Well Here are some Recent Pictures Of the progress of my rig
I have to find that stupid seal For the T case Adapter , Put the trans back in then Finish Up Figuring Out my Brakes , then check it all over , and it is done .
Hoping To have it on the trail here next Month
It doesn't let me look at the pictures.
What did the seats come out of?
join up and you can see them.
i pulled the seats out of a '94 Grand Am.
looking good. whats the lift and what tyres you running. the front of mine is cut just like yours. i got 39.5x15x18 boggers and and 6 ich lift. but it's a little more than i want. i'd like to come down to some 38's and bring the tyres in a little. they stick out so much right now and rub alot.
Nice looking rig. When I had my intake off a few weeks ago I used a product leftover from using on my brothers' 76 Porsche. It is a rust spray which turns rust black (wire brushed the tin first). I then sprayed the tin with flat black paint, and I cleaned up the hose with simple grean and a brush. It's amazing how much cleaner everything looks now.
6" Tc Easy Rides in the Front Cut Fender's
6 "Shackle Flip Rear and NOS Rear Springs
they're not NOS, they're stock 52s.
nos meaning as in new springs they aint old and crummy
Right on dude, lookin good, its gettin there. Keep up the good work!
Are you running a pre-TBI block with the serpentine system? If so, did you have any problems with the couple of missing mount points?
looks sweet bro
Yeah It is a 70's 350 Block
The Serp Setup I got Is newer It actually Came Of A 4.3L 1500
It Does miss a Few Points BUt It Is plenty Strong And Holds up for me Just Fine I actually have another serp setup but no pumps or anything
It uses an Air Pump Tho which i was trying to stay away from.
Mine Has no mount for Air tho
Thanks For the comments
Thanks for the info. Whenever the temps get above 10 degrees around here (no heat in garage) I will mock up my TBI serpentine to the small block 400 sitting in the garage and see what I need to install it. I am not going to use the AC so I'll need the idler pulley...but I digress.
I hope it works out as good as yours did.
Take those blue valve cover tighteners OFF. They can vibrate loose, fall off and generally cause one hell of an oil leak. Don't ask me how I know. Lets just say they cost me a 4 bolt 350, many years ago.
Yeah well i got the A/C Pump there but Have no A/c Just in free clutch used as a idler (on Board Air soon)
a bolt can rattle out too. most of us are more observant, and would quickly notice a valve cover leak. if a valve cover leak cost you an engine, you were very neglectful in noticing the leak.
i put 30,000 on my 355 i built when i was in HS, and it had 20,000 on it with the chrome valve covers and hold downs on it before the rebuild. i even used cheap cork valve cover gaskets, and had zero problems that would have threatened the life of the engine.
