Geez, been a while since I've seen one of those!

Any detail pics on the cooling tin?

Thats the same set-up for the corvair. They had a tendancy to throw the belt. Do these have the same problem? Looks pretty cool b.t.w.

I am setting up the linkage for the carbs.
there is a little bit of play in it.


This is not good. This will need to be taken out to get it to run proper.


The Arm and the linkage rod heim bolt are way too sloppy.

A bushing is called for to remove the play.

No problem an old Base shim.010 should work.

Tighten it up and it as soild as a rock no more slop.


Now let get rid of the slop at the pivot point. Coke can provides the shim stock.



Now it's ready no more slop. Now to repeat on the other side.

917 style, I like it. I wonder if RAT has any test data on that. I noticed that he is usign a 5 blade fan. Is 11 too much air? Corvair's late style fan pushes less air than teh earlier style vair

The Vair belt problem is easily rectified. I still don't like the horizontal fan thing, though. Looks wierd unless there is 8 cyl under it (now that is sexy).

Here is a pic of my corvair fan setup on my FP race engine.
It works really well btw, no problems with belt loss.

Here is one that I designed about 10 years ago.
It's electric. I have been selling for years.

Looks just as Mickey Mouse as the setup on the Corvair... Not sure if a five blade fan is going to provide adequate cooling for th Type 4...

wrong! the 11 blade fans use TOO much air!

go over to 914club.com i posted asking if tests had been done on the riechert fan vs 911 shrouds vs stock vs DTM

see for yourself....

Total noob questions here sorry - -

Can you change the top fan pulley to alter the fan volume?

Also, what difference is there between this and the 911 upright style? It would look to me that junk could get in and make a mess easily. Prolly just for racing right?

(Hey Jared my dad used to use that expression all the time, haven't heard it in ten years, funny!)

the 911 fans and the richert fans do not support stock oil coolers. you have to run an external cooler.

like i said, there was a BIG thread on the other board about all these specific questions...

Acox, in which way do they not support stock oil coolers? All 911 engines (up to 89 at least) have an oil cooler on the motor and it works with that?
