Re: Help on how to remove ....

I use a door panel puller tool. It works great. Note: I have heard that the 65 metal retainers sometimes come loose and can be "eaten" by the fan. Not good. Many people use the 66-69 plastic retainers for that reason. Those plastic retainers often get destroyed when removing so get a few extras. Sen...

Be sure to get a factory assembly manual. It will be your best friend during your build.

Your radio faceplate you made looks great! Can't wait to see the finished product. Keep up the good work and share a pi...

Re: Connecting Rod Removal

Be sure to keep each cap with their associated rod. I usually put the nuts on partially to keep the "set" together

Re: Dropped valve?

Quick trick...get a low compression reading. Squirt about a tablespoon of engine ppl in the plug hole and do another reading. If the compression goes up. It is a ring problem. If it stays low. It I a valve issue. I worked at a vair shop with about 20 unknown used engines. That test gave correct diag...

Install another plastic washer to space the switch down. I went through 3 switches before I discovered this.

Re: OPGI Catalog Delayed

We are programing the crossover parts right now. The parts that we already carry from other car lines. This will take a while as there are over 1500 of them. After that, we will start programing the corvair specific parts. There are over 8000 parts to program so it will take a while. But.... We are ...

Bicycle rack for rear doors of a van

I just heard that my girlfriend is getting a bike for Christmas from her kids. I have a 64 greenbrier, she has a mercury sable wagon. Does anyone have experience with a bike rack that straps to the back doors of a van? I know, it will make getting into the back a pain. A roof rack would be best but ...
