Hey fella's! New to the page. but i've been thinking of doing an Auto to Manual swap in my 69 Laurentian. i know these cars came with either a 3-speed or 4-speed, could anyone help to identify these transmissions? and possibly track down a clutch pedal/linkage assembly.
Hello fellow Pontiac enthusiasts,
I am here to seek guidance and counsel. I recently had my front suspension break on me. More specifically, the lower shock mount broke free from the front passenger lower A-arm (I think it's the A-arm). Where the lower shock mount is supposed to bolt on, I no longer have those two holes. The metal broke right there, and I do not have one of those holes for the shock to mount to.
So here is my conundrum. I am thinking about upgrading my suspension, but I am not sure what to do first or where to begin looking. Currently, I am pretty sure I have the original setup--suspension, drum brakes, 14" PMD 5-star rims/tires. I would like to do any upgrading on somewhat of a budget, as my wife told me "You don't HAVE any money to do this!" But we will see....
I have read somewhere before that some people have swapped in a Corvette suspension/brake/hub setup. Is that even possible? If so, how easy is that? If not a Corvette setup, what would be a direct swap? I am looking for something that is relatively easy to do, as well as relatively easy on the bank account. (see above WIFE comment).
So that all are aware of what car I currently have.... I own a 1967 Pontiac Tempest Custom 4-door hardtop. It has a relatively new Pontiac 400ci V8, and a rebuilt TH350 transmission. The engine has been completely redone, as well. Bored out, all new internals, heads redone, it is NICE!!! The rest of the car, however, is mostly original. And of course, those are the parts I have to work on or fix up. Case in point, the suspension issue of which I am now typing about here on ForeverPontiac. I will soon be adding a few photos of my car. But for now, I simply ask for HELP!
I welcome information from any and all folks willing to dole out the advice. In advance, THANK YOU.
My Lemans has had this problem for some time now and i can't seem to figure out where it comes from. Anytime i go in reverse and turn the wheel counter clock wise to a certain degree i'll hear a grinding noise. The wheels don't seem to be rubbing and i'll take any advice i can get because i'm ready to try anything to get rid of this incessant noise. Thanks in advance!
Figured I spend a little bit of time this weekend trying to find things to fix on my Firebird.
Firstly, how can I fix my driver seat so the backrest locks in a forward position? I can only recline the backrest and it will lock, but if I try to put the backrest in a more upright position it won't lock. The passenger seat works fine but the driver side one wont. The seat portion also feels a bit wobbly at times.
Secondly, I have power mirrors with the little adjusting pad on the console between the two power window switches, both mirrors don't work electrically, how can I fix that?
Lastly, the driver side rear speaker cover is kind of warped a bit, do I need to replace that?
Thanks and I look forward to a little Saturday/Sunday work on my Firebird!
