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!

How is your fuel line run from your mechanical pump ?
I've seen some ran under the engine over to the passenger side and up to the carb.
My distributor is up front so was wondering what others do.

I've used cork valve cover gaskets on my small block Chevy.  After a while they seem to leak.  What do you guys use to seal your valve cover gaskets?

First time I ever ran into this.  My truck has a 350 engine, it started making a whining noise that I thought was the idler bearing, replaced it, still noisy at certain times, replaced the serpentine belt and A/C delete pulley..still had the occasional noise. Had all of these parts (used) on hand.

Could swear the noise was up front with hood open, but from under the truck sounded like it could be in the area of the starter.  Suspecting the distributor did an Internet search and learned that SBC distributors occasionally have bearing problems.

Again I have several distributors on hand so I just swapped it...Noise Is Gone!

The bad distributor still turns smoothly by hand....but is now tagged bad.

FYI!

Well I got my 4L60E rebuilt and was trying to install the torque converter as instructed, turn and twist until it sets three clicks. I did this and eventually got it installed where it felt seated. The videos I looked at all said to mount the trans to the block and then line up the converter bolt holes with the fly wheel first by spinning the converter by hand to line up and install the first bolt and then rotate the engine to line up the other two. The problem is the converter will not spin. I took it back down and removed the converter and reinstalled to see if I did  something wrong. When I get the converter in to where I think it should be, it will not turn. Any guidance is greatly appreciated, thanks.
