I’m very interested in finding out why our 1966 Corvair stalled on the way to work about a week ago. According to this article, stalling and poor performance may be due to carburetor problems.
Sooner or later, the Corvair owner will need to clean or maintain the 2 or 4 carbs on their engine. Even [though] these carbs are basic when compared to carbs 15-20 years later, they still require tuning or cleaning. To ignore this chore is to want idle problems or acceleration issues that may suddenly, and without warning, stall you at a major intersection or worse, cause an accident because the acceleration put you in Harm’s Way suddenly.
I’ve taken a few days off work and am hoping to replace my old carbs with two rebuilds I purchased from an eBay seller. I will keep you posted a to how that turns out.
