Restoration Projects / Long overdue 78 build
« Last post by 19TransAm78 on March 16, 2019, 04:54:10 PM »
My 78 T/A that was bought as a pre-retirement gift to myself. I knew it was not in the best shape, was shocked to see how bad it actually was. I let her sit for a year because I knew the extent of metal work was outside my wheelhouse. Well Shes finally getting the love she needs. So shes numbers matching, which is cool but at the same time not a huge influence to the build. 403, 350 trans, 2.42 rear gear. and a lot of rust. shes going to be fun though, just taking my time.

DriveTrain / 1980 T/A transducer vacuum for cruise control
« Last post by Dinero on March 15, 2019, 10:57:26 PM »
I am curious, where does the vacuum get created at for the cruise control, at the transducer or at diaphragm? the cruise on my 80 T/A quit working. I have checked all hoses, all ok, no leaks. There are no hoses going to the block or carb for vacuum either. When I squeeze the diaphragm the moves the linkage at the carb ok. So when I pull the hoses off the transducer I do not hear or feel any vacuum been created. So does that mean that the transducer is faulty? Thank you
p.s. the cruise control used to work ok before and if I remember,  when I would pull a hose off the transducer the car idle speed would roughen up like a vacuum leak. when I put the hose back on it would go back to smooth idle.

Very impressive, my blue had rust advantages over your rig.  Once complete, love to see the finished product.

Super old thread. Anyone selling these NOS items ever scan the paperwork? It'd be nice to see how they work up close. Do the rods that hold the centre up for cleaning do anything when not in use, just sit loosely under sides?
