Saw Wheeler Dealers work on a C5 last week.
https://www.motortrendondemand.com/det ... rvette-c5-z06/0_p35cu91u/
I get removing the Torque tube to change the clutch
I also get pulling the transaxle
But dropping the entire rear cradle with the suspension to change a clutch???

Did they at least change this on the later cars?

Must be brake month, now my 2009 Silverado 2500 is asking for pads.

What make are you running?

Not really interested in putting the stock pads back in, not enough initial bite.

Also being my winter ride daily driver, I was thinking of PFC's

Thoughts?

On the way home the light never came on.

I read the FSM, it's a differential sensor.
So I have a leak in the system, from the lack of fluid, I'm gathering the o-ring between the two circuits is going.

BTW the FSM has full instructions on rebuilding both the master cylinder and the booster, if you can get a rebuild kit.

Those 23 year old lines have never undone, they generally break and need to be replaced when they are that old.

I just need to figure out how far I want to pick at the scab.

I did by 6 piston calipers for the car, but I never put them on since they only fit my racing rims which will now not pass MA inspection do to the width.

Which means I'd need a different set of calipers, which need anyways since the old ones are showing their age.

Hello, how's everyone been?

Drove my Corvette ('95) to work today, went to take my exit and I noticed my "Brake Pressure" light was ON!

I slowed down and checked my brakes, which still worked.

When I go off the highway I turned it off and back on, the light went out but came back home later.

I check the fluid level, looked normal.

I looked underneath, no puddles.

I'm thinking either my booster or ABS module took a dump.

I'll dig out the FSM (factory service manual) when I get home.
I'm assuming ABS codes will come up on the dash.

BTW it's SUPERCHARGED and there is a check valve, but it of course could have gone bad

any advice?

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

It's been raining every day and windy to boot the past two. Supposed to rain through the week. All that has meant to me is I get to work in the rain. Knocking stuff off here one thing at a time. Mixing recovery efforts with regular work details.

This was no Andrew but the clean up and fix up will take months. In the Caribbean ... it will take years.


Best of luck

Need a replacement passenger side rear knuckle, actually like both

Any leads wear to get one?

I keep checking yards and the HotRodders keep snatching them up.

On a new one or the damaged one?

The damaged one is to far gone.

On a new one, not really necessary, just unscrew the mount.

The shocks are back from Penske.
Seems I was wrong, it did NOT bottom out.
The shock managed to take a side load.

Looking back I remember clipping an apex.
That may have started it to fail.
The pothole just pushed it over the edge.
The shock got twisted as the mount came apart.

Update

The shocks are off getting rebuilt with shorter rods
The upright is JUNK, cannot be repaired
Coming up with a different mount scheme

Of course that means buying 2 so they match.

Dropped the rear shocks and upright off

Here's hoping for good news

Seems obvious that the shock bottomed out before hitting the bump stops
I'm pricing some shorter rods

FINALLY!
My neighbor had length of steel pipe that I trusted as a cheater bar. That got the nut off

Got the upright off the car.

The damage looks weldable.
The shock on the other hand.
The rod is no longer centered in the body.
It probably got torqued.
I'll have to tear it down and see what's going on.

Went out and got a 3/4 drive breaker bar and appropriate socket

I'm STANDING ON it and it will won't move

Hit the end of the breaker bar with a sledge, still nothing.

Managed to break my breaker bar trying to get the stub axle nut off.

I'll get another one and perhaps another impact gun
My battery powered one won't cut it.

Bilsteins need to be rebuild in a pressure chamber

There's no valve to charge them

Looks like I'll be needing a new upright & mount

I should probably rebuild the shock as well

BTW these mounts are NOT as they are sold.
I needed to reposition hole to get the clearance I needed.
In the process the bolt holding the shock on no longer aligns with the former shock bolt location.
The induced torque is what twisted the end of the casting off.

I'm going to take it apart this weekend

My be able to get it welded

If not, I'll have to locate another stock upright & a coilover over mount which needs to be modified to clear my rod end links. Then have it all welded up again.

Not a good year for the Vette

1st I needed to get my engine oil leak under control
I rerouted the PVC, that helped out quite a bit

Then the supercharger pulley destroys itself from the engine torquing it into the frame rail

Now, driving around town to see if I got it all straightened out I hit pothole in front of a railroad track and the mount for my coilover shock got TORN OFF the upright!
