  1. Are you sure it is a bearing..?? And not a bent or flat spotted wheel or something along those lines..Is there any unusual grinding or roaring noise when driving straight or rounding curves ETC....??

    64 Bonneville cuts out in reverse

    If you're having a hard time locating the wiper motor assembly....Or would like to keep the original...It is a serviceable unit and can be repaired...took photos with my phone hope you can see them OK...Hopefully this helps....
  4. Wrongway Could you tell if the idler pulley is turning..?? Or am I just old and blind..???
  5. Looks like the tensioner pulley is the one making the noise..I Couldn't really tell but at about 46 seconds there was a brief shot of one of other pulleys not turning...??? Lower right hand side...or am I just crazy .....Won't let me replay without starting completely over.....looked at again Is the pulley on the far right turning...Grooved idler pulley maybe...????? Can't really tell...

    64 Bonneville cuts out in reverse

    Am assuming the car is equipped with the Super Hydra-Matic transmission..?? Also is the car column shift or floor shift...?? On column shift cars the neutralizer switch is non adjustable.... But it is adjustable on floor shift cars..If has floor shift it's very possible that it has slipped out of ajustment... If the car is equipped with the Roto Hydramatic (AKA Slim jim) the procedure is the same...

    Fuse panel location

    Agree with Wrongway and Frosty... under dash left side...Might also have to remove a small plastic panel at the very bottom of the dashboard (should be marked fuse panel access)... Will more than likely have plastic fasteners with a slot that is large enough to use a penny or a dime in lieu of a screwdriver to remove them... Under the steering column or just to the left of it... To be able to see and access it....Will probably have to crawl under there on your back to be able to get your head in there far enough to be able to see...

    Edlebrock intake

    Edlebrock torquer R- 2 intake manifold...(found pic on line) Apparently they were available for Mopar...Ford and Chevy...but not Pontiac..?? Think they Were mostly used in (circle track) hardcore racing applications...??? Thank you for your help..Was just curious... Will still be on the lookout though....

    Edlebrock intake

    Was out with one of my friends riding our motorcycles.....stopped at one of his buddies place...Had an old NASCAR modified... Methanol burning big block Chevy race engine that was built in the late 60s early 70s..(the cool factor was off the chart)..anyway the carburetor sat at about a 45 degree angle on top of the intake manifold rather than straight...Was also running a magneto instead of a regular dual point distributor like in alot of race applications.... Was kinda paranoid about snapping photos of someone's stuff...Who I really don't know...People can get kinda upset about that here in this part of the country.... But will definitely see what I can do about getting a photo....
  10. Ran across an old Edlebrock torquer R-2 intake manifold yesterday (carb sits at angle)...This particular one was for a big block chevy... Was just curious if they made those for a Pontiac application...??

    Would also highly recommend..(If the Budget allows)..That you do a line bore...Then square the decks up to insure that the rotating assembly is running square and perpendicular to the centerline of the crankshaft and not working against each other...Also do a real good balance on the crankshaft....Even in a stock type rebuild squaring and balancing everything up..Will free up a couple of extra ponies and make for sewing machine smooth operation and longevity....If done properly...Also stay away from chrome piston rings (Can take forever to seat among other things)...As for the cam..going with a hydraulic roller is also an excellent upgrade....Don't forget good Quality freeze plugs....

    Sway bar endlinks

    That's an excellent observation....Good eye....
  13. TWO LANE BLACK TOP

    Sway bar endlinks

    Is it possible that the mounts on the frame are not the correct ones or maybe the rubber in them worn and collapsed....?? Then again may have had spacers in them from the factory...But Honestly I can't say for sure.... .Don't really want to give any bad info.....

    Sway bar endlinks

    If the car is on a lift with the wheels hanging with no weight on the suspension that gap between the sway bar and the end links is normal..When the car is on the ground with all the weight on the suspension there should be no gap at all....The only reason that I can think of for the shorter end links would be an attempt to change the tension on the sway bar for handling purposes...(good or bad)....

    Sway bar endlinks

    Wasn't trying to repeat the same question....Guess we were both asking at the same time....LOL.... Do agree with the spring spacer observation....
