Re: Best Shop Manuals?

Thanks for the heads-up. I had no idea.


Clearly, GM does not want to sell a vehicle to me anymore.

Re: Proportioning valve bleed tool

Yeah, I know this is an old thread.


1. That tool has NOTHING to do with the "Proportioning Valve". It's intended to lock the Safety Switch in the neutral position. The proportioning valve,...

Re: Bad shocks or wrong tire size?

You may or may not need new shocks. The shocks are not causing the scraping problem.


You almost certainly need new rear springs. The original springs are extremely prone to cracking where the...

Re: What starter should I get?

Based on how it looks, it's an aftermarket knock-off of the PG260.

I hope you got the right starter bolts to attach it.

Re: What starter should I get?

When I wanted a starter motor, I'd go to the Treasure Yard, find one hanging on a Buick 455. Works great for 153-tooth flywheel Chevy engines, and the Big-Block Buick would have heaps and piles of...

First Guess: Factory "seconds" and "blems" from the various cut-rate Chinese suppliers.

Re: Go fast cable

I had it happen over, and over, and over...until I got smart enough to reinforce the gas pedal linkage rod that was bending on heavy throttle.

Re: Front coil spring and shock suggestions '77 No

Saw your "sticky" before posting.

I figure the aftermarket must have this figured out. Fairly sure that Eaton Detroit will be selling springs that are soft and tall; as that's typical GM OEM.

Re: Right Stuff 4 wheel disc conversion now no bra

Most master cylinders are tipped "up" in front.


They'll retain air at the front part of the pressure chamber (cylinder) and it will NEVER bleed out until you lower the front of the master...

Front coil spring and shock suggestions '77 Nova

When I went through the suspension of my El Camino about 25 years ago, I bought springs, sway-bars, Poly bushings and such from H-O Racing Specialties.

Re: Leaf springs for 1974 Nova

I bought the Summit springs for my '77.


Approximately stock ride height, maybe an inch lower. Problem is that the spring pack is thinner than original. I had to weld-up a spacer and install it...

Re: Squeaky over speed bumps 72 Nova

True for rubber bushings, not true for Polyurethane.


My El Camino squeaked terribly until I replaced the body bushings. The subframe on a Nova would be the same concept, just fewer bushings.

Re: Ignition Problems

As already said, the ignition switch is most likely. However it could be a loose connection anywhere in the circuit.

Do you have 13-ish volts on the "BAT" terminal of the distributor WITH THE...

Re: Neutral safety switch for 67 4 speed

1. That's not a "neutral safety switch". The switch has no way of knowing if the trans is in gear or in neutral. The switch detects whether the clutch pedal is pushed in. It's a "Clutch switch"....

Re: Pics of your suspension

Practically guaranteed that the rear leaf springs are broken. Leaf breakage on F and X bodies is epidemic.

Re: HEI vs MSD

"High Energy Ignition", or "HEI" is/was a GM tradename. As such, it absolutely was NOT a generic name for any random electronic ignition.

The HEI was one of, if not the first ignition system to...

The "Tall-Spindle" disc conversion is well-established on "A" body cars. I don't know if it can be used on earlier X or F bodies.

"I" would put the X-pipe far enough back that I could drop the trans without having to screw with the exhaust.
