    fast-fill master cylinder?

    The link below shows him keeping the G-body master cylinder versus swapping in a B-body master along with the booster. Knowing that the B-body master would be perfect for this upgrade along side the upgraded B-body booster, I just could see why that it wasn't part of the upgrade...

    fast-fill master cylinder?

    Sorry for a late posting on an old thread, but this would be the correct spot to ask. I have a 1980 Monte that I am looking to change out the MC due to the pedal hitting the floor. I was looking to upgrade since I need to change the MC anyway. I could swap my MC with a 24mm bore to a step-bore...

    Fuel Tank replacement suggestions

    A spectra tank doesn't have this issue?

    Fuel Tank replacement suggestions

    It seems like a difficult task to swap out the filler neck from the tank. Seems like a solid unit. The one peice design gives the filler neck support. Not sure how you could separate the two.

    Fuel Tank replacement suggestions

    I am pretty convinced about the design of the filler neck. I am ready to throw down $200 for a new tank without these issues. With the money I am losing in spilled gas, I would be ahead in a few months. I have a 383 stroker pumping out 462 HP with a fresh paint job and spilling gas everywhere is...

    Fuel Tank replacement suggestions

    I am going on what I found. GM makes an aftermarket filler neck to solve fuel spray problems. I have had many Gbody cars and never had this issue. So at this point, replacement is probably my only fix. Just hoping to find someone here who had replaced their tank with no fuel spray problems. I...

    Fuel Tank replacement suggestions

    I purchased a fuel tank for my 1980 Monte Carlo from Quanta back in 2010. I installed the tank just last year after the car turned into a major restoration. Since then, every time I fuel up at the gas station I get large amounts of fuel spraying back out of the fuel neck. The fuel pump nozzle...

    A/C Accumulator options

    I just received the new accumulator. Very nice and like all the other accumulators out there, it's made in China. However, it looks like the OEM accumulator which has a nice smooth bullet look and the outlet pipe is welded on. Did a few measurements and it looks perfect. Now I just need to mock...

    A/C Accumulator options

    I placed my amazon order. Found a web site parts store that shows that AC Delco part number fits, along with the other styles I found.. I really liked the OEM look of the original, plus there is no "extra pipe" to attach. And the price of $25 on amazon is the best price out there! Thanks again...

    A/C Accumulator options

    Sorry, Malibu Wagon. I do appreciate the info. Just curious why that one looks like a direct fit, but is not listed for my application. I suppose you were in the same situation. I am curious if that accumulator came with O-rings and was vacuum sealed? Seems like a great deal or an OEM...

    A/C Accumulator options

    That looks great! Thanks for the info! It doesn't claim to fit my 1980 Monte Carlo, but sure looks like it. It fit your 79 Elcamino?

    A/C Accumulator options

    Finished my 383 stroker in my 1980 Monte. Getting ready to start plumbing the A/C system. Nothing like feeling cool in a cool ride. Anyway, I was ready to replace the accumulator but I am not too pleased with my option for a new accumulator. The ones at NAPA have a secondary pipe coming off the...

    Tire Size opinion for 80 Monte Carlo

    I would love to go with the 275/60, but it might be a safer bet to go with the 255/60. Don't need to spend $350 on a set of tires to have rubbing issues. The extra 3/4 of an inch does not seem like a lot, but the tires I have now just give that too low of a profile tire. I was hoping to see some...

    Tire Size opinion for 80 Monte Carlo

    I was leaning towards the 255/60R15. Taller tire with no clearance issues. I would like to go with the 275/60R15, but heard of clearance issues. I guess at this point, I am going with the majority vote on which tire to go with.

    Tire Size opinion for 80 Monte Carlo

    Sorry, forgot important information. Rims are 15 x 8 with 3.5 backspacing.
