Re: '65 '500' sedan project from the dry Central Valley, CA

Well...finally figured out what was wrong, and got my venturi clusters to stop leaking, and gas to stop puking out of the carb vent holes. Yea...we have prolly all done it, but hopefully ill not let it happen again. I am printing this picture, and stuffing it into the rebuild section, of the Bob Hel...

Love the upholstery! For a car with too many doors it's looking sweet! I think the wire wheel covers look great on her too. :tu:

Thanks, Trip.

Re: '65 '500' sedan project from the dry Central Valley, CA

Well...this is a tedious job!!! The teflon bushing upgrade kit, from Clark's, needs a reamer. You can only do so much with the drill bit, and the teflon tube is so very crushable. Finally got both sides, of one carb, in. And it looks good!! Other carb has springs and o-rings, that i didnt see earlie...

Re: '65 '500' sedan project from the dry Central Valley, CA

Okay, Brad. I will have to go through my prototypes, since the one in pics, is the one in car now, and im pretty happy with it. Although, it does not sit perpendicular to the ground, as i wanted. I did, however, just fold down the stock radio tabs, so ot could go back stock in future. Also, had to t...

Those seats look pretty nice! The fit as well. Should be nice and light, too. Nice score!

Re: '65 '500' sedan project from the dry Central Valley, CA

Been loving this thread. Thank you for posting. I just was rereading it and noticed you have original plates - how cool is that? I have the “classic” plates on my cars but love that your Corvair has original ones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thank You...My other Corvair, another 65 project M...

Re: '65 '500' sedan project from the dry Central Valley, CA

Been driving and enjoying the 500, moredoor alot lately. Tunes are sounding good, and plan on installing Clark's "better sounding", dual front dash speakers soon. Should fill in the front seat area nicely. Meanwhile, i developed a vacuum leak, after i installed intake valve seals. Anyone else experi...

Re: pensylvania bondo bucket

I can relate to this, I just purchased a 66 conv and I found that they welded diamond plate on the entire floor to cover up the big holes in the floor, and put 1/8" metal over a hole in the trunk floor and used cardboard with bondo to create the lower part of the front fenders, I hate undoing this ...

Not too many hours on the engine, at all...and i think i lnow why. Here is pison #6. I can either buy a single piston and wrist pin, and assem...

Re: '65 Monza project in the dry central valley CA

Looks good! Are you replacing the stabilizer rod bushings? The look shot. Thanks @GasDaddy140. Yes, today was just a mock up, to make sure i have the right length rod. I have been trying, in vain, to find a definitive database, that lists stabilizer rod lengths, and their respective vehicle/transmi...

Re: '65 Monza project in the dry central valley CA

Well...finally got around to mocking my shifter mech up. I am changing from a '66 4-speed to a '64-'65 FC 4-speed, in this car. I know about the trans length differences, and mocked everything up with the, newly aquired, '65 car trans support. First, im glad Mike Stillwell prompted me to do this, be...

Re: '65 '500' sedan project from the dry Central Valley, CA

Put a pair of 4" speakers on a plate and install them in the dash where the stock speaker was. I like to also install a crossover on them to block the bass. The 4" speakers sound much better when they don't have to reproduce bass. You should get plenty of bass from the 6x9's in the back. Sent from ...
