My earlier reply to VV and Jim Becker ended with "??" which was unintentional.  Thanks Jim with no added question marks.
I will also miss seeing Dan and Monique (usually at the annual Virginia Vair Fair--if you haven't gone yet you should).  Dan's rebuilt parts were reasonable priced and the ones I purchased are still holding up well.

Man, I am so sorry to hear of his passing.  I thoroughly enjoyed his unique
personality and his vast knowledge of the Corvair world.  I bought from him
and Monique several times in Helen, GA and was always pleased with my

Another Corvair treasure lost.  Condolences to Monique.

With a total weight of 460# or so, the weight of various bolt-ons isn't 
going to move the center of balance very much.? The starter is forward of 
the balance point with the others mentioned behind it.? They tend to cancel 
each other out.? The biggest difference would probably come from which 
transmission is attached and whether a generator for an early model is in 
place of not.

The big lifting point on the top/front of the bell housing is the 
approximate balance point if an early model rear crossmember and suspension 
is also attached.
