  1. In changing rear gear ratios (to 3.42) the 350TH trans output shaft drive gear and the speedometer driven gear also required a change to have speedometer read correctly. These gears are color coded for teeth count. So, what color gear/teeth count do I need? Thanks, Ed Wieder, ejw71
  2. Where can I buy an installation kit to mount the alternator, steering pump and A/C compressor? Thanks, Ed

    TH350 with a LS

    Thanks for all the info. Ed
  4. I'm going to install a LS engine in my '71. My intention is to use its TH350 trans (of course beefed up). Please send me your pros and cons on this. My pros are no computer control of the TH350 and with proper placement of the LS the TH350 can use its stock trans cross member, mount and driveshaft. Or am I singing Dixie? Thanks, Ed Wieder, ejw71
  5. What is the conversion factor for 1/8 mile time to quarter time. If a car does the eighth mile in 9 seconds, what would its quarter mile time be? Thanks, Ed

    Re; 72 SS

    My view is to let them rant on. I would advise someone as to the true nature of the car only if I was asked. Of course, this asumes that I know the true nature of the car. Some of you might remember me (favorably or unfavorably) as Sgt Ed of the SS454 Police. Yea, been away work'n on old GMs. Ed

    Tube Frame

    What firm(s), if any, makes a tube frame for the FGs? Thanks,Ed
  8. This is a different leak problem than the one I explained in another post. The car is on level ground and I can see auto trans oil dripping to the ground. This leak will reduce trans oil by about three quarts in about 1-2 weeks. I traced the leak to where the filler tube enters the case. I'm certain the filler tube has an "O" ring on it. The trans cooling lines and the exhaust pipe prevent me from seeing actually where the oil is coming from. Maybe the "O" ring has gone bad, doubtful as trans was rebuilt two yrs ago. Suspect the case is cracked where the filler tube retaining bolt enters case.
  9. Thought I was going mad thinking that nothing happened to the car and the b...h starts to leak right when I have other things to fix. Finally decided that the oil draining down reaches areas where it can leak out. Suspect it leaks out at the filler tube case junction. Ok what's the next problem. Motto: If you have one car you'll have X problems. If you have N cars you'll have NX problems. Yep, that simple. Of course, this is independent of the brand. Thanks for the help. Ed
  10. I think I remember weighting a 71 Monte steel hood, 200lbs, in 1995. Key word in last sentence is think. Ed
  11. We are all aware of the a/c hose that crosses the motor to attach to the a/c compressor on the left side. What I want to do is to elimate this. What Chevy, if any, (Chevelle, etc) had the a/c compressor on the right side of the motor, thereby not having the unsightly a/c hose across the motor? Thanks, Ed
  12. I found them at Chevrolet Restoration World M305500 24.50 pair. Ed
  13. Where can I purchase the rubber inserts for the front bumper guards? Thanks, Ed
