    Aloha everyone, Now that I've fixed my electrical issues, I'm on day 4 of daily driving my 76 Nova. One of the cooling lines rubbed a hole in itself against the other one. At a stop light, I noticed smoke coming from under the hood. Long story short, the big 3 (O'Reilly's, Napa, & Autozone)...

    Just put in a newly rebuilt Th350 into my 70 Nova. Ran into a distr. issue on a whole other thread but I'm past that w/ car up on jacks and running through the gears. I'm short a couple quarts of ATF still but getting it to full as I test it. One issue, when I'm in park the car is still turning...

    I have a '70 that I put a 383 into, new flex plate and TC. Removed my old TH350, bought a freshly rebuilt one, and put it in this weekend. I now have a loud, consistent knocking coming from the upper section of the bellhousing that wasn't there before. Sounds loudest right where the engine meets...

    Hey guys! I have a 1970 nova with a th350 and a weiand 142 supercharger. It's got 355 hp/363 tq. I have a stock 10 bolt rear end and a th350 with a 2200 stall torque converter. 2 days ago my car started shaking when in drive. The shaking speeds up when I accelerate and is almost unnoticeable in...

    Wassup y’all (new to Novas, carbs, and the site itself, big thank you for letting me in) I’m having problems with my 77 Nova concours, long story short it has a Rochester Qjet 1bbl electric choke and just recently I replaced the fast idle screw since every time I hit the throttle it cuts off. I...

    hey guys so right now my 62 coup has a 250 and a powerglide in it and i am deciding weather I want to do a v8 swap or hop up my 250 and I know that if I go with the 250 I want to change out the powerglide for at least a three speed I know a th350 would be easiest. but I am thinking of going the...

    hi.. hope someone can help.. I have a TH350 spitting trans fluid out the filler neck after test drive. I have checked the tranny vent and it is clear. checked the tranny fluid and it's about a quart low.. so that wouldn't do it (I think).. checked the tranny temp and it reads about 170-180...

    73 Nova / 2-door /350 engine / TH350 Auto Trans / Trans cooler / long tube headers. What type of transmission coolant lines are you guys using? Hard, steel braided or rubber? I recently added a trans cooler because my radiator was full of brown bubbling rust, which I also replaced. The hard...

    Car stuck in first gear, wouldn't shift. After inspection I noticed the vacuum line that's supposed to connect to the vacuum modulator (spigot, nipple, whatever..) isn't connected. How do I get the hose to stay on? The vacuum modulator has a small rib (?) on the spigot, nipple, etc but the...
  10. LSx Forum
    Hi all, finally sick of my worn out leaky th350 and deciding to go for a T56 swap in my '70 Nova. Not sure if this should be in LSx... let me know. I am doing research on a T56 swap and trying to purchase parts this week. I know a guy who knows a guy with a wrecked '02 WS6 looking to sell the...

    I have a th350 that is acting up. Went to drive it the other day and only made it about 100 yards before I suddenly had Park and 5 neutrals - no noises or grinds or shudders just sort of faded/slipped away. No forward or reverse gears. Pushed it home. Has been a solid transmission for a few...

    Got me engine working, now onto transmission issues. Main problem - th350 not shifting engaging Before i started the engine for the first time I was able to shift from park to neutral to push the car around. I got the engine started and tired to shift but nothing happened. The transmission...

    Afternoon all. So I'll make this simple as I can but I'm not one with knowledge in the transmission department. Little pre history, it's been rebuilt 3 years ago by a friend's neighbor after the D, L1 and L2 went out. Now I have been using this car daily since even on drives to casino and Austin...

    1074 Nova Build: Currently building a 350 with a 4l60e trans hooked up by a TCI EZ TCU controller. Current set up is a a 350 with a Th350, I already know I am going to have to move the cross member but I am looking for info on how long the new drive shaft must be. Any thoughts would be cool.

    I was doing some research for my own benefit and thought I would share this. I figure if I was looking for the answer so are others. This is compliments of the TCI website [/URL][/IMG]

    Hello! I posted in here a while back about my engine woes. Got a beautifully rebuilt 1971 350 and it runs great! Only problem is, now my transmission won't shift our of first. From what I've read on this site and others, it seems like my governor is bad or my modulator/ cables are bad. I took it...

    I have a small block and a TH400 that I would like to install in my '73. My problem is that I can't figure out a transmission mount. The thing is, for those who don't know, '73s never came with TH400s. '68 to '72s had them, but only behind big blocks, and the big block engine and tranny mounts...

    I am looking for information on Park Neutral Safety Switches.... I have a 71 Nova that I am about finished on my LS1/4L60e swap. I am keeping the Column Shifter. So. it was a two Speed PG.. People say to switch the PN switch from a TH350 one to at least be close to the correct range / detent...

    I have a th350 in my '66 that slowly leaks out of the speedo cable at the transmission end. I know it can be fixed but I don't want the speedo anymore. I always have my GPS in the car which is far more accurate anyway. My question is, is there some kind of delete kit or fitting that I can put...
