    What is Going On Here?

    Yes he has his hands. I think vandalism is a real concern in downtown Pontiac, given that area. It's a cool landmark, but it was not a well thought out decision before it was obtained for the museum. This would be more suited for Pontiac Illinois than Pontiac Michigan - at the moment.
  2. It certainly was a different era in those days. I do appreciate these kind of stories. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  3. Indyman Joe has a '72 Luxury Lemans. He runs 255R60 x 15s in front and 275R60 x 15s in the rear. They really fill up those wheel wells without hitting anything. Joe is also famous for disturbing the peace and leaving fresh smoldering rubber turds in the street too. Joe's car is on the far right, and his idea of self-applying undercoating....

    Ram air manifold

    Pictures help in situations like this. That said, are your exhaust manifolds reproductions or factory originals? I would also expected an exhaust gasket.

    What is Going On Here?

    I spoke with JimLarson. Big Chief is currently stored in a warehouse in here in Michigan. The question is what to do with him. Place hime two blocks from the museum - on Woodward Avenue? Place him outside the museum? Both locations he could get vandalized. Or place him on the roof of the museum? That would make him tougher to see. He won't fit inside either.
  6. Initial timing has to be done with the vacuum advance unplugged (but the vacuum source plugged up). 16 degrees of initial timing with around 34-36 degrees of total timing (mechanical and vacuum advance all in) is close to factory spec. Now depending on your cam specs and such, 40 degrees may be okay or it may be too high and you risk denotation. With a near stock cam profile, 40 is pushing it in my opinion.
  7. Yes, you will have to change the fast idle screw to adjust the carb so that the revs come back down to normal. Remember, the carb was use to running on partial vacuum, now it is running on full vacuum.

    A Shooting Brake Dodge Demon ? Why Not?

    Most definitely. I’d be a skipper of one these boats!!!
  10. Okay - before we get too excited - this is a what if. A photoshop. Still it's pretty awesome if you think about it. This could be the wagon that could probably pull the trailer from out underneath the boat! http://www.thedrive.com/news/25441/this-fan-made-dodge-challenger-demon-shooting-brake-rendering-has-us-writing-letters-to-santa
  11. I have a Pertronix II on my '72 Lemans distributor. I love it - no more points and dwell to worry about. My engine builder had an old Sun distributor curve machine so he could add a lighter spring/weight kit (~$10 from Summit), and re-curve the distributor to bring all the mechanical timing in at a lower RPM. I find most people who are not (yet) die hard Pontiac aficionados find out the hard way that Pontiac distributors run counter clockwise. I think your car will like straight and constant vacuum now. Fine tuning a rebuilt carb can sometimes be a pain.
  12. Correct, you would get full vacuum all the time to the vacuum advance unit by removing the TCS. This would clearly pull your vacuum advance in soon than you are currently use to with the TCS in place.

    62 grand prix

    I admit that I am surprised that GM Parts had it. GM has discontinued a lot of big car stuff over the years and if the aftermarket doesn't pick it up, then we are kinda' screwed. Keep in touch and let us know how your project goes - both your ups an downs. We all like to learn. Helping you was our pleasure.

    1983 Pontiac 6000STE

    Welcome to FP Stan. Love to see any Pontiac 6000s, but the STEs were the by far the best.
  15. It means the advance won't get full vacuum to the advance until you are out of 1st and 2nd gear, or if the engine is below 63F or above 263F. The TCS was an early emissions device. You can completely remove it from the system if you want, assuming you are not going for judged points (100 point restoration) or your state does not require emissions testing/original emissions equipment to remain in place and functioning.
