1969 Corvair Badass!
1969 smog Chevrolet Corvair: this ride went through a makeover here at
Rafee Corvair in the Heartland, we upgraded the engine with a 260 cam,
.040 custom made forged pistons; we plugged the cumbersome smog system,
but left it in place for originality at shows. I don't know about you guys,
but to me, the smog system was not a good idea, and stock Corvairs lacked
power! If it wasn't for the mods that I do to these rides, I probably
wouldn't mess with them.....Don't take me wrong, I dig the body style of
both earlies and late, it is just the power issue that needs to be
addressed. Now, after my work, this ride runs the way it is supposed to,
glides smoothly and has plenty of power! It can easily cruise at 80 MPH,
awesome for a 2-speed powerglide! If your ride is ready for an overhaul,
don't hesitate to call me at 918-753-2486 with any questions you might
have, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep them rolling, Peace out!

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.
