UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED?
A couple of interviews with Corvair owners at the South 71 Cruiser's Cruise Night event this month. Lots of other cars there, but the Corvairs seemed like an interesting topic to record.

Adjusting Corvair valves is a snap!
An easy way to adjust Chevy Corvair valves without making a big mess: split a stock valve cover in half, that will catch the oil ( if you need a used valve cover, check our website www.rafeecorvair.com under used parts, we have them in stock, as well as many other gaskets to finish the job) ....If you are doing a maintenance valve adjustment, install your oil catchers on both sides, let the engine warm up, and starting at either end, loosen the nut until the rocker arm starts clattering/ knocking/ ticking (LOL), let it do its thing for several seconds, then re-tighten til the noise quiets down, stop and then go 1/4 turn more. Some even go 1/2 turn to 3/4 turn. Myself, I do 1/4 turn to 1/2 turn and it works. If the engine is new, you can do this 2 different ways: cold, as outlined in the shop manual, or with the engine running, as I prefer. Make sure all the rocker arms are tightened, but leave some small amount of play between the valve stems and the rocker arm tips, so the lifters can pump up. I want to explain this the easiest way that I can, not too technical, so everybody can follow. If the engine is new, I normally let it run for 20 to 30 mn, I want this baby to be hot, so the lifters can pump up ./ fill with oil. Then I start tightening 1 rocker arm at a time, starting at either end. Just take the clatter/ knocking away, and no more. When you are done doing all that to the 12 rocker arms, now you are gonna adjust one at a time, by loosening each one, let the clatter/ knocking come back for several seconds, and tighten til it quiets down. Then go 1/4 turn more. Repeat the process til all are done, and VOILA! I told you it was easy.....If you run into any problems, don't hesitate to call Rafman at 918-753-2486. Happy to be at your service!

1965 Corvair Monza Convertible
Really nice, sporty car! Perfect paint and interior. As you look at the dash, you see the transmission quadrant selector lever for the two speed Powerglide transmission. Chrysler Corporation tried that dash selector lever for the 1955 model year, then went to pushbuttons until 1965 when they reverted to a conventional shift lever on the steering column. Air cooled flat configured six cylinder engine. I think the car would have stayed around longer had it not had such competition from the new Mustang. Notice the extra supply of fan belts..early Corvairs were noted for throwing a belt on occasion.
