Shouldn't trans case have last 6 of the VIN? Just curious why save $65 if it appears to be important to you that the car is numbers matching? No one can clarify the info you seek other than PHS. And even they may not be able to. It could be a misstamp, etc....

The clutch safety switch isn't all that important and you can prob skip it. As long as you can rig up the backing lights you should be ok. I have to deal with the 4 sp linkage on my 69 goat. What a PIA. If you can get away without it and you're not an originality fanatic it's...

I also have a 1.1/8 after market bar. Here is something to think about and while I am not sure this is the case, but just the design of the new aftermarket sway bars is why I am thinking these clamps are not needed. If you look at the originals they pretty straight from the cen...

Is this one of those... while you're in there items... for example should I replace the sending unit while i'm there? I would assume it is original although seems to be working fine. And while the tank it dropped I suppose its a good time to deal with the holes in the trunk p...

I don't see a page 4-29. Torque specs on page 4-19 do not include the rear axle U bolt nuts. Best I found elsewhere was generic for the U bolt shank/thread for grade 5 and 8, not specific to Firebird. This pdf contains some good info on the importance of having these installed...

I have a completely restored suspension and drivetrain removed from my Firebird. The car was restored just before we bought it. It was removed because we bought the car to do as a pro-touring project. The engine is a Pontiac 400, I believe the engine is from 1974. I've attached a...
