1956 Corvette - grinds while shifting to first gear I purchased a 1956 all original corvette this year. Runs well, but grinds when shifting into first gear. Took it to transmission shop and they rebuilt transmission, replaced clutch and flywheel. Still grinds, with no improvements after all the work. The transmission shaft is still spinning after shifting to neutral. Shop wanted to ream out pilot bushing, but never did. They also did not try this, but as I picked the car up after 4 months at the shop, they suggested putting a shim on the flywheel. Anybody experienced this issue on a vintage 3 speed vette? Any suggestions? Thanks John Enloe 1/2/2019 5:15:38 PM6
Engine oil for 1958 C1 Corvette I am a Brit who has just purchased a long awaited 1958 Corvette dream car. I have been scanning the internet for advice on a good engine oil to use in the beautiful old V8 engine. Any advice from owners of similar cars would be very much appreciated. I am only two weeks into ownership and I cannot stop smiling every time I look at this wonderful iconic car (-: James Daintith 11/18/2016 4:13:01 PM1

1962 MSD fuel injection system I am considering installing an electronic fuel injection system on my 1962. It has the original 250 horsepower engine with a 4 barrel carburetor and I have had trouble this hot summer with it vapor locking. Anybody out there have experience with electronic fuel injection systems on this car? I know Holly, Edelbrook and MSD make these systems. Dick Boyer 10/15/2013 10:11:36 AM1

Inter State Emission System Issues Differences in emissions regulations is between states is becoming a larger issue as more cars are sold on line and shipped across state boundaries. Does anyone know what is required to convert a new car with a Federal Emissions System to a 50 State or Massachusetts Compliant Emissions System? Rick 9/4/2008 6:21:13 PM4
