PONTIAC ALLEY with "T.K."/ Buick 455 Stage-1 Regal TCI Shifter Update #8. 7-16-2011
The TCI shifter looks DEVASTATING!!! Tyrone did a perfect install ... considering there were parts MISSING ... apparently Giovanni's shop "mis-placed" them. After the "TCI" became "a-walk-in-the-park-to-me," I decided to raise the "idle" on the Holley750 by 100-rpm. The Stage-1 refused to turn over! The starter was NOT engaging. I immediately "knew" it had to be the orange-thinner-gauge wire I used on the starter ... instead of the THICKER GAUGED RED WIRE I was supposed to use. This video shows that thin/incorrect wire "melted" onto the TA Exhaust header tube. Tomorrow after work ... I am correcting this. I have the correct wire now. The aluminum plate for the TCI shifter column will be purchased next weekend ... and I will then be able to mount the (Park, Reverse, etc) shifter plate securely. NEXT-STOP; BRAND-NEW HOLLEY 850-CFM from Holley.com!!!!!
Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
My D&S Performance Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal's TCI Street-Fighter Shifter Update #3. 7-15-2011
This is THE-BIG-DAY!!! I just bought the Stage-1 home from the garage ... waiting for Tyrone's 2:40pm arrival, so we go install my TCI Street Fighter Shifter!!! I am scheduled to follow Tyrone to his shop. NOTICE#1; I gave the Stage-1 a few "revs" at the black Mustang ... whose driver gave me a nice "head-nod." NOTICE#2; The white Infiniti "got scared" and abruptly made a quick-left turn ... cause' the BIG-BLOCK-BUICK was shaking his vehicle tremendously! OH-YEAH; a small 3200-rpm BURNOUT before I parked!
