Re: Miking the cam

A new cast gear should be fine for a stocker especially with a 260 cam. As far as measuring the peak lift of the cam lobe, it's not square on the top, but ground with a slight slope to induce lifter rotation. Your initial measurements are typical of what I have measured. Have you run engines with t...

Re: Miking the cam

Thanks Ted, I think I’m gonna do the same and probably go with an Isky 260 and a stock cam gear bc I haven’t altered the heads. Is it possible to reuse a cam gear and have it pressed onto an aftermarket cam shaft?

Miking the cam

In the process of measuring lobe lift on my camshaft. I’m doing this simply by using a micrometer on a stock 140 cam. My question is one of tolerance. In the back of the manual it’s states the lobe lift should be .260 but it never says anything about tolerance. I’m getting values that vary from .255...

Re: The Quarantine Vair

Been reading Helt’s book on the carburetors and it looks like I’m in the possession of 4 63 carbs. Also turns out my “new” engine is from a 66 and not a 64. My question is, since I’m trying to run a 4 carb setup with 4 (primary) 63 carbs, can I modifying two of these carbs to be secondary carbs by c...

Been working on cleaning up the heads and noticed this mark is machined into the mating head. So clearly it’s supposed to be there but is there a purpose to it? Wouldn’t it prevent the head from sealing properly to the cylinders?

Re: The Quarantine Vair

This 1965 110 hp 164 CI engine resides in a Corvair Monza that is sitting in San Antonio. Seller says it is "not running", but cars like this may be worth examining if they aren't too far from you. You might just come across a solid engine that just needs some TLC to be transplanted into your car's...

Re: The Quarantine Vair

So at least one of my heads is trash. Tomorrow we’ll find out about the other one. Knowing I at least need a new head, pistons and cylinder (and probably a camshaft?), I feel like finding a used engine and salvaging those parts would be the cheapest way to go. I’m also tempted to go with a set of 6 ...

The Quarantine Vair

Hey all, I drove this beauty through my junior and senior years of high school until I lost compression in half the engine. I since have gone away for college and she’s been sitting. Corona has sent me home and kept me here which means it’s time to get back to work. IMG_0936.JPG 60652700393__969C0BB...

Ignition Help Needed

Good Afternoon, I am looking for some advice as to what I did wrong in setting up my ignition coil/module. Recently, I replaced what I thought to be a broken ignition module, however, this was not the case. The owner before me had an XR3000 installed and in order to bypass the resistor, decided that...

Re: My (Noah's) '64 Corvair in Dallas

Thank you! I will work on building those relationships, currently, I know a mechanic, he is willing to help me out a lot and actually is excited to get such an amazing car in there. I will inspect the conditions of the oil leak, and that is good news, because I would obviously like to keep it as ori...
