    1979 L48 Quadrajet rebuild

    I'm looking to rebuild the Quadrajet carb on my 1979 L48. I see so many places to buy the rebuild kits and the prices range from $27 to $75. I want to do this right the first time with a quality kit. Where can I find a rebuild kit that has quality parts? The carb has 60K miles. Will the new...

    Engine misfire? - multiple cylinders not firing?

    The engine ran normally after the spark plug replacement. I have noticed that the car had no acceleration when entering the highway from the on ramp. The car did sit a while in the previous owners garage. I was planning on rebuilding the quadrajet anyway due to the length of time the car was...

    Engine misfire? - multiple cylinders not firing?

    Quadrajet rebuild necessary???

    1979 350 rear main seal question

    I have a 1979 with a 350 engine and automatic transmission. The car has just under 60,000 miles. I bought the car in November of 2013 and noticed that there is a small amount (3 - 5 drops) of oil under the car after driving. I understand that the 350 engine is notorious for rear main seal leaks...

    AC Compressor fried?????

    Hello Forum Members, I have a '79 L48 Vette and I might have a big problem. I took my car to get detailed at a local detailer two weeks ago. I had them clean the engine so that it would be clean for the new year. My AC was working great before I took the car in but now when I turn on my AC...
