Parts for Sale / 1971 455ho engine
« Last post by Two Birds on May 22, 2015, 12:26:07 PM »
Hello,  on the fence thinking of selling my 1971 455ho engine.  I removed this engine from a running 1971 TA blue auto around 1992 ?  The engine was removed and disassembled except short block to put in storage.   I do not have the exhaust manifolds or distributer lost to time I think.   I have the 7041270 carb, intake alum, 191 heads, YE 4 bolt main short block.  Asking $ 6,200  located in CT.   Don't mind talking Pontiac at all if you questions :-)

Hello,  newbie here in need of a little moderator help.  Just posted in for sale parts and having difficulty with pic size ?  I'm really not all that good with computers so I'm sure I missed something :-(   Is there a way I or a mod can correct it ?  And also how do I avoid in future ?   Working off iPhone at the moment. 
Thank you
Two Birds

Ok tried again but attempted linking the pic, it still posted pic and it's way to big :-(
Tried linking through imgur as BB  link  not img direct post ?

Just looked it up, I got the 80 inch long one thinking that was what I needed. Now I know I would go with the 61 inch. (The cable actually travels less than if it were going to the transducer). I ruined my firewall grommet, so be careful with that. If I could do that over again, I would pull the grommet off first, then feed the new cable through it, then remount the grommet.

Yes, and I just did the same. I got the longer cable to replace the 2 cables, it was actualy too long. If I did it again I would get a shorter one by about a foot.

Thanks Angelo. That is what i will do. I will install an under dash gauge for now.  The other question i have is can i eliminate the cruise control box by just getting a longer cable for a non cruise Trans Am. I removed the 301 and installed an Olds 350 and i am going to clean up the engine compartment and that has got to go.

DriveTrain / 750 Edelbrock stumble

What is the most usual cause for a stumble in a 750 Edelbrock it is on my 78 400 Trans Am. The carb only has about 200 miles on it and I can't figure it out. Thanks for any help.

Needed anchor bolts for my seat belts and a stereo rear speaker wiring harness (with original speaker connectors still attached)!!  Had each the very next day in the mail after she found them.

Here's the article:

That is why I went with a 72 gasket , I did not want turbulence created by the d shaped gasket on a round port intake.
