HOW TO FIND THE COMPRESSION STROKE WITH A BALLOON & TDC. ONLY BALLOON TRICK ON YOUTUBE
Automotive technician since 1991, I show an easy method for finding TOP
DEAD CENTER ON THE COMPRESSION STROKE for #1 cylinder using a screw driver,
hose from a compression tester and a BALLOON. Yeeeep a Balloon. its simple
and can be done just by taking out the #1 spark plug. These methods work
for all 4 stroke engines and will help you find that dreaded TDC on the
compression stroke so you can line up your timing belt correctly. I also
explain Camshaft Lobe position and why it needs to be off the lifters for
compression to take place. KEEP IN MIND you DO NOT need to take the valve
covers off to perform this task, I only have them off because I am changing
the head gaskets on this vehicle..Another thing also, if your piston rings
are bad (not sealing properly) or your valves are not seated and sealed
tight you will have low compression and if it is extreme, it will not
inflate the balloon. Keep your faith strong in Christ and never ever give
up! Excuse me for calling the Crankshaft pulley bolt a Nut lol, I blame it
on my A.D.D. lol

This low mileage 1979 Tran Am is a fully documented, all original time
capsule which comes factory equipped with Pontiac's highly desirable 6.6
litre W72 engine and an M21 Muncie 4-speed transmission for a FRACTION of
what most investment grade classics cost.
Assembled at GM's Van Nuys, California manufacturing facility, this super
clean, all original Pontiac Trans Am was shipped to Andy Klein Pontiac-GMC
in Overland Park, Kansas on November 20th of 1978. Exceptionally maintained
since the day its proud owner parked it in his driveway, the car has never
been taken apart for any restoration or major body repairs and still
presents a clear and flat coat of original GM code 11 Cameo White paint.
Since those straight and rust free original body panels have never been
disassembled, they still display completely accurate panel gaps which give
the car surprisingly solid fit and a cool factory fresh appearance which
modern builds simply can't duplicate.
Pop this Trans Ams long, colorful hood and you'll find an all original PWH
stamped 400 cubic inch W72 engine which, in the eyes of many hardcore
Pontiac enthusiasts, is the last true Pontiac V8 ever produced. Thanks to
government mandated emissions standards, performance had almost been
legislated out of existence, and that left the Trans Am suffering a bit of
an identity crisis. By utilizing smaller "6X" heads from a 350 and a
revised camshaft, the W72 created higher compression and successfully
reversed almost a decade of declining horsepower numbers. At the
top of the motor, an original Rochester 4-barrel carburetor sits under the
cars awesome shaker scoop and an original HEI distributor sends power to
the cylinders through black plug wires. Below that carburetor, original GM
corporate blue paint coats the entire block and original Exhaust manifolds send Exhaust into a high performance factory Exhaust system.
Take a look under this all original Trans Am and you'll find a straight,
rust-free frame which still displays a nice coat of GM satin black paint,
and clean, solid floors which carry absolutely no defect camouflaging
undercoating. Behind the motor, a W72-exclusive Muncie M21 4-speed manual
transmission sends power to the cars original 10 bolt rear end, and a
standard WS6 handling package. For 1979, the newly dubbed WS6 package
included larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering
gear box and newly designed code J65 power front and rear disc brakes that,
when combined with the cars standard power steering, made for serious
handling ability and greatly reduced stopping distances. In the middle of
the floor pans, an original dual Exhaust system still carries original GM
mufflers and catalytic converters in front of correct stainless side
splitter tips, and, at the corners of the car, power flows to the pavement
through ORIGINAL 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials and
awesome, original 15 inch snowflake wheels.
Open this Trans Ams solid doors and you'll find an absolutely pristine
original deluxe interior that shows virtually no signs of wear at all. The
firm and comfortable high backed seats are especially nice pieces which
have the supple appearance of much more expensive hardware, and the
original black carpet looks great beneath correct rubber mats. In the
middle of the car, a clean black console houses chrome switches for
optional power windows behind a chrome Hurst shifter with a cool Pontiac
shift knob. Above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight
around the cars mirrored tops and optional dome lamp; and in front of the
seats, an excellent looking engine turned dash bezel houses crystal clear
gauges above HVAC controls and an original Delco-GM AM/FM cassette player.
At the sides of the car, awesome, plush door panels feature bright red
emblems above well-maintained stainless trim, chrome switches and chrome
handles. And in front of the driver, a correct aluminum Formula steering
wheel sits on an optional tilt steering column.
This clean 1979 Trans Am is the perfect opportunity to own an investment
grade muscle car that you can still drive around town and show off. Call,
