  1. So if it is a dead spot on the Armature would it happen every time I try to start it? I can start it a few times and its fine engages right off the bat and starts. Then out of nowhere I get the "Click" and have to turn the key off and try again a few times before it will start. I've replaced the Solenoid one time each year on the mini starter because of this. After I replace it its good Until the next year. But its getting old
  2. It is a Mini Starter. Its not stock motor. When it does act up. I turn the Key and get a Single "Click". Its not a multiple of "Clicks".. I Turn key off and try again and get a Single "Click". Usually 3rd time Starts right up. Thank Guys,
  3. The old intermittent Starter click, click , does not engage issue is back, I thought it was resolved and it has returned. The only fix that works for a while is replacing the Solenoid which I have done each year, but its getting old. I do not think the driving the car only in the spring summer and fall heats up and kills the Solenoid. Yet Ive been having this issue and it seems to happen every year for past 4 years, I know the reason it is clicking is its not getting the full 12 volts at that time. But I dont know why and why it is intermittent. I wondered if it could actually be something with the Neutral safety switch. I read on another post somewhere "you should replace the neutral safety switch wires with 12 gauge wire" ? Or maybe it is something to do with the Rod on steering Column? But wouldn't that be dead and not getting a click? I am at the point where I dont want to but I am thinking of installing a relay since I cant figure it out. Any Suggestions appreciated. Thanks Usually starts and drives fine. Out of nowhere I get the "Click Click" when trying to start then after three or so tries she fires up. Happen's when Cold after it had started just fine. Good Battery , New Heavy Battery Cable's and Connections Ground is good and added ground straps from Motor to frame.

  7. Thanks Guys thats what I wanted to know, if I have a two series carrier and thats why the shim is in there and possibly why it is not centered. I was told it was a 3 series carrier years ago. I may leave it for now , I needed to know what I actually have. I want it to be right and I may change it to a 3 series carrier if I can find someone who actually knows how to do it later down the line. Or attempt it myself. I am not sure about that though. Thanks agian
  8. Thanks Guys. So it is a Chevy 12 Bolt. Here are some more pictures. The ring gear has a big spacer. I guess I need to measure to verify this is a 3 series carrier. I do not understand about the carrier not being centered. If this is normal than thats fine but seems like it should be centered. The ring gear has a spacer and I wonder if maybe it was supposed to be a different ring and pinion.. Here are some more pic's. Trying to look up the part specs by the numbers..
  9. Hello , I've had this 12 bolt rear end in the car since early 90's. (91/92) I bought the Housing and axles and the carrier and gears separately and had it built by someone I was told they knew what they were doing. I was told it was a 3 series carrier and I am running a 3.73 Gear. It may be built correctly I do not know that for sure.. When the frame was off the car we measured it and it measured square. When I was looking for wheels I was having trouble because the Driver side seemed inboard 3/8 to 1/4 and the Passenger side seemed outboard 3/8 to 1/4 . I never noticed or paid attention before. So I pulled the cover again and It appears the carrier was shimmed to one side in the 12 bolt. Drivers side is shimmed and in passenger side bearing sticks out enough I can read Timken on it. I am trying to figure out if it is actually a Chevrolet 12 Bolt carrier and if it is put together correctly . Too much reading and I am wondering if this is an Oldsmobile Housing? I have added some pictures with the cover off. I didn't find any numbers on the tubes but there are some on the housing. The Housing has two Straight ribs on the front. The Numbers I found on the housing that faces the engine were GM8 on the Left and and "3917124" NF" on the right side. On the side of the 12 bolt housing that faces the rear bumper I found L157 on the left site and what appears to be CON 1 on the right side. I can not find any info on the "CON 1" stamping. Below is what I found on the rest. http://www.myss396.com/ChevelleInfo/Differentials/Differentials.html L/15/7 ..........................................

  10. For sale 1 pair of lightly used 4 x 6 speakers. Only used them last summer. They fit fine I didn't like the sound. I ended up wedging coax speakers in Driver side. $40.00 + actual shipping cost . http://www.turnswitch.com/speakers.htm Original Delco 4x6 dash speakers for Chevelle shown on top. Notice the difference in the magnet size and location between the left and right speakers for instrument panel clearance. If you look close, you will also notice the angle brackets are in different positions on the driver side verses the passenger side speaker. The middle picture is our 4x6 speakers bolted to the dash speaker support brackets. (Stamped dash support brackets not included with our speakers.) The bottom picture shows our 4x6 speakers with the angle brackets. Our speakers with the angle brackets installed for Chevelle/Monte Carlo sell for $89.95 a pair.
  11. Wow your headers look even closer to the Proportioning Valve than mine are. What size Tubes are the Super Comps, te Patriots that are still on have 1 7/8 Tubes
  12. If you look at the Patriot and the Dougs yous see the Patriot is one tube in the front and the Dougs is two tubes in the front. I reinstalled the Patriot Passenger side and you can see "Lower Control Arm" Mounting ear sticks out. This is where the dougs #2 pipe wqas hitting.
  13. I was shocked since so many people have seemed to use the Doug's and they fit.. If you look at the picture of the Patriot next to the Dougs ... The Patriot #1 tube swings down and left. The Dougs #1 and # 2 swing down and left and follow each other ontop one another. We could not get the dougs flange on the head so come up and seal. Only other thing is I have Brodix Race Rite oval port heads. But believe the mounting is close to stock.
  14. So I purchased a set of Dougs headers from Summit Racing I made sure i could rerun them if there were any issues which I can. The Original Dougs 313 headers for the Big Block Chevy do not fit my 1971 Monte Carlo . I attempted to install the passenger side and I believe it was tube #2 is hitting the frame Horn that comes out for the Control arm. My old Headers - Headman that are from over 20 years ago fit. My current Header Patriot Exhaust H8024-1 fit. My issue was I thought the Patriot Exhaust H8024-1 Collector Flange was hanging to low from the floorboard. Long story short I was able to place 1/4 inch shim Under my transmission mount .......... It raised the header flange 1/2 inch closer to floorboards. I had added a G/V and a new G-Force Cross member. I had placed a jack under transmission and happened to be watching it at the correct angle I noticed the new G-Force Cross member actually has some give/Sag , when putting the weight of the transmission on it. Since I had both headers available I took pictures of both headers to compare if anyone is interested. The older rust headers in some of the pictures are my 25 year old original hedman headers.
