It's baa--aa--ck! While Kendra still hasn't tagged the Corvair, she's been playing with it around the neighborhood. A few weeks ago, She mentioned that it had an oil leak. I said I'd take care of it (while cringing), but as I suspected (so far at least), it appears to only be the oil pan gasket. FWIW, the oil pan is an after market deep sump and is cast aluminum rather than the original sheet metal. I assembled it with a stock cork gasket, and because of the cork, I didn't use any sealer other than small dabs where the block halves meet and auxiliary case mounting. Because of the expanding and contracting, I found all of the pan bolts relatively loose. Rather than just tightening, I removed the pan and gasket, cleaned both well, and used gasket cement between the pan and gasket, and I will coat the top of the gasket before installing it back to the block. I also plan to seal each of the bolts with silicone as I put them in the holes and I will re-torque it after some run time. Dennis
ASLO: she is now talking about SELLING it!!! Her oldest is in college, and her second one is looking at starting in the fall, so she is thinking "need the money, not the "money pit". We'll see what happens. I know I'm not buying it. Dennis
