It is often mounted on top of the frame, but to do so, the input shaft must be reversed in the housing. Bump Steer Bump steer is more important than Ackermann because it affects down theroad handling. Bump steer at the front occurs when steering angle changes from nothing more than vertical wheel travel, such as from going over a bump or However, there was always some bump steer. Corvair steering was also used with a similarstyle installation, and it had the same problem; it had some slop in the steering. The best system that rodders used was the Vega crosssteering method, where the steering drag link.traveled under the engine to the passengerside spindle. The crosssteer system eliminated the bumpsteer problem associated with the Mustang and Corvair steering boxes, and Vegastyle steering is still used on Improper adjustment. b.

The gears in the steering mechanism exceeded the Specified Minimum Yield Strenth to which they were designed and failed catastrophically in shear stress. In layman's terms, the little Corvair's steering wheel no longer communicated with the front wheels. The car, freed from the restraints of Mike's guiding hand, now behaved more like a missle than a vehicle. It decided to tour the roadside But right now he's having some second thoughts on just who talked whom into buying a new Corvair. Sure, he had his formenonly reasons. Output in the standard engine is up nearly 19 per cent this year— to 95 hp. (And in the new Monza Spyder models it's a virile 150 hp.) He also had a knowledgeable.appreciation of Corvair's steering, cornering and rearengine traction. Things his wife really couldn't be expected to be interested in. Tidy styling and tasteful (she called them "chic") appearance on the Washington scene of Ralph Nader, Abraham Ribicoff, and the American Trial Lawyers' Association are all part of the story. Significantly, a 1966 landmark case, Larsen vs. General Motors, marked a new trend in automobile liability decisions.25 Manufacturers were now held responsible for inadequate designs that resulted in injuries due to a collision. Other cases followed Larsen, but it was this case, involving the dangerous design of the Corvair steering column, I When David Larsen's Chevrolet.Corvair collided head—on with another car, the force of the collision thrust the Corvair's steering column into Larsen's head. He sued General Motors, the manufacturer, claiming that the Corvair's design was unsafe. I In the late 1940s, several firms produced and marketed DES (diethylstilbestrol), a drug given to pregnant women to prevent miscarriages. In 1971, scientists discovered a link between DES and a form of cancer occurring in the daughters The static steering effort was only .J 2 lb.ft. Eight 1960 low price cars with manual steering were tested, and the average static steering effort was 26 lb.ft. This was more than double that of the Corvair. The average of ten 1960 lowpriced cars with power steering had.a static steering effort of 5.2 lb.ft. There is another way to express this effort. That way is to show the load on the correct diameter steering wheel. The loads for this condition were 31.4 pounds for the manually steering cars A decision was made to discontinue further development of the Corvair. Production for the model year was down to 103,743. In 1967, the Corvair line was trimmed to the 500 and Monza Hardtop Coupes and Hardtop Sedans, and the Monza Convertible. This model year was the first with a collapsible steering column.
