I own a 79 T/A with a 403 engine. I want to keep the original motor and put a newly rebuilt CHEVY 400 I took from my 78 G30 Van. I have not taken the motor out of the T/A yet and would like to know if I will have problems mounting the 400 in the T/A ..I also had the 350 tranny rebuilt from the 78 G30. Would that tranny bolt into the T/A ?? The T/A has the original automatic tranny in it now.

Are the outside door handles for the early second gen TA longer or shorter than for the late (1979) 2nd gen TAs?  Jay

Looking for the internal emission parts for my carb 7040562 - extremely hard to find.   I don't have a parts breakdown for this carb so I won't know when I have found all the parts needed. Would you know of any shop or old rebuilder that may have a manual that specifically shows the parts for a 7040562 and anyone that may have them ?  Jay

You should post these in the "Trans Am Tech" and "Parts Wanted" sections. This is for help with the forum. ;)

Suggestion:

 In the profiles section, have a small list of threads the user is subscribed to. That way you can go to the user CP and check on the discussions you're in without having to chase them down.

Just a suggestion.

Gunner,

When you sign in at the top of the page, you should see two links:

Show unread posts since last visit.
Show new replies to your posts.

I think that may be what you are referring to?

Kinda works like that, only it shows a list of threads that you've subcribed to, weither you've posted in them or not. That way you can go and backtrack the threads you've been in, say if you're looking for certain information on a subject, or something like that.

Go to your profile and click on "Notifications and Email". That will give you the list.

Have you ever thought of having people leave their orginal ads in the for sale section and just adding sold to the subject line instead of deleting them? On a couple of other forums I go to they do this and it keeps people more aware of what the market is for a part by being able to see what a like part may have sold for in the past. I know as a new TA owner it would be valuable to me to be able to look back at old posts and see what say a 79 nose sold for a month ago instead of just seing SOLD in the body of the thread.

Just my .02.

Can we split up the Cars For Sale vs the Cars Wanted divisions?

Yes, right now, the parts and whatever that are sold, they do not get deleted.  at least by me.  Sometimes the people themselves go back in and delete what was showing in there, but there is nothing I can do to stop them from doing that.
