  3. I’ll apologize up front if I offend anyone! Oh what the hell no I don’t! This is in a nutshell the emasculation of American! It started quite a while ago, but really gained ground under the Obama administration, sorry just a fact! Want more proof, see what the Democratic’s did in congress two weeks ago? Now in congress sessions you can’t be a father or brother or father-in-law, etc... And the list goes on and on! This is to strip every single one of us of our masculinity or femininity, our civil rights under the constitution, which you can pretty much wipe your you know what with now! We

  6. 64Kiwi, Just A6 and Frosty have requested details on my engine trans upgrade so here goes. I find myself with some spare time hopefully enough to get through the engine mods. The problems I encountered with the L83 are 1. no steering pump. 2. DOD. 3. vacuum source, 4. oil pan and lower hose outlet. Steering pump. What aftermarket pump kits I found all mounted the pump on top which would not have worked on my install so the steering pump replaced the vacuum pump. I did do a cam change with a DOD delete, that required removing the heads so with the engine on the stand heads off waiting fo

  12. Latest Breaking News: Frosty prised himself out of his nice warm loungeroom and trekked through the ice & snow to retrieve the Golden Tacho. I have a mental image of Indiana Jones battling Nazis, spiders, snakes and hot chicks, of course with Frosty just chuck some snow into your own mental image...come on, forget the hot chicks for now - CONCENTRATE PEOPLE! The negotiations have commenced behind closed doors and an agreement has been reached. The Chosen Item may leave the US within days. Don't worry Pontiac fanatics - you're not losing a tacho, you're simply relocating it to the oth

  18. Kiwi, It is reasonable to presume that the tranny pan should be parallel to the frame rails, but what is actually more relevant is that the mounting face of the carburetor on the intake manifold be level! This needs to be level! This can only be done accurately when the car is on the ground and the suspension is complete and loaded! I.E. car is basically completed, interior is in, all body panels on, gas tank full or at least approximated with weight, etc.. This is actually a fairly critical measurement as it then will give you the angle of the driveshaft to the differential! Which in turn is

  19. Yeah GM used the choke thing to help speed up engine heat up! Never liked it, never made any real cense! If it fails on the closed position that’s bad, but most of the time they just rust open! Then in time the cross shaft rusts through the shaft tends to fall out and the butterfly plate drops into the exhaust! If you’re lucky it sits parallel in the exhaust pipe, if not, it turns vertical and blocks off the whole exhaust. Long story short, get rid of it! Just drill & tap out the hole on both sides to the next closest size pipe thread and tap it! Get some Stainless Steel pipe plugs and sea

  23. Nothing great or exciting has been going on with the Lemans. New adjustable upper control arms from UMI set the pinion angle etc..But i am happy to report i finally found some rims on Facebook! 15x8 4 1/2 inch backspace Pontiac rims! The seller bought them 5 yrs ago and never mounted them. Got a great deal. Had my local shop mount the 275 60 15 Mickey Thompson's i found last year and here they are on the car. Really fills up the wheel well. Maybe an inch taller but the tires i took off are bald..(no idea how that happens) so maybe that's the diff.

  24. Yep-that picture just about sums up my reaction after finding said posts. I was supposed to be picking up passengers who were slowly roasting to death in the heat & humidity, but instead I sat alone in my airconditioned coach and frantically replied! It's okay, I picked up the sweating pissed off passengers eventually-nobody died.

  26. Well this maybe your lucky day Fitzy. I happen to own just such a tach. I found it and paid a proverbial song for it 16 years ago at the GM Nationals in Carlisle PA. I paid $100 for it then because the chrome was in spectacular condition. I've been using it as a knee-knocker tach on Lucy ever since. This summer I purchased an in-dash factory correct reproduction tach for Lucy. I may also get a hood tach for her as well in the future (since - thanks to Indyman Joe - I have a spare hood with a hood tach hole in it). So I no longer need this knee knocker tach. It was eventually going to mak

  27. One more - today was 'dashboard reassembly day,' so as you can see I polished up all the bits & pieces and bolted it all back together. However, as I was gently hammering home the slotted bezels that locate the radio control shafts, the little fluoro orange needle that tells you what frequency you're on fell out! Now, that radio was full of ratshit, dust & rust when I pulled it out, so it was pointless to think it was ever going to work, but I wanted to keep it in the car, so I discarded the vast majority of it and what is left is simply the face - just to keep up stock appearance in t

  37. Yo Kiwi, I don't think the dinosaurs ever died out - they joined Forever Pontiac! Plenty of dinosaurs around this site! I include myself amongst that tribe and am quite content with a small brain and eating the modern version of a tree (celery stick.) Cyclone has petered out into a rain depression and that, mixed with the seasonal monsoon means plenty of rain. This was the fortnight off work where I had planned to build a fence, erect a carport and build a shed. I am currently having a coffee and contemplating getting wet out there in the mud. I wonder what's on telly?

  38. I read somewhere that the factory console mounted tach was positioned so that the rear seat passengers could read the revs. I think I shall point it my way too, that way when the engine explodes at 9 grand, there'll be only me to blame. Yes, yes, remain calm. I promise to post endless pics of the Frosty Memorial Tach once it's safely mounted in the car - he's gotta send it first! More snow trekking comin' up. If it makes him feel any better, we are being besieged by rain on the tail end of a cyclone which seems set to return once it powers up. Did the factory ever make floaties for Pontia

  41. Hi, Glad to be here. My Dad was a Pontiac guy, he had a '48 then a '53 that I barely remember. First car I drove at 16 (1969) was a 1959 4 dr Catalina, 389, 4bbl, color: Amethyst. It was awesome. 1970 he bought a 1963 Grand Prix, 389, 4bbl, 2:32 rear. It was Gold with a white interior like on the calendar and once rolling it took off! Pics to follow thanx

  43. LMAO NOT the smartest thing I've ever done. Have an industrial come along. Cut a 6X6 barn beam to cover 4, 2X4 trusses for each end of the body. Lifted the front of the body 4in and left it hangin by chain. I had mis- aligned the front 6X6 and was off center on the rear of the body leaving most of the weight on 2 trusses. YEP Snap....busted one of the trusses while pulling out the old frame. If this thing goes any more South, I not only take out my project GTO but my Sunbird sittin next to it as well. 16 x24 garage with one side of each car tucked up against the wall. Scrambled to

  48. The engine trans install. It was pretty obvious when I got the engine completely assembled that there was going to be a lot of cutting and welding on the crossmember. The steering pump and A/C compressor were hanging on the bottom which was fine for the truck but not so for the Pontiac. So I took everything off that I could so I has a clean slate to work with. Looking at the two transmissions it was obvious that more room would be needed in the trans hump so in addition to taking all the front end sheet metal off I removed the front seat and front carpet took a cutting wheel and made three cu
