    • From Wikipedia..... "All Pontiac V8s from 1955 to 1959 were reverse cooled, known as the "gusher" cooling system. It was removed from the design for the 1960 model year because designers moved the generator and the power steering pump from atop the front of the engine down to the front of the heads to accommodate a lower hoodline. However, the 1959 389 engines had the generator in front of the heads with reverse flow cooling still in use. This suggests that the cost of the reverse cooling was the reason for the change to "equa-flow" cooling." So essential a 1960 389 and up have "normal" cooling. All the 50's era Pontiac V8s are reverse cooling. I was not 100% certain of exactly when until I started looking but I generally knew that '50s Pontiacs were not interchangeable with '60s-and-up Pontiacs. Now I know more clearly why and when.

    • I am not aware of the 6L80 having an internal neutral switch. I used A Howell wiring loom for the installation and there was no neutral switch wiring just a starter wire sticking out.  As for a matrix board, the original shift pattern having park and neutral right next to each other the switch has an elongated contact to allow start in either park or neutral. Now it has changed so park and reverse are next to each other so it will start in either. There is no way to correct that externally and modifying the switch would be out of the question. But thanks for the thoughts.
