Re: Thru 1975 - Oldsmobile Chassis and Body Parts Catalog

Thanks! Downloaded 'n' saved!

Some pages won't display properly for me. The VIN pages near the beginning seem to be oversize, so that the page ends with some printing deleted.

Re: th425 550hp /600 tq

hey there, found something interesting. seems like those guys did a set of headers for a 1966 toronado: https://www.gbemandrel.com/marman-flanges.html shorty style headers...would that make a big difference compared to stock manifolds? http://toronado.org/forum/download/file.php?id=1441 The upper p...

Or buy a block adapter similar to this one for a Pontiac.

Re: Rsistor Wire

The resistor in a GM is the wire itself. There is no bigass ceramic block like a Chrysler or Ford. A resistor primarily acts to reduce the current) (amperage) flow in a circuit. They only reduce voltage when current is flowing. If the points are open, no current flows, so voltage is not reduced. Whe...

Re: front Brake disc conversion

They want $1200 for the conversion kit. For that much money, I'll buy used parts from a salvage yard, recondition them, and have hundreds left over. I bought an entire parts-car for $300, scalped the discs, engine, transmission, and had the rest hauled away. A '67 or '68 uses the four-piston caliper...

Re: torsion bar

Addco for torsion bars, or for sway bars which are a torsion bar, but not the main springs?

I checked the Addco catalog, they list a rear bar for '67-70 (Not for '66 which I don't understand) and they list a rear bar for '71--78.

No front sway bars, no torsion bars.

Re: Looking for a Remote Oil Filter and External Oil Cooler Setup for the 455

Let me rephrase. I suggest you remove the OEM filter mount. Put it on a shelf, or sell it on eBay. Either 1. Open the block holes using a bit sized for the pipe thread, then tap for the pipe thread-to-37 degree flare hose adapter. You'll want pipe-to-37 adapters in at least -10. Something like this:...

Re: Rsistor Wire

If you have the service manual, it should show the exact cavity in the bulkhead connector you need to deal with. Remove engine-compartment-side bulkhead connector. Pop the original resistor wire out, plug the new wire in. Reconnect bulkhead connector block. There are companies selling the 12-gauge w...

Re: 1966 Toro Fuel Line Diameter and Length

Wild Guess: 10 feet of hose is enough for three cars. Been forever since I've been under mine...but...I'd expect less than a foot of hose up front in the engine compartment, and about the same in the back connecting to the tank. All the rest should be metal tubing. Although I do have half-a-memory o...

Re: Looking for a Remote Oil Filter and External Oil Cooler Setup for the 455

If you remove the aluminum oil filter adapter on the Olds engine, you'll find a pair of drilled holes--one out, one in. All you need to do is attach to the inlet/outlet holes. You can do this with an adapter bolted-on using the OEM gasket and bolt holes, or you could maybe drill the holes a little o...
