and i thought i was the only one that got treated that way
This is very strange, that engine was based on an actual aircraft engine. Working on air craft you do still get dirty, but not greasy. I rebuilt the engine I used and there was no oil leakage. I used a trick I learned while building a British bike. Where ever you have gaskets assemble with 3M weather strip adhesive. It holds the gaskets in place while you are torquing the piece down. None of my rebuilds ever leaked oil.
my brotherinlaw had a black spyder turbo charged 4 sp, had a big spyder on the hood
i don't know who took credit for that engine
The only main difference between Corvair and aircraft engines was the stroke and the Corvair had a flat oil pan on the bottom.
Continental and Lycoming had strokes that were fairly long and limited the maximum rpm the engine could turn. The high compression generated is why they have such crazy high Octane fuels. Older radial air craft engines had low compression and could easily run off of regular gas. 8:1 ratios were common.
finally got this one in, its my last nova to build, a 72, this is the one with the 540 and a 4 sp, sold it to a young couple in sagnaw,tx 4 years ago
This brings back memories of tearing the sheet metal and red lead seams in the quarter panels of the old Camaro because the unibody couldn't handle the torque of the big block with 513 gears. Needless to say I should have addressed that problem and never sold the 67 RS/SS.
yea i wish i still had mine,i'm looking for another one
