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!

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 watching!
