    Wow, judging from the msg's here, you are the go-to guy for tech! Mine is a little simpler, I hope. A member here wanted to convert his '67 four piston caliper to a '69 or later. You suggested having his four piston calipers re-sleeved in stainless for rebuilding, having one of the 'Vette sources doing the sleeving. Would you email the name and contact info of the guy you use for caliper re-sleeving? I have a '68 GTO with the four piston which is showing it's age. Thanks in advance for your help!

    If you recall I started a thread awhile back in regards to whether to use Points or HEI Ignition in the 65 GTO I am restoring. At that time you offered to set up my distributor for me on your machine. I was considering having this done and wanted to know how much it would cost.
    Thank You

    Hello Lars, thank you for posting the great tech article info. I have always had trouble finding TDC on my 71 Lemans and I have a new distributor to install. Would you please send me the articles How to find top dead center and How to install a distributor? I am hoping to get some tips on the distributor instal from you. I have only done it once and it was with help from a Haynes manual. Thanks, John . My email is pontibeast@gmail.com

    Hello Lars,

    My name is Mike. I'm having trouble getting a 1966 389 Tri-Power to idle properly.
    She original with the Rochesters. Both motor and carbs have been rebuilt to stock.
    Motor needed a bore 30 over. I am a body man and just a bit of a Mechanic. I have the motor close to at least staying running but she idles rough. If I turn the idle screw in more she idles pretty smooth but the rpms go up much more. Can you help me out on this. What am I missing, doing wrong, or not doing. I do not believe that there are any vacuum leaks but not exactly sure. What is the best way to check that. I got her to finally idle yesterday but rough. I drove her after getting her to idle and she run pretty good. This morning I started her up, she fired up good but the idle was way to high
    but smooth. I did not adjust anything before I started her up? I think I'm close Whats'happening?
    Thank You! MIKE My email is sportnfly@aol.com
