  1. I'm stumped...Starter problems

    Transmission & Driveline
    I'm posting here because it all started with pulling the transmission and putting in a new replacement. 69 Camaro, LS3 crate motor, 4L60E transmission, circle D torque converter. The 1st transmission leaked fluid out of the front seal; It had all kinds of weird shifting issues too random to...
  2. 1996 Camaro LT1 Swap wiring issues

    Fourth Generation
    Hello! About a month ago I started swapping a LT1 out of a 1995 camaro into a V6 1996 camaro body. Yesterday I finished swapping every harness into the new body due to some changes that happened in 1996 with the inclusion of a BCM module. So I swapped the whole body harness into the car with all...
  3. Heat Soaked Starter

    All, I am having heat soak issues with my SBC starter. Three starters in two years, added heat shield last year and still having issues. That said, is there anyone who has purchased a mini starter and owned for more than a couple year that would make a recommendation on a good mini hi torque...
  4. Low Voltage to Starter

    Electrical & Wiring
    Hi, Fellas. I haven't posted or visited here in years since I finished my car with the help of this site. I'm hoping for some help again!

    67 Camaro with a 350. I have little experience with older cars and wiring in general, but i've managed to get all the wiring in for my Camaro ( it is not new wiring ). I have power to the fuse block, and the accessories I have in do get power ( tail lights, blower motor ) when I have the key...
  6. Trouble with starter????

    Electrical & Wiring
    I have a 67 with a SB 350. I have a new battery that has been sitting on a trickle charger when the car is in the garage. The car acts like I am trying to start with an almost dead battery. As if there is not sufficient energy to turn over the motor. I do not know what to trouble shoot. I...
  7. Remote solenoid switch not activating?

    Electrical & Wiring
    Hi, I installed a solenoid switch to address my heat soak issues. I have everything wired up but when I turn the key the starter will not engage. I had a friend turn the key to start position while I put a test light to the solenoid. I have power from the battery to the switch, purple wire...

  10. Loud noise on start-up

    Troubleshooting
    If I have to apply the accelerator to get the engine started (like when it's been sitting over night, as compared to just a few minutes) the instant that the engine fires up and starts running on it's own, there's a rally loud, very short noise. It sounds something like a combination of a...
  11. 69 won't start

    Troubleshooting
    I've gone through a lot of threads, and based on what I've read I think I have a bad starter. Just wanted to get some feedback before I spend the money on a new one though. All lights, radio, etc work fine w/ key in ACC. I get a loud "CLICK" when I turn to start position. It's not cranking...
  12. starter mesh- pics. think it's good enough?

    Troubleshooting
    Here are pictures of how my mini starter gear is engaging the flexplate. I don't want to turn it over right now to test it... because I have to break in the motor still. So, I'm really hoping it's decent enough to get it started up without disappointments. Let me know your opinions...

    Electrical & Wiring
    Well, I'm finally almost ready to hear my new 383 run in my convertible for the first time. I just need to sort out some wiring issues. A few months ago, with the help from others on this forum (thanks again), I came up with the schematic below. So in theory, this should work out safely, but...
