I think im going to poke around at it and see if i can fix it myself, if that fails ill start looking into a new motor, which in that case ill get a 2f.

Did 74's come with the stock black wheels? it looks like there's gray under the flaking black.

Thanks again guys!! Im sure ill have alot more questions
If it truly is an old 'Vette motor you can prolly sell it to a purist for enough coin to replace it with a non-leaker!

BTW Uncle Ben is just what some silly kids call me.
