Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Not wanting to be guilty of failing to follow up on this, I was able demonstrate that the problem I was having on my GTC was that both front wheels locked up, but not the rears. Sent MC out for rebuild, and, upon return I was unable to bleed the brakes, tho' I've done this many, many times before. G...

Re: Fuel line clamps on 330 GTC

Jeez, John, I feel better already! (I thought the yellow hose was more than that!) Rubber hose it is...i'll leave the yellow hose to those more compulsive than I...if there are any. s

Re: Fuel line clamps on 330 GTC

Mustang?! Mustang?! Ba Humbug, it's a Corvette! I got the car (yeah, it really is a GTC) with rubber hoses to and from the E-pump, so I assumed (yeah, stupidly, I know) that's the way it was supposed to be. Early this AM, i got a note from Tom Martinez pointing to TAV 37 and thus recommending the (e...

Fuel line clamps on 330 GTC

what kind of clamp do you use on the rubber hose lines to and fro' the e-fuel pump? I assume they are Corbin. Best source? (I did find them at Grainger)
thanx. s

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

N.B. this has been X-posted on FC, tho' ironically, Tom's blog this week is so apropos. Gotta hallway pass this afternoon, so I had time to take the car out again, to see if I could reproduce the problem. After about 15 minutes of staying close to home, I could begin to feel the sense that the car w...

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Only bled the brakes yesterday: test in a day or two, 'round the neighborhood, so close to home. Hoses look great from the outside, but, like our Coronary Arteries, might be blocked on the inside. (hmmm....maybe time for "cabbage"!). For the moment I'm trying to get some info. Ultimately, the MC mig...

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Bob, I tried silicone years ago, and it was a royal pain (entrainment, I think it's called) when the bubbles could never be flushed from the system..it would be best, I agree, but that was no fun. s

Brake problem in my GTC

First, as usual, forgive me for X-posting with FC. My GTC runs great, stops great, steers straight, etc. For several months now from time to time, with the only consistency being that the car is fully warmed up (never from cold start), and I think only hot ambient temps (not too sure about that, as ...
