Re: Fresh paint chip repairs

If you have any paint left over from you re-paint, use it. If you had a shop do the paint job, go back and see if they have any of YOUR paint left over they will give you.

Round gauge swap wiring question

Hey guys, quick question. I'm swapping my long speedo for the round gauges and following the instructions on the home page. I'm looking at the new wiring diagram and am confused.

Re: A/C Vacuum Control Valve

I ran into the same thing in my car and worked on it for three nights before I figured it out. I even replaced the HVAC head unit and it still didn't work. Turns out, my line that supplied vacuum to the unit was stopped up with GUNK from the vac ball all the way to the unit. I tried cleaning it out ...

Gauge confusion

So I have been looking through the forum here for gauge information and have become a little confused. Currently in my '80 Malibu I have the sweep speedometer and blank clock space. 1. I know I can swap out the sweep speedo for the more popular round gauges. Will any year (78-87) Elco, Monte, Malibu...
