So I pulled this of a 73 that was pretty original, I also pulled another one off a 73 that was a bendix, also have a bendix off a 72 manual brake car, but I have seen many off the brass ones on some low mile cars and one on a sd. included vin just incase it helps.

Default long time between posts

Has been a long time between posts but I have been active in sourcing and buying parts.

When I purchased the car I was starting out my family also so we have had 3 little ones and that has made life busy but it gets easier and than we were left with an unexpected blow. We lost my father unexpectedly in the first week of 2017 to cancer. It was too late when he reached hospital and came as a big shock to us all as he was seemingly healthy and never complained. We are thankful he didn't suffer but it left us in a lot of pain.

Me and dad spent a lot of time on cars. I was hooked by 5 and was tinkering away in the garage from an early age. We went to a lot of shows and American cars were always on Dad's list. We spent a good 30 years on the Pontiac scene attending shows and watching from the shadows until he purchased a 79 Clone TA in the mid 90's and still have it today 20 years on and great to cruise in.

Dad was by my side when my TA arrived on the truck. He was their when the Super Duty arrived in the crate and unpacked it with me. We spoke and read about Pontiacs a lot. He was proud to see that HPP edition Jan 2011 with the car and a little write up on us and kept that in his folder packed away.

So 2017 was a BLUR really and time goes by. Been searching for bits and pieces to keep this project going. I will start to post some over the coming weeks. I haven't lost site of the bigger picture of this Project and keeping it right. Haven't touched the Body at all as I am not ready to put the time in for it at the moment but as kids get off to school I will find it then. Really the Focus has been finding what I need for the Motor.



Michael

Managed to get some NOS 6 prong Centre caps. And this is where my dash is up to so far. Took a long time to find all the screws and hardware to secure all the gauges in place and glove box. Obviously alot of work still ahead fpr this dash to get to saddle tan. Most likely recover as it is dry and cracked in some places but will try to restore it first. Also steering column cover will need some work as had vinyl glued down on to it. Hopefully can be saved.

Very sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I am somewhat new here and just found this thread but I do remember reading about it. Good luck with the project and I'm glad your back to moving forward with it.

Thanks guys. Much appreciated.

Some of the parts I have slowly collected.
Hopefully they are right keeping in mind trying to achieve the early emission routing.

Brad has a few parts aside for me and has been a great help. Thermostat housing, pulleys and emission piping.

Timing cover
Some 30 over pistons as spares as block will stay standard bore most likely.
Timed emission switch.

Michael so sorry to read about your Father passing on.
Amongst all the other great things in your life , must have been great to have a Dad who also admired Pontiacs.

Congrats on 3 Kids too !
Hope you can afford them along with a SD restoration.
Good gosh !

I wasn't on forum for a while and didn't know you had found the Engine Block you wanted.
This whole story has been so amazing.
You have handled it like a champion all the way , especially on a working mans budget , and from a different continent.

A toast to you , and a salute.
Rock On and Let It Roll.

Thanks BVZ,

The dollar has not been great for us so by the time i exchange and put freight cost can easily double especially on small items so i try to minimise alot of that and chase the bits i really need at the moment.

Heres a question. Engine Bolt kits. I see a few of them.

I need correct cylinder head bolts and was thinking of getting one of the engine bolt kits for all the external parts all bagged and sorted.

What are they like or who has the.

I am sure there's a company that used to make them for GM that is still doing them.

Michael

SD heads used different set of bolts than the normal Pontiac.


Not sure who would have the special bolts?
(copper coated?)

I think at least 2 bolts are longer than HO bolts.
At least 3 are copper colored.
Been a while since I had SD heads and bolts.

Was able to get an Alternator. 1100902 37A unit. Date code a little early 0A15 but will be good for now. Quite happy to have finally got one.

Michael, I think you need the 927 for your '73 if yours had the 37 amp.
