General Discussion / Speedometer gear fell inside muncie
« on: May 26, 2018, 03:45:54 PM »
Ok I screwed up I could not get the speedometer cable off so I pulled the gear housing. I was attempting to change to the right gear to make the speedometer correct! Speedometer gear fell into the transmission M2. i tried for two hours to fish it out laying on my back, no sucess.
I installed a new gear and drove it home about a mile.

Suggestions please?

Can the plastic gear just stay in the trans?

General Discussion / Inspection Services
« on: May 19, 2018, 05:39:34 PM »
I recently purchased a 1967 Camaro and had it shipped to me from Denver. Before my purchase I googled classic car inspection services for Denver. I called and talked to one with great ratings the inspector Gary assured me he had the knowledge and experience to do the job and give me a honest opinion of the vehicle.
I asked him to check it out well, body, electrical and mechanical, he said he always does. He called me after his inspection and said the only two things were tires showed some wear and the interior was original. Told me it was worth more than they were asking.
Upon his advice I negotiated a purchase price arangened payment, had the car shipped to me.
The car came with starter fluid and needed a shot before it would start for unloading.
Well now the known issues.
I had to replace the carburetor
Car is leaking oil bad at fuel pump gasket. I will replace Next week.
No back up switch on transmission. Installed today
Defroster control is broken will replace soon
Radio and tachometer would lose power when the clutch was pushed all the way in. Rerouted wiring this morning
Gas gauge does not work properly, will replace sending unit next week
Gas tank leaks, has a bolt stuck in it, will replace next week
Brakes were pulling to the right bad. Front end noise. Tie rod was fixing to fall off tightened, adjusted brakes and reinstalled rear springs properly.
Spitting coolant out after driving each time. Radiator needs roded out, on list to have done.
Speedometer is off says 55 doing 64 ordered proper gear to correct.

Ok you get the idea.
Needless to say I stopped payment to the inspector with my credit card company.

The good body is in great shape, no real issues.

Learn from my experience, if you hire an inspector do not hire Gary!

General Discussion / Gas gauge off
« on: May 13, 2018, 01:58:00 PM »
My new toy 67 model  started to run out of gas at 1/4 tank reading. When I filled it up it registered 1/4 over full.
Can the needle be removed and reset to cure this issue or does the gauge need replaced? The gauge is working, just off.

Still working out a few bugs on my 68 RS SS. At what speed should the powerglide transmission shift from low to drive. It currently shifts at around 45mph with a little help from my foot on the throttle.

Maintenance / Gen Light
« on: April 11, 2010, 11:03:03 PM »
The Gen light on my just restored 1968 RSSS 350 does not come on until the car is running. Sometimes right away other times after driving 30 minutes. I have had the alt, checked ok changed the voltage regultor, checked all the connections and ground. I have not checked the dash circiut board yet. Any suggestions before I pull the dash out?
