    All Corvair engines produced after November 29, 1963 were equipped with Blower Belt Guides, as noted in Technical Service Bulletin #982, dated March 18, 1962. This TSB also gives instructions for adding blower belt guides to earlier engines (1961-64). Thanks to Dave Newell for providing scans of this TSB.
