Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

:goodpost: OK, then since I plugged the correct vertical unused vacuum port on the driver's side, then I will turn both gas/fuel mixture to 1 1/2 turns out and go from there. What you say makes great sense and described my situation. I only asked my question after I put a cap on that found unused ve...

Re: storage area in back of back seat

The space behind the back seat is senseless and not worth using for the trouble it takes to get there and then to close it up and flip the seat back. Wouldn't be so bad if the heavy cardboard veneer sheet wasn't molded and had to be tucked and fitted each time you pulled it and reinstalled it. I did...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

When I set my carb chokes with my gas pedal and start the car, it starts right up. After it warms up and I throttle it, the chokes release and it idles low and stalls if I don't milk the gas pedal. But it runs really nice and smooth on Choke. I checked the fuel/air mixture screws and they are both o...

OK, just took fresh photos of my beauty sitting in the Florida sun after finishing the headlight system!!! These are for my 'sale ads' also for $3000.

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

I finally looked under that rear of my car and located the two air engine vents. They're cool looking like that on the front sides of a stealth fight LOL... I took my fingers and found the passenger side springy and workable, but, the drivers side was a bit stiffer and not so springy. Are these easy...

Re: Where can I get a Corvair?

I wouldn't recommend anything older than a 64' if you want a safe driving car. The 64' models had a lot of the bad bugs removed and was far from Nader's nasty book. I love my 64' Monza Coupe 900, but, am tempted to sell it to buy the 1965 model because I'm a big Camaro fan and I think the 1965 model...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

I found nice 2" tapered Phillips head screws and washers and lock washer to lock the nuts in place. I had to trim about 1 1/2" off the scew to make them the perfect size and they snugged them springs down nicely. I slipped the bucket gaskets on and all holes lined up great and stuck the buckets in p...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

The plugs may be fine just check that the reach is correct to be sure. Yes, I did check the reach, or length and it was identical to the original AC plugs I pulled. Also can someone please tell me or send me a link on the subject of > How do you install the new springs in the headlight buckets? My ...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

I hear what you are saying but it came up when they were cross referencing the original plugs and if it was dangerous or a risk for the engine, he would have told me. I always listen to my engines and don't think they are hotter as much as there's more contact points for ignition. And yes, we may no...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

Advice for anyone having an engine that just don't want to run right or maybe won't idle right. I had a buddy that owns his own automotive shop but refuses to work on Corvair engines ( specifically balancing the carbs LOL ) suggest and bring me the spark plugs!!! The plugs are E3.46 for $7 each! I w...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

Yes, I've seen the black rubber funnel looking item and the hose seems to be standard 3/16 fuel line. I guess I expected there to be a clip to hold the funnel in place but maybe it just pulls through and locks into place and the clips are to route the hose inside the fender lip. The Corvette uses th...

Well. I'm not finding anything related to Corvair fuel overflow relief drains or hoses except under Corvette 1965 and up and nothing you described. I couldn't find it in Clark's online catalog either. If you find a link. please share it. You have the Clark's paper catalog? If not you need one. Yes,...

Re: My 1964 Corvair Monza Record Of Improvements

OK, I just found something I never saw before! I went out to day dream about my new 15" aluminum slots and I noticed these notches. Is this notch in the rear 'A' arms/suspension normal?? Here are a few photos. IF it's not normal, the only reason I feels someone did this was for wide 13/14's and tire...
