WW Corvair Engines For Sale
Completely Rebuilt And Test Run At Our Shop
Over the years, we’ve built more than 100 high quality production engines for builders who opted to buy the finished product from us. As a policy, every one of these engines are test run and broken in on our run stand. A review of our FlyCorvair.com and FlyCorvair.net Web sites will show photos of dozens of engines we’ve built that are now flying. Our great experience with Corvairs, our use of only the highest quality parts and the test runs have given us a spotless track record with production engines. This record makes it easy to stand behind engines we’ve built. These engines are fully remanufactured, and converted for aircraft duty. People who have selected our engines, installed them on their aircraft and operated them as we recommend have had to do no work other than regular oil changes and spark plug replacement at 200 hour intervals. The TBO on the engines is 1,500 hrs.
Many people who have selected a production engine still opt to attend the Colleges to get to know the inside of their Corvair engine. I encourage this because education has always been our primary work, and an educated Corvair pilot will be a better owner and operator.
To get started, please review this story, as it has the most up to date information on the process of ordering a complete engine for your plane:
Outlook 2016, Ordering a Completed Engine.
All of the engines we build are completely overhauled and modified with state of the art components made in the USA. Our engines are built on the readily available Weseman 5th bearing. There are other options like a Weseman billet crank, which adds about $1,500 to the cost of an engine. We are glad to include any proven option on your engine.
All of the engines have forged pistons, and the larger displacements have new cylinders. (The 2775 cylinders are re-bored GM originals.) They have forged rods with ARP bolts, harmonic balancers and high volume oil pumps. Each engine has dual ignition and electric start with a 22 amp alternator. The engines have our gold oil system and the builder’s choice of billet or welded oil pan.
The engines can be used on airframes as different as a KR-2S to a Zenith 750, so the carb must be a good match for the airframe. For example, aircraft with low wings and fuel pumps require MA-3 or Ellison carbs, while gravity feed airframes can use a wide array of carbs, including the affordable Stromberg. The Corvair has flown on more than 15 different carbs, and we will be glad to assist you in choosing the correct one for your airframe.

I wish someone would tell me a ball park price on one of these engines without being told to buy a 75 dollar manual if i want to find out
Cameron, no one has to buy a manual to ask any question. There are a number of different options on output, crankshafts, kit or fully assembled etc. The fastest way to get fully up to date pricing is simply call Rachel at 904 626 7777 extension #1, and she will be glad to share the exact information.
Well I called Rachael, she said if I want that information on what model of engine I need for a core, then I would have to buy a manual. Ill leave it at that.
Cameron, it says in many places on my site a core motor costs 100-300 bucks on condition. When I read your comment I first thought you were speaking of complete engine costs, that’s an easy phone question. To hunt a core motor effectively you do need a manual, there are over 50 letter codes on engines, and you need to see pictures of where to look, that cannot be effectively covered on phone.
So, As I understand it , I need a core to buy a complete engine? i’m looking for the largest HP engine that you’all would build,and I need a price , from the firewall foreword.Thank You.
Donald, the largest engine is the 3.3L engine , which is available as a kit from SPA, 904- 626-7777. There is a discount if you have a core, but you can also buy the kit outright. Parts to install it are on my shopping page here. You didn’t mention which airframe you are building, if you like, I encourage you to call me 904-806-8143
