Amazing (and Cheap!) Ball Joint Separator Tool – Video

Corvette Tech Tips, Corvette Videos
Wayne Scraba brings Vette Vues another great tip, and it is under $26.00 at the time of this post.  It is an “Amazing” Ball Joint Separator Tool. Wayne tells us, “I have no connection with the manufacturer (Howe Racing), but boy, does it work slick.” The tool basically presses the ball joints out from the inside of the spindle, not the outside. “That means there's zero damage to the boots, and you don't have to worry about using a pickle fork and hitting a delicate piece on the car (or your head) with the biggest honking sledgehammer in your toolbox.” Check out Lone Wolf Hot Rods video and watch the ball joints pop out! https://youtu.be/8CwcqJEqpfE Here are some other videos you might enjoy: If you are not getting Vette Vues…

The Calm Before The Storm – Beginnings Of A Sleeper Build

The Calm Before The Storm – Beginnings Of A Sleeper Build

Corvette Tech Tips, Corvette Videos
In this Vette Vues blog post, we are introducing Wayne Scraba's YouTube Videos called the Lone Wolf Hot Rods'. This is the beginning of a current street sleeper project car -- a 1970 Chevrolet Nova but many of the applications can be used on the Corvette. It's your typical "granny-mobile" with pretty much zero optional equipment. The biggest redeeming quality is the fact it has just over 13,000 original miles (yes, they are still out there!). In this video, the car has a snoring inline-six with a three on the tree. That will all change! The idea here is to build a nondescript Sleeper - one with ahem..."adequate power" under the hood! It will look close to the same as it does now, but under the skin, there will be…
