This applies for small block engines. Place vehicle on ramps. Use concrete block/anything sturdy and bottle jack. Place directly under oil pan. Use small 2X4 between oil pan and bottle jack (most mechanics would't do it this way because it can cause the oil pan to leak, I'm assuming you're the shade tree type) to spread the load across the pan as evenly as possible. Slowly lift engine. If mounts are broken, engine should rise untill it the transmission bottoms out. If mounts were old, this method will probably break them. Go slowly and check clearances on exhaust, etc while lifting. If they're good, the entire car will try to lift. Once the engine is lifted, you can get to the mounts. It is a pain to get to all the bolts. Be sure and have extensions and universals for your sockets. Difficulty about a 7 on 1-10 scale.

I just bought a 1972 corvette and the steering wheel is not centered. The car doesn't pull, apparently the steering column was replace a few years ago and the tech did not center the steering Wheel. How...

No, remove steering wheel, you will need a steering wheel puller, most auto parts rent this tool, center wheel where you want it, and reinstall it.

Windshield wipers not working on 71 Corvette

Check for power at the wiper motor. The door is vacuum operated the wiper motor is electric. If there is power present the motor is bad, if not check the fuse, and then check the wiper switch. My guess is that the wiper motor is bad.

1972 chevelle starter trouble

Since you have replaced the starter motor with a higher torque one then the next approach that I would take would be to inspect the flywheel teeth. It sounds like maybe these teeth could be damaged or even missing. If this is the case it requires you to get a new flywheel.

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
