Slight vibration

Hi I got a 74 Camaro with a 355 and a 350 turbo tranny, i got a slight vibration at about 2000 rpm stopped or not, my exhaust is pretty much mounted solid due to the fact is lowered and I had to mount the exhaust pretty much solid, think that could be it?

I don't have an answer for you but I too have a vibe at 2000 that I'm not sure of so I'm interested in hearing any replies about this.

You might want to re-check the harmonic balancer it might be loose.JMO
And are all the pulleys lined up properly also? and while you are at it check the converter bolts too. I had one do this and it had a busted bell-housing. All these things i have listed can cause this problem and i am sure someone else knows a few more things, JMO Is it a actual (VIBRATION) ?

Why would a broken belhousing cause a vibration, also why would misaligned pullys cause this? I forgot to mention that i feel it mostley when i let off the throttle, im really think its just the exhaust, the hangers just have a cheezy little rubber washer thats pretty much flat now cause i have them tight to the floor boards, i might install a set of flex pipes after the headers to isolate the engine

I meant warped pulley sorry about that, But i guarantee a busted bell will cause a vibration sitting still or driving. But anyway sounds like you already had it figured out i your original post. And yes it could possibly be the exhaust.
Really hard to tell without being there to feel the vibration. I was just throwing out a few things that can cause a slight vibration thats all.
