A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and any GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early GM vehicles is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

A couple years I bought an ACDELCO ARM602-4 "torque cube" to predominately calibrate my click torque wrenches.  My click torques wrenches are only good up to 100lbs and the ACDELCO cube took care of my needs up to 147 ft lbs.

Tried to use the cube the other day and the audible "beep alert" stop working...that feature is a must as you are torquing.

Anyway it's out of warranty and I contacted ACDELCO requesting the repair process, they responded that they don't do any cube repairs and pointed me to the manufacturer DUROFIX 909-980-3323...of course Durofix isn't responding.

So here I am..I would like to purchase another electronic torque cube (not an ACDELCO) and was wondering if you guys have any experience with the other brands...(ie Quinn @ Harbor Freight etc)

I had a couple of surgeries last year and the car sat up about 8 months, then I had it painted. I have now reassembled it and also replaced a crimped brake line.  I bleed the brakes until I had just fluid and the pedal was building.  But when I crank it up the pedal goes to the floor and stays there. I suspect the MC.  What do you think?

been chasing a gremlin,   whenever engine is at full temp starts bogging losing all its power... runs like junk.

runs like a raped ape cold and leading up to operating temp.

carb is brand new ,  clear fuel filter is always full Im certain its not a fuel issue any more (swapped the Rochester for edelbrock)

Main question:  What are the main possible culprits for running bad when warm ?

Spark plug wires would do that, not the plugs them selves i would think?

Engine compresion ,   maybe worn valve seals not doing their job when engine gets up to temp ?

I want to stray away from replacing things that arent subject to change with temperature.

points wouldnt do that ?  conderser wouldnt ??     My spark plug wires are few years old but none of them shock me...

It seems my only options are to change the spark plug wires and do a compression test with engine warm.

can anything think of anything else ?
