Every flying Corvair needs four pieces of cooling sheet metal that came from the factory. These pieces are the two under-cylinder baffles, and the two end plates on the firewall end of the engine that go between cylinder #1 and the distributor and on the other side between cylinder #2 and the oil cooler. These four pieces of sheet metal are just as vital to the engine’s cooling as a radiator hose is to a liquid cooled engine.
Because a lot of engines have very filthy or rusty metal, we have decided to make sets available to builders. They are very time consuming to clean, even if you have a blasting cabinet. I took a large collection of these pieces to our powder coating guy, and let him professionally blast them, and then powder coat them matte black.
They are not required to be powdercoated on your flight engine, but getting a set from us does save some time, and they look very nice, a good compliment to a sharp looking engine. We are selling these sets for $99 plus your old parts by check or money order payable to William Wynne, 5000-18 US HWY 17 #247, Orange Park, FL 32003. If your core came without, please send us $120.
Please email us at WilliamTCA@aol.com to let us know they’re on the way. We’ll reserve a set for you.
As an introductory offer, we are going to cover the shipping of our parts to anywhere in the U.S. We will do this through the first 10 sets in the shop.
Above, the two end baffles in the bag, the two under-cylinder baffles are below them. All of the parts are powdercoated matte black.
Above, 14 sets of under-cylinder baffles ready to be sent as part of the four piece cooling sheet metal sets. In the background, freshly done powdercoated Valve Cover Sets.
Valve Cover Sets are available for shipping in the U.S. for $159 by sending a check payable to William Wynne with your old valve covers to 5000-18 US HWY 17 #247, Orange Park, FL 32003.
