    Wheels and RA1 tires

    Z06 Rep. Wheels and RA1 tires I'm selling four 9.5X17 wheels, with Toyo Proxes RA1 tires mounted and balanced. The wheels are off my 1996 coupe, but should fit other early 90's C4's as well. The wheels, marketed under the name Sport Edition, are replicas of C5 Z06 wheels and were purchased from...

    Engine Seized, shavings in bell housing

    Hello. The LT4 in my ’96 CE seized last weekend. I was doing a track day at a local road course. Last session of the day, about halfway through the warm-up lap, a really loud nasty sound started up from the front of the car. It sounded as if something was being turned on a metal lathe. I...

    Steering shaft problems...

    Hello Guys and Gals, haven't posted here in a while, as everything has been going along pretty smoothly! Recently though, the steering has been getting a little loose, so I did some checking today. There's an intermediate shaft that runs from the firewall to the steering gear, and I found that...

    Oops, somehow this posted twice, and I can't figure out how to remove it. Sorry about that.

    Guldstrand Visit (long)

    Well, quite a treat for this relative newcomer to the Corvette world. I live and work near Dick Guldstrand’s shop in Burbank, CA. I’ve known his name and reputation as a racer and car builder for many years, but when it came to repairs on the Vette, I never really considered his shop...

    Long strange trip...

    Well, I finally finished getting my new B&B 3 inch exhaust system installed. Man, that sounds great! Loud, but great! I could not get the tips to stay where I wanted them though, they kept twisting away from horizontal. Finally had to have some spot welds put on the joints to keep them from...

    Rear wheel bearings help please

    Well, it's time to replace the rear wheel bearings again (this will be the third set in two years!), and I'm beginning to question if I'm doing something wrong when installing them! In all fairness, I take the car to the track several times a year, which I understand can have a somewhat...

    Doug Rippie Motorsports

    Great guys over at Doug Rippie Motorsports! One of the guys there spent about 20 minutes talking with me about my power steering pump problems, even though he didn't have anything to sell me! Just thought I'd share... :D Barry

    Another power steering question

    Folks, I know this has been posted to death, but please bear with me. I have a power steering leak right where the high pressure line goes into the top of the pump. The fluid is actually coming up between the steel pipe and the threaded fitting that holds the pipe to the pump. I removed the...

    1996 left-side cat

    Hi all, I need to replace the left-side cat on my '96 with the LT4, and am having trouble locating one that won't require me to mortgage the house! A used piece from one of the Vette-only recyclers is $300. My question is this- does anyone know if the left-side cat is the same for all the...

    Where to mount the oil cooler?

    Has anyone mounted an aftermarket engine oil cooler at the back of the car? Bear with me here. I spent the weekend at a track event at Willow Springs Raceway out in the Mojave Desert here in sunny, hot Southern California. The air temp on the track was around 107 degrees! I wound up having to...

    cats cool at different rates?

    All, I was under the car this weekend, and noticed that the cats cooled at drastically different rates. I had just come back from a drive, and both cats were too hot to touch when I first put the car up on stands. About two hours later though, the passenger side cat was still warm, but the...

    Another LTPWS question...

    My car did not come from the factory with the UJ6 LTPWS option, at least according to the options list on the car. I'm the fifth owner of the car I had the Vette at Willow Springs Raceway this weekend, and wound up having a wild ride off-track. Nothing seriously damaged, but I picked up a...

    Brake pedal position...?

    Hi all. I'm new to the world of Corvettes, and have a question about the brake pedal position in my LT4/6 speed equiped car. The brake pedal is much higher (further away from the floor) than the clutch pedal, and I was wondering if this is normal for this car? If not normal, then can it be...

    Loose taillight

    Hi all, New to the forum, and to the world of Corvettes. I recently bought a '96 Collector Edition with the LT4. There's a lot of great stuff here, and I've been able to resolve several issues with information found here! I have one small problem that I haven't found any discussion of. The...
