Did this video help you?

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 . 

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

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

Robert Fields: 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?

glen john: I love that truck.

munch muncher: get some channel art

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 

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.

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

ElderlyIron: Just said it was "bad" when HE bought it.

ElderlyIron: Only when I'm Wackenhut...

heliarche: I can't wait to see Whitey and Blue.Mostly though I'm really looking forward to the process of getting them going again.

kennethrobinson11231: A 1960 will work too. I use to run a 60-389 in my 57 GMC. It had a 4:10 rear and it ran good. I raced a lot of cars back them.

Zionwood: Looks good Jeff. Did the guy tell you why he crushed the valve covers and carb and left the engine upside down? Seems like he never intended to use it again. Hope he gave it to you. Can't wait to see it running. (Don't forget to patch the floors in the cab!)

browncarp: You should put a 637 GMC V8 in that beast backed by an Allison automatic.

Kalkaekie: Enjoy your videos !!!!

John Greer: awesome video can't wait to see more

forgetdogs: Did you try to put oil down in the cylinders?

92jurassic: you in oregon?

James Halsey: u can get a 366 of 427 tall deck and put in the truck they have from engine mounts

wasjunk11: 389 is a fine choice too

Wouter Smit: Hey Jeff, thanx for yet another update on your projects. What kind of truck is it anyway. are they available on the market? or is it a rare find, I love it's size and looks.

STEVE MILLER: he let it set 15 years and you let it a year hmmmmmm makes 16 years am i right lol

vector6977: Mater? Love the grill insert.

ElderlyIron: 58 and 9 are the quad light years. The 250 model is a 1.5 ton. The standard cab models are the 100, 150, 250, 350 and 370. The 450 model begins the bi-fold hood and altered cab. GMC and Chevrolet both used the same process on the bigger trucks, where they used the same dies and parts from 55 though 59. You can't tell a 55 GMC 450 from a 59. There's always custom...

James Eggerth: Pontiac 389 is a powerful engine !!

Mark Lockwood: AW DON"T GIVE UP SO EASILY PART OF ANTIQUEING IS KEEPING THE OLD STUFF LOOKING NEW AND RUNNING THE SAME.

muddymowers: I have a 1985 Chevy blazer that had a stuck 2.8 v6 that my father made a home made breaker bar out of a 2x4 and some flat steel rod that clamped around the bottom engine pulley, I had some pb blaster and marvel mystery oil sitting in there for awhile beforehand, we worked the pulley backs d forth starting from barely a nudge of play to the engine fully being able to turn over by use of the starter

vwdarrin: very cool sir thank you for the vids

wildwelder87: Thanks for the update Jeff, that's gonna be one cool truck when it's finished!

poopdogsays: I've never seen an exhaust removed from the front before! lol. Time for a 5.3 LS, $300 from a junkyard, 300+ hp and she'll move quite well. Or $350 for a cam, $250 for an intake, $200 for a carb, $300 for the MSD 6LS box, 450+hp and that ole girl will boogie! lol

Bradygoodz: Awesome vid jeff! Looking forward to more redneck restorations. Makes me want to start one if my own, I've learned so much from your channel! You sir are a wealth of knowledge

Bostonclassics1: I love your videos!!!!!

Koz Towz: Trash the GM 4.3 as they are known to rattle apart. Offset rod journals with torque yield rod cap nuts, balance shaft (93+ newer)... complete junk.

NateWilson99: I love your sense of humor!

SuperKONR: I hate the tach attack. Love those old trucks where you can climb into the engine compartment lol

samalayork: 05:25 ( hahaha! it's true! no argument 'bout it!)

Yvon Primeau: Cant wait to See it run

Aaron Coates: I guess a detroit diesel is sacrilege

steven earnshaw: no spark plus for 15years

MrLuke23e: should link this video to your newest!!

bigboi1245: Ok jeff I have a question for you did they make a 4 headlight front end for this year truck? I thought I had seen one somewhere but is that a 3/4 ton or a 1 ton?

ElderlyIron: 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...

ElCaminoGuy2005: Glad to see ya finally gettin some work done to old JB cant wait to see what you do next.

planefloat: Yeah man! My dad's '59 Catalina 389/2bbl 4 speed hydro would haul.....lots of torque. Ought to be great for that heavy truck. I think the CR was pretty high and don't forget lead additive gas treatment for the unhardend exhaust valve seats........Art

danial banks: make more videos,love to see what your going to do with that truck!!
