    Looking for 700r4 Tranny Company

    Looking all over the net trying to find a reputable tranny company selling a 700r4. Nothing exotic, just to go in my old 68 truck. As soon as I find what appears to be a good company, with top ratings on Ebay, then look at BBB review and they score an "F". Anyone have a good experience with...

    LS1 Rear Seal Questions with Picture

    This is the first time for a RM seal on a LS1. The seal appeared good and dry around the inner side. It appears to be leaking around the outer ring at the bottom. Also found 2 loose bolts at top. This could also have been a leak point. (171,000 Miles) 1. Is this the normal area to fail...

    LS1 Rear Main Seal

    Swapped tranny out about 2 years (2000 Camaro) ago and did not think about the seal. Now I have to think about the seal as I am leaking pretty good. It is a PITA to pull the tranny but I can handle that part. Started looking into how to replace the seal and what is required, tools, etc...

    2002 Headlight Bulbs

    Wanting to put some new Silver Star Bulbs in the 02. According to all I can find the 9006 is an exact fit, WRONG. I tried for 20 minutes and they will not go. The center plastic ring is a bit larger and will not allow the entire bulb base to seat properly. You can get two of the tabs in but...

    1982 A/C Retro Fit with Sanden Compressor

    Here ya go; instead of doing the complete Vintage Air system at $1200, I opted to swap out the compressor, condenser, of course a new accumulator, new orifice, and new hoses. Like everything else I have learned in life, just do it your self and it works out better. Crimp kit cost me $140...

    Charging a/c in 1982 ???

    System has been flushed and running for three years r134. It just does not cool as well as it should and I thought about checking the orifice tube, maybe stopped up. If I open the system at this point only; Do I need to change the accumulator? Add anymore oil? Just pull vacuum again and then...

    82 Horn Spring, Eyelet, Insulator

    Going over why my horn has never worked, I found all systems good, as long as I drop a bolt in the eyelet and jump to ground, at the top of the column. I have a schematic of sorts from the assembly manual describing this area but not the parts. I guess I am missing the spring, some type of...
