It works! The Corvair Spyder convertible top is a separate mechanical system like brakes, air conditioning, or the engine itself, that needs to work at the push of a button. Tom and Doug installed a new electric pump, ram, and lines along with restoring the top bows. With it all hooked up and back together it was time to test, and to circulate and bleed the fluid for proper articulation. Here’s a video of the first test with assistance from Bob. Just another part of this elaborate puzzle is now complete.
If you haven’t seen the first engine fire up check that video out also. We are on schedule for the Corvair’s debut at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas the end of October. If you’re attending come by our display and check out the new products we’ve recently finished as well as the Corvair.
