Brand New Starter:

By Pretender

Filed under: 1979 Pontiac Trans-Am (Sherri)

Sherri's starter keeps going out. Fourth one since 2000. So I decided to buy another starter, only this time have it beefed up inside. So I purchased a New Heavy Duty starter on February 18, 2014 and had Joey Speed in Hudson install it. Purchased a Proform Hi-Torque starter for Pontiac & Olds. engines first - but it did not fit properly. Kept tweaking and hitting oil pan. (Part no. 66257 @ Performance Center Port Richey, Fl.).

Rebuilding the 403

I have currently begun taking apart the Oldsmobile 403 engine so I can take out to rebuild. Do not worry... I will make sure to put Sherri on life-support system while her engine is sitting in the garage to the side. While I was hauling *%# on I-75 toward Ocala I believe she threw a rod. I immediately got sick to my stomach, pulled over and hurled. But do not worry for Sherri, she will be back on her four aggressive steel belted radial's in no time.
