Camaro issues

Hey all its another post from an '80 Z28 owner...
I recently put the car on the road, it stickered fine and drives awesome for the most part. However, there is a few small things that
grab my attention and I wonder if anyone knows the extent of work needed to correct them:
1st, the carbuerated 383 stroker motor will stall when I put her in gear if the motor has not been run for atleast 10 minutes. This is my first carbuerated car, so I'm not sure if this is normal-or if there is a problem. When the car has been warmed up it runs fine and wont stall at all, even if i accidentally start her off in 3rd...
Next, if I turn the wheels all the way to the left or right it makes a loud screech noise that almost sounds as if i went over a speed bump with a crappy suspension or something. This really sucks because it makes the car sound like a P.O.S. when pulling in/out of tight parking spots. I checked and the tires do not rub against anything, and they are the stock rims/tires. The power steering fluid is a little above full, but I'm not sure when the last time it was changed or anything like that. Is this a simple fix or do I need new front shocks/springs? If thats the case, does anyone know how much they would be for higher/ stiffer front shocks/springs?
Finally, my windshield wipers do not shoot any fluid to the windshield. They move as they are supposed to, but when I push the wash button nothing happens. It appears that all the hoses are connected, but maybe someone reconnected it improperly or something. Is there anyway to check what would be wrong here?

Has the carb been properly jetted and tuned ? Sounds like it is running lean and needs adjustment and you should check the jetting for the top end too.
Like Big Al said probably the bet squealing... Does it do it while you are sitting still and have it turned hard ? if so it's the belt.
The wipers sounds like you need to either install an electric washer pump or replace your wiper motor. The pump is built in on the wiper motor and is a normal problem with most Chevy's in those early years. You can try messing around with the pump itself sometimes you can fix them without replacing the motor. Does it make a clicking sound when you hit the washers ? There should be 2 wires that go into the front of the wiper motor they are for the squirters, you can check for voltage to them if you don't hear the clicking sound when you hit the washers. If you hear the clicking then you are getting power to them, you don't need to check for voltage.

For the turning problem you probably have a wider steering rang than your wheels have room for. If you oversteer like this when driving you could shread your tires. Easiest fix, don't turn your wheels so far. But you could always play with the steering box.

The 82+ series Camaros/FB's also have this problem, which can (and has, believe me!) lead to a cracking of the welds on the driver's front subframe (in my case), breaking the steering mechanism from the frame itself (a much cheaper, but still expensive fix), among other related issues.
After replacing the belt (Hey, $10 is still the cheapest fix of all things outside of a burnt fuse or lightbulb, really), don't turn the wheel hard when you get near to the locks. When it squeals, or you can hear/feel it straining when you've hit the locks (left or right) that is a sign that this could develop into a biger problem in the future.
NOTE: Dunno if this is also applicable to the older models, but anything from 82-92 DEFINITELY suffers from this particular "design affliction."
