As ageneral rule of thumb the seals leak on the compressor every 2 - 3 years. Seem to have better sucess with aftermarket compressors. Very hard to get away from. Also the condensor will generally rot out from rust afte about 8 years. It is the nature of the beast on these models. You can look at the padding under the hood and see if the compressor has been leaking. It will leave a path on the insulation and eat through the insulation.
it should as 76 corvettes had no horsepower whatsoever.

Yes, the headlights should be completely identical.
On the 1998 Corvette, the odometer is digital. It should show up digitally right under the speedometer.
You should use 327ci 300hp 1966 Corvette engine oil ;)
it should be on the instructions or when you get the car they should tell you
about 220 HP, it should be higher but the clean air act of 1970 limited to power of the 1970s C3 corvettes. Personally get a better engine, L82s' are fairly weak when compared other V-8 engines however don't expect a mustang to win in a race against one.
REMOVE THE UPPER PANEL UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL, SHOULD BE TO THE LEFT OF STEERING WHEEL. BOTH FLASHERS SHOULD BE THERE HELD DOWN WITH CLIPS , TURN & HAZARD or On my 1986 Corvette the flasher was installed under the passenger side panel just above where the passengers left knee would contact the dash. I know the diagrams don't indicate this but at least some 1986 Corvettes have the turn flashers there ( but not the emergency flasher relay which remained behind the information center , mid-dash)
The rear portion may have to be modified (underneath the rear window), but it should work otherwise.

To let the top down on a 2001 Corvette you will need to go where the windshield meets and then, and then you would want to pull down all of the latches. This should let your 2001 Corvette top down.

Yes, the mounting position is the same, but the actual mounts are different. Bolt the mounts from your 1975 corvette to your 1996 LT1 engine and it should go right in. The transmission should also bolt right up to your 1996 LT1 engine.
