Corvette: Third Thing Fixed
The problem? Well, here's how Pat put it on the invoice: "pilot bushing fell out of crank". Easy enough to fix. While he was in there, he noted that the clutch looks like it still has plenty of life. I also had him convert the oil filter to a modern spin-on type, fix a pesky window vent handle, tweak the alignment, and get the car detailed. Total cost: $1,190.
The good news is that the shifter now feels better than ever. And the repair eliminated the shifter rattling that I previously had at high rpms (very common trait of the Muncie transmissions, apparently).
