Well... I made it to 46 years old. How I did that and didn't end up in jail, dead or otherwise is anyone's guess.
A couple of important updates to report that happened to coincide with my birthday.
First, I think I might have finally found a core engine. In fact, I might have found TWO! I responded to an ad on Kijiji posted by a guy in southern Ontario and spoke with him this evening.
Best part? These cores were destined to go into a couple of Pietenpol Aircamper projects he was involved in so they "should" be the right type!!
I'm heading down this weekend to have a look.
Also tonight, I ordered the William Wynne Corvair disassembly DVD which guides builders towards taking apart a core and what trouble areas to look out for.
All in all a great way to spend my birthday!
