    1999 Lumina 9C3 L67 swap thread...

    OK , now on to the Transmission, I needed the L36 out of the car so i can use the rotating assy from the 4T65E to go in the Grans Prix case that i already had cleaned up and read to build, I ordered a Master kit from Rock auto specced for the 65e-hd, doesnt really matter, but I just ordered it for what i was building, and got set to start tearing into the trans. I think It might have Termites... got it all apart, everything looked good, Almost all the clutches still have the ink labling, 4th gear clutches where decent, but the steels showed some slippage as they had some burn marks. Everything all stacked in the order they came out. Its not my first trans build, I've been doing this kinda shit for over 20 years so I do things a little different from first time builders. I have a cheap piston compressor I got off amazon works good for 90% of my builds, but sometime i get into a deep drum like this and I need to improvise cause the threaded rod isnt long enough. got all the seals replaced and noticed on the side of the drum it was weighted I doubled checked the drum from the GTP trans and it didnt have a weight on it, I have no idea if this was a normal thing, or if GM took the time to balance these parts because they where going in the police cars . others may know, These are the first 4T65's I have done. started reassembling Sure was nice having the bell housing bolted to the tabletop . Spag was in there just to turn the assy in the trans to line stuff up . and new the Hard work is done, I went with the stock GTP drive and driven sprockets instead of the Luminas 35-35 sprockets one cause I will be using the GTP ECM for now and 2 I'd like to maintain some form of gas mileage. I did run across a problem with the PA Cargo kit It was a good kit, and a Master kit with everything, but the input clutches where for a 2003 and up 4T65 with the 30 spline clutches, 2002-97 had 32 splines, so im not sure if their thinking people are going to upgrade to a newer diode type sprag from the newer transmissions or what, I tried contacting them about the mix up. but the guy I was chatting with kept asking me for the kit number and application after I had given him the info in the first message i sent him, so I basically got nowhere , I was able to use my old clutches because they where the exact same thickness as the new ones. and just used the new steels. so if you are looking for a master kit, be aware and find someone elses kit. Also I bought a new Hardened 4 gear input shaft and a new Hardened pump shaft fo go in this, even with only 121k on these parts the splines on the ones in the lumina where almost at the point of stripping. Stock chain had plenty of life left. It was well within the 1/4 of an inch clearance to any part of the case GM specs. so thats it for now, Im also using a Transgo shift correction kit, in the valve body and servos , so Ill be working on that next.

    What Size Fastener For Washer Fluid Bottle?

    Thanks for the help everyone. I had removed and lost those two front fasteners many years ago. Shows how bad my memory is, I would have sworn I was missing two bolts. Went to the hardware store and got a couple of the push pins that jiggity76 an d55trucker mentioned. All set now. I did have the side bolt, maybe that is why I thought the other fasteners were bolts, too.

    '95 LQ1 - Best way to view real time engine data

    this forum doesnt seem to have alot of traffic, Try posting over at Gearhead EFI http://www.gearhead-efi.com/Fuel-Injection/forum.php they will set you straight, i had a box I plugged into my 92 camaro so i could data log with it , I cant think of who made it, but you could connect your phone through bluetooth, or you could use a older serial cable if you have a old laptop that had one, it did pretty good . I got the info and link for it off that forum. Lotta good guys and plenty of traffic over there. Hell I would sell you my box , I sold my camaro and dont have a use for it. I'll get the info here in a bit.

    Rear convertible window weather stripping

    I see that the Camaro weather strips are specific to the driver and passenger doors. Your one post stated that you cut off from the pillar edge while leaving the back of the original end. I assume that means that it is important to purchase the Camaro drivers side for the Olds driver side and the same for the passenger side applications. Am I correct? Also, is there a quality difference between Camaro Central and 1A Auto? Thanks, Jonathan Camaro Central (pair) $69.95 1A Auto (pair) $99.95 1A Auto (individual sides) $64.95

    Nope, either we get the door jamb sticker or pay PHS/GM heritage $50-150 for the date and I don't think either have the date ASC built the car, just the factory month/year.

    Strange PS Pump Noises

    Replacements are fairly cheap to get you by, TurnOne Steering will rebuild your pump if you`re wantng to keep it original. Probably cheaper than OE if you can still find them.

    fuel pressure regulator

    I take it the engine is the LQ1?.......pre 94 or post 93........makes a difference, post 93 has no map sensor, just the vacuum port for the FPR & trans modulator generally pressure at the rail when running at idle is just above 40lbs., it would seem that you're in the ballpark, when the FPR goes it usually is the diaphragm that tears, little pressure & the plenum will suck the fuel in thru the map port. Without removing the plenum one can remove the rubber hose for the fpr at the map & you will instantly get fuel odour, now are the rubber hoses at either end of that tube that feeds the FPR are not rotten & leaking vacuum? If the internal spring goes the fuel rail goes lean but there is no leakage into the plenum. Engine running/wide open throttle/low vacuum/full spring pressure/max fuel pressure. Engine at idle/full vacuum/vacuum pulls on the diaphragm against the internal spring to lower fuel pressure. If you have a vacuum pump/gauge on hand test the FPR for vacuum at the MAP port, if you can't pull anything then either the tubing is leaking or the FPR has failed. Normal vacuum at engine idle is approx 16-17 inches vacuum. The only way to test the FPR itself is with the plenum removed. There are 2 ports at the MAP..... 1 is the FPR feed & the other is the vacuum for the trans modulator, if either are leaking engine idle will be upset.

    Yes. Thanks. If your buddy goes back before the car is crushed: Please ask him to snap a photo of the build date on the driver's door jamb sticker if it's still there.

    Man you guys are carving out a little piece of automotive history here. How many do you guys think are still out there? I shouldn`t want another 30+ year old Pontiac, especially one they dont make parts for but I`d really like to save one of these one day. I hate seeing an unwrecked car go to the JY.

    '95 CS convertible fails to upshift in turns

    I took the 'vert out for a sunset run this evening and it's never run better. Shifting is so smooth, I can hardly feel it, even though I can hear it and see the evidence of it on the tachometer. Even though I didn't replace the vacuum line to the modulator—it still has the original hard line—I must have gotten it seated better than it had been when I buttoned things back up after this afternoon's aborted attempt to replace it. At this point, I'm quite content to let things ride, no pun intended.

    '95 CS convertible fails to upshift in turns

    As your attorney I would advise you to replace the vacuum hose to the modulator as well, maybe even give that a shot before replacing the component. You might try adding some heat to the area around that bolt to get it to loosen up too, or a 6ft piece of metal pipe around your wrench. Sometimes you can use an additional combo wrench of a similar size to use as a breaker bar as well, old mechanic trick thats hands down guaranteed to either bust the bolt/nut loose or bust your knuckle against something hard. Or punch yourself in the face, I`ll never forget when I did that to myself. I was so pissed off and had no one to hit back. Still looking for that 3/4 combo in the woods too.

    Hey @mfewtrail, I remember you saying you needed to run a bunch of cars for the options, I discovered this site to do so for free. http://www.free-vin-decoder.com and it works too. You can run about 50, then it tells you you've run too many but with a VPN or proxy, you should be able to keep going. Beats paying Compnine.

    So I was reminded on Facebook of this photo of my Cutlass from 2 years ago today... just to show how far It really has come in those 2 years... to give you an idea, I was standing in almost the same spot in the 2nd photo I added to the initial post.
