1985 corvette, less than 10,000 miles on complete rebuild with new injectors. Ran perfect when put into storage about 5 years ago. I have replace old gas with fresh gas and installed new battery, will...

You probably have a bad fuel pump. Get a fuel pressure gauge and check for fuel pressure at the shrader valve. Put the key to the on position. Your fuel pump should run for about 2 seconds. Your pressure should go up to 30-40 psi. If no pressure your pump is bad. Make sure you hear the relay come on, otherwise could be the relay. You should hear it click when you turn the key to the on position.

+ I have a 67 corvette with a 327-300hp engine. I had this engine rebuilt back stock except for a high flow oil pump and a higher lift cam. I want to adjust valves. My question is do I adjust valves like...

you would adjust as a normal stock engine, there is no gap spec for this, you will want to just snug rocker arms so they are not sloppy, turn motor over by hand and proceed to adjust each valve. run motor a few to prime lifters and then re-adjust valves as needed. Always soak lifters in oil for a day or two or prime by hand before install, as well as grease bottom of lifters before install on cam lobes

My 1985 corvette smokes out the exaust only when at idle and engine at running temperature.

most likely worn valve guides and probably dry cracked and fallen off valve stem seals you may get lucky with just replacing valve stem seals but may need guides installed in heads

My 1985 corvette hood will not pop open from the left side of the hood

I had this problem with my 85. The cables are adjustable to each side and your left needs tightened. With the hood open, look where it connects and you will see a plastic part on the end of the cable.Notice there is a place to put a wrench and this allows you to adjust. Very simple to turn which tightens ( or loosens ) the cable. The trick for you is to get the hood to open to make the adjustment. I played with the hood release under the dash until mine finally opened. It might require pulling on the cable itself under the dash with pliers. This adjustment is a great feature when the cables get a liitle older and longer.

Light tapping driver side valve cover in rear area 1973 chevy small block corvette engine. when engine rives up the tapping gets a little louder, the tapping is light, not a deep knocking sound.

The valves are out of adjustment or possibly a lifter is collapsed. A service manual or many sites online can provide you with information and a few different methods of adjusting the valves.

85 vette fuel injection fine after first cold start then runsroug

something wrong with mixture thats for sure,but only being a europeon mechanic without a lot of experiance on yank tanks iam not sure exactly what the problem could be ,but if one bank of injectors are not operating ??have you checked for a feed to the suspect bank ??(electrical)because in my eye if they operate when cold then stop when autochoke shuts off then its a fault with the ECU or a sensor on that bank??

1985 diesel after sitting overnight will not start

The check valve is a small brass fitting where the return line attaches to the filter head. I believe it takes a 7/16" wrench. There is a 'duck bill' inside that prevents fuel from leaking back to the tank causing air in the system. It should allow flow in only on direction. Some times you can see light through it if it's bad enough. Also, the lines between the injectors can dry out and start to leak air. Air will leak in before fuel leaks out, and you won't see it. There are plastic, cup-shaped connectors for these hoses that press onto the top of each injector. They are sealed by two o-rings on each injector body where it meets the connector. These o-rings can dry out and also leak air and fuel. Your Ford dealer or diesel service professional should have the proper o-rings. Any other o-rings might not seal, as they won't be the exact size. You already changed the fuel solenoid when you replaced the pump. It is inside. There has to be battery cranking voltage to it while cranking, and battery voltage with key in 'on' position. The wire attaches to the top of the pump. This is not likely to be the problem, since it restarts every 2 hours.
