  2. What is the rationale or argument for or against having the insulation versus none? mike
  3. Thanks sounds like a great deal! aint gonna come close to that in my area!
  4. Yes, I do have a mechanic that has done a lot with the car since I got it. i do trust him but again have only had the car since spring. he has taken it apart enough to see the bearings but not completely.. he was waiting for my decision. He assumes there’s more bearings involved as well as evidence that someone had the crankshaft out and remachined it. He feels it may not have been re installed properly. he will remove and transport engine to the rebuilder he uses. he will along with a transmission guy he uses go through transmission and check it out and replace seals. all told I’m looking at $6 to $8 k depending on what is discovered in the engine and transmission. since I’m doing none of this myself I was hoping for input on the cost proposal he has given me thanks
  5. Hard to give more details yet.. what I do know is that main bearings, rod bearings have wear. metal in pan crankshaft needs replaced so.. going to be a pretty complete rebuild. looking for cost estimate on the whole ball of wax.. hiring it done.. not me!
  6. Looking for advice and opinions. 1970 Monte SS 454. what should I expect to pay my mechanic to remove the engine... send to rebuilder.. check out and replace seals in transmission while at it.. then put engine back in.. ? Thanks mike

    Radiator advice

    Would like a one stop shop purchase for new radiator, hoses, clamps .. everything.. to replace in my 1970 454 SS. advice please thanks mike
  10. For what it’s worth.. here’s the nada data:
  11. Hello M Wesson, im the guy who first found and posted this car. seriously considered it.. “jimmy “ the sales guy I dealt with.. always seemed nice but never got me what I asked for.. the details of the cars history were promised but never delivered. I never saw the car in person so you are beyond where I got. supposedly they had contact with former owner but never would get back to me. the car started out asking over $30 k(32 I think).... im new here but I don’t think you will find a big block car in as good a shape as this one ( in spite of its faults) for tremendously less money than they are currently asking. they dropped the price ALOT from where they started . i also don’t think they paid 10 to 15 k.. I think they have more into it than that.. I may be wrong.. but it’s my gut feeling based on my conversations with them and a whole lotta looking at sales figures on these cars.... if you like it.. go for it.. make an offer.. if they dont go for it you can negotiate up. very few cars are going to turn out to be as good as they sounded in the ad and pictures... I’ve learned that the hard way. good luck mike
  12. Thanks..!, thats exactly the issue.. its stuck..I don’t want to damage the trim lifting it off the pillar ill be bolder mike
  13. I’m sure I’m being a weeny.. but i removed the two screws holding the pillars along side front window. how do I remove the pillar to paint them? mike
