Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

I went home, checked the oil, washed the cat prints and dust off, and brought it to work. Hot afternoon ahead, but I'll likely survive. Car is running really well now so pretty happy, but: I might be able to lean it out 1 jet size, it still smells kinda rich. I do have Ray Sedman's WB O2 sensor, jus...

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

Haven't posted in some time. Occasionally post on other Corvair forum, but wanted to bring this one back up to date. Been mostly driving my car for the last year occasionally. I needed a torque wrench for my DD Saturn Ion's needed clutch replacement, so I decided to drive the Corvair down to get one...

Re: 65 Corsa Turbo Overheating at sustained highway speeds

Did you clean all the flashing out of the heads when rebuilding the engine? Something to look at if not done. Also check the oil cooler to make sure it's not blocked like mentioned above.

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

I found that while I was balancing the carbs, as things warmed up more to full operating temperature, the driver's side carb was no longer closing fully. Adjusting that linkage 1 turn then made the car almost stall, so up the idle set screws on both carbs equally till happy. Uni-syn says things are ...

Re: My 61 Monza

With all the air flowing in through the hood louvers the temps stay fairly constant while it's running, near ambient due to the flow to cool the engine. Of course, it does heat up after shut down. Even with the turbo motor won't change it much. That being said, I like the idea of mounting them remot...

Re: Noisy Lifter

I have one lifter that will clatter for a few minutes after sitting for a while, must have shut down with it open and it bleeds down over a few days. A few minutes and it quiets down. Doesn't happen all the time.

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

Yes, I do have the uni-syn and I do check balance both at idle and off-idle. Just didn't open it enough there to spot the clip removal goof. It's all good now. I will return to Roger's linkage now that I have everything working well on the stock linkage.

Re: Its been awhile!!

I had an issue where the plug wire for #2 cylinder failed so that side would stay choked since that's right where the choke coil lives, thankfully didn't take long to figure that out, but it sounds like it's still a carb issue on that side.. do you have a Uni-Syn?

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

The solution was mundane.. when I squeezed the u shaped gap on the primary carb that controls the fast idle to decrease it and lower the fast idle, the upper part moved both down and out, rubbing against and handily removing the lower retaining clip from the throttle link. I was trying to accelerate...

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

I decided to adjust the fast idle a bit and turn the idle mixture screws in a bit more this morning, and drive the car to work to see how it liked the changes. I could tell something was off beyond a possibly slightly lean idle mixture. Had no time to troubleshoot before work, but suspect the "new" ...

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

Balanced the carbs, and now I also have a LOT more fast idle when cold that I did before, when the section of the throttle link that touches the fast idle cam gap was different between primary carbs so only one was really even touching the cam when the chokes were shut. Have turned the choke links d...

Re: 1965 Corsa clone, but a sweeeeeet one

I had a occasional hot start problem recently, and I think I found the issue being a slightly sticky primary float. I also did some minor adjustments on choke tangs on the throttle attachment so both primaries are open the same amount when on the same fast idle tang. One was clearly not opening as m...
