    I have an Edlebrock Performer intake, however, from what I understand, power increases are negligible. The stock intake is aluminum, and already pretty good. Changing the heads, and a true-dual...

    GTR1999,

    The horseshoe clip is there, holding the rubber hose, but is not visible at that angle. The e-brake clip has sheered off, and apparently that isn't the first time. It looks like somebody...

    Well, I had great success using a Heli-Coil. I know that wasn't the recommended fix, but the packaging for the Heli-Coil kit even said it was great for caliper mounting brackets. It was so much...

    Thanks for the info guys. Wish I didn't have to press out (and then in) the bearing to get the bracket off... I might as well just replace it if I went that far, which I don't want to do. Wish me...
  7. Stripped brake caliper mounting bolt hole

    I had to replace my right-rear caliper last week, but when I went to tighten the right mounting bracket bolt (towards the front of the car) it didn't feel "right." I decided to check on it again and...

    Fantastic replies from all. You guys are absolutely correct in that the Mity-Vac is a waste of time. I had my girlfriend pump the brakes as I bled and it got MUCH better. The brake light even went...
  13. Bleeding brakes on my '81. Pro tips anyone?

    After discovering the brake fluid in my vette was at least 6 years old, and seeing that it was no longer clear, I decided I wanted to change the brake fluid out. The method I was going to use was...

    :cool!:

    I found that the stainless steel tube going to the top tee connector (I think it links to the transmission??) was also leaking. The rubber piece connecting the manifold to the tube was...

    Yoda gave me my still-sticking nickname here on the CAC. I was 16 or 17 at the time, and he has always been the first person to jump in and help when I have a question. He also is the first person I...

    Thanks Antz81; it's all FINALLY starting to make sense. It should be 17081228 for a non-CA automatic Corvette. Apparently 17081222 is off of 5.0L automatic Malibu, Impala, Caprice, El...

    Okay, I got the new TPS in, and it has been adjust to .56v. Also a new accelerator pump, and air horn gasket. It doesn't seem to have cured my problem, but the rough idle seems slightly better. I...

    Thanks Gerry!

    For those following along, I've decided to partially rebuild the carb. New TPS and accelerator pump for sure, and maybe even more if I'm feeling particularly brave. I'll report back...

    I just dug up the records I have on my 'vette. Looks like the carb was rebuilt and a new TPS was put in 12 years ago, and 12k miles. I wonder if the modern gas has caused an issue?

    I found this...

    E4ME air horn gasket

    Anybody know where I can get an E4ME air horn gasket? Looks like I need to replace my TPS, and while I'm in there I might as well change the gasket as it appears to be leaking (see photos of wet...
