The Results Are In!

The Corvair is running great! I took it to work today and the car is running great. No wierd hesitation, no knocking, no funny noises from the engine compartment, and I can see how fast I'm going. I'm looking forward to doing many drives in the near future.

The next big thing will be paint. As I mentioned before, I'm not going crazy on the paint job yet. I'll get a moderate job on it and see how it goes. I may want to have some more body work done before I go crazy with a paint job.

New Harmonic Balancer in!

Well, the new harmonic balancer is in the car. I have not had a chance to give the Corvair a real test drive, but I will. I also had a new Viton seal put in by the crankshaft and had the speedometer finally installed.

With the new pressure retard unit, I had to have the carb adjusted. The car was just running too rich. Hopefully the bugs are mostly out. I should know more tomorrow when I take it out for a real drive!
