Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Checked some of my hood and bed wiring. Everything worked...phew.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Happy New Year! I finally got some customer stuff out the door before the end of the year, and had a little time to work on my own stuff New Year's Eve. Did some systems tests on the passenger power window install and master switch, as well as the AM/FM Stereo MP3 conversion.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

In the throes of wiring, I thought I would do a quick test of the Ron Francis reverse relay dome/courtesy light conversion for our trucks.

Front windshield installed. Big props to Precision Replacement Parts for the best fitting front windshield seal for the wrap-around glass.

Thanks! I was able to get the bed back on the next day and double checked the rear wiring harness.

It's the windshield that came with the truck. I had a difficult time trying to find the door, vent, and back glass that matched the green tint.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Vin, the green tint is AC glass.
At least that's what I call it.
I had a small stash that I could have helped you out with at the time.
I hope you bring that truck to one of Steve''s Pontiac get togethers..
Would love to "shake a hand, make a friend."
I'm pushing to get mine done for the next one.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

I ended up getting the door, vent, and back glass from a local auto glass business...probably the same supplier for the other mail order places.

oh, man, Steve would never let me in with a Chevy truck even before his snowboarding accident. I will keep you posted when I'm out your way - I have friends in the Phoenix area and I'm looking at buying some property in Prescott.

Got the air suspension controls wired and plumbed...did a low pressure test.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Steve has invited me on multiple occasions and said to bring my prostreet truck...
He knows I use Pontiac exclusively.
I'm sure your truck would be welcome.
She's a beauty AND has an improved drive train.. lol ;-)

Air looks good..
I haven't had any luck running airsprings on anything with power..
Guess I'm stuck in the static coil over generation. ..

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks! This is the last time he talked to or acknowledged me (the last Pontiac Heaven event at old Speedworld Dragstrip). If my truck was a GMC, he might let me in, but even then it would be questionable.

Thanks! Yeah, it's a March system that was given to me in exchange for some exhaust system welding I did for a friend after he decided to go with one of their newer systems

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

I have my motor ready to set in my C40 crew. I just need to find an affordable bell housing...
LOL..
BUT, I might just opt for the 4L85E instead. ..
I think the Lil poncho I built for this truck will do nicely.. ��

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Funny you should mention the overdrive auto transmission. This (4L80e) is what is behind my Pontiac. I think with the transmission connected to the engine while installing it was approaching 900 lbs...doing it by myself was tougher than I remember.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

I got my 4L85E out of a 97 dually..
Has the bolt on yoke..
And they are indeed heavy..
Couldn't imagine trying to get it in with the cab and front clip on..

😂
