I bought a gear driven stand from Jegs…..or Summitt. I could never seem to get the balance right and wound up working myself to death just rotating the damn thing. Good choice. I'd like to throw the crank away on mine and use a flexplate/ring gear and a very slow starter or something. Lifelong electrician. I can figure something out.This special stand will allow the heavy 496 to rotate 360 degrees easily.
Speaking of 496, How's your 76 doing these days?Good to see you follow through with the 496. One of the things that I have not encountered yet with mine is hood clearance. I have measured and it will be real close but until the body is back on, there is no way to know if there is enough clearance. With that sheet metal intake from Raylar it's going to give you a challenge. The way I look at things there is nothing I can't over come given enough time. I have been working on several projects and hope to get back on the Vette this fall. Ill be following your build very interesting approach using the C6 parts.
I haven't touched it in 2 years, took a long break:huh: i have however restored a pontoon boat and completed it last week so it's not like I have been sitting around. I am however about out of projects and am getting the itch to start back on the vette.Speaking of 496, How's your 76 doing these days?
I will keep an eye out for updates on your thread. :thumbsup: That is such an awesome project you have.I haven't touched it in 2 years, took a long break:huh: i have however restored a pontoon boat and completed it last week so it's not like I have been sitting around.

At the local Moultrie Automotive Swap Meet twice a year, there is a guy that has complete rolling c6 suspensions for sale. It always looks inviting to me to put a c3 body on that suspension. But he also has custom frames there built to combine both. Really nice quality too.
slofut- It would be interesting to see a complete C6 rolling chassis. Wish I had the bucks to invest in a system like that. Sure would save a lot of time on a build. Perhaps I can get to the event sometime soon.
