    2012 GS

    Excitable, Thanks for the reply ! After dong a little more research I believe you are right on the dual mode exhaust function. Apparently it is vacuum controlled and when you put your foot in it the vacuum opens the baffles . So that solves that question, but I still need an extra fob. I've...

    2012 GS

    Hi All, I just purchased a 2012 Crystal Red GS (sold my '71); its a nice looking car. However, it originally had the dual roof option, but now only has the body color roof. It wasn't a deal breaker but the dealer said that he rarely sees the C6's with both roofs. Is that true ? 2) It only has...

    '59 Seat Track Rollers

    Success !! That must've been it. I put a couple of thin flat washers between the track and the seat frame on all the back bolts and that did the trick. However I did have to drill and tap one the bolt holes/threaded nuts and install a larger bolt. Luckily that didn't cause any issues. Both seats...

    '59 Seat Track Rollers

    Tom, thanks for going to all that trouble for me ! But, yeah, I just found that out. I switched the tracks and there is NO WAY they are going to work with the bolts on the outside - there isn't eve n a hole for it on the pass side, but there is one on the driver side; strange. One other thing I...

    '59 Seat Track Rollers

    I think I may have hit on something: I'm looking at the Corvette Service Manual (ST-12) and I notice on the Seat Assy. diagram that the inside track assy. that only has one tab (where the bolt goes through), the tab goes to the outside of the seat. I have mine on the inside. I've got both seats...

    '59 Seat Track Rollers

    I'm positive that I don't have the seat cushions and seat frames switched (I kept the cushions on their respective sides in the garage and I had to beat on the pass. side seat frame to get it out, so I can tell which one that is). However, I did send the seat tracks out to be blasted I had them...

    '59 Seat Track Rollers

    OK, this is getting frustrating. Got the carpet back in after a few setbacks Then put the seats back in (pretty tough getting to all the bolts) and took it for a ride. Mechanically everything is great, but my DS seat is about 2" forward from where I had it and I can't move it back anymore...

    '71 Electrical Issue

    Thanks Junkie; sounds like that might be my problem. And, as far as I can tell, a relatively easy fix. Going through some health issues right now, so probably wont get to until some time next week, but will let you know what I find out. Bernie O

    '71 Electrical Issue

    I have a '71 Coupe, base engine (350/270), auto trans that has a strange electrical problem: After a short or long ride I bring it back to my garage and shut it off. However, it doesn't always shut all the way off. If I have the radio on it will continue to play. I will turn the key off and on...

    '59 Seat Track Rollers

    Hi All, I will be re-installing my seats soon after installing new carpet and have a couple of questions: 1) I have been lightly gluing the carpet down over top of the HushMat I installed with 3M spray adhesive. Is this correct ? Just curious as I am going to do it anyway. My old carpet was NOT...

    '59 Water Pump / Motor Mounts

    Tom, The plot thickens ! Now I get an email from Corvette Central and they say "the nuts are locking nuts. the nuts only go down two threads and then stop You have to force the nuts the rest of the way" So ....... I guess I'll try them and see what happens. But I do find it strange that the...

    '59 Water Pump / Motor Mounts

    OK Tom, I finally bought the correct bolt kit form Corvette Central. 1st Problem: I remove the bolts, spacers, etc.... from the package and notice they are fine thread. No big deal, but just out of habit I try to screw one of the nuts onto the bolt - it's really hard and doesn't want to go. I...

    '59 Water Pump / Motor Mounts

    Hi All, Hope you are all doing well with this Covid mess ! I just installed a new water pump on my '59 and have a question or two about the motor mount that is bolted through the water pump: 1) I mounted the water pump correctly passing the bolts through the pump and then the motor mount...

    '71 TH400 Trans

    Here we go again: I thought this was going to be easy, but a little messy; it's one but not the other. Pulling and replacing the pan on my '71 TH400. Got the old pan off; a little messy, but not too bad (who was the genius at GM who decided not to put a drain plug in the pan to save a couple of...

    '71 Fan Switch

    I have a '71, base motor, Automatic, PS, PB and A/C. Problem #1 I am having issues with the fan motor switch on the console: It seems to have only one speed (low) no matter where I position the switch, so it doesn't really cool the car down. It is also difficult to move the switch lever. More...

    IFS for C-1

    I've been toying (really wanting to) with the idea of putting a Jim Meyer IFS under the '59. Just waiting for the boss to let me spend the $$$. However, in a recent issue of Vette magazine I saw an ad for an IFS kit from an outfit in North Carolina called "Studley's Independent Rods". It looks...

    C-3 Rivet Pops

    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I seem to be only getting one page of posts. So... I have the all to common rivet pops on the front of my '71. It might be my imagination, but one or tow of them seem to be getting worse lately. Just wondering how much the (correct) fix is going to...
