Re: The Quarantine Vair

Wow very nice score!!!!
Maybe spray some penetrating oil around the cylinders and let them sit for a day or so? A little heat from a torch? Heat the aluminum (it expands faster). Be careful not to catch the place on fire. :extinguisher:

Re: Clarks Package Area Cardboard

Mine wasn't screwed down but I don't know if that is how they came from the factory. :dontknow: I guess I'm not too much help. I removed the cardboard, added sound deadening and carpet. https://www.corvairforum.com/forum/download/file.php?id=3959&t=1 https://www.corvairforum.com/forum/download/file....

Re: Replacing engine fan bearing question

The pulley should just come right off after you remove the four bolts. You may have to tap it with a rubber mallet to jar it loose?

Re: The Quarantine Vair

Rebuilding it with all new parts is best but pricey! You may just luck out and find a local running motor you can drop in or salvage parts from. Keep up the search.

Scott, sent you a PM.
Messaged you back and emailed you. Basically the same message on both. The Security provider is making "tweaks" and want you to try it again to see if its resolved.

I saw that too. That’s a bummer.

If you need parts in that time try Raffee Corvair. I just got some parts from him today.
