    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...

    Just a foot note to this thread, I checked my speed using GPS app, and it shows that I'm going about 3 mph faster than my speedo says. Possibly the gears were changed since L48 Vettes in 79 only ...

    Well, at 60 I was at 3000 rpm. according to tire chart I found, with 225/70/15 tires they should be 27.4". So according to the chart you provided I have 4.11's. If that were the case, the gears...

    Thank you Tom, I scoured the net for something like this. I know there are codes, and rpo's but gears can be changed. Thanks again.

    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.
  9. 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...

    Well, my backup lights work, the turn signals work also but the green dash lights that indicate do not. I am concerned that the dash will have to be removed if the bulbs are burned out.

    Ok, so there is a fuse for just those indicator lights?
  12. Turn signal indicator lights do not work, in my 79

    I just picked up a 79 L48/350hr/370:1 gears. Paint is original, and great, interior is very good, all original. 67,000 miles. It has the original exhaust as well, I'm getting duels on Thursday. I...

    Thanks. I've about given up on buying this car. The bumper cover was the deal breaker.

    Ok, so I missed something. I didn't know about the reinforcement, but I've never removed a bumper cover either. Will it damage the cover if I attempted to remove it?
  15. I read the article. Unless I missed something...

    I read the article. Unless I missed something the article was about repairing polypropylene, not polyurethane. Polypropylene is thermal plastic, meaning it has a melting point, then it's molded. ...

    This might sound far fetched, but If I carefully backed the car into a towel wrapped poll until the bowed out spot is where it should be, and carefully heated the stressed area until it conformed...

    Your observation about the pulled out bumper cover was very astute. The possible paint damage that could occur if I try to straighten it is very possible, and I don't know what the bumper was like...

    This one is mine. Compare the bumpers and the bottom edge. I see the red one is pulled out. I am considering buying the red one. They are both 77's.

    could this be done without removing the cover? I've never removed one, but I've heard they don't always go back on nicely.
  20. wave in urethane bumper cover, can it be worked out?

    I've been trying to upload a pic of the rear of a 77. There is a wave where the lettering is in the urethane, and I would like to find a way to get it out.

    I've been shopping for another vette, and I came across a 77 L48. Seems like a nice enough car, but I hear a noise in the tail pipes when running. Hard to describe a sound like this but it's a...
