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.

Corvair Engine for EFI Testing
This is a motor/Dff/Trans I picked up in GA this weekend for EFI testing.
A couple of carbs later and a little tickering, its running fine. I have
since adjusted the valves and its running fine. I will not convert this to
EFI and make it my test stand to test all components before ship
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.

It is a kick start only and still runs great.

1964 Chevrolet Corvair 110 HP engine, rebuilt at Rafee Corvair, with alternator conversion,sweeT!
Another awesome rebuilt completed here at Rafee Corvair: this 1964 got
upgraded with a 260 Isky cam, .030 oversized pistons, another up grade was
the addition of external alternator with internal regulator, to replace the
old, bulky generator....many folks wonder about the advantages of replacing
the stock generator by an alternator: well, let me tell you: 1, you get rid
of the bulky generator; 2, you get rid of the voltage regulator in the
firewall; 3, the alternator comes with an internal regulator and is a 65
amp, therefore generating more juice for your headlights, stereo, and other
electrical goodies that you like to add to your ride....The conversion kit
is available at www.rafeecorvair.com, along with a tutorial in the "tech
tips" section on the install. The kit comes complete ...a one-time
investment, well worth it! You can easily install it yourself, Rafman will
gladly walk you through it if you need additional help. Just call me at
918-753-2486 with any questions you might have. Keep them rolling, peace
