Question about Cars & Trucks

I'm looking for a new outside chain cover (part #2118-58), or at least the brass bushing for it (part #1657-65, I think) for my 1972 Yard-Man snowthrower, Model 7100-2.

Go to the hardware store and get a brass nipple and drill and grind it to fit then soak in oil or drill a hole for a grease zert

Hello there
you should look under the cover behind the seat on the floor.There are 4 phillips screws remove the cover and there is a shifter coupler.Look if it has a play (the plastic is worn out) or the little 3mm allen screw bolt is loose.If ok look at the shifter tower bushing.

My drivers door seems to be sagging from the front pivot point of the hinge which is causing the door to not open well. It has gotten so bad that I have to physically lift the door to open. It no longer...

Sound like what you need, is door hing pins, they go on the hinges, remove hing pine and brass bushing, install new ones, you will need a jack or some thing to hold the door up while you replace the bushing's and pin's.

Timing chain broke on 92 lumina euro and knocked hole in the cover how do i get a cover if the engine has been discontinued

Try checking with scrap yards first. They also have crossover books that can tell what other motors use the same cover. If you know someone who works at a scrap yard they may be willing to look it up and tell you. You could also try kijiji. I have had fair luck cleaning up the old cover, gently tapping the pieces back in place and using JB Weld on the outside. Use brake cleaner or something like it to remove all trace of oil before you try this. It may still leak but it usually is only a few drops. Hope this will help.

Well I just looked up the specs for you for the 2.7 ltr. I hope this is what you want.
Cam Caps 105 in.lbs.
Cam Sprocket 250 in.lbs.
Crank Dampener 125 ft.lbs.
Cylinder Head Cover 105 in.lbs.
Here is an illustration of the timing chain set up. Be aware these marks are lined up with the three sets of plated links on the chain. You should easily identify them if you have a new chain. You may have to clean an old chain to see them.
Good luck with this and let me know how it goes for you.

What maintenance problems were / are the 1972 Corvette known for?

Not sure about the wiper issue but I'd ask him to see what he know or suspects is the problem. Body mount cushons can be found at most Corvette parts places (Mid America Corvette, Ecklers, ect...) I think there are 8 total..but that is a guess

Timing chain cover cracked

I never heard of a cover cracking, unless the timing chain or belt snapped. And I've worked on cars for 40 years. 10 to 1 it happened at the shop,but it can't be proved.
