Pontiac V8 Water Pump Modification Tip Video V8TV "Routy" 69 Firebird

http://www.v8tvshow.com/69firebird - The Pontiac 400 V8 engine that we're using in our 1969 Firebird project called "Routy" came to us completely as a rebuilt long-block with all new parts inside, but we were charged with the task of doing the final assembly and detail work. This time, we're test-assembling the brackets and parts on the engine, and came across a great tip to help keep your Pontiac V8 engine running cool.

1969 Firebird "Routy" Trunk Floor Replacement Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The trunk floor area in our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" was looking pretty rough, so we elected to use an assortment of repair panels from Classic Industries to replace the rust and previous damage repairs. The process went pretty smoothly, and we were able to butt-weld and plug weld the new pieces in leaving a factory appearance with no evidence we were ever there. A coat of Eastwood Epoxy Primer will help keep them rust free for good.

1969 Firebird Seam Sealer Video - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After the metalwork was completed on the bottom side of our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy", we applied some Eastwood Epoxy Primer to the underside and inside of the body shell to prevent rust and to provide a base for the next steps. We then sealed all the seams with 3M Automix Heavy Bodied Seam Sealer (8308) using their pneumatic applicator. We like to mask off the seams with 3M tape, then apply the sealer, brush it smooth, and then peel the tape before the sealer hardens. The sealer ensures no moisture will creep between the panels and start to rust. Once sealed up, we scuffed the primer and applied several coats of Eastwood 2K Ceramic Chassis Black on the bottom and inside of the body. The 2K Ceramic Chassis Black looks like the factory black used on chassis parts, but is far more durable than regular paint.





PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru 1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in 1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac). PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the 1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The 1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced. Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980 the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8 blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25 pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.

1969 Pontiac Firebird Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We reassembled our restored front suspension with some new tricks to make our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" drive and handle better. First we replaced all the stock worn-out control arm bushings with some new Global West Del-A-Lum bushings for minimal deflection and smooth articulation. Then we replaced all the loose steering components with new parts from Classic Industries, including a new steering box, tie rod ends, center link, ball joints, idler arm, and pittman arm. Once we could put the wheels back on, we rolled the subframe under the body, aligned it, and bolted it up. Out back, we added some Del-A-Lum bushings to the Detroit Speed & Engineering 3" drop leaf springs and put the rear axle assembly back in the car. Classic Industries had more hard-to-find nuts and clips for the front leaf spring mounts. Now we can hang all the sheetmetal back on the car and start the panel alignment!

1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" Floor Replacement - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy" was a pretty clean car to start with, but we wanted to improve upon some previous repairs in the floor and trunk floor area. In this installment, we replace the driver's side floor pan with a 1-piece replacement from Classic Industries. There are tips in this video that apply to any musclecar restoration.





1969 Pontiac Firebird Project: Body Media Blasted V8TV
The moment of truth...our project 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" came home from the media blaster. We had the interior, underside, trunk, and firewall of the body tub blasted, along with stacks of smaller parts like the inner fender wells, the radiator core support, and all the bumper brackets. We also had the complete subframe and suspension parts blasted, but that's a different story. This time, we're taking a closer look at the condition of the body. This car had many previous repairs, and it's not really fair for us to point out the details of previous work, but we think it's important to illustrate what we found and to make some observations on what we're starting with.

1969 Firebird "Routy" Project Updates V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy" is going through the early phases of its transformation, with many small detail items being checked off the list as we go. In this installment, we fix rusty bodymounts and straighten some slightly damaged supports on the subframe. Then we're repairing rust holes in the radiator core support, inner fenders, and small holes in the body. We uncovered a patch in the fender we didn't like, so we replaced it with new steel using some cool butt-welding panel clamps from Eastwood. A quick spray with Standox SprayMAX 2K Epoxy Primer keeps the part protected until the bodywork phase. This stuff is cool.. it's a Standox 2k epoxy primer in an aerosol can. That means it's got a primer and a catalyst in one container... you break the seal on the can, and the two components mix inside the can. You have to spray it out within about 1 week or it will harden in the can. It's really tough stuff that sprays great over little repair areas like this where you don't want to mix a whole gun full of material. The firewall was welded up in anticipation of a Vintage Air air conditioning unit. The subframe and front sheetmetal parts were sprayed with Eastwood Epoxy Primer and Extreme Ceramic Chassis Black paint for long lasting protection and a factory-like satin appearance. Finally, we installed some Global West Del-A-Lum bushings in the front suspension pieces. Next phase... floor and trunk floor repairs!
