  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

1st you need to get rid of the 8 bolt water pump by changing the timing cover to the newer style. Then you will start to cure your problem. Check your timing, to advanced will cause it to overheat. You need to let us see your engine & what you have for fan, rad. as that will make a difference .  You say it's stroked,, to what ??? Are you using water or anti-freeze & water. What temp T-stat do you have in the engine? We need a lot more info to help you.
