1968-1982 Corvette heater cores typically begin leaking due to a breakdown in materials dropping anti-freeze and coolant on your Corvette's carpet. This is not a pretty sight. Removal of the heater core takes place from inside your Corvette. First the RH side lower dash pad must be removed, then access can be gained to the inner heater box. Remove all ductwork (windshield defrost, floor duct, side ducts, etc.). The main inner heater box is supported to the firewall by 4 to 6 studs, these stud plates are riveted to the inner heater box. By removing the nut on the opposite side of the firewall the inner box can be removed from the Corvette. The heater core is mounted with straps inside the inner heater box. Once the inner box is removed from the Corvette, the heater core can be replaced and reassembly can begin. At this time it is also a good idea to replace all the seals in your Corvette's heater & air condition system. Seal kits for 68-77 & 78-82 Corvettes include ductwork seals, inner box seals, heater/ac flapper door seals and firewall mount seals for internal and external heater boxes. Replacing these seals not only improves your Corvette's heater & AC performance, but also eliminates air drafts which are common on all C3 Corvettes.

I own a 1977 corvette and I have adjusted the rubber stops in the back on the seat bottom as well as the metal stops on the seat back where these two meet. These just screw in or out. It is limited but it work for me. I'm not sure if the 1976 is the same but I'd bet it is
my 1976 corvette is supped up and she will run a solid 165 it will probably do more but i dident want to push it cause the nose was coming off the ground
The hood for a 1976 Corvette is not the same dimensions as a 1980 despite their similarities. Modifications can be made to the hood to make it work but it will not look factory.
NO. Do not attempt to do so, as the bumper will be extremely unstable.
I have a 1979 corvette and had the same problem. what I did was change the starter and the battery. it starts better than my new car.
