Maintenance / Reverse bleeding rear drums
« on: December 13, 2019, 08:07:20 PM »
Replaced master cylinder due to brake fluid being rusted. Pulling in air at the new master after air bubbles appear even after bench bleeding. Was going to try a reverse bleed from the passenger right and cannot push the fluid through and only comes gushing out of the bleeder screw no matter if it's barely cracked or almost all the way open.  The fronts are bled and only have the back wheels that i cannot push the fluid through. Makes me wonder if i have a corroded line somewhere not allowing the fluid to pass. The steel line coming off the master is taped off and have it attached to a bottle (catch) can if i ever get it to flow correctly.  Would the only option that i have is to start chasing which line or lines contain the blockage starting from both rear wheels and on up to the master?

General Discussion / 396 big block knock after warmup
« on: June 30, 2019, 04:50:06 PM »
Iíve posted a few things this week because I have a few issues to this new to me 68 SS clone. After the engine warms up there is a faint knock and I cannot tell where it is coming from being the top end or bottom end. Almost sounds like something is knocking against something somewhere. I was going to post the video on YouTube but Iíve found that the resources on this forum are more valuable and I respect the responses from people that know way more than me about these 1st gens and engines. If anyone wants. I can e-mail this video to someone.

General Discussion / Alternator noise
« on: June 25, 2019, 05:11:55 PM »
Need help with alternator loud a$$ noise after changing the alternator top bracket to clean off some surface rust. After i took it off and placed it back in its spot all hell broke loose.
Looks like it's not engaging until after about 5 seconds of running and makes the most god aweful screetch. Please tell me what i did wrong with putting it back on or how it needs to be adjusted.
I can't attach .mov files or else i would.

68 Camaro.I have turn signals and brake lights when I have the lights turned off and when I turn the lights on , I have all running lights, marker lights, front turn signals but no turn signal or brake lights. I've replaced both hd flashers, rear tail lights and assemblies, brake switch and 1157 rear bulbs. I can only drive during the day since I don't need  to have headlights on but  have brake and turn signals
