  1. 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

  3. Had to pick the body back up and slid the 4x4's between the frame and body. Did all the replacing/rebuilding of metal from there. Welding was a big part of my physical therapy beginning 3 weeks after surgery.

  5. bang on mate,,, that tells you there is resistance in each of those earth straps, pull em sand the surfaces and hell, even test the strap with your ohm test. basically you should be some were in the 0.1ohms ish area for a good low resistance earth strap. It will be oxidation, rust, shit, or all the above give em a good sand and clean and test again. i think two lane and bear are on to it. The ignition isn't getting a good earth back to the battery, remember your only playing with 12 volts its really easy for the current to drop off with a poor earth now, your tests ar

  10. I hear that buddy, still have those indents too. Before I built the garage and poured a cement pad in front of it. I have many LOL driveway moments, before and after. Going on 44 years I've owned this place. When did I have time to get this old??

  12. Once you install the driveshaft you should check the driveshaft angle to verify it’s in the proper range. If it ends up out of range you’ll have to determine what you might change if anything! But knowing where it’s at is always good to know! The steering arm is most likely ok! First of all it’s cast steel, which is more ductile! Cast iron is pretty unforgiving. Plus 5/8 of an inch movement in the arch that your steering arm has isn’t much! Last if you have a concern you could get the arm shot peened and than magnafluxed!
