Restoration / Re: New disc needed for Hays Borg and Beck clutch
« on: March 30, 2021, 12:45:46 PM »
I have a 2014 ZL1 engine and 6 speed.  It has a LUK clutch in it from the factory. 

I think the guy on FB was hoping someone gave him a lawyers name.  Several came up with the same guy. 
I agree these guys are not doing much homework

Saw a guy on FB today asking what he should do after he has bought what was advertised as a L89 and not he found the block is restamped and I believe it had a fake protecto plate.  Dealer sold it to him.  Had to be expensive mistake. 

Vince I was just thinking about your old car last week.  I have not ran across it anymore.  I would have gave it a good home but just didnt work out.

Its one of the few I have seen with trim rings on the dog dish hub caps also

Neat car

It did not have the factory transmission which to me isnt as big as the engine but I did have a problem with the floors being replaced and no drain holes.  wonder what other sheet metal had been replaced?
It really needed the springs changed and I believe the wheels were repops.  Not major things but you hate to get a car that looks that nice on the outside and have to start changing stuff

I had a new 84 Trans am with the HO motor and 5 speed.  That thing would not get out of its own way.  Dark blue with the silver aero package.  Looked good but that was about it lol. 
For those of you that swapped motors, what did you do with the computer just get rid of it?

126,000 and it looked like someone in house bought it.  That would be 8%, phone bidder was 10%.  They got 11% for online but pretty sure it was not online

Will our trade ins be worthless?  That will be a problem if they decide to take our diesel farm equipment away.  No one will want to buy a new line up of equipment.  I have heard mechanics say the air coming out is cleaner than the air going in

I read the company that owns Edelbrock and Comp Cams are movingEdelbrock from California to Mississippi.  Comps headquarters were in Tennessee and sounded like that is moving to Mississippi also

Young man found something pretty neat that someone would want. Sounds like he had no interest in selling it when I messaged him info

My burgundy car has white stripes and black interior and is built before this.  Seems strange most have white unless there was a way they were specified and would it not kick in the dash for special paint on the tag??

In my opinion on why they would swap the tag, a black car is more desirable than a fathom green with green interior to me.  (no offense green car guys)  Not saying thats what it was but thats a guess.  I compared the tag to mine and some in Jerrys book and seen differences. I am not an expert on tags like some of the guys here but I noticed differences.  Find some examples of tags near that build date and you will find them.
I still would be concerned with some other things on the car but will leave those to the experts.  Things on this car are not consistant with others

Should the transmission vin and block vin be stamped with the same stamp?  I thought they should have been but wanted to ask. These dont look like they match
