  1. My 64 Bonneville has a "Littel" fuse/relay mounted on the drivers fenderwell that has apparently burnt out. The battery, starter cellenoid, ignition, a red wire from the, dash and a capacitor (also mounted on the fenderwell) all connect to a post terminal on one end of the relay/fuse. There is a two post clip that is on the other end that connects with wiring from the dash. My Battery, connections, cables, starter/cellenoid, and ignition/wireing are all OK; but the car does nothing when I turn the key to start. Nothing electrical comes on. I checked and there is no short problem either. UIt ju
  2. I just took apart the old filter. Wow! It sure was caked with burnt black RTV! How could someone be so foolish!? The exhaust is more like 1+ inches away from the tube. I also made a temp heat protective wrap on the tube in that area, until I get the header wrap. I also made an improvised rubber grummet for the dipstick cap. If my stick is correct, which I believe it is; and if it is correctly seating, then, according to how it reads on the stick at proper temp, I have the correct amount of fluid in it at 9 1/2 qts. The fluid just reaches the top of the 1/3" long small cylinder-like icon, just
  3. Thanks "Sevep" I do have a check ball in the bottom of the tube and the tube is not restricted. The steel ball is approx 8mm in diameter. it is hed in place by two metal prongs attatched to the inside of the tube. I was wondering if the check ball might be worn to where fluid gets past it to easily? Anyway, it's not really "burping" out the tube anymore. The exhaust is still too close to the tube in my opinion. Its really only 1 1/2 inches awau from the elbow. I am going to buy some 2"titanium/lava header wrap and wrap the header past where the tube is close; and also where the exhaust runs
  4. :)"Cobravii", "helfin", "Rusty O'Toole", "NTX5467", and "coldwar": I'm Finally getting back to you guys about my 64 Bonneville transmission problem. My gasket and filter that I ordered online from Merlinn came friday, the 31st. Saturday, I drove it about 25 miles to my inlaws where a friend and I worked on it. He's owned some older pontiacs and is a reasonably good mechanic. Well, as soon as he got in the car with me to drive the last 10 miles to my inlaws, he suggested that the real problem may likely be one that he had found out years ago on his 69 Pontiac. As I drove with him, the transmiss
  5. Thanks, "Helfen","Rusty_OToole" and NTX5467. Your experience and advise is appreciated. I have found a new filter and gasket set on E-Bay, and it should be here in a couple days. I also found and purchased both a dealership shop diagnostic manual and a service manual on CD for the 1960-1964 Pontiac Jetaway Controlled Coupling Hydra-Matic Transmission. I would like to know where I could purchase a new or better dip stick that would be appropriate for this transmission as well. The metal/rubber baffle is just as questionably seviceable as is the uncertain length and markings on my current dip st
  6. I'm having problems with my 64 Bonneville's Super Hydra-matic 315 Dual Coupling Jetaway Transmission. It is "burping" about a half cup of fluid out of the dip stick tube each time put it in park and turn off the motor.:eek: I have put in new fluid, and checked it in neutral after driving in all gears, to ensure the fluid is at the proper level. Does anyone know exactly how much fluid this transmission holds, and/or have any ideas what could be wrong?:confused:
