Sweets Auction February 23rd:
Another great year for MCC's annual Sweets Auction! Many crafts, baked goods, parts, and memorabilia were auctioned off. The auction raised over $260 for MCC. Special thanks to Auctioneer Wayne and his family for donating some baked goods and helping run the auction. The Chocolate Caramel squares were delicious! Any event pictures would be highly apprecieated.
Corvair Tech sessions:
October Tech session was tear down of the head assembly on a 140 motor. This covered everything from engine pulled from car forward. This includes carburetor removal, cooling system removal, and fan assembly removal.
December Tech Session Topics: Starter tear down and failure analysis, and block split tear down and failure analysis of a 95 motor. For the starter, the effects of overheating on the stator assembly were observed. For comparison a working starter was disassembled. Due to excess heat, the winding coating flowed out in the failed starter. Also shown is the nose cone and mounting differences between the 60-62 starter vs. the later version.
In tear down of the 95 motor, it was observed that the oil was burnt and galley ways were sludged. This correlates to the excess bearing wear, cam lobe wear, lifter deformation, and excessive sludge in the oil pan. Also found were a loose washer in the oil pan as well as metal bits in the oil pickup and parts of a piston ring. This engine is destined for a date with the recycling plant. The oil galley assembly is about all that will be reused. If anyone wants parts from it, contact Curtis. And remember to change your oil!
January session: Everything carburetor. This includes common failure points such as excessive play in linkages, warped surfaces, and proper adjustments. Also covered were tricks for fixing linkages as well as preventative changes for better reliability. Thank you Roger for taking the time to go through all of this. We all learned a lot!
February session: Front End disassembly
Tom Clemens was picking up a front end for a '64 for parts to convert to self-adjusting front brakes. So we decided to take the rest of the front end apart while we had it on the bench... This must have spent some time in the mud! There was major structural rust issues as well as moving parts that weren't moving as well as they should have. Overall, this front end was no longer ready for autocross...
