Re: 4 Carb Linkage 140 Motor Progress

Finally sorted out this 4 carb linkage! I was a clueless novice about the parts I was missing or how it worked, but I sure know now.

Joefarmer-Dave is a celebrity of his own making on YouTube! I've learned a bunch from him too. He has a lot of damn tools and Corvair experience. He was born pretty close to a Corvair.

Agreed! By the way, I'm diggin the 'blue on black' paint scheme you've got going on. What made you decide to go that direction?

Well, I had Chevy SIX CYLINDER blue industrial strength paint. The black is also industrial strength gloss and flat shades. Glad you like it. Some of the parts in my collection were already painted red and yellow a long time ago, so I clean and sand them for blue or black. It's grown on me.

Hey Alan, been lurking around this post, and finally got the nerve the reply. Depending on which CHT gauge you go with, an aircraft thermocouple will work great. I am going to run a Stewart Warner HD CHT, because that is what the PO had in mine, and i found out that this particular gauge uses a "k" type thermocouple, and is very avail., and cheap from Aircraft Spruce Co.

Maybe this helps, you...or someone.

Great job on the build!!! Gives me inspiration on my 140 build. BTW, what cam did you choose for this build?

Hi ViewMaster, Thanks for the temperature gauge information and source. I'll check it out. I've had to slow up on my build a little the last couple of weeks due to other responsibilities (home, kids, work), but really hope to have compression check numbers this weekend. I went bold and will take my chances on the 1965 Corsa camshaft, 3839891,that was in the motor, it just looked too good. Not sure if it's stock or regrind. But someone in the past had put a lot of effort into the reconditioning of the internal parts. Thanks for the great comments! :tu:

Black 1985 CA Plates-140 Motor Progress

Unread post by GasDaddy140 » Thu Apr 27, 2017 6:32 pm

Hi, just sharing a little about my original black CA plates, I'm pretty sure that I found them piled into the car's interior. Title matches them up. Registration was paid up until 2/1985. What a heap I got my hands on! Lucky me. I suspect that the car was being a bit cared for still then. They're pictured uncleaned just like they'll stay on my daughter's wall. The plates are pretty heavy. My new white CA plates are very lightweight in comparison. I suspect that the prisons transitioned to lighter materials so that the prisoners good handle more of them in less time, for higher profits and stuff. Anyway, as I touched and handled them I could feel 1965 and beyond dirt and stuff, from the roads outside the prisons. Of course my car wasn't running in 2015 with it's new white plates. And neither was that Sears snow-blower, vintage mini bike engine leaking oil. But I'm putting a large effort into it this year. Not the little engine though, it seized bad awhile back. :chevy:
