    1973 Saginaw / Clutch and Spline questions

    Ok, I apologize in advance for the newbie question. I have a stock 1973 Camaro with a 350 ( L-48 I presume because of the 2 barrel carb). I'm 90% sure its a Saginaw 4 speed ( main transmission casting: 3925656, plus a magnet will stick to the case, so it's not aluminum). I need to order the...

    Old parts...keep them, sell, or recycle?

    Thanks guys, I'll consolidate the parts and store them. Its ultimately a space issue that is driving my concern. Meaning, I'm running out of space. Also, because its a 73 LT, I'm not sure it will gleam the same collectible status as completely original Z28. The rarest option on my car seems to...

The Fitech will give me a manifold temperature between 160-190 normally operating, while the analog dash gauge will be in the 200-210 range. I also replaced the block temp sensor...

    What is a good discount?

    I’m refreshing a 73 LT, and want to time my larger purchases with the right discounts for the sites I’m targeting. I’m in no rush for most items, therefore I can wait it out if there are once a year or twice a year big discount specials. I see the occasional 20-30% with exclusions, but is that...
