  1. I just wanted to THANK everyone for the advice and support. I had a 1978 Monte during college but this is my first "FirstGen" Monte. Learning as I go. Its not perfect but I am trying to make it as well as I can!! Entered two car shows and took home "Best In Class" trophies each time. So that has been fun and worth while. Thanks again and I'm sure I will be reaching out for more of your knowledge!!
  2. I will put in a request for time off. I will also need to find the light bulbs and hopefully get the correct ones.
  3. Hello again James, Would February 19th (Friday) be a possibility? If so, I can request that day off and come over if it is not raining. Let me know and I’ll request the day off. Thank you
  4. James, I really appreciate your kind offer. I too am excited for the Super Bowl and being a Bucs fan. Let’s plan after the Super Bowl. I do work M-F but I maybe able to take a weekday off or we can plan a weekend day. I want to work around what is good for you. Perhaps I should pull the trigger and order a new quarts clock and know it will be a one time thing. Thank you again and I’ll will be in touch. Hope you have a great week!! Jeff
  5. Wow James, Thank you for the generous offer of help. I may just take you up on your offer!! Perhaps we can coordinate a day to make that happen. Would it be smarter to buy a new clock or do they come back to life pretty easy?
  6. Thank James for your detailed description of the process. I also would love to have a working clock again. Is that something that could also be changed with this process? Photos would be very helpful if you have some to share!! Thanks again for your time and advice.
  7. Hello all, Most of my dashboard instrument lights are so faded I can hardly see anything at night without cranking up the light switch till just before the dome light comes on. My question is, does the whole dash need to come out of the car in order to replace bulbs? Thank you!

  9. I did replace the original oil pan with an aftermarket. Since then the gasket has been changed twice thinking that maybe the cause. Did not help. Cleaning up the original pan and going to put it back on to see if that helps.
  10. I also had the intake manifold gasket replaced.
  11. Thank you for your suggestions. The plug near the fuel pump is intake. I will double check the two bolts you are referring to. I will also double check the value cover bolts but no evidence of leaking seems to be coming from them or upper side. Seems to be focused on the bottom passenger side and the multiple puddles also seem appears after I drive which I believe the air is shooting oil all over. Again, no one place that seems to be the place of origin. Very frustrating!!
  12. Hello fellow club members. My 1972 Custom 454 Big Block leaks oil. A lot... The rear main seal has been replaced. The seal for the harmonic balancer was replaced. New gasket for the oil pan and valve covers. New seal and fuel pump replaced. Having to add about a quart or more after sitting for a week. I have been using NAPA High Mileage SAE 20W-50 non synthetic oil since it is the original motor. The oil leaks seem to be mainly dripping from the front but I am assuming oil is shooting all over as I am driving because of all the various areas. The passenger side seems to be the main
