Default Thread updated

Added a few new posts, one for garage / lift and safety items.
Also added an overheating post, those questions should start soon, at least we all hope they will as that means the snow is gone!!!!!!

If you see something that should be added, please post a link. I tried to group things togetner alphabetically, some may be a bit off but believe it's a good start.
Bruce, As a new corvette owner and new member....this is absolutely awsome. One source to find anything I need to know.

Thanks!!!

Transmission shift shaft snapped (shifter and linkage install process warning):

http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c1-a...st-gear-2.html

The message to take away from this is: do NOT use a socket/drive to install the transmission shift levers to the transmission shift shafts. Without much torque at all, I snapped my reverse shaft. Use a wrench or better yet a torque wrench and know how much is "enough".

The Tech Tips section once available has not been accessible for updates for quite some time because the software used to create the material is no longer supported and is not compatible with the vBulletin software that runs the Forum.

It's not as critical in this section as in others because of the great compilation work done by bweaver999, but I'm posting these links provided by C4Cruiser in each generational section.

Restoring the Tech Tips section is on a long list of “to-do” items to try and resurrect the section, but has not made it to the top of the priority list as yet.

C1-C2 Related Tech Tips:
http://web.archive.org/web/200312201....php?TopicID=4

C3 Related Tech Tips:
http://web.archive.org/web/200310031....php?TopicID=3

C4 Related Tech Tips:
http://web.archive.org/web/200402021....php?TopicID=2

C5 Related Tech Tips:
http://web.archive.org/web/200306041....php?TopicID=1

Cross-generational Tech Tips:
http://web.archive.org/web/200402030....php?TopicID=5

Mike Schriber Reviews:
http://web.archive.org/web/200312201....php?TopicID=6

If you want to post newer tech tips, please post a link to them in this thread. If you know of other tech tips already posted, post a link here to them as well. That should make the task of getting the Tech Tips on track much easier when we get the necessary window of opportunity to make it happen.

Thanks.

If you have the tank sticker, if it was a K-19 car, it will show in the option listing as "02K19XX", where "XX" is two letters; post those two letters and I can tell you which engine it was. The engine is also shown in the same column, second item from the top of the column.

I didn't see anything similar to this in here. If it is duplicate then delete. I have needed this information on several occasions. It has almost every VIN/serial/stamp/casting number for c1&c2 corvettes.

Any idea on what is the correct color of the 61 seat adjuster assembly should be?
