So I have decided to try and document my rebuild. I bought a running car (see https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/look-what-i-found-on-the-side-of-the-road.1197477/ ). When I bought the car my original intent was just to ad a T-5 tranny and probably hydraulic brakes. So with that thought in mind I started looking for a T-5 and soon found a 1998 S-10 complete running cab and chassis. Meanwhile back at the farm we have been unable to to get the A banger running properly. My buddy say to me you have a good motor, tranny and rear end sitting there so piter pater lets get ater. Progress so far is the A frame rails are clear front to back, I do not want to remove the body from the frame. The S-10 has given up its power train. I have purchased a dropped tube axle with chevy spindles and GM 11 inch rotors and brakes. I have a bunch of parts from Speedway sitting in a warehouse in Detroit hoping I can get it into Canada soon ...... they expect the boarder to be closed for at least another 30 days. Today I did 8 hours of the work that they never show on TV or you tube. Power washed motor and trans. Wire brushed 20 years of crude off the rear axel housing. Power washed the rear end. Removed the oil pan from the engine and cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. Removed the valve cover and cleaned. The good news is virtually no sludge inside the motor and pan. Plugs look excellent. And now for the QUESTIONS. The plan is no throttle body, injectors, crank triggered coil pack, and computer, but rather a small carburetor and distributor. Can anyone point me towards an intake manifold?? I believe that an early Cavalier has a distributor driven off the oil pump drive, anyone have any experience doing this. Another thought is to belt drive the distributor off the front pulley.
