Re: 66 Convertible Rescue

Would the 11 C on the tag mean it was built in November of 1965???? Since each model year began its release around September of the previous calendar year, the 1966 model would have hit the showrooms in September 1965. So 11C on a 1966 Corvair production run would have to have been produced in the ...

Re: Removing lower shrouds for headers?

Removing the lower shrouds (or cutting them) does not reduce the cooling capacity of the cooling system on the Corvair engine. The cooling fan and upper shrouds are all still in place and conducting cooling air across the cylinder head and cylinder barrel cooling fins, and through the oil cooler. Re...

Re: Doing A Monza Dash In My '61 Lakewood ?

:think: SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT... The Spyder instrument cluster certainly makes for an attractive upgrade over the standard Corvair instrument panel. The tachometer and speedometer are fairly easy to connect. Some wiring harness modifications would be needed, including a power tap for the tachometer ...

Re: Starter Shims???

Re: ...more leaking oil

You need to start at the battery with a multimeter to determine how far the voltage is getting. First, do you measure voltage across the battery terminals? The 10 gauge Red wire then connects to the voltage regulator. Another 10R wire travels from the voltage regulator to the multiconnector in the e...

Re: Starter Shims???

If you need a new battery, the odd size and shape of the EM battery box might confuse things a bit. Clark's charges quite a bit for a battery that is similar in appearance to the originals...

Re: Starter Shims???

I have driven and worked on Corvairs since the 1960s, and in all of those years I have never heard of requirements or procedures for shimming the starter on the Corvair. I do know that Clark's Corvair Parts makes a big deal about properly installing and welding a replacement ring gear on a Corvair t...
