J HNV.: i think that truck needs somethings different... cough cough 6v 53 Detroit
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
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
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
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!!
forgetdogs: Did the previous owner say why he tore the engine down like that and didn't
cover anything back up?
cwk1981: cant wait for the next video
Torque-Lock-Tom: Dude, forget the Pontiac motor! Retro fit a Ferd 460! But, that's just me..
Thomas1233385: Cool man, good luck on the rebuild.
Jan46: i would like to see the damages that engine has inside from sitting open
and even before!
hotlava1967: So glad I watched this. Im diggin on the old iron. My find is a 60 Apache
longbed, converted to 4x4, and I use it as a truck. Thanks for lettin me
