Needing instructions on how to make adjustments to the convertible top frame. Replaced pump & motor unit, both cylinders and bushing. The drivers side is perfect and windows fit properly, however the passengers side has a "dip" (please is pictures) in the frame keeping the windows from not fitting properly. Need to get passengers side frame adjusted and get "dip" leveled out. Thanks for reading and any information.
A 389 block and a 400 block are external the same. However, I think your issue is with the engine mount holes (that are drilled and tapped). They do not line up, correct?
Blocks made between 1970 and 1976 had five holes so that blocks could be used in both the new and old models. 1977 to 1981 only had the three holes. So you may have to drill and tap the proper bolt holes if they are not drilled and tapped already.
1959-1969 Blocks have only (2) motor mount holes on each side of the block (see #2 & #5). These blocks will fit any 1964-1974 Pontiac A-body except cars originally equipped with a 455, which used a 3-bolt style mount. Later cars with 3-bolt motor mounts can be adapted to fit this block using a Butler Performance WRP-MM6 or Ames Performance N24CCA adapter kit. The adapters are available but not a perfect fit so expect some swearing / adjusting when installing.
