Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

That would be an awesome fuel pump. It seems to me they can put a man on the moon then.........
Come to think about it, what type of fuel pumps do they use in airplanes that utilize Corvair engines? I am sure it has to be more reliable.

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

Wow! That's all very interesting Ted. I have been discouraged at using electronic ignition by old timers in the past but having been a Harley person for all my life I can say electronic ignition is better for me than points. I was told recently Chrysler ignition works well in Corvairs. Of course as ...

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

All very interesting. Good luck with your build. Thanks for the input on my wheel set up (to be). I think I will pop on these wheels and tires. I called VTO yesterday and they gave me a 10% discount. We had an interesting conversation where he said I would have "plenty" of room in the fenders with t...

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

As far as the rubbing is concerned-and since the VTO Retro 4's I like are the same width as stock-it seems like it would come down to back spacing. Correct? Ted says tire width is the determinate on rubbing. Little confusing (but I have come a long way) So is there a best size tire that alleviates t...

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

I like the ones I have found with Teds help so far but the Ansen's are certainly cool-classic. The only thing about polished aluminum is the redundancy. On the other hand, I wonder if completely blacked out wheels are to much for my white Monza.....but its great to have choices! Thanks Dudes :ty:

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

These are very cool and since they are a bit smaller in width maybe they would be better.......?

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

Actually, those are pretty cool Ted! Hmmmmm I'm really liking those. Do they fit perfectly? If they do-there might be another Corvair with those running down the road!!!

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

Or Teach a Guy to Fish, how do you search for the right wheels. At this point I would buy any rims that look remotely like I want. It would be great to get non-"disco" black rims that would fit with the right bolt pattern and back space. It would be nice to get 14 or 15 inch to open my tire options ...

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

Man O Man I can't find 13×6 Ansen sprints I looked again and they were 15". Does anyone know where to find 13×6 Ansen sprints. Here is the closest thing I could find and they are wrong? https://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?gclid=CjwKCAjwtNf6BRAwEiwAkt6UQqcdqjY-FAoI8uUQs6TFBrJiIbahXplP...

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

Powder coating the Ansen Sprint would be a great idea but more $$$

Re: The Age old Early Model wheel Question

Wheel bearings are cheap and I like these wheels. I don't think cosmetically they would protrude?!?
Would they rub in any way?
