    Odd Behavior - Any Theories?

    Hi Folks. I've got some weird behavior going on. Tried to search but didn't find any threads. Three things are happening, which lead me to think it might be electrical but everything else is operating fine, and the car is running fine otherwise. 1. My RPM gauge is way off when I'm driving 2...

    OEM or Stainless Steel Frame Mount Bolts?

    Question - these really are for my 71 camaro but certainly applies to any frame-off restoration. It seems one can get "stainless steel" frame bolts for A LOT more money than the OEM black oxidized, grade 8 frame bolts. This is especially true for my 71 camaro where its a sub-frame car THUS...

    How do you test the oil cooler?

    How do I test an oil cooler to see if there is some kind of breach inside it potentially causing water to get in my oil? Can these actually be tested? Do they fail and cause this to happen often? I highly doubt it but want to rule simple things out before going to gaskets and/or a potential...

    Water In Oil - HELP

    Well, my worst fears are confirmed - there is definitely water in my oil. Don't you just love it when you pull the drain plug and the milky mess comes out. I put new head gaskets on the car about 20,000 miles ago - at that time the head gasket on driver's side was leaking out the back toward...

    Challenge Question - Bypassing oil filter coolant line? Is that possible?

    Ok folks. First, I know this is likely an "unethical" question, so to speak, but I'm desperate to get this car running right now as all my cars are down! This is one of my daily drivers. I have a coolant leak in the aluminum line that runs from the heater hose "t" down, under the oil pan, in...

    Is this a master cylinder malfunction?

    Howdy y'all. I have a question regarding my 68. I had to replace one of my calipers (front driver's side). No problem. Did that, bled the brakes, got all the air out. But now it feels like there is something generally wrong with the braking. The brakes have never worked great on the car to...

    Hose Identification Please!

    I hope this isn't a really dumb question. I have a MASSIVE, and I mean MASSIVE water leak on my 90 corvette. RUNNING out of it so much so that it will empty the radiator completely in about 30 minutes. For the life of me I cannot locate exactly where it is coming from but I do have a suspect...

    Odd, cryptic water leak

    So, I'm at my wits end. I cannot for the life of me locate my water leak. This is on my 90. The water pump is brand new (and it was not rebuilt) and was only replaced about two years ago and I haven't drive this car that much so doubtful its that. Radiators hoses are new. The only evidence...

    Help! How to install rear spoiler

    Hi All - I wouldn't be doing this if I hadn't bought the car with holes already drilled in the back but I finally got around to getting the spoiler I bought for the 90 painted and want to install it. Trouble is, I can't even see those holes hardly from the underneath of the car. Tried taking...

    Front End MASSIVE Shaking

    My 68 goes down the road pretty smooth. No right to left pulling, very solid and straight EXCEPT when I hit a bump. When I hit a bump in the road the entire front end shakes MASSIVELY. There are brand new shocks all the way around BTW. My question is, when that steering cylinder quits (the...

    Touchup Paint for Carpet?

    I have some rub marks on the carpet portion of my under dash to where the "fuzz" part of the carpet is rubbed off. Color is still pretty brilliant (bright red). I'd like to just get some touch up paint and go over these few areas so it isn't so obvious. I've searched the forums, haven't found...

    Help with weird rear wheel noise

    I've been searching the threads but I don't feel confident enough in what I read so I thought I'd pose the question. This is on the 90. When driving it honestly sounded like a rear brake metal-to-metal sound when I was going down the road but the brakes are fine. I thought maybe something...

    Need to break into my own car!

    I can't believe I couldn't find a thread on this but I locked the keys in my 81 and need to try to slim jim my own car. I know its relatively easy to do this I just need to know how. I live way outside the city so its gonna cost me and arm and a leg to have someone come do it. I've done this...

    Is there fluid in the a/c compressor clutch?

    I am pretty sure the answer is no, however, I have what seems to be fluid marks that have spewed out in a splatter pattern right from the a/c compressor clutch. And, when the a/c is running there is this horrible burnt smell; everything is fine when the a/c is off. I thought it may be the...

    Steering Weirdness - Need Hypotheses

    Hi All; Working on my 89 IROC Convertible. Yes, it has 200815 miles - still running great and strong. Now first, obviously the front suspension pieces are worn.... or are they? I need to help in deciphering the specific problem I'm having at the moment; need some theories. Please consider...

    Power Brake booster Vaccuum Leak at Pedal

    Hi All; I haven't gotten in there yet but I have no power brakes due to a massive vacuum leak at the pedal. You can hear it - it is substantial. My question is, do you think I can just replace the boot itself or is it more likely the diaphragm in the brake booster is broke around the area the...

    NEEDED - 90 Headlight switch knob

    Well, the dealer doesn't sell it, Ecklers doesn't have it and neither does Corvette Central so that tells me that it is not yet remanufactured and the only way I'm going to get a new one is if someone has a new one or a really good used one so if you have one and want to sell it please let me...

    Head Light Malfunction

    Before I go doing the awful task of trying to replace the headlight switch, I was wondering if there might be something else I'm overlooking. My low beams aren't working on my 68. The reason I'm not sure its the switch is because it is somewhat an intermittent problem; kind of like a loose...

    Rear Brake Engagement on a 90

    Hi All! Happy Thanksgiving! Hey, quick question. On a 90, are all four calipers supposed to engage under normal braking or only the front? My driver's side rear caliper is engaging (and maybe the other too but I know that side is), even when I barely tap the brake. I know on other chevies...

    Wanted: Original 1990 Stereo Unit?

    Does anyone have an old complete working original stereo unit that they took out if/when they upgraded to a different stereo? Mine doesn't work at all and I like the fact it matches the rest of the interior so I want to replace it with an original one. If someone has a working one and can let...
