the corvair engine runns the wrong way round so you have to do a bit of engine work like cam and i think con rods but it all comes in a kit if you wont it to.

Regarding engine types you lot are all heathens and should be SHOT.................. i thought you were all suposed to be VW enthusiasts and i was the un couth heathen for cutting up vws.............................. how wrong was i if you want stock ish parts and super performance you need an.....................................................................................
Go on guess.............................................................................

Ordered a pair of these this afternoon. Got them at a great price by buying them in the US and getting them delivered to my US bosses address. He's going to bring them over with him, or get someone who is already over there from our office to bring them back.

I'd already looked at those, not very good quality stuff.
I was going to bring in 4 or 5 kits but was advised not to waste my money.

I went and got the tyres mounted on the wheels this morning. No pics of them though as they aren't on the bus yet. The studs on the front adaptors need changing to longer ones, as I'm not happy the nuts have enought thread in them when they're done up at the moment.
I did however also get round to fitting up the exhaust.
So, I started with this.


Offered it all up and did the bolts up finger tight on everything.


Did have one issue getting a clamp on but managed to sort it out.

Checked for clearance on the exhaust, think it'll be ok, might have to 'trim' the bottom of one of the over-riders depending if it rattles.




With having a tatty paintjob etc it didn't cause too much problem when I found that the lower rear valance fouled the new muffler box, so I just used a g-cramp on it to bend it out to clear.


All bolted back together.




Well, almost. I ran out of time to put the bolts back in to hold the splash-pans to the bodywork, and I managed to cross thread one of the bumper iron bolts too, hopefully it will just be a case of chasing it through with a tap and replacing the bolt.
