Need plans for/or corv8 input shaft and adapter

Unread post by Jim Hepler » Thu Oct 19, 2017 1:37 am

I need the plans for building the corv 8 input assembly or what input shaft to use or a shaft and adapter. I have a complete machine shop and even broken parts will help. Even pictures would be helpful.

There was a Corv-8 book published in early 2000s.
I think it was s history and tech guide. What you are looking for may be in that book.
If someone on the V8 registry still has their Crown manual the information should be there as well. Good hunting!

Update. I found loads of info on the V8 registry. They’ve even published a copy of the Crown manual and the BPs of the subframe!

You should look for Mike Levine. He is the Crown Corv8 guru. He lurks on the other forum as V8vair and on the Corvair Racers page on Facebook. He has a lot of stuff and knows what has to be done.
