This factory manual reprint provides the information necessary to properly service the 1956-1957 Corvette engines and regular production options(RPO). It's a high-quality reproduction based on the original manual, which was written by Chevrolet for use by their dealership mechanics back when these beautiful, sports cars were brand new.
Perhaps the best explanation for this specialized guide comes from the beginning of this manual. It states, "Servicing the Corvette chassis has presented automotive servicemen with problems that are not encountered in working on other types of vehicles. The various chassis components, standard and optional, are in many cases completely new designs, and in other instances revisions of equipment used on other Chevrolet vehicles."
The manual is divided into two sections. The first section covers the operations regarding tuning the various 1956-1957 Corvette V8 engines (with both the single and dual four-barrel carburetor (Carter WCFB), or Fuel Injection set-ups). The second section is devoted to the RPOs available on the Corvette. Many options are serviced in a similar manner to those available on passenger cars, therefore, those service procedures are not covered in detail. Other options, such as the Four-Speed Transmission, the 7014800 Fuel Injection, and Positraction Rear Axle, are covered in their entirety.
You'll love the well-written text and the large number and variety of visual aids, such as black and white photographs, cutaway views, illustrations, exploded views and more. When you're ready to get to work tuning one on these beloved, classic sports cars, be sure this manual is at your finger tips. It's the guide to use for attaining optimal performance.
