I can answer this question based on experience with numerous never-driven C4's in NCRS:

Lumbar bladders will be rotten and need to be replaced.

Bronze wool is mo bettah' than steel wool. Doesn't leave any residue to rust no matter how careful you are at cleaning it. I don't even buy steel wool, or keep it around the shop. I get bronze wool...

I'm with Tom. What does the "sludge" look like? What color?

It's full of holes from the Greenwood chit. It has no appeal to me whatsoever. "Mark it Zero".

I like the way a 6-speed C4 drives. Different, and more enjoyable than the 4+3 which I've owned for 33 years.


I did a clutch in a 92 6-speed a couple of years ago for one of my yacht clients...

I see what looks like an aftermarket harness on your swap. Cool.

Here's an off the wall observation based on studying the JTR "How to swap GM EFI engines". They spend some time discussing the Park...

Hood release stays there. There is a wire plug to the courtesy light. Kind of fussy if you don't want to break the tabs. And an air duct which isn't too fussy. Finding all the screws buried in the...
