  1. Nice shots, I see that several are from the 2016 PYPES show, Can't miss Chris' 1931. He is a fellow OHC 6 member;
  2. Nice! I would love to see details/images during your install, so I can add them to my file on this option. Below is the sw cutout / templates spec sheet page from the service manual, It may be of use? Just for the heck of it, here is a pic from an article of the switch in what is said to be 1 of only 2 known 1970 GTO Judges to have documented PFV's. A very rare/interesting little known option for sure. Best of luck with your install!
  3. That is indeed a very rare option. I've never seen a complete set-up. Does your '69 have this option? For the most part motor goes in via the interior cowl panels per service manual. But to me it looks like there's a lot more involved. Not sure if you have these sheets and/or if they will help; 1st page is from the parts book. 2nd page from the '69 service manual. Cheers.
  4. If you haven't already, reach out To Peter he is IMHO the go-to guy for gauge parts & service. http://precisionpontiac.net/Rally_Gauges.aspx
  5. Grey lead should/would be gauge lighting. Shown here from a page in the service manual;
  6. There have been a few articles written and most seam to state mainly due to Canada's Trade laws at the time. It wasn't just the engine it was a full Chevrolet chassis with Pontiac Bodies on the early cars. But I'm sure if you check over on the Canadian Pontiac site someone more knowing has and/or can shed more light. http://www.canadianponcho.activeboard.com/
  7. Correct remove 4 screws under the forward upper edge of Pad above the gauges. Then glove box removal will allow access to the 2 studs at the left and right side of the passenger side pad.
  8. The only part you will need to remove to install the PAD is the Glove Box Liner. You do not need to remove the gauge bezel. Cheers
  9. The Old Dominion chapter of AACA was in town so I Knew there would likely be machines I had never see before. Weather was iffy and humility was high but the turnout was fair. I was not disappointed with the cars on site. I'm so over the garbage on Photobucket I decided to give flicker another shot hope the link works. ENJOY! https:[email protected]/v6hTCC
  10. Our season has officially begun with the SPRING DUST OFF, April 1st 2017. Even with Friday nights torrential rains,hail and tornadoes the show must go on as they say, Saturday we had great 60 degree weather and a turnout of over 100 cars ( I was 116) This weather has been a true test and I,m happy to share just a few of my personal favorites from the show. ENJOY!... http://s412.photobucket.com/user/SPRINT-6/slideshow/2017 SPRING DUST OFF SEASON OPENER
  11. Patiently waited and finally the weather gods allowed me to get the interior back together, and to think this all started with a simple VTR A littel more detailing and ready to hit the road. The Season Opener is Sat the 1st and was beginning to think I would need some yellow caution tape.
  12. 1933 for sure but may have been an accessory used other years. Not a lot of info out there on them that we could find. May reach out to Tim Dye with the Pontiac Museum he may have more info on this. This three window coupe belongs to a local friend who has done several pre 40 Pontiac's, these images are the as bought (Before Resto) Looks to be an real bad 1970's attempt at a refresh, but she ran good.
  13. Have you reached out to Larry? he should be able to direct you to a source/solution; http://www.pontiacsafari.com/index.html
  14. WELCOME PHIL, Love your Yank Tank! As we say in the states GO BIG or GO HOME I have a friend who has a stunning '59 Bonny and I'm always amazed when he brings her out. Cheers
  15. Well the weather had fallen back to normal and delayed my progress. However I was finally able to wrap up the VTR install today. The following is installation information for those who may want to install this in their 1966 Tempest/Lemans/GTO; This is a Factory and/or Dealer option referred to in the 1966 Accessory brochure as REAR DECK LID RELEASE option code 244 with a suggested retail price of $12.35 from the factory and $12.55 from the dealer. This is the second design over the first release option that was a manual pull cable, similar to the 1965 version. This Vacuum actuated unit was used in 1966 only. The 1967 release was a new power controlled unit. The system contains a glove box mounted vacuum canister "CONTROL" with a 3/32 ID vacuum hose/line approximately 6-8" long then to the reducer and increases to a 3/16 ID hose/line that runs along the passenger side of the floor and then under the rear seat within the factory wire protector/cover utilized for all rear accessories. There was no clear hose retaining guide, so I used HD cloth tape. The line then runs within the underside channel along the deck lid gutter over through the rear light harness clips and behind the latched support/bracket to the "POWER UNIT". This makes option #35 for my '66 and one that has been a long time coming. It is a very basic system that has amazing vacuum considering it uses approximately 23' of hose. Sorry for the long post but I just love the Factory gadgets
