The knob replacement is pretty easy. The big question is which knob you are going to go with... some have plastic inserts, others brass, etc. to match the threads/size of the stock shifter. There's a TECH section on the "other" forum (Corvette Forum) that has pictures. (recommended) Essentially you pry off the plastic insert on top of the shifter with a flat blade screwdriver. Then you will see a nice, shiney square retainer (thanks Chevy! A locknut would have been easier!). You will need something like vice grips to allow you to lock on to the retainer. Then use a larger screwdriver as a lever under the vise grip handles and a block of wood or something flat and solid on the back side of the shifter knob top. It's very hard to get it out! (it comes straight up) If you can't budge it, try some lube like WD40, etc. I just hung on to all the tools with one hand (so they wouldn't get launced when it popped loose) and put the arm to it. Once that retainer was out, the knob unscrews. The replacements vary for the install, and normally come with instructions....

Looking at a set of new lug nuts, but the seller asked me what the "thread pitch" is (i.e, 1.25" or 1.5"). I have no idea what this is. Do any of you know what the thread pitch is for our lug nuts?
While at the track (first outing in 2019), my brake pedal began to go deeper in the stroke and approached the firewall. I’ve done the obligatory flush (5 liters of DOT4 using GM Tech2) which allowed me to complete one day of a two day autocross. I have replaced master cylinder TWICE with no...
