  1. Did you put any dye in there, to help look for leaks?
  2. Yes, for the 70-71 years, the only way to get a 454 was if the car was a 'SS454'. As we know, there was no SS for 1972, only the 'Custom' model, though that could be had with any available engine/trans combination, including 454.
  3. Steve, A 72 Monte that came from the factory with a 454 engine. The 'W' is part of the VIN, as the engine designation code.
  4. I doubt they'll like me either. I tend to refer to those cars as 'sh!tstangs', even to the owners that bring them to the shop 😁.
  5. Hello Matt, Welcome to the FGMCC! I think you may need the part under the steering wheel, pictured below. Only problem is you have to remove the steering wheel lock plate to get to it. The one on the left pictured came with a steering wheel I got, the green is OEM. I'll look around for a source, worst case I'll send you the white one. That being said, I tend to like the OEM for that stuff as I've had aftermarket horn hardware not work as good. Green may be non-tilt, White may be for tilt column. I may call your number too 🙂 EDIT: Amazon has a couple, though it makes a difference if it's a tilt I think, https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-83233-Turn-Signal-Cam/dp/B0024GMB82/ref=pd_lpo_sccl_1/135-1592424-0550804?pd_rd_w=UuGkt&content-id=amzn1.sym.1ad2066f-97d2-4731-9356-36b3edf1ae04&pf_rd_p=1ad2066f-97d2-4731-9356-36b3edf1ae04&pf_rd_r=MR58Y30Y8Z7XZFVCYB9T&pd_rd_wg=cuy2G&pd_rd_r=04f7b1e4-eb04-4c4a-8f8c-5f8ae46ff7fd&pd_rd_i=B0024GMB82&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/VSW-Non-Tele-Compatible-1969-1996-STC1007/dp/B07QQ3PNGB?source=ps-sl-shoppingads-lpcontext&ref_=fplfs&psc=1&smid=A18017VO8YGHY3 From Muscle Car Central: https://www.musclecarcentral.com/1969-1972-Chevelle-and-Nova-Horn-Contact-p/ste-112.htm https://www.musclecarcentral.com/1967-1972-Chevelle-Nova-Horn-Contact-Cam-p/ste-111a.htm From SS396: https://www.ss396.com/category/monte-carlo-steeringwheelparts.html?page=1 Classic Industries: https://www.classicindustries.com/product/7812211.html?gad_source=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIlNDuwYCWhgMVjV3_AR1pzg2ZEAQYASABEgJNT_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds (EDIT: I spoke to Matt, he has a tilt column, so the white one would be the correct part, for those who may find themselves in a similar situation).
  6. We ended up doing a video call for over an hour. That worked out pretty well, made it a lot easier to identify connectors and circuits. His 1970 is a little different than the others, so my old 72 harness I have was not quite the same, but still helpful. What did people do years ago before the internet & this high technology, lol. It certainly has made the world a smaller place, and easier to get stuff accomplished, despite some of the downsides of it as well.
  7. Did you get factory replica/replacement harnesses, or the entire Update Series 510336 harness? I sent you a PM with my number.
  8. I've had good luck with the GM Performance Parts water necks actually. O-ring seal & thick enough flange where it doesn't leak. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/nal-12342024?srsltid=AfmBOoqvBMprjF1woC_wd5BZ35O5HtIhT4UtmhTF-5lUT8yi3ljary36llA https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-GM-Performance-12342024-Chrome/dp/B00G51R9VQ?source=ps-sl-shoppingads-lpcontext&ref_=fplfs&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  9. Just call, you have my phone number already.
  10. You're welcome! If you have any questions, PM me & I'll send you my phone number. I have some experience with the AAW full wiring kits (in fact, another Monte is coming to the shop in a couple weeks for a full harness and Dakota Digital dash install). The horn relay is simply a bus location for the 12 volts. A central termination point, of sorts, that gets distributed to different places from there.
  11. No, horn relay is built into the AAW harness. It will be inside the car, near the fuse box now.
  12. There's a dome light style bulb in the very back of the console. Lights up the rear seat floor area.
  13. Now you sound like Mark...
