    Free baseplate

    You can have one of my old baseplates if you just want to make an ear for weld repairing your original part.

    Delco wires

    AC Delco outlets still sell TVRS plug wire set #508N. It's pre-cut for small block Corvettes with ignition shielding, and it costs about $25 locally.

    On any lowered '63-7 Corvette, you run the risk of breaking the fiberglass lip above your front tires when you hit a bump with the wheels turned. This I know for a fact.

    I would check for a hose that is swollen near-shut internally either under the gas tank or on the suction side of the fuel pump.
  5. For what little it's worth.

    Yes.

    I believe it is a factory stamped pad. I think the trim tag is real too.

    My previous post on another forum

    Starting around 1960, American began selling a 5-spoke wheel called the Torq-Thrust. The spoke crest of a Torq-Thrust wheel was straight all the way from the center to the rim. It did not clear disc...

    Buy the TT II

    Unfortunately, it isn't just a question of backspacing. Corvette disc brake clearance also depends on the shape of the spokes.

    I don't think I can explain American "D" wheel designs any plainer...
  8. I am covered with shame.

    My NCRS Spec Book is dated 1989, so I'll just shut up now.

    I'm going by the NCRS Specifications Guide, my memory, and the photo on the auction page showing a charcoal colored trunk interior.

    The NCRS Guide could be wrong or out of date. My memory is...

    Original black paint? I dunno about that.

    The darkest factory-offered shade I've seen on a '58 Corvette was "charcoal", a gray with high metallic content.

    That looks like a nice car, though....

    Exactly what does he want?

    A poster named "Roy A." asked a question similar to yours on the CorvetteForum a few weeks ago. This was my response:

    "I don't know if he is looking for manufacturers of reproduction nozzles for...

    When I've encountered truly frozen studs, the only way I've found to get them out is to use high heat.

    If you heat the metal around the stud to cherry red, it will expand the size of the stud...
  13. Nobody's perfect.

    The only two brands of carpet I've installed recently are ACC and Knoch. Back in the seventies and eighties there were other reproduction brands, but I don't think they're available now. I don't have...
  14. Difficult to view.

    Auctions like that are painful to even read. It has all the slimey weasel words and disclaimers in the world, but then goes on to promote the car as if it were perfect and rare.

    AS-IS!

    I'm...

    Better brace yourself. Many of the folks who bid high and early on expensive cars are bored 14 year-olds on Mom's computer. Most of the rest are dreamers who need their wife's approval to take a...

    Maybe I can save you some trouble.

    HEI springs are too long and will not return your mechanical advance weights to the idle position reliably.

    I've never noticed a difference in the number/size of motor windings between factory a.c. fans and the others. I believe any air flow difference would be due to the a.c. fan impeller design.

    It is a vent connection for cooling air to enter the winding housing from the a.c. evaporator case.

    Originally only factory air cars had motors with this vent hole. However, a service motor now...

    Percolation

    Your FI running problems at high engine temps (200 degrees is relatively high) are probably due to percolation in the FI distribution spider. The gasoline is actually vaporizing in the copper tubes...

    I'm pretty sure you would damage the wiring to the starter solenoid. You might also overheat your battery unless the heat shield is in place.

    You risk popping a front fender lip if you run a 215-70 AND turn the wheels hard while hitting a big bump. Unfortunately, I have known this for sure since one bad night in 1989. I would definitely...

  25. Yep, it's odd.

    But I don't think it's necessarily a scam. It sounds more like a used-up Corvette being sold by a couple of idiots. Both of them are afraid the boogerman will crawl out of the computer screen to get...
