but a satisfactory outcome.

...look way down for final thoughts... (spoiler)
Production of the Chevrolet Monza came to a close with the 1980 Monza line,
bringing down the curtain on the Monza's 5 year run, and did it with a
The Monza lost its Vega-based wagon variant, reverting to two-door
hatchback and notchback coupe body styles. It also lost its V-8 option.
That left just the standard 86-horsepower 2.5-liter
(151-cubic-inch) "Iron Duke" four-cylinder engine and Buick's 110-horsepower 3.8-liter
(231-cubic-inch) V-6 to haul around more than 2,800 pounds of Monza.
As often happened during the mid-1970s and into the 1980s, "paint-on
performance" substituted for horsepower, and the Monza
hatchback embraced this philosophy though the Spyder package.
Front and rear spoilers and gaudy hood and flank decals certainly made the
Spyder look fast. But even with a four-speed manual transmission backing up
the 3.8-liter V-6, a Spyder could barely break 16 seconds in the 0-60-mph
dash. In fairness, that wasn't terribly slow by 1980 standards. But today,
with 0-60 times of under nine seconds not uncommon for even economy cars,
it might be branded downright dangerous.
Nevertheless, production of the Chevrolet Monza actually increased slightly
in 1980, reaching nearly 170,000 units, up from 163,833. That was not a bad
showing for a cramped car with lackluster performance and relatively poor
It was not good enough to save the Monza, however. Chevrolet decided to
shelve the antiquated design and let the Chevrolet Camaro and new Chevrolet Citation
X-11 absorb whatever was left of the sporty-coupe market.
The car was bought by a friend with intentions of quickly restoring it for
a family member, but after realizing the poor car was flagged, it was
deemed wayyy too much work to fix, and unfortunately was sent to the scrap
heap. Every usable piece was ripped off, and for once I benefited from the
mess, free of charge. Another rare but not valuable car lost to the evils
of time, stupidity and nature. Fortunately, it and 1 other Spyder, plus
many other H-bodies, will live on in to kick major ass in the Sunbird!
Stay tuned for its completion and updates.
How to install or change or replace gears and bearings in a rear end or differential
Installation of carrier bearings, pinion bearings, ring and pinion and a
crush sleeve are covered in this video. The main tricks given in the video
are about the actual set up bearings. The rear end being worked on is a
8.5 inch gm 10 bolt out of a second generation f body. Tooth contact
pattern charts are available on the internet, do your own research.

I hope you like it. These were made for only 5 years. The stock engine was
a four banger. The guy that had it before me put in a chevy 305 v8.
Chevy Monza causes cows to stampede
A supercharged Chevy Monza practicing drag race launches on the back roads
of New Mexico (surrounded by cattle ranches). Local cattle are at first
startled by the mere sound of the car starting up, then curiousity gets the
best of them as they come back to see what all the noise is about. The
first launch sends them off on a stampede. The second launch is more than
one cow can take as it begins bucking wildly.
