    Before I red your post I replaced the thermal switch with a brass plug, and plugged the vacuum hose that goes to the canister. I drove it about 15 miles, and everything seemed ok. I could put the...

    Are you saying if I plug my hose leading from the EGR to the canister will result in a vent issue with the gas tank?

    The wheels I have are polished, not brushed, so they must be 80 - 82 wheels. I like the way they look, and they don't look out of place, so I'm gonna call it good. If I had my choice, I'd go with...

    Boy those are nice! Mine look like 80-81, but of course mine is 79, and I just can't help to wonder how they got there. BTW the inside of the slots are painted.

    Correct wheels on my 79

    I recently picked up a 79 Vette in very good original condition, but I noticed the wheels, the slotted aluminum ones do not have black centers like they should have. Maybe they put 1980 wheels on at...

    Replacing lighter "scocket"

    I am attempting to remove the (female) part of the cig lighter. I was told by the vendor that it unscrews, but it just seems to turn around and around. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks Tom, I checked the GPS app with two of my other modern cars, and it was spot on, so I can say I have confirmed the speeedo is off in the Vette by 3 mph. This spring I will have it on a hoist...

    Yes, It is best to count the turns by spinning the tire, although I don't have a lift, or a floor jack. Thanks, I'll figure it out.
  21. Can rearend gears be gauged by speedometer/tachometer?

    I'm trying to figure the gearing in both of my Vettes. I'm revving about 3000 at 70 mph in my 77, and I rev 3400 at 70 with my 79. So far I've read that in 79 L48 with automatic trans came with...
