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.

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 !
Harley with a Chevy Corvair engine is a Kick
A Harley without an engine and an air cooled corvair engine. Could I make
them fit together? I built this one of a kind motorcycle over 15 years ago.
It is a kick start only and still runs great.

Vintage: The Chevrolet Corvair | Drive it!
In 1959 the Corvair became the first rear-engine production car made in
America - and Chevrolet's answer to the VW Bug. By American standards, the
Corvair was very small (4.50 meters long) and unusually light (weighing
around 11 hundred kilos). Drive it! discovered a number of specimens of
what is a very rare American in Europe. More Information:

is the cause of the sound you hear in this engine??? To be honest, it took

fixed. Whooo-hoooo!!! If you are experiencing any mechanical problems with
your Corvair, don't hesitate to Rafee a holler at 918-753-2486. Keep them
