Vette(s): 1974 L-48 Auto.
Just your basic Vette. GM crate motor w/vortec heads and intake. Crane cam. Scorpion rockers, Edelbrock carb. Lots of parts still in boxes... :(
Well, it's probably a bad sign that I can put the car on jackstands and have the rear end out and sitting in the bed of my truck in 2 and a half hours. It means I've officially put that suspension together too many times.
On the other hand, the rear is definitely toast. I don't know how I could have missed it when I put the car back together. In January, I posted about the driveline binding when the car was in the air... I think I have the smoking gun. It's clunking and binding when I turn it by hand. Ugh.
So it's off to the machine shop this afternoon. $700 and a few weeks from now, I'll have it back with 3.08 gears in it which should drastically improve highway cruising.
Wish me luck. Not so much with the car, but when I tell the wife that I'm spending another $700 on it...
