handled till I went to pick em up and I got a nasty attitude so I left. Gotta order em now and had to wait to do so till I got back from vacation. I'll be doing some work tomorrow and hopefully getting parts ...

Re: VanMans '63 Corvan ( formerly known as Sancho)

Hello old friends and new ones as well. I'm in the middle of going through the drivetrain on the van currently. Replacing the differential, clutch, rear main, many other gaskets, carb rebuilds, points, plugs, clean and regrease axle bearings. So he can be on the road more and be more dependable. :)

Re: VanMans '63 Corvan ( formerly known as Sancho)

Thanks that rack is long gone. I have some rail mount roof bars instead. Shift knobs? Just have fun changing them out.
