Brand New 250 page 2014 Manual- Done


I went to the print shop yesterday and picked up boxes of our new manual. This is a very large, entirely new Corvair Conversion manual I have been working on for 18 months.




Rear view of a 3000 cc engine with mechanical fuel injection.




It is based on the new numbering system that we introduced last year, It is much better organized than our previous manual. It has twice the page count, but it has a more compact font and smaller margins, yielding 3.5 times the content of the last manual, The word count is now 103,500. Every photo has a detailed caption, much of the book is in color, it has greatly expanded sections on installations and includes checklists and operations data.




Grace has delayed mailing new manual orders that have come in recently to wait for this. If you bought a manual in the last 90 days we will get you a new one after Oshkosh for reduced cost. If you hold an older manual and would like to upgrade, just send us an email with “Manual upgrade” in the subject line and the number from the cover of your original manual please include your mailing address.  After Oshkosh we will send you a note about the cost of the upgrade before we ship it to you.




New Builders can directly go to the manual link on our products page: to order their manual. We have raised the price to $69, from the $59 cost that we had on the last manual for 10 years.- ww.

    • Stuart and guys,

      I appreciate your comments and interest in upgrades, and we will add you to the list, but I wanted to ask follow on guys to send the manual upgrade note to our email and not to place it in the comments section here, I want to round them all up on our email in one place. about 20 came through in the first hour, which I thought was a very positive reception, we have had a steady number arrive by email today. We will be glad to get to work sending the upgrades outright after Oshkosh. Thanks, ww.

    Received my new manual yesterday and read it, too. Very well organized, well edited and to the point. I learned a few new things that weren’t in the old manual. It will be opened again for reference as I get ready to fly. Well done.
