First off let’s just state the obvious this 1967 Pontiac Firebird is absolutely stunning and we LOVE it, unfortunately something bad had happened in the not too distant past that took it out of commission. According the the customer he was cruising it home from an event, and first gear disappeared. Pulling the pan himself he saw debris which is obviously not good so began the process of removing the transmission. That’s where we come in.
Pulling one of these transmissions isn’t a real fun job in the first place, even less fun when you are trying to do it at home on your garage floor with basic hand tools. So he reached out to us, wanted to know if we could/would take on the job and had us come snag it with the rollback. And here we are.
So, get the TH350 Transmission “Turbo 350” removed from behind the Olds 455 sitting under the hood and let’s see just how bad the carnage is and what the plan of attack needs to be. This video isn’t a complete diagnostic teardown how to but it covers most of the major points and failures. Fortunately we have some solutions in mind to get this car back up and running semi quickly.
As you’ll see towards the end of the video and something we’ve touched on many times before, parts availability continues to be a challenge. Even when you order the right thing that may not be exactly what you get. Fortunately we’ve got some great connections with suppliers and vendors so downtime has SO FAR been pretty minimal.
