Good luck,

Thanks John,

I don't expect much, but might as well take a look.

John,

Any tricks involved? I have popped one side loose, but just put my foot through the floor trying to pop the passenger side. Would the build sheet be in any specific area, or "somewhere" on the bottom of the seat? I can pull the drivers side up part way, and don't see anything there. I would love to know what I have.

Thanks!

Tom

John,

Thank you for the assistance. In your opinion, could the 3.90 be acceptable for an occasional use crusier if it had an overdrive tranny like the 700r4 or the 2004r? As best as I can tell there is nothing special about my Camaro, and I do not forsee a perfect restoration in the future.

Might be a dumb idea, but the price is right, and I would like a posi.

Thanks again,

Tom

Don't need or want a 411, but I would like a posi. Just picked up a newer 350 truck block to build, and might stroke it. I am going to swap the glide for an overdrive, just not sure which one yet. I was hoping the 411 carrier could accept a milder set of gears. Reason I ask is It's been offered as trade for a junk benz I need to dump.

I'm more interested in the fold down seat than the 411.

Thank for the help,

Tom

I have been told of an available original 411 posi 12 bolt for my car. What should I be looking for if/when I get to check it out. I'm not thrilled with the thought of 411's at least not with today's gas prices. If I get the rear what ratios can be swapped. Mine is a 69 base 307 PG with I believe the economy geared rear.

Same person also may have a fold down rear seat, besides the seat itself, what else is needed to convert to the fold down?

Thanks,

Tom

sounds like a project for somebody. Document the most obvious diffs between the originals and the re-pops. There must be loads........

Have to disagree about Honda junk, my 91 Accord is still running strong at about 220,000 miles(oversize tires underdriving odometer by about 10% and 200,000 on the odo). Maintenance has been extremely rare. 3rd set of brakes, 3rd set of tires, lots of lof's not a lot more than that.

Dave Pozzi (old forum) had a whole web page of info re brake swaps with other GM brake systems of the same era. Not the brand new high tech stuff, but still a whole lot better than drums. Not sure its still there, but its worth a google.

Good luck

Bert,

Thanks, I also just bought the parts interchange book. I will not be doing a show quality resto, so fubctional parts may be good enough.

Ed,

This is good info, would you recommend Jerry's books for someone with just a base 307 PG coupe?

Thanks for all the responses,
The drill is no problem, the compressor could happen very easily. Also I have a body shop nearby, may be able to drive or tow it over to have major cutting done there. Would it be preferable to use patches and just replace the rotted sections? I don't mind spending time, and there are many other patches needed as well. I will probably start inside the trunk, and work my way out to the fenders one patch at a time. I seem to recall reading that it is critical to get doors aligned first. That's more pf the process type info I was really looking for. I would rather be over cautious and do it right the first (and only) time.

First welcome back, and congratulations on the new site. Overall very easy to use and navigate.
I have two minor requests:
Would it be possible to add the links to the bottom of the discussion threads like they are now at the top? If not, maybe a link button back to the topic level by the other link buttons that appear at the top and bottom of each thread. This would simplify going back to read the next topic.
Also could the size of the "news" banner be fixed? Currently when the news item cycles, the section resizes, and the links have a tendency to move up or down on the screen with each change.

Thanks again for a great site, and knowledge that cant be found in books.

Tom
