Great story! Junk yard finds were always a lot of fun. Too bad it's a lost pastime. At least around here, junk yards have gone the way of the dodo bird in NJ.

Turns out, in stock form, the 80 lb. pump was overkill - rule of thumb is 10 pounds per 1000 rpm. 60 lb. pump is perfect for these high torque Pontiac engines, in stock configuration. The 80 lb....

Yes. but the Suburban will be much less smiles per mile.

BTW, on these long distance, highway trips, for me, the SD got 17 mpg (with A/C on), the Formula got 18 (but that was with the 2.41 rear).

I always try to make this show. I had a 20 year attendance record going from 1985 to 2005. Then I had to skip a few years due to family matters. I am planning to make it in 2018 with the green SD.
