Did this video help you?

cmsracing: The cow's mad, I mean uh....

Gerald Sheppard: What a dope.

paulnewtondodge: Well, my '62 Dodge Dart 318 sat in a CA barn for 45 years, and fired right up last year. I drive it every day. Worth a try at least.

SnapperMan84: so when do you think you will be able to start work on jimmy blue? I would really like to see that truck replace the 69 gmc ( does the 389 have more horse's than a 350?) for the trailer pulling truck. you could put some mud tires on it and take it offroad or use it in the snow.

AMLagonda: This is not a restoration, Im shocked anyone would even think of a open (for 15 years) motor would turn over let alone run.
It should be pulled out stripped down and rebuilt, even the other motor, the 389 should be rebuilt.

Steven Kirby: You need help, where your young go-fers or get-mes.

Paul Walker: has the 389 been grafted into jimmy Blue yet?

L.E. Batte: What's the difference between a 1959 389 and a later model like a 1966 as far as the bolting it up ? From working on my friend's GTOs and Le Mans it would seem that if a 389 would fit so would a 400 or 455 .

glen john: I love that truck.

72Disco1998: Are you on the local VFD saw you had a pager was just wondering. Great videos by the way!

richaroodledoodle: I LOVE GM, but I am sorry,….that front end is one of the worst front ends of all the american trucks.

DestructionGaming: get some channel art

Robert Fields (Tractornuts): It must be a Oregon Hillbilly thing,  Just saying I see a lot of Ideas posted by some folk that just dont get it. But I do, being how I did the samething in Oregon most of my life. Jeff what is the weirest place you ever drug a vehicle out of?

dogbuggy32: I like jimmy he's cool

dxrflyboy: "55-59 Poncho 8's have a different block configuration. The engine mount is at the bottom of the cast iron timing cover. The bell housing has the remaining 2 mounts. In mid 59, the went to the aluminum timing cover and cast the engine mount bosses into the side of the block. Camshafts and distributors interchange, but not much else. 389 was the biggest cube Pontiac made in the older configuration. Gimme cubes..." - Elderlyiron

Pontiac switched from reverse flow cooling to bottom-up cooling in 1960, but from the pics on this website http://www.pontiacsafari.com/EngineCooling/index.htm the cast iron front timing cover with front mount bosses was around a bit longer, albeit for the upflow cooling.  Whether or not this cover will bolt onto later blocks is another issue, but might be worth trying.  Also, the only real difference between the 389 and the later 400 is an extra .060" in the bore.

TheTomz71: Hay Jeff like your videos the one with the goat stuck in fence keep posting you got right ideal

J HNV.: i think that truck needs somethings different... cough cough 6v 53 Detroit diesel 

FoMoCo1: Jeff's a nut ain't he, he's good people.
