Robert Smith replied to Tyler Wright's discussion pontiac 350 in the group engines
"I had a nice low mile 1978 Trans Am complete with 400 Pontiac, shaker hood, and "thunder chicken" on the hood in 1984-86. I believe the 400 Pontiac motor was a better mill than the 403 Oldsmobile. There were advantages and otherwise to…"

"Hi, I had overlooked the 301 as did most people who bought Pontiacs! The Trans Ams with this turbo 301 were a failure. So avoid the 301 and go with one of the others. Robert "

"Hi 451Mopar, there should be two rods going to the carb. The top one comes from the gas pedal and the bottom one goes to the throttle valve lever on the trans by way of another two rods. So for the "kickdown linkage" there should be…"

Robert Smith replied to Tyler Wright's discussion pontiac 350 in the group engines
"Hi Tyler, I admit to overlooking those HO 350s but think they were only offered in Firebirds for those two years. The T37 was somewhat of a "hotter" Tempest model in that year though the 2 barrel motor is rated at only 250 hp net. In 1969…"

"The only OHV engines that I have had pushrods go through the rocker arms on were Pontiac V8s and this was at medium rpms, not wound out. I even had them go through the chrome valve covers on my '65 GTO. Modern OHC engines with timing belts can…"

Robert Smith commented on nathan's group CLUB CHEVY/GMC
"Hi to all, yes it costs a lot more to live anywhere now than it did in 1970. Apartments in the Bay Area at that time were $600/month and I could make a wh*** $100/week on a job. The minimum wage was $1.35/hour and that is what I earned on my first…"

"Hi Don, I am a San Francisco native and grew up in the Bay Area during the 50s and 60s. My parents and grandparents all were born/raised in SW Arkansas so I rode motorcycles, worked for Bill Graham, and milked cows as a teenager. When…"

"Wow Paul, that is way cool. I try to stay away from large bodies of water so I have never owned a boat. But I have worked on outboard and inboard motors, jet drives, etc. The Mercury outboard was one of the very best. People here in Arkansas could…"

"I was not trying to insult anyone. I don't take my vehicle to Goodyear, I fix it myself. We are all alike in that we try to fix things ourselves and if we don't know how we ask someone who might know. Thank you to all who commented on my…"

Robert Smith replied to Tyler Wright's discussion pontiac 350 in the group engines
"Hi Tyler, flat 12s in that car would require more than the 350 could do. Low 13s would be more reasonable and you would still have a nice car that could be driven anywhere. You will have to have a 4 barrel intake and 600 cfm Edelbrock carb. I…"

"I replied to a Chris who sent out a message to the members of this group asking for HELP about his pickup which goes into severe front end shimmy when it hits a bump. I have been a mechanic since 1963 and a ASE cert tech so only wanted to let him…"

"For Chris, you need to go to www.LMCtruck.com and request a copy of their catalog for your model truck. To look at your steering first, you have two outer tie rod ends, two inner tie rod ends, an idler arm, and a pitman arm. jack the truck up, then…"

I have the blue '49 Ford 2 dr that had the top (pass side) crushed when a tree limb fell in an ice storm in '07. It needs rebuilding. I have a '53 F100 that is currently apart getting re built. This '56 will probably become a rat sedan. It is a 6 cyl stick, and will get a 302/C4. NEW FLOORS R necessary. It is a two owner & hasn't been run since 1972.

Robert good answer to the polaraziton of the external voltage regulator. it is done the exact way with the early model Harley Davidsons. As you stated if you do not do it it will suck engery instead of creating it . I hope mary Jo Carrillo realizes that every time you disconnect the battery it must be done ?  Bruce Buckhalt
