Re: Pro Series Distributor

I ran the car today with the vacuum advance off the distributor and the vacuum line plugged. It had very little surging and ran better at higher rpm's. It appears as if I need to replace the distributor and will probably go with the stinger unit based on the last post by brodie52. There is a lot of ...

Re: Pro Series Distributor

The plate on the distributor moves easily when the engine is not running. The vacuum canister seems to work well but can't move the plate when suck on it or when the engine sucks on it while connected to the plate. I will continue checking to find the problem. The canister is relatively new. The pla...

Re: Pro Series Distributor

I was able to check my distributor plate today. I could not get it to move while sucking on the vacuum line. I hooked the vacuum line up and increased engine speed and there was no movement. The vacuum at the increased speed was about 12 to 13 pounds. Elevation is 4500 where I live. I pried the vacu...

Re: Pro Series Distributor

The stinger distributor requires a electronic box outside the the distributor. The pro series does not require an external box. I am thinking about replacing the plate in the distributor but would need to check the distributor to see that it is in good shape. I find it unusual that a distributor wou...

Re: Pro Series Destributor

A pro series distributor is an electronic distributor that cost $130.00 listed as a R2R on a number of sites on the net.It does not require a secondary electronic box. Can't seem to find anyone that has purchased one for a corvair. Just looking for someone that has tried one. Larry

Re: Pro Series Destributor

The harmonic balancer looks good. The carbs are not leaking nor can I find a vacuum leak. The secondary carbs are closing all the way. I am using points as my crane 700 failed. I replaced the coil at the stock location as it failed. The vacuum advance line is connected to the right rear carb upright...

Re: Pro Series Destributor

Thanks for the info. I have the-carb version and having trouble with surging. I can't find a vacuum leak and have checked the float level in the carbs. I have the timing advanced about .75 inches past the end of the timing marks. This has helped with the surging at 2000 rpm in first and second. I ha...

Re: Corsa Speedometer

The odometer on my corsa is not working and I thought i could replace it with a monza speedometer. Either that or take the parts from a good monza speedometer and fix my corsa. I didn't want to spend $200.00 to get my repaired but I may have to. Still looking at options. I need to check to see if th...

Re: Idler Arm

Clark was out of the idler arms. my pitman arm bushing is in good shape. I found that an idler arm off a 66 corvette has a heavier casting. The distance between the pins is the same and the taper on the pin in the linkage is the same. I made minor modifications to the arm that bolts to the body and ...

Idler Arm

An alignment shop recommended I replace my idler arm on my 65 corsa and decided to mill the top off of the end that attaches to the linkage. I expected to find a roller bearing where the tapered pin rides. I found a rubber washer a thin steel plate and a slotted steel bushing that the tapered pin ri...
