  • 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!

So finally after 3.5 years of ownership I am finally going to disassemble, clean, inspect, and reassemble the matching numbers motor to my 1970 GTO. I am curious as to its story and its a chance to give my youngest son a bit of engine 101 of his own. I've so far got it down to the short block but still no rotation of the crank so far. I think the pistons are rusted in the cylinders and just need time to soak. Haven't seen any glaring damage except a well bent push rod.

So went on a marathon reassembly of the motor on Saturday morning with a good oil down of everything and got the motor back together and painted in 5 hours. I feel like I've been run over by a Mack truck, lol. All I found was a bent push rod and a broken ring land on a piston skirt. Cylinder #2 had enough pitting in it from rust to keep the rotating assembly from turning over.






and now back to the rear gears and headers install.
