    Need suggestions for getting a modified 1982 corvette registered in CA

    Where to begin.... The previous owner replaced the crossfire with a standard holley carb. He also removed the EGR, smog pump, vapor canister, and catalytic converter. I was living in a state with no emissions tests, so that wasn't a problem when I bought it. A year ago I moved to Northern...

    My other car failed smog

    Hello everyone, I recently moved to an area that requires a smog test and my other car failed. It is a 1995 5.0L Mustang. The CEL is not on, so the computer thinks everything is fine. It failed Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrous oxide. I've never lived in a place that did smog, so...

    opinion about an LT1 in a C3

    I may be moving to a state where they check emissions.... There is no way my car will pass in its present condition. My first thought was to restore the engine to original condition, but that became rather expensive (if I could even find a cross-fire setup). Now I'm playing with the idea of...

    4 Cylinder Corvette

    What do you get when you fire on 1/2 of your cylinders? My car. Went out to drive it over the weekend. It fired up, no problem. Gave it a small amount of gas to back out of the driveway and it almost died. Gave it a good revving, and it jumped to 2,500 RPM and kept going no problem. It ran...

    Oil Pan gasket or rear main seal

    Hey everyone, My car has an oil leak. The oil is dripping down through the hole in the flex plate cover. I assume, that a leaky oil pan gasket could cause this, but could I also have a leaky ream main seal? Is there a way to test the rear main seal and find out? No matter what, I need to...

    Reaching the evaporator core

    Hey everyone, How hard is it to reach the AC evaporator core? My AC is cool, but not cold. I've checked freon levels, replaced the compressor, orifice tube, cleared out debris, and everything else I can think of. A fellow car guy said he had a problem once where the evaporator core in the car...

    Speedometer and cable problem

    Hey everyone, I can't get the speedometer cable re-attached to the speedometer cable. I've done it 2 or 3 times before, but not this time. The cable makes it just the the clip on the back and then won't go any further. Is there a trick to this or should it just slip on and snap? Thanks!!!

    Speedometer Problem

    Well I thought my problem was the speedo cable. Replaced it. Problem went away for a couple of drives. Now my speedometer is just stuck at 30 mph. Doesn't move at all. Is the speedometer head something that I can fix, or is better to send it off? Thanks!

    Possible Speedometer Problem

    Hey everyone, Since I bought car (3 years ago) the speedometer has been kind of sporatic (bounces around +- 5 mph). The faster I drive the more it jumps. This morning, the speedometer was dead at 0. After a couple of miles it started to work a little. It won't go below 30 mph. From a...

    rocker arm adjustment

    I know I have some valve clatter. The service manual says the rocker studs should be tightened to 50 ft-lbs. Should I just use a torque wrench or should I go through the engine running adjustment procedure? All opinions welcome. Thanks!!!

    What to look for with oil pan off.

    I'm getting small oil leaks around the oil pan, so I think I'll replace the pan gasket with a fel-pro at the next oil change. As long as the pan is off, is there any other maintenance I should do or anything i should inspect for wear? Thanks!
