    Anyone near Cary, NC?

    Hi, been away from the Corvette scene for a few years, however Corvettes are in my blood, so I'm back and looking for either a C6 or maybe a C5. I saw the below link on Auto Tempest and was wondering if anyone is close enough to swing by and check this out in person. It's hard to tell in the...

    1986-1989 ABS Relays Available - GM #: 1636973

    I have 5 good used 1986 - 1989 ABS Control Module Relays available if anyone needs one. I picked them up at a flea market. The guy knew what he had, as these have long been discontinued by GM, and even I couldn't find any aftermarket source that currently is reproducing these relays, so he...

    Question: 1986 Vapor Canister Question - Vacuum Routing

    On my 1986 convertible, it's taken me weeks to straighten out all the things the previous owner decided to replace/repair incorrectly, i.e jury rigged. Anyway, I'm now onto the vapor canister, and thanks to a picture that Agent 86 posted, it looks like I have the vacuum routing correct. I have...

    Help! 1986 ABS - Further Diagnosis Help Needed

    Before I ask the question, here's what I've done so far. I have a FSM, and followed most of the procedures in the diagnostic section. I've replaced the modulator assembly with a known good unit, including the wiring harness, since that had some corrosion on the terminals where it connected to...

    Question: 1986 Caster Alignment Question

    It seems to be getting harder and harder to find a qualified shop that knows what they are doing in regards to performing a 4 wheel Corvette alignment, especially in my area. Anyway, I bought it to Steve Shannon Tires in my area, and they did a 4 wheel alignment; they were able to get the front...

    Help! 1986 Low Air Flow From Dash Vents

    So far, I've corrected the minor vacuum leak on the plastic rotary piece that controls the A/C, Heat, Vent functions (it was hissing and wasn't sealed properly); then I replaced the blower motor with a new AC Delco unit (got a good deal from Amazon, $35 plus shipping); it definitely is blowing...

    News: 1984-1988 Clutch Fork Boot - 2 available

    After about 92 phone calls, I finally found a place that actually had one; actually they had 3, and I bought one, so they still have 2 left if you happen to need one; even though it was used, it looks brand new, and I would rate the condition at a solid 9 on a scale of 1 to 10; see the link...

    Help! Fan doesn't come on with A/C on

    My mechanic just recharged the A/C on my 1986 (C60 manual), and when he turns the A/C on, the fan will not come on as it should. It functions properly in regards to the coolant temperature, on at 225* and off at (not sure of exact temperature); he said he grounded the wire on one of the pressure...

    Question: 1986 Water/Heater Control Valve Question

    At what position on the HVAC control panel should vacuum be applied to the water shut-off valve? I sprayed it with WD-40, and slightly loosened the 1/4" bolt where the linkage pivots, and tested it with my vacuum pump, and it moves very freely, although no matter what position the slide lever is...

    I am replacing the slave cylinder and hose (the clutch master cylinder has already been replaced) on my 1986 Convertible; question is - is there a boot that goes over the clutch fork push rod? I can crawl under and snap a pic and post it up if you need to see, however those familiar with the...

    Question: Head Gasket repair in a bottle? Do any really work?

    On my 1986 Convertible that I just purchased used, it seems like it may be using a little coolant. I have used the Bar's Head Gasket Repair/Stop Leak in the past, but don't really want to gunk up the cooling system, etc. on something that really won't do much good anyway. Has anyone had any...

    Help! 16 x 8.5" vs 16 x 9.5" rims - 1986 Convertible

    On my 1986 Convertible, it looks like the previous owner messed up a little; it has a set of 1987 rims with the charcoal center sections, however, it has (2) 9.5" rims on the rear, and (1) 8.5" rim on the driver's front, and (1) 9.5" rim on the passenger's side front; on my RPO sticker, it lists...

    I have an '86 convertible with the graphite interior; does anyone know of a source for the rear luggage straps? Didn't see anything out on E-Bay or in the parts sections of the forum.

    Help! What is the easiest way to remove these hoses?

    On my 1986 Convertible 4+3: 1. Lower radiator hose; can you just remove the serpentine belt and move it out of the way, or do you have to remove the air injection stuff? The side that connects to the radiator is easy, however I can't even see the connection the goes to the water pump. 2...
