Does anyone know where to get an original radio speaker repaired?


Speaker Doctor in Charlotte NC rebuilt mine and it works great. Google them and if you cant find them let me know. I will send you their number.

Did you bench-bleed the master cylinder? I've gotten rebuilt cylinders that were bad, with just your problem. Just a thought and good luck!

No we did not bench bleed the mc. I bet the thing is bad. I will know soon.

Double check all of your vacuum line connections.  Sounds like you have swapped the lines either at the actuators or at the relay valve.

Actuators act independently.  A problem with one should not affect the other unless it is a physical vacuum leak. 

If both actuators were good before they probably stilll are.  You can check them with a hand vacuum pump.

Thanks Rich.

I am going to the shop today with my vacuum gauge and half step this thing until I figure out what is going on.

I've attached a pretty good trouble shooting article.

Good luck

I have my nice pretty new mc and power booster installed and now cant get the rear bleeder to bleed any fluid out of the mc? I am going to call White Post tomorrow and ask for help but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas about what the problem could be.

I know alot has been written about this topic and I have read as many posts that I can find but can not come to a solution for my problem.

Neither doors open with headlight sw out or the relay sw pulled to open. I have vacuum on the black hose when the light sw is off and vacuum on the orange hose when the sw is in the on position.

I pulled the green hose off of my driver side acuator tonight and the passenger side door opened? I put the hose back on and nothing happened. I pushed the headlight sw to off and the passenger door did not close with all hoses installed. I could not simulate a situation that would close the passenger side door. One note, the passenger side door seems easier to open and close by hand as compared to the drivers side. I have checked the doors for binding and have found no issues. As I said I have vacuum on both hoses on both actuators depending on the sw position. The actuators are the original ones and worked great before the restoration. Maybe they are dead now?? I have not checked the amount of vacuum on the hoses but will do that tomorrow. I was thinking that maybe the vacuum is getting "held up" by the drivers side actuator because it is faulty or hard to open so that is keeping the passenger door from opening. The reason I was thinking this way was due to the passenger door opening when I pull the green hose off the drivers side actuator?

If someone has a few tips for me to chase I would appreicate it. I thought for sure all of this would work once installed? It seems to be such basic circuitory but it has me baffled.

Read John's info under "Maintenance" Page 11.

Where is John's write up you are referring to? I can not find it.

The tach is the original.

My problems were solved once we put the battery in and used it as the power supply instead of the battery charger.

I guess the battery charger did not have the cleanest DC power and the fact that it was just 12 amps could have effected the gauges.

I hope to get the car on the road today.

698  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Tach goes to 2000 when ignition is turned on on: May 28, 2009, 06:04:07 AM
we took the harness out of the car inspected it, inspected all grounds, inspected the fuse box. Found no issues.

We have been using a battery charger as our power supply. (12 amp setting) Today we will put a battery in the car and see if that makes any difference. I hope we were just under charging the system and as a result were getting the erratic results.

I will post the results.

Put my wiring harness in and all is ok EXCEPT as stated above. In addition to the above in the subject line, my temperature gauge needle is gyrating at a high frequency when the key is turned on.

Any tips or a direction someone can point me in  so I can troubleshoot this would be great.

As always I appreciate the help.

sounds good to me.
701  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Oil line re install on: May 25, 2009, 09:29:56 AM
Ok thanks.

Where does the air go once the line is filled with oil pressure?
702  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Oil line re install on: May 24, 2009, 10:35:11 PM
I am reinstalling my oil line to the gauge cluster and wanted to know if I had to bleed the line of air prior to connecting to the gauge.

Thanks for the help!

Can you post the cost and turn around?

I am looking to do the same.
