Mike Levine - Engine, Suspension and Brakes
The Transmission is in and the bellhousing is dial indicted. Tilton triple disc clutch and flywheel installed. Quarter Master Hyd throw out bearing is installed, bled and adjusted. Next get the differential ready to install.
We don't have to worry about the Saginaw front brg coming apart, a 3.42 Z06 Diff is ready to install and now we can twist it past 7500 rpms when needed!
The last check without the springs.everything seems to clear, no binding! Corvair with CVs looks strange. Make the exhaust clear everything and we should go for a ride!
April, 2016 Update - CV Joints
I learned a lot about Racing CVs, you don't just run stock CVs even if they are C5 Vette. The housings need to be polished so the balls move freely,stock they build big heat. The boots need to be high temp silicone and vented. Normal CV grease won't hold up. Must use at minimum Swepco or Redline. GNK is the best but 70 bucks a tube. The inner joint builds the most heat as it plunged in and out. Low HP cars don't have an issue but the big Torque V8s do. The discolored balls have 27 race laps on them.
