SOURCE: 1992 w/opti spark dist. Had to replace it once

Sounds a bit odd that it is corroding inside but if it is, you may want to use the method I use to keep distributor internals dry when off roading.
Use kids modeling clay as a gasket around the distributor cap bottom perimeter where it contacts the housing. Before closing it up, give everything a light spray of silicone and let it dry. Any moisture will be dispelled by the silicone and it will inhibit corrosion clay will prevent anything from getting in there.

SOURCE: the mast is broken on my 1998 convertible

They make a mast kit for this, it requires the antenna be pulled out of the car to replace the broken mast.

Wont start when hot


If you recently had a waterpump replaced or leaking, i would say its the opti spark distributor. Main problem with the LT1 engines the water leaks all over distributor that sits behind pump causing the start no start up. When ever you change the waterpump always include the opti spark and wired connector.

If your Corvette has the LT1 engine then it likely has a problem with the Opti-Spark distributor. These are a notorious problem with the LT1. It is mounted on the water pump and when that water pump seal starts to leak it leaks into the distributor housing causing condensation. Search the web for the various kits that fix this issue. there are several web sites that discuss the Opti-Spark and how to upgrade.

1992 corvette no comunication between modules replaced ccm with rebuilt ecm checked out good replaced key and ignition but i cant get a vats signal so i can get the key chip. the starter does not ingadge...


I had a similar problem on my 92 LT1 and it turned out to be the opti-spark was bad not signaling the injectors to pulse, if your bypassing the VAT to turn it over then the injectors should fire as well, on the 92 the crank sensor is built into the opti-spark distributor as well, if it turns out to be the opti-spark spring for the MSD sealed and vacuum vented cap or you'll just be replacing the thing every six months, you can test the opti up were it runs into the coil, I dont remeber the exact proceedor but it is on line,

1992 w/opti spark dist. Had to replace it once already due to corrosion inside at 40k+ miles. Now at 67k+ and it's doing the same thing again! What's the answer to a fix that will last?

1992 Corvette won't start




Disconnect the + wire Coils Take #1 Spark Plug Out Get a helper Use Compression Guage if not Available, Just put your finger over the Spark Plug Hole, have help BUMP the Starter over till You can Feel The Compression at your finger you need #1 at TOP DEAD CENTER on its Compression STROKE Fine tune it by using a STRAW in the Plug Hole to feel the PISTON Move UP To VERY TOP Dead center----------------------------------This is Tricky but don't Loose these Instructions------- If you have the OPTI_SPARK Ignition System My Books show all about it but Nothing on the Timing "MARK" as this is the step I Stoped at Above.. Coil Pack Ignition Will Have a Timing MARK On the Lower Harmonic Balancer. Point Being if Mark is NOT on the Degree Indicator It has JUMPED TIMING<< Surly on a Coil Pack Ignition System BUT
-------- The Opti Spark system if there is NO Timing Mark to Go by I Would Suggest Breaking Down and Letting A DEALER Handle it Unless You Can RULE that it HAS JUMPED TIME------------------------------------------------------------------------I Truly Hope I've shed some Light on Your Delima and this Leads you to a Smooth running Chevy. PLEASE don't forget to Rate Me ------------------------------------P.S. The Opti - Spark System Has A BAD REPUTATION Just FYI Recall - Opti-Spark Distribtor, Stall/No Start, Code 16 Notes
