The axle and the transmission have different fill holes but it is my understanding that there is a passage between them. The axle has a dip stick. I had to drain the transmission oil because the switch is on the bottom of the transmission. The dip stick showed that the axle was a little over full. When I removed the fill plug for the axle a very small amount of oil came out. The dip stick still shows a little over full. I will try to remember that.

I see, now, what you folks were telling me about the Corvair being a different animal. I see that there will be a long learning curve with this car. Fortunately, I have a friend who is familiar with Corvairs. That, along with all the knowledge here, I will get it figured out.

Thanks, Pete

You’ll find the Corvair technology to be unique, when compared to other GM products.
The good news is the fact assistance is not far way.

You’ll enjoy the 140 / 4 speed as you cruise highways and back roads, as well.

A couple of thoughts, Piddler.

Corvairs had rust issues, as did any other car.

With Corvair converts, the rust / lack of structural support initiated in the cowl / firewall area.

With top down and parked on level concrete pavement, open and close the doors.

If the doors latch as well with top down, as when top is up and secured, the support in the unibody is stable.

Another area prone to catch water / rust is within the front crossmember.

Use a ball peen hammer or such to tap on underside of front crossmember to determine if crossmember is solid and not “a mushy feel”, when the crossmember is tapped with a hammer.

Best of luck and good adventures !
