Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 11 - Fuel Pump Choke and Fans
This should be the last video before we start the car. Today, or plan is to fire it up for the first time. For those who haven't been following along...my son and I are swapping in a carbed 357 in place of the original TPI 305. It has been a fun project so far, with only a couple minor issues to this point. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!
Almost Done - Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 10 357 V8 Street Demon Carb
This is Part 10 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We've
been swapping in a carbed 357 small block in place of the original 305 TPI.
Since the last video, we installed the distributor, plugs, and wires. We
also plumbed in the temporary fuel setup with a Mallory 4309 Regulator.
Then, I painted the factory valve covers and tightened up the belts. We
only have a few more things to get done before we can fire this engine up
for the first time. I hope you find the videos interesting...thanks for
Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 9 - 357 V8 - Alternator Power Steering Water Pump
We're getting closer now, only a few more things before she'll run. We
managed to install the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, heater
hoses, and radiator hoses. Now, we basically have to put in the HEI
distributor, plugs, and some fuel lines...then we'll be ready to fire it
up. There will probably be a couple more vids before we actually start it
for the first time. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it!
It's Alive !!! Trans Am Engine Swap Part 12 - 357 V8 Street Demon Carb 1987 Pontiac TA
The Trans Am is finally running again. The engine is sounding really nice.
Just have a few more things to button up before we can take a little test
drive. The main thing holding us back at the moment is the Throttle Valve
Cable for the trans. I need to get it properly set up before we can drive
it. It feels good just to hear it run well though. Thanks for watching
along, we appreciate it. There will still be many more videos to come in
this engine swap series, as well as more vids on restoring/modifying the
Trans Am in other ways.
1953 Buick Special 2 Dr 263 Straight Eight
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1953 Buick Special. It's
still powered by the original Straight Eight engine. The paint is slick,
the chrome looks great, and the interior has been completely redone. It
really is a great looking car. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for

how to diagnose your fuel system. If your car is idling or running weird
(high idle, low idle, hard to accelerate, studdering, hard to start) then
this is one of the first tests you should do. Diagnose high fuel pressure,
low fuel pressure, a broken check valve in the fuel pump, broken fuel
pressure regulator, or leaking injectors.

Small Engine Repair: Checking Fuel Pump Diaphragm & Inlet Needle on a Diaphragm Carburetor
**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or
maintenance work on Outdoor Power Equipment. Manuals can be found at the
In this video I show how to check the fuel pump diaphragm and inlet needle
for leaks on a diaphragm carburetor. A diaphragm carburetor is used on hand
held power equipment, and are popular because they will work in any
position. All chainsaws, trimmers and blowers that I have seen use a
diaphragm carburetor. To check the fuel pump and inlet needle, pressurize
the carburetor to 10 psi through the fuel inlet. The carburetor should hold
the pressure fairly steady, and if it doesn't than there is a leak around
the fuel pump diaphragm or inlet needle. You can pin point the leak by
dunking the carburetor in water while it is pressurized. If the leak is
around the fuel pump diaphragm, than either the fuel pump diaphragm, fuel
pump diaphragm cover or the body of the carburetor is at fault. If the leak
is coming out of the venturi, than the inlet needle or seat is faulty.
- 3/8" wrench to remove carburetor
- Mityvac to pressurize the carburetor
- Needle Nose plyers
- Carburetor should be pressurized to 10psi through the fuel inlet. Never
exceed 10psi. Its important to run fuel through the carburetor before
testing. A wet carburetor will hold the pressure better than a dry one.
street demon test and review part 4
yes the tip in had minor stumble, but this was expected as an out of the
box no adjustment drop on install. As i said in the video, i moved the pump
rod up one notch and jesus christ does it go hard now!
sounds eerily similar to the old rochester quadrajets from my old days..
va...VOOOOOOOOMMM! ( split second of silence as the secondaries puke fuel
into motor when the drop open, then hold on and keep it straight...:D)

1921 Dodge Brothers Roadster
I thought you'd like a look at this very original 1921 Dodge Brothers
Roadster. It's definitely not something that you get to see everyday.
They've done their best to restore it to it's original appearance. It is
still powered by the flathead four cylinder, backed by a three speed manual
trans. Recently, the car has had many components rebuilt, such as the
clutch, water pump, speedometer, and convertible top. It's also runs and
drives nicely. I hope you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

Homemade Camera Crane Project and Jordans Trans Am
Jordan has been working on a new camera crane and I thought you might like
a look at it. He still had some modifications to make, but I think it's
coming along well. We decided to use the Trans Am to test it out a bit.
Hopefully, with a little more practice, we'll get smoother with it. Thanks
for taking a look!
