I bolted some old BMW sports seats I had laying around into the Corvair. It feels like a totally different car.
Because the seats felt so solid and the car was running good, I decided to get on it a bit. As I revved out 2nd gear I felt a bit of a stumble. I looked behind me to see smoke pouring out the back. I thought I had fucked a piston, but it turned out the dipstick just shot out and sprayed a ton of oil everywhere. A bunch fell under the fan and was squirting out near the cylinder head which scared the shit out of me.
I also think I found why it's putters a bit when cold. It seems the choke arm is missing from the driver's side carb. I'm going to see if I can remedy it with a zip tie.
