I'll have to confess something...
I've been mostly hanging out on CCF but since it's been down, I've read a few VV digests. I'm going into Corvair discussion withdrawal.
Great discussions here regarding CORSA membership/convention attendance and Karls rant about the Saturn folks trying to organize. Probably much like our guys were back in 1969/1970 but they didn't have the technology at their disposal that we do now.
FC Engine question...
I am working on a 63 Rampside with a Franken-motor (engine). It has the original(?) truck engine block but 140hp heads, LM cooling fan and 12-plate oil cooler. Whomever put it together seemed to have a pretty good idea what they were doing. It runs pretty well now that I have matching carbs on it (secondaries are blocked). I'm still chasing a charging system problem but here is my question. This engine has a solid crank pulley. Should it have a harmonic balancer? I don't know anything else about the engine internals.
Jefferson City, MO
65 Monza Convertible (110/PG)
66 Corsa Coupe (140/4 - 28,000 original miles)
