79 E Wheel Bearings

In 2015 I spent 2 solid months getting the 79 E car back on the road, a decade after I brought it to the new place. Made all those nearby natl meets that summer. At 70,000 miles I had been doing my best to keep new grease in the 4 wheel bearings. But the left rear went out, and I got a replacement. ...

Re: 69 Toronado Quadrajet Secondaries Not Opening

I have bought more than one car, where the secondaries were just stuck shut
because the previous owner never pushed it hard enough to exercise the
secondaries. A little juice and manual exercise fixed that, never happens
again while I own a car.
good luck, Bruce Roe

Accelerator Pedal 66

Perhaps 66-70 are a direct bolt in. The difference is that 68 up has a standard
GM 1242101 electric kickdown switch mounted on it. Using that with a switch
pitch controller allows getting rid of that mechanical mess above the engine,
while gaining better response. good luck, Bruce Roe

newbie needs 79 mounts

Ok I decided to check, the same source lists transmission mounts, they give the same part numbers for 79 and 85. They are not in fact the same, the picture looks like the 82-85 version. This does not inspire confidence that the fronts are right. Oh well, after I found the needed front bracket here, ...

newbie needs 79 mounts

Today I see, I have 2 sets of those 79-81 Toro SBO front engine mounts on
my shelf (3rd in my car). It would not be hard to get one set away from me.
The rubber cushion at the bottom is still required. No rear trans mounts I think.

Re: WANTED - NEW or USED factory style Exhaust Manifolds

Those are unique exhaust manifolds used in 66-76 big block Toronado to fit around the frame, transmission, and oil filter. Possibly 77-78 Toronado would fit but it was a small block. There are some headers but they take a lot of space and give off a lot of heat. The GMC people might have some ideas....
