Back when i first got this Corvair running, I needed the carbs rebuilt. I wasn’t afraid to do them myself, but I wanted them to be aesthetically pleasing. Problem is, I don’t have any sort of good way to do that. I also don’t have the ability (that I know of) to make the tops gold like they were originally. So, I had Custom Rebuilt Carbs do them. They’ve done carbs for me in the past that came out great. Since the moment i got them back i had issues. Mainly, that raw gas was pouring out of my exhaust. After checking everything I realized that yet again in my life, it wasn’t me, it was them. I brought the right carb back in and was met with advice that the fuel pressure was probably too high, or dirt was getting in somewhere, but I had checked and the fuel pressure was 4psi on the nose, and the entire fuel system was new so no dirt. Finally, they confirmed that the float was taking on fuel. Even still, the car idled and ran fine, but had a very noticeable flat spot during “passing” situations. After a year of not wanting to be involved and just wanting to drive the damn thing I opened them up, and this is what I found. The pump was gross, and looked old. The holes for the pump, two very, very small holes, were completely clogged with old brown varnish. I frayed a motorcycle brake cable and ran it through. Fixed. Now it runs well with no flat or dead spot at all.
Google decided to delete half of my content for no reason at all. I pay them for 100gigs of storage and yet my images are gone. So as soon as I figure out how, I will try to restore some of my most popular posts. Until then, everything after 2013 has survived and transferred here.

New speaker installation coming soon.
These dont make the cut.
4″ hole saw should do the trick. Doors are rusty as can be anyway. I got some 4″ foam baffles to hopefully insulate them from the elements.
34$ 30″ Amazon Fishtails.
Kromeworks 12″ Baffles (which basically do nothing.)
DEI header wrap.
I reused the accuseal clamps that came of the factory mufflers.
Really all I had to do was kick one pipe over a bit so I could overlap and stagger them.
Orange is the new black has no fucking idea what diabetes is. The writers there have no idea what it is, how it works, how insulin works, how food works, they really know nothing. Seriously, if we portrayed any other minority with that much inaccuracy they’d have the show shut boycotted. I actually really enjoy the show, but stop being fucking ignorant as fuck when it comes to diabetes.
Meanwhile google “OITNB Diabetes” and the only goddamned thing that comes up is how Boo lost 50 fucking lbs. Yep, thats diabetes for ya! lol gtfo
That is all.

A feint rattle became a monstrous knocking, and thats when I knew it was time to buy a bolted flywheel from Clarks
. So out with the powerpack.
After it was out and I was awaiting parts I removed all the old rubber engine to body seals. Best way I found was to lightly grind all the staples. When the parts arrived I riveted the new seals in.
The old clutch was oil covered and was worn through the rivets. Strange though, the car drove fine. The pressure-plate has stress fractures in it and the flywheel was extremely loose.
Found this beauty while inspecting the transmission for a slight second gear grind.
Clarks sent the wrong pressure plate and so I’m still waiting. They are making good on it though.
