  1. I have been looking at the FITECH Tri power You can get them cheaper at jegs and summit. But according to Butler they need special offset studs to bolt to the stock Manifolds and I can't find any aftermarket manifolds for pontiac. Butler said theirs is going to cast about $ 5 grand. Another thing I was wondering about is I dont think It works like the progressive linkage on a regular tripower. If it doesn't then what is the advantage of it other then looks. that is a lot of money just for looks
  2. I think your right, I will check it some more when I get it all put back together. Still have a few things to do before I can run it. I will let you know what I find out.
  3. I think it is correct the way the factory intended, It's just that it doesn't make a lot of sense that it would use the whole radiator. I've been a pipefitter for 50 years and I know that liquid will choose the path of least resistance, that said with the inlet and outlet on the same side of the vesel it will go in and right back out unless there is a baffle or something to direct the flow to the other side of the radiator. It just seem odd, now if it was a cross flow it wouldn't make as much of a difference because the tubes would direct the flow, But this is not a cross flow radiator.
  4. Thank Frosty, that is what mine likes like(without the tri power). I am going to putt it back the way it was and see how it holds up to the heat. Thank everyone
  5. I priced them and I can get another one with the outlet on the left or a cross flow fairly cheap, But I don't really know if I have a problem until I run it next summer when it gets hot. Just wondering if anyone had noticed this before
  6. The Radiator was In the car when I bought it, It looks like the stock Radiator It is a three row. I have seen other cars in pictures and seen adds for radiators for this car with the inlet and outlet on the right side. but don't understand how it would cool very well unless there is a baffle or something to direct the flow to the left side of the radiator, thought maybe there might be someone out there that knew a lot about radiators that could answer My question. (KIWI Vegas Is hanging in there Still opening new casinos and other venues Like the Raiders Arena, It is tough especially when
  7. I am just finishing up putting the Vintage Air on My 65 GTO. Put aluminum Pulleys and Cleaning up the engine bay. Was noticing that My Radiator Inlet and Outlet are both on the right side of the Radiator, Being that it is not a cross flow but flows bottom to top, Am I going to have heating problems, What keeps the water from just going in the bottom and backout the top without going through the rest of the radiator. It gets hot in Vedas so I really don't want heating problems. Any Information would be appreciated, Thank You
  8. Up date got the airbox out. Had to remove all of the bolts holding the rear of the front fender on and almost remove the fender, then pry the inner fender well out, it is not as easy as they make it sound in the video I watched
  9. Has anyone else put vintage air in their 1965 GTO, I am having a lot of trouble getting the airbox out of the engine compartment. The instructions said that you might have to remove the inner fender well. I don't see anyway to get the inner fender well off without removing the fender itself. Have got all the bolts out but there's not enough room to get the heater fan out without removing the fender well, Just wondering if anyone had done this before and had any help Thanks
  10. Anyone else think the floor shifter in the early GTO is mickey mouse and toy looking. I decided to change mine, since no one makes a replacement for it I made My own, I just happened to Have a B&M Megashifter from a 1978 Camaro that a built back in the 90's, I made it fit, but had to cut up the console, If some one else wanted to do this I would suggest using the B&M universal Mega shifter, as it has the base plate and shifter handle that I used.archive (5).zip
  11. Thanks I will contact Butler, again Thanks
