henryn, Your not my old neighbor are you? I had a neighbor back in the 60ties that was always working on those Corvairs every weekend he'd have those trunk/hoods open cranking wrenches. I met the President of the Corvair Clubs this past summer at a gas station and he had a Covair Monza Convert. MINT & O-A-BUTE Just a FYI, Yes I can crack a wrench as good as the next guy... Just wasn't good @ Carbs

The Plain Facts, Dealer want to SELL units. Get the Mh in and SELL it ASAP. The RV industry is like the Marine industry. When you purchase the MH and leave the lot the dealer couldn't care less. And the MH MFG don't care either. one major MFG who sells units from 100 to 400 thousand dollars refuses to sell owners any replacement parts. I had a simple windshield wiper -washer switch go bad. The MFG said go to one of their dealers. 1st dealer wanted $280 bucks. 2nd dealer said schedule an appointment where you purchased the unit, but part would be maybe 400 dollars. Finally I got a switch. Interestingly the MFG wouldn't even tell me who actually MFG the switch. Well I found the company and the switch was $40.00. MFG's should be ashamed of the poor service owners get. Safe travels... ed

I don't think so.Grew up on Long Island NY. I had belonged to a car club( about six of us) and did demolition derby and 1/4 mile track at National speedway track. that was when I was young and foolish. .Now let the professionals service my vehicles. Still have my sears torque wrench from the 60's. stay warm and dry. Maybe see you on the road

Henryn,

Yeah, I had a Triumph TR-3 with those crazy SU carbs. There was actually a tool called Uni-Syn (I think) to help you synch them. Ha! It was just another time.

I always wanted a Monza. That 2nd generation Corvair was a sweet looking vehicle. But then, I always thought the '53 Studebaker Skyliner and the '62-63 Studebaker Avanti were two other of the sweetest looking cars. Oops, i don't mean to hi-jack the thread.
