Hey everyone!

I wanted to thank all the great people on this forum for providing extremely useful information for the questions that I have had so far. Slowly but surely I am getting my 73 running properly. I was wondering if anyone has a decent Diagram of the L48 350 V8 Engine that is in my car. Though I know where most of the parts are and what they are, this is the first mechanical engine car that I have ever owned and would love a simple reference for when I am working on it.

I thank all those who respond to this post and wish everyone happy motoring!

You really need to get a service manual - check on ebay or one of our vendors like: http://www.mamotorworks.com/corvette?frame=4.197

HUH? moving up from the squirrels are we?
(just kiddin!)

Anyway...a Factory Service Manual is the best thing you can have for that sort of info, along with the AIM(Assembly Instruction Manual). The AIM shows how all the parts of the car go together, the FSM shows how to do all of the servicing of the vehicle, including the engine/drivetrain. Of course, any questions you may have can always be posted at C3VR...someone will always have an answer...sometimes even the right answer!

Welcome to C3VR, btw.
