When i push brake on 81 vette, the rear window defrost button lights up and the fuel gague pegs over full. when not pressed they function normally

sounds like you have a bad ground in the dash area or possibly the brake arm is contacting or rubbing a wire when you press on it. these wires problems are hard to find and take a lot of time. start by investigating the brake peddle area

Just bought an '81 Vette with a rebuilt 350 with 5K miles on it. What weight and type motor oil is reccomended?

I personaly would run amsoil 5w-30 or royal purple 5w-30. Those are a full synthetic and I can tell you from experience they are great. I run Royal Purple in my silverado and Amsoil in my cbr 600rr. Also, from independant studies done on Royal Purple and Amsoil they can go longer between oil changes then most oils. Royal Purple has been tested after driving 22,500 miles and still could be used if you wanted to leave it in the engine. I usually change mine around every 10,000 to 12,000 miles.

Wires came loose on 81 vette elect door locks when i took panel off need to know what order to put them back them nothing in chiltons? drivers side

I'm going to guess that's it's just a two wire hook up. There's only two ways to hook it up. Try it one way and if the door locks when you press lock on the switch it's on there right, otherwise just reverse the wires.

''Choke'' warning light on an '81 Corvette

have you checked to see if the choke is on? this light lets u know the choke has an open circuit, it is heated by stator wire from the alternator.

I have an 81 vette and the power lock lock the door but will not unlock?

Are you getting power to the solenoid when you press lock/unlock? If you are, because of the age I would suggest looking at the door latch asm.'s. They are known to rust up and cause malfunctions.
