    PDF version of manuals.

    I'm leaving a couple of weeks for deployment and would like to take my 1982 service and owners manuals with me. I really don't want to take the paper version and my service manual is to the point I need to put it in a three ring binder anyways. If anyone has a PDF version of these I would sure...

    WTB - 1982 Corvette Gas Tank

    Less then XX weeks to deployment and I find a couple of pin hole leaks in the gas tank. Apparently they don't make an aftermarket version so if anyone has one for sale or knows of a company that relines/repairs these gas tanks please chime in. The way the garage smelled I thought a main...

    Sold the C4 today...kind of sad

    Well I bought the C3 about three weeks ago and it's been great working on it and starting to learn all about it but today I sold my C4. I sold it via eBay and the guy that won it came to look at it and place the deposit. He loved it and will be back next week to pick it up with the balance. I...

    1982 Steering Wheel Options

    Just got my C3...already making a list of things I want to change and the first is the factory steering wheel. I would like something smaller as the 14" wheel seems big for me (6'5") so if anyone has an aftermarket suggestion I wuold sure appreciate some guidance.

    The quest continues, help me out.

    Well folks, my dream of purchasing a nice C3 is quickly becoming a discouraging one. My budget may be my limit (roughly 10 to 12K) but I think that's the market price for a decent if not nice C3...tell me if I'm wrong please. Anyways, three deals later and a drive to look at my new baby have...

    Looking for C3

    Finally taking the plunge to get a C3 and sell my C4 (1996 LT1). I have secured funds and will purchase within the next 30 days. Looking for an 80-82, almost any color but tan, brown, and light blues. Most important things to me are no history of major accidents...I can live with the front...

    1996 LT1 Red Corvette For Sale

    1996 Red LT1 Corvette Miles - 102,500 I'm deploying in Feb 06 and as much as I would like to keep her I think I'm better off selling and banking the tax free extra money for a C5 when I return. This is a tough choice for me and I know the car will not bring what I have invested...

    ABS and ASR light is on after.....

    Some of you may recall I'm tracking down a grabbig left caliper even after replacing all of the calipers, rotors and pads. The front left wheel would just be covered in brake dust while the right front had very little. Other then the troubleshooting guides mentioning the piston seal on the...

    Temperature - Transmission, Oil, and Water

    I hate to ask what has been probably answered a dozen times but all of the searches I've looked at have lots of different answers so here goes. I have a 96 LT1, stock, no mods, newly rebuilt transmission, recent oil change (Mobil 1), and replaced optispark and water pump by the previous owner...

    Fans on 1996 LT1 Corvette

    Ok, I've searched the forums high and low and read just about every post on the subject but I'm still not clear on something: I have two fans, primary (left side) and secondary (right side)....is the primary fan suppose to kick on at given temperature? or is the primary set to a lower degree...

    For the tall C4 drivers out there.....

    Just passing on something I did they may help a few of you get a little more headroom. Based upon some other messages posted here and elsewhere on the net I picked up a manual seat track off eBay for $25.00. I did this because I was told the manual track is shorter by 1/2"......not true. The...

    ABS Flush

    In a prior thread I posted the problem where I'm getting brake dust on the left front and literally nothing on the right. New calipers, rotors, pads, and lines and the problem continues. The right front wheel spins freely while the left front seems to grab a bit but still turns. The suggestion...

    Need help quick - What is this wire??

    I'm replacing my antenna which prompted me to remove the rear wheel and housing. Which by the way is the best thing to do because squeezing my hands up into that area was just cutting my hands all over the place....and the frigging rubber @$)*@)#*@ Anyways, that's going smoothly now but I've...

    Uneven amounts of brake dust

    I originally had the rotors and new pads installed all the way around on my 96 LT1 about 500 miles ago. At the time the tech noted a small tear in the boot on one of the front calipers and mentioned I might need to address that in the future. Additionally, the entire brake system was flushed...

    Weatherstrip - Aftermarket v. GM

    Well I thought I would pass on my success and failures with weather-strip replacement on my 1996 LT1 coupe. I avoided GM OEM as the price was just too high and I thought I could get by with aftermarket. For the most part, the aftermarket stuff worked pretty well but buyer beware is the lesson I...

    OptiSpark ?

    FYI - I noticed that the previous owner did not reconnect the two lines to the OptiSpark when I detailed my engine so I had those items fixed at the car center while I was having the car checked over (I have a slight miss at idle). The ? is, do the vent hoses have anything to do with advance on...

    VICTORY at last...a PKE story....

    FYI Just wanted to share my joy at finally seeing my PKE light disappear and my fob finally working. After looking at dozens of forum messages, cleaning my door contacts with WD40, checking fuses, disconnecting the battery and every other voodoo act, I replaced the PKE receiver behind the...

    Cats on LT1 - 1996

    Does anyone know if the catalytic converters on the LT4 are the same for the LT1 for 1996? I have a P0430 code on the LT1 and I've replaced O2 sensors so I suspect it's actually the catalytic converter. I have a line on a set for an LT4 but don't know if there's any difference. Thanks
