A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy and GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early Chevy's is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

I'm thinking the center to center distance of SBC frames mounts might vary depending on motor (block) mount designs. Just pulled the 305 out of my sons 37 sedan and need to redo them. They are at slightly different heights ???. The 305 had really thick motor mounts bolted to the block, I want to use the thinner style on the new engine that will lower it.

Whoever hog'd in the mounts used a spacer on the passenger side to move the mount inward. If I use the shorter mounts, the spacer shouldn't be needed.

I do have an empty SBC mock-up block and empty 700R4 for driveline setup. Just wondering if there might be a reference site with "eye to eye" measurements for the different thickness motor mounts?

Just popped the 305 engine out of my sons 37 Chevy. The drive line was just sitting in there ...wrong driveline angle etc.

Anyway the Powerglide was attached to a 1985 305 engine...before I get rid of them would like to ID the tranny , year, application etc.  What is the location for any suffix codes on the 2 speed trans?  It has the longer tail shaft (14.25) like used on the vettes...just want to understand what I have before getting rid of it.

Thanks
Ed

Here's a couple quick questions for you guys who have gotten as far as interior work. I made panels out of 1/8" luan and want to cover them in foam-backed black vinyl. What's a good foam thickness? I see 1/8", 3/16" and 1/4. I don't want the padding to be too think or look too plush. Also, has anyone used a non-commercial sewing machine to stitch up their upholstery with any success? Thanks.
