Interior / Re: Passenger Kick Panel Vacuum

It's for air recirculation, work with the fresh air door in the cowl grille. If the cowl closes, the kick panel opens to circulate air. Fresh air mode closes the kick panel and opens the cowl.
I would use a set of PTFB solid mounts. They're not as "pretty" as the DSE's and some other brands but I like them because the steel sleeve makes them stronger in the event of a bad accident. They're unfinished aluminum but you can paint to suit.
Interior / Passenger Kick Panel Vacuum
« Last post by Tochs99 on February 22, 2017, 08:10:27 PM »
What is this for?  Do I need it?  Basically I'm wondering because I have a set of kick panels that hold 6.5" speakers and they don't have the bump out to incorporate the vacuum. If I have my a/C disconnected (no belt) do I need the vacuum?

Does any of this make sense?

Disconnect the connector at the motor and measure for voltage when you move the switch to the down position.  Post the measurements and we can go from there.
Hi guys,

I own a 1976 Trans Am.  32,000 original miles.  400 4-Speed Car.  I am the second owner.

In 2008 I had a ladder bar set-up installed, mini tubs, and an 8 point weld in cage installed.

I've recently ordered Detroit Speed's Powder Coated Single Adjustable Shock Front Subframe (SBC/LS).  I've also ordered their Weld in sub frame connectors.

Unfortunately, Detroit Speed does not sell solid body mounts for 2nd Gen Firebirds...only for Camaros...

So, with that I'm put between a rock and a hard place.  Weld in sub frame connectors require solid body mounts and now my builder and I have to figure out what solid body mounts to purchase.  Detroit Speed said that the core support body mounts are the solid body mounts that cause the difference between the two cars.  Has anyone experienced this by any chance?

Knowing this...I'd like to hear the opinions of others that have made the switch.  Just how drastic of a change was it?  How much louder etc.

Thank you,

Might have to check the harness going to the motors, and spray the door hinges with wd40 and make sure there isn't too much gunk as they ground through the door hinges.
You can also test them by wiring direct to motors, one wire is up and the other is down, grounded through door. Add a new wire from motor, through door jam rubber and into cabin.
Thank you! I will check the motors and go from there.
I am looking for the choke heat tube assembly with the plate that bolts to the intake.  This would be for the stock Pontiac 400 intake. Also any other parts for the intake
