Re: Wagon Rear Bumper Fillers?

I know it's been a few years, Scott. I came across this old thread and was wondering how you made out with your wagon redo. Hope you're still around and enjoying your ride. I repainted mine a few years back. I'll see if I can post a few pics. If you see this post and want to say "HI", that would be...

Re: Malibu El camino front air dam questions.

Well, I fired up my old computer that has the GM Parts Catalog on it and the program won't run. I tried reinstalling it several times and it just won't open. I'll have to have my cousin look at it. He knows a lot more about computers than I do.

Re: What did U do to your G-body today??

I didn't really do anything "to" the Malibu, I got a delivery today of correct NOS wheel well trim screws and labelled the package and put it with the rest of my "for later" parts.

Re: Malibu El camino front air dam questions.

I have both my OEM 1980 that came on my car and another that I got from a member a long time ago that is probably about 3 or 4" wider. IIRC, he said it came from a Pontiac or Olds. The next time I look through my illustrated parts books, I'll see if I can find out part numbers to see if I find diffe...

Re: What did U do to your G-body today??

Doober, Madge is still a "Driveway Eliminator". Things have been slim for us. I lost my job a year ago last June, then lost the new job last July. Normally I do a Holiday Club with my bank and it's my total car budget for the year, but this year it might just go to pay bills.

Re: Need help with radiator hose

This thread prompted me to do a little research, so I broke out my GM Illustrated Parts Catalogs, started digging and running part numbers online. AFAIK, all SBC and BBC have the same thermostat hosing and water pump inlet sizes. The water pump inlet is 1-3/4". The thermostat housing is 1-1/2". In 1...

Re: How to tell negative and positive sides of brake switch.

It shouldn't make a difference. The switch is not polarized.

Re: What did U do to your G-body today??

I didn't really work on the car itself. I measured the water pump, thermostat housing and radiator inlets and outlets to do radiator hose research. Seems GM switched the radiator inlet size in 1980 from 1-1/2" to 1-1/4". It also seems most aftermarket radiators are 1-1/2" inlet and outlet. The resul...

Re: Need help with radiator hose

Guys, I don't get the problem. The stock lower hose is 1-1/2" on the radiator and 1-3/4" on the pump. Any direct fit replacement hose should work.
