    your mount looks fine, go ahead and use washers to shim the mount, making it easier the change or remove the belt. charles l. coker 1953 pontiac tech advisor tech advisor coordinator pontiac oakland club int'l.

  8. 1955 - 1958 Power Train

    Are you installing a V8 and transmission into a 1954 and older or 1955 and newer pontiac?, my 55 287 and trans has 60,000 original miles on it, motor is 90% complete, I am keeping the distributor and valley cover/road draft tube, trans is complete less the filler tube/dipstick and control levers. $500.00 for both.
  9. 1955 - 1958 Power Train

    you can use a 1959 pontiac 389, last year for the reverse flow cooling, have a 55 to 58 flywheel machined to clear the 389's crankshaft counterweight, if you're going to have the early style power steering pump, changed the timing cover to a 55 to 58 timing cover. i am doing this myself as i'm putting a 59-389 mated to a 55 pontiac slant pan dual range hydra-matic trans to install into my 1953 pontiac chieftain custom catalina. i have a 55-287 four barrel engine with it's original hydra-matic trans, in good used condition for sale in southwest missouri.
  10. What is this sensor?

    that's a bolt type block heater, you plug in a 110 volt power cord.
  11. What is "Low Mileage"?

    average mileage for annual driving when these old cars were new was no more than 10,000 miles per year. i remember being so car happy when my dad bought me a 1962 impala in 1972, i drove it 10,000 miles in the first six months that i had it. when i bought my 1953 pontiac chieftain custom catalina in 1973 from it's original owners, it had 113,000 miles on the odometer, about 5,600 miles per year then. charles l. coker 1953 pontiac tech advisor tech advisor coordinator pontiac oakland club int'l.
  12. same parts are found on a 1954 star chief.
  13. 1958 Olds mobile Transportable Face Plate Bezel

    what you're looking for is on ebay along with other parts of it.
  14. Bore 249 to 268

    you won't be able to bore oversize 0.125 needed to reach the 268's standard bore of 3.375. you would have to install 8 new cylinder sleeves to have 3.375 bore. i seriously doubt that sonic testing your 249's cylinder walls will show enough thickness to handle a 0.125 increase in the bore. charles l. coker 1953 pontiac tech advisor tech advisor coordinator poci.
