    Rad bushings

    If that’s the case is there a big washer that sandwiches the bolthead and the frame?

    different 700R4's ?

    Darren, here is one option: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/prf-60109/ Or this: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/aww-500412/ A cruise control brake switch is in my 70 and a manual toggle switch. The toggle switch stays in off and when the brakes are applied it disengages.

    Darren, there used to a 700r4 harness available at Summit racing. There is a pressure port on the drivers side of the transmission. Having a threaded Speedo cable sounds like an older trans or maybe someone changed the trail housing.

    Overdrive transmission supplier recommendations

    I have two Bow tie overdrive 700r4 their stage 2 transmission. Both transmissions have a 2200-2400 stall and B&M trick shift fluid. One of the 700r4 is in a 3200lbs car with a 355 small block and a 3.70 rear gear. Car moves really great, at one time we threw a 5.13 gear in the rear and was able to cruise in the 2,000 rpm at 55mph. The other one is in a 3820lbs Monte with a 402 big block and a stock 2.73. Yes a 2.73 gear ain’t ideal when you are trying to cruise in the 2,000 rpm range. But the car is perfectly happy stays right in the 1,650-1,700 range running 55-60 mph. And when you get down on it the car doesn’t wait it picks up and goes. Now the 2.73 gear does make it slow off the line but it makes up for it by speed. If you call bow tie overdrive they will take the time and go over everything with you on the phone they will suggest a stall that will work with your setup and supply what you. On ours they even tested they before they were shipped across country. With a 700r4 they recommend using a turbo350 yoke as it’s the same spline as the 700 but it’s thicker. A 200r4 has a closet gear set in it where the 700r4 has a deep first gear (3.06).

    Aftermarket Temp Gauge

    You can add a water temp sender to the intake if you have an opening. Or you can get a spacer to raise the thermostat and allow for a sending unit to go there. If the TCS is hooked up you may want to leave it, if it’s not hooked up you can remove the TCS. Just remember to drain the coolant below the head or you will have a mess.

    Dragging front brakes

    Someone at a eastern meet had the same problem and it came down to the calipers being bad.

    Fuel injection kit

    Holley just came out with a sniper spreadbore EFI system.

    Staggered or non staggered

    It’s non staggered. They are asking where the shocks are at. I’ve only seen one company ask that due to them putting one caliper in front and one towards the rear.

    Drivers headlight wiring socket bad

    Can you post a picture of your headlight plug? What Rod stated above is true the right side is connected to the left plug. So you would have two light green wires and two tan wires on the drivers side.

    1970 Monte Conversion to Buckets and Center Console

    You shouldn’t need the NSS for the shifter as it should come with it installed. The padding under the carpet I would do sound and heat control on the floors. Also before you buy shop other suppliers as OPGI will cost more for the same part you can get for less. I like to shop at yearone.com and chevelle.com

    Cutting the fleet down

    Darren that’s sitting too. Before my dad got sick he had talked about selling his Nomad. He had even talked to a guy who wanted to buy it but do to cold weather moving in at the time there was no way the work was going to be done. A few months back that same guy called back to see if the car was still for sale and if the work had been done. Thomas I do have pictures of the car even have a gallon of black cherry for the top.
