Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

Removed the PS Pump today so I can put a new shaft seal in it
before trailering Her down to CTC in October. Brand New pump,
but was shelved for almost 2 years, = leaks like me after having
several Margaritas. Mailed my registration off today so the 72
& the 00 will both be headed south just 2 months from today!

Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

Napa, turns out the shaft was installed crooked. (Defect from factory)

I'm getting a New pump Mon. (This is a 95ish Serp Set-up, not OEM)

I guy in Cali made it, I was excited to get it even though
I think it was overpriced. I'm probably going to chalk it up
as a loss because it fits like crap at the ends and I'm not
sure that a fiberglass guy can fix it like it is. Live & Learn

Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

Not sure on the pans, but I think so. I didn't have to replace mine
since they are OE. I know "Ron 586" is putting a whole floor pan in
his 2wd using that replacement Goodmark truck floor 1 piece unit.

PS - Drove it to dragstrip last Friday night, gotta do something on
those Cool headlights to mod them a lil, they suck ass at night, lol.

Your Blazer is why mine is at the shop. They had a car show there and throw it together just for the show. It is the "Grey Ghost" for now. Primer is to a color!!!!!

Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

No updates. Life has happened and it's just sitting in the
shop covered on skates. In a 3 month period I had three
vehicle breakdowns, (Only afford to fix 2 out of 3 = $700)
garage spring & garage opener, ($400) pet wireless died,
($300) hot tub breaker blew, ($50) $15K in Hail damage,
& Wife's needed tires. ($1250) so savings is emptied now.

Hoping to have it down at CTC in October, but not 4 sure
cause "Gas Hog" is still broke down and it's my Tow Rig. It
needs around $1500 in repairs. (Cam, so lifters and P rods)
