I hate to put this out there, but I need an answer and I can't see my car currently.
 
What is the correct red-line for the tach on my car?  It is a '74 L-82 with A/C.  I have options of 5300, 5500 or 6K.  I beleive it is the 5500, but just not sure.  Per the interchange manual, it would be the same as the tach for the 454 for that year. 
 
L-48 and L-82 without A/C were both different, so understanding those could potentially help as well (my guess is L-48 is 5300 and L-82 w/o A/C is 6K)
 
Thanks

I'm thinking 5600.  I don't think anything with hydraulic lifters had a 6000 redline.

When I got home tonight, I dug through some pictures, and although it looks closer to 5600, I figure it is the 5500.
 
Thanks everyone

Hi, I'm BRAND SPANKING NEW here, and have no idea how this posting business goes......But speaking of DUMB questions, I have one!

Can someone please tell me how to remove the ash tray receptacle from a 1978 Silver Anniversary Edition? It seems to be catching on something right before I am able to totally remove it. Is there a trick to it that I'm just not seeing?

Please help!  Thanks! :)

Hi Wendy, Welcome to C3VR! The ashtray should pull straight up. Try rocking it side-to-side as you pull up. Let us know if you are still stuck or if you need help with anything else.

There is a spring clip on the side of the ashtray insert. Just make sure it's not catching on the side of the console so nothing gets damaged.

Just checked mine - the spring clip is on one of the long sides of the ashtray.  It should just pull out with a little tug.  Smile  No such thing as dumb questions.

Hello "hot chick" and welcome to the Club..

There is such thing as a dumb question,only dumb question "is the one that is not asked"..Feel free to ask whatever question or whatever is on your mind this is the best group of people you will encounter with helpful thoughts, answers,suggestion,and technical advice.
You have a great day in Simi Valley,one of my favorite places to live in CA. I lived in Ventura, Thousand Oaks, Northridge, and traveled all over SOCAL.
Take care and again WELCOME..

We're here to help.
I've had answers to almost everything C3 related from this site. About 90% of repairs to my '82 came from others here who had the issues before. YouTube is another source for C3 video repairs. Used that a couple of times as well. And one more thing if you haven't done it already: buy yourself a shop manual for your C3 year. Then ask the folks here to share wiring diagrams specific to your year C3. 

Most of all...welcome! Sit back, relax, pop open a beer, listen in...
