Throttle cable..

When removing the old cable, make sure that the plastic fitting is kept, this will have to be reused -- the fitting from locar is not suitable for the 81 pedal:



After that the install was pretty uneventful.. Although working in those areas of the car is not necessarily the highlights of this swap, it's done and works great:



Lokar cable used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000COL2VK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Then today, my local drive shaft shop called and my modified shaft is ready. I know nothing about drive shafts but it looks great. It was shortened and both the "things" whatever they are called, were replaced. $180 something.



I recommend the shop if you're in the area: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Drive+Line+Services+of+Jacksonville/@30.3258106,-81.754765,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x88e5b917674fe563:0xf1c8de2fc228fdf8!8m2!3d30.325806!4d-81.752571

With the drive shaft mounted, I fixed the break switch and bolted down some other stuff. Like I said before, I am going to leave the gear indicator switch for now. With this, the car drives!



Neighbors gathered and it was just a great time as I drove around, everything worked perfectly. Tomorrow I'll try to get a booking at an exhaust shop and the front springs need to be cut! The LS1 has half the weight and twice the power. No disrespect to the heroes that keep the old pontiac motors running, I just dont have the skills.

The coming weekend should see some body panels going back on car.

Happy easter boys

Kerry, I think the delay is due to the size of the order. But I guess it's the new reality for now.
I stopped by HD to pick up few small items and they had me exit through the garden center which is at the opposite end of the store.

Just got my delivery! Truck stopped on the road said he wasn't allowed to use my driveway but the order also said the product had to stay dry, just as the sky's let loose and its pouring down with rain! I told him I wouldn't tell if he backed up to my garage, lol. I was surprised that he actually did.
We went to HD the other day they had one entrance with markings at 6' intr. There mustve been about 100  people in the line. We didn't even get out of the truck. Went to Lowes and walked right in. Now the lowes is doing the same. They only let in a few people at a time. That is one reason why I opted for the delivery.

...and if people were told to get in cattle cars to be taken to Virus Protection Camps, most of you would rush to get in line.  Idiots.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you meant "most people" and not "you" are idiots...  But please do us all a favor, if you do catch it (I sincerely hope that you don't) please do not go to the hospital and ask to be treated. Some of us have family that work at the hospitals that either got infected or at a very high risk of getting infected (and bringing it home) helping people with your attitude that can't follow some basic rules.

Normally, I would just brush off any comment made in lieu of me posting my opinion.  In this particular case, please don't mistake what you call "attitude" for not blindly following the rest of society in this worldwide clusterF***.

That is all.

Electrical / Re: 79 TA - PLEASE HELP with Pulse Wiper Motor
« Last post by Grand73Am on Today at 06:34:06 PM »
there are two different pulse wiper switches, with different wiring
i believe the changed occurred mid 1978
i dont know what else changed at this time
maybe the timer module or the wiper motor

First year for pulse in the Firebird/TA was 78. 78-79 are the same. They changed in 80, so 80-81 are the same.

He's already said he's got all 79 matching parts.
