A Small Brake Issue - advice please

  Views: 22   Comments: 0

OK, I need a little help. It's probably something simple.

1992 Vette, with ABS. I put on new pads and rotors all the way around. I opened the bleeders because I didn't want the fluid backing up in the ABS system (I think there is a pump...)


The back pads have a little sensor tab on them, and the inboard pads are specific from side to side. I know this because I got one in, and noticed on the next wheel that it didn't match EXACTLY, so I stopped and switched it out.


Then I ...

Cherry bomb exhaust....here's where the advice is needed....the motor leaks & burns oil, no issues w/trans or rearend but if I get 383 crate to replace (no brainer for the $), should I upgrade the 8" rearend? new trans even though nothing wrong...

Olds Question

  Views: 146   Comments: 5

I'm looking at this picture of a 1961 Olds and I'm wondering about the headlights.

We had a 61Starfire convertible with a different configuration.

Just wondering if a different model had a different arrangement or is this custom? Looks like a 59 or so to me.
No problem, I think this car is beautiful the way it is.................just curious that's all.

Have a wonderful day everybody!...

POWERBLAST PLATES https://www.thompsonperformance.com

So, I heard about these on a hotrod forum, checked them out on their website and decided to order two for my Edelbrock dual quads on my SBC. Ordering was easy Dan and Jaimie are both very nice people to work with and the shipping was extremely fast (2 days). These are very nicely machined and finished.

Today I installed both POWERBLAST plates into my carbs, installation was easy, took about 30 minutes total for both carbs (for some it ...

1932 Ford Thermostat Change

  Views: 289   Comments: 10

1932 Ford Thermostat Change . The 32 runs up around 200 in traffic and pukes out a little water. The 32 has a electric cooling fan and a walker radiator sized for the 32 grill shell. The current thermostat is a 180 degree. I pulled the stat and running in the garage the temp still climbs to 3/4 on the gauge after idling for 20 minutes with the fan on. What are you thoughts on the next step to keep it running cooler?...

Does it matter which side for PCV

  Views: 182   Comments: 4

I'm really squeezed for space to run a hard line (or rubber) from the driver's side of the engine to the PCV outlet on the carb, so considering putting the breather on the driver's side with the PCV on the passenger side. Engine is a hopped up 430 hp GM crate engine. (350 cu.in.) Any documented reason that this won't work? I've seen opinions about engine rotation and flinging oil etc, but not sure that is a real concern....

TUNE PORT INJECTOR

  Views: 289   Comments: 8

I HAVE A 1986 CORVETTE tune port motor.that will start but dies in about 3 seconds. It has 43 lbs. of pressure off the shrader valve where you check the pressure. If you spray fuel or either through the front it will run until you quit spraying. I have put a new fuel pump in it. What makes the injecters open and close is that the computer or fuel pressure. Some times while cranking the fuel pressure drops to zero but jumps back to 40 when you turn the key back on. Last i just pulled a plug t...

  Views: 898   Comments: 10

Found a very nice looking 62 Olds Starfire advertised at $19500 with photos in Kenosha WI. Supposedly Roger Cooper was selling assets to avoid foreclosure on his furniture refinishing business. Told me car was located in storage in Seattle WA and would be shipped upon receipt of the $19500. Asked for more photos which, he sent. Asked him if the car had a working A/C system. His reply was " blows ice cold air". Thought that was strange as the photos of the dashboard did not indicate vents nor...

1950 Mercury Progress continues. Bought this 50 Mercury a few days ago with the transmission slipping. Sounds like the pump was going out. A loud grinding noise coming from the transmission. I pulled the 700R and I think I am going to order a turbo 350 long shaft from TCI to replace it. The Merc has the throttle body injection set up that was pulled out of an older Chevy car. I am removing that as well and going back with a standard Edelbrock Carburetor. I am a fan of the old and easy simple t...
