    Big Tank Floors for Restomods?

    What do you think this 66 is worth?

    I'm in the market for my next project car. I'd like to do a Resto Mod Mid Year so my goal is to find a decent mid year, non numbers matching to get started with. Even these types of cars beg for serious money. I found a car near my home. 1966, 4spd, Convertible, am/fm, AC (missing from...

    Dumb Question regarding 79-82 Seats

    I've got a dumb question for you... I just bought a set of 79-82 style Corvette seats from a local junkyard. I'm updating the seats in my 71 because I liked this style seat a lot when I had my 78 Pacecar. What I can't remember from the old car or figure out with the new seats is how to...

    The car is making progress. I'm writing this post to document the paint progress. 2 weeks down 6 weeks to go. The body was in fantastic shape under the paint. No previous repairs or wreck damage. The only items of any significance were the two holes on the rear quarter panels where the...

It will be Candy Blue over Cosmic Stardust (silver metalic) basecoat. This is a color from DuPont but the painter is going to use House of...

    Never seen this before have you? Pushrod question.

    With all my crate motor woes I've gone round and round getting things fixed. I have some semi-professional help coming to the house potentially this weekend. He's got an 8 second Nova and is supposed to be a real wizard so I've got my fingers crossed. The reason for the post is to ask about...

    I give up. I must be stupid. Need help. Can't get this motor tuned to save my life.

    Today is not my day. I've read all of Lars' papers on tuning, timing, valve lash, etc. You've all given me good advice. I still can't get my new YearOne crate motor tuned to save my life. I've concluded I must not be able to follow simple directions and that I'm a hopeless basket case...

    How much space required above air cleaner?

    I'm wrapping up the rebuild before I send the car out for paint. Got the body back on and am making all the connections before firing her up. My question is about the required clearance between the top of the air cleaner and the hood. I've got an aftermarket L-88 Hood. The motor has an...

    Electrical Gurus Chime In - Mini Starter and HEI

    Getting closer to dropping the body on. Just installed a new ProForm mini/high torque starter on the crate motor. The instructions were really weak and the online instructions match what came in the box. The selenoid had only 2 places to attach wires. One large terminal for the battery and...

    Bellhousing Dust Cover for 1 piece rear main seal?

    Anyone converting to a crate motor with a one piece rear main seal... Where did you get a replacement dust cover/inspection plate to cover the bottom half of the bell housing for a 4 speed. The cover I have for the old 2 piece seal doesn't fit. I'm thinking of cutting it but was hoping there...

    I'm putting everything back together on the 71. The new wiring harness is great but I have a problem with the AC Blower Motor. The AC wiring harness has a purple and black wire that goes to the fan. In addition, the engine harness has a Black and Orange wire that go to the same location. The...

    Change from Mech Oil Pressure Gauge to Electric

    I'm in the process of putting the 71 back together and was wondering if I could change the mechanical oil pressure gauge to an electric gauge from a later C3. Will the gauge from a later C3 fit in the center console? What wiring would I have to do for the electric gauge? I'm assuming a...

    AC, Alternator, and PS Brackets

    I just got my crate motor for my 71 and it's time to put the accessories back on. I'd like to clean everything up a bit and I don't like the stock brackets especially since the alternator and AC bolt to the exhaust manifolds. The car has the long style AC compressor and Power Steering. The new...
