  1. 10W40 works well with the hot summertime temps....
  2. Looking for suggestions on what oil to use in my 2007 V star...Been using the Yamalube oil since new..Would like to change to something I can easily get from the local auto parts store...(has a wet clutch) Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated......
  3. Last Indian, Thank you very much for the info....Will try to put it on the rack sometime next week to check to be sure it is still in spec....(hit a really nasty pothole awhile back was too late spotting it and couldn't avoid it)..The main thing I was wondering was if the 1LE had different specs...But apparently it doesn't ... So I'm good to go.....
  4. Happy to help....Good luck with you project TLB..
  5. 1976...Should drop in with no problem..with the F body V8 engine mounts and related accessory mounting brackets..ETC..Just make sure that all the bolt holes in the ends of the cylinder heads are on the same side as the original so there will be no issues with the accessory brackets... power steering... AC ...alternator... ETC..
  6. If it is an original 1966 model Chevrolet small block engine it will be either a 283 or a 327 CID..If it has never been rebuilt it will need to have hardened valve seats installed in the cylinder heads to be compatible with today's unleaded gas...Will also more than likely ( unless it has been changed ) have the breaker point distributor rather than a HEI unit..Also unless it has been converted over it will still have the cartridge type oil filter which can pain in the #$s to change and could potentially create a clearance problem with the 3rd gen F body platform...Whereas the 1980 model will already have the hardened valve seats...HEI...and a canister type oil filter....among other things...
  7. The factory specs are what I'm looking for...The car handles great and has no problem going where it is pointed..Under certain rare conditions mostly speed related it has a slight understeer but that is easily overcome by adding a little bit of throttle to bring the rear around...I can also change the handling characteristics by playing with the Yellow Koni adjustable shocks... I have the original owners manual and all the related paperwork that came with the car new....But if would like to attach the digital version that would very cool and I would appreciate it....
  8. Does anyone know what or where I could find the factory front end alignment specs for a 1997 Firebird Formula 1LE ...Are they the same as the standard WS6 or are they different..?? Any help or recommendations would be greatly apreciated.....
  9. Yes met up with GE...Hung out for awhile....Didn't really come across any treasures...or good deals..Did see alot of overpriced junk though...Also saw quite a few way over priced cars...I figure they're not really for sale because it is the same cars and owners....(Want #1 money for #4 condition cars) that have been there for the last few years trying to sell... Although I did run across a Can Am.... If I had somewhere dry to put it...I probably could have worked on the guy for awhile and got it for a fair price... It was kinda rough but all the key parts were there and did sort of crank up and run and was (with alot of work) very restorable...Seems that over the last couple years the attendance has been kind of off a little bit compared to what it has been in the past....Will hit it again in September.....
  10. Welcome to the site......Cool cars.....Have had mine for along time too....still like them as good now as the day they were new.... (96 V6 firebird and a 97 WS6 formula 1LE )
  11. Not really looking for anything special...But you never know..... Yes if you would like to PM me that would be cool.... I understand....I've been told by several people through the years....That I might need some sort of highly specialized therapy too....(LOL)...
  12. I'm going to try to get there Saturday By 8:00 AM myself...The track is about 45 minutes away (Depending on the traffic) from the end of my driveway...Would be interested meeting up with GE....Or any other members who might be in attendance.....
  13. Was wondering if anyone out there will be attending the auto fair at the Charlotte speedway April 4th thru the 7th...??
