Be aware that the front of that engine is the bell-housing end.

Start by getting a catalog from Clark's Corvair parts and Corvair Underground. Just going thru the catalogs you will learn a lot about the Corvair and engine. Both companies offer various rebuilt parts and assemblies that will speed the process. Make certain you use the Viton "O" rings for the push rod tubes
