    48 years ago today!

    Bruce, that is great , i will have my monte for 40 years on 6/15/20, i remember looking out my parents bathroom window at my monte in 1980 in the next door neighbors driveway saying to myself ,that some day that will be my car, Tom worked in michigan for gm also and ordered the monte and traded in a 1970 corvette lt1 350 ,with 350 horse ,to start a family, he wanted the room that a monte has ,hence the non power windows,etc.

    MC454SS Vacuum Leak, or.....?

    I had a mechanic show me a trick ,but have a fire extinguisher handy, take a propane bottle and open it up, with the torch UNLIT ,and while the car is running at idle slowly wave the propane gas ,around the base of the carb, and see if the idle changes, i also had vacuum issues for a very long time and could not figure it out. the propane trick indicated i had a bad carb ,base gasket ,changed that now car runs great , i must have overtightened my carb bolts,

    turbo 400 electrical plug

    i will try cutting the boot, to further the install, could this be why my passing gear does not want to kick down when i mash on the gas ,sometimes it will kick down sometimes it wont,thanks

    turbo 400 electrical plug

    cody , yes the picture on op is exactly what i have also there is a clip above that ,that holds the wires in place ,my black rubber boot is really dry rotted and is original and won't snap onto the white or clear piece coming off the trans that might explain why my kick down works only some times, can that plug be bought and the wires spliced thanks a lot
