As you can see in my pictures I got the tailgate open ........ And just as I thought... I need another one..... only thing worth saving is the outer skin and the glass..... everything else is rotted......(not sure if it can be saved....)
Does anyone know if the 1960 Chevy wagon manuel tailgate guts are same as Pontiac...??
The two Pontiac gates I found are just shells..... one is power and the other is manuel..... and very pricey...... so in search for a tailgate..... with all the guts..... Wait any one know where I can get tailgate parts......( regulator....inner tracks.....etc. ...?)
Both Pontiacs have a 389.....
And both locked up...... the wagon is locked up and I don’t know anything about it........ the Ventura turned free about 6 months ago and now it will not turn.....
What can I do to free them up and see if they run.....??
Hi everyone..... as I said I have two 389’s that I have to free up...... then the better of the two will be rebuilt.....and put in the wagon.....
Would like some input on complete rebuilding kit and goodies ..... every thing for a Pontiac is expensive......wanna kinda keep a budget...... not sure if I’ll go with aluminum heads because of the price....
Well here’s my list.....
Gear drive ( I like/want the noise )
New timing cover (11 bolt)
New water pump
New oil pan
New fuel pump
That’s my wish list...... so everyone go ahead and pick at it........ what’s missing....or what’s to much..or what’s not needed.......
389 will be in the wagon.....
Plan on it being a daily driver..... but would like to do a burnout when I want to without hurting any thing....
Thank you in advance......
I would remove the gear drive and roller rockers and substitute roller tipped rockers. Remove the spark plugs squirt oil into cylinders wait a few days squirt more oil in and try to turn crankshaft bolt.
