1979 L82 4 Sp Manual. I see lots of very fine soot in the garage (storage, not repair) area, it makes me wonder if I have a hole in the exhaust system. What other signs would I have if that was the problem? BTW, "lot" is subjective... I guess I really don't know what the normal amount should be!
Vette(s): 1973 Orange Metallic Coupe (orig owner), L82, 4 spd (WR), PS, (A/C & PW (I installed from wrecked 73)), leather, AM/FM Stereo, ran with '65 FI unit earlier & will again some day.
Cars with converters typically have a lot of carbon inside the pipes. Mufflers usually have a small drain hole to drain excess condensation out of them and you might be seeing carbon come out with that moisture. As previously stated, check any joints for leakage.
