Re: Rear Suspension

That 8.2 posi out of the t37 I have wouldn’t work with a 3.08 gear. It only fits 2.56-2.78.

Re: Fall Cleaning out of old Pontiac parts

What was the goals back when you bought the single plane and the aftermarket style valve covers. Was that in the name of speed of a look you were after?

What is the quality of the aftermarket T/A hoods these days versus fixing an oem?

Re: Rear Suspension

I have a couple 3.08s for 8.5s. Your better off with a 8.5” if you could find one. The 2 pin 8.2” posi units a...

1968 Oldsmobile commercials. One of them didn’t show a picture of a car. It was still pretty convincing. :lol:

Re: First engine start

It is always best to run the engine continuously for the 20 or 30 minutes on the cam break in. Take your time and try to prepare the engine to brake in without interruptions. We usually change the oil as soon as the cam is broke in and stay between 1500-3000 rpm for 20-30 minutes. Set the timing whi...

Re: My sons non Pontiac project

Awesome to see a kid take some interest in something like that.

Did you get him a centrifugal clutch? Or are you letting him figure it out?

Re: overheating

The 69 and later 4.5” pump would be a good place to start. Then swap to the smaller pump pulley too. I doubt the smaller water pump pulley by itself would help.

Re: overheating

What size pulley’s are on the front of the engine? Pontiacs that had A/C turned the water pump faster with a smaller pulley on the water pump.

Re: Budget Pontiac Engines comparisons: Mild to Wild

First trial fitting for the Pontiac main girdle. I have some little clearance issues to address and holes for the center supports are all suppose to be 7/16”, one side ended up to be 3/8”. Overall I am tickled with how it fits! :D
