Setting the idle in a Corvair!
setting the idle in this engine, a 110 HP with a 270 Isky cam...normally, I set the idle at around 6 to 700 RPM; when the chokes kick in, I set it to around 1100 RPM. It might vary depending on the size of the cam you are using, and personal preference. With this engine, I am running a dual Exhaust system, the RPM is a little lower so I can hear the rumble. For more info, don' t forget to refer to your shop manual, or give me a holler, I will be glad to help you out to get your ride going.
1964 Corvair Spyder Cold Start
Starting my 1964 Corvair Spyder after it had been put away for the winter
Corvair 64 110 HP, slightly tricked out with oversized pistons !
Just got done with another engine rebuild here in the shop at Rafee Corvair. What I did for this 64 110 HP, I can do for your Vair: it is slightly modified with a 260 Isky cam, oversized forged pistons, re-jetted carburetors for better performance. If you need some help with your project, would it be rebuilding services or parts, don't forget to check me out, I can hook you up with the deals. Peace out !
