As I've rambled about in other threads, I've had some issues with the 287 I swapped into my 56 Pontiac, so I found a nice '60 389 that I'm rebuilding now. Since I've had the engine out, I've noticed some warning signs on the hydromatic (it's stuck in gear for one thing). It has 80-something thousand miles on it, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I've been dreaming of a manual transmission ever since I bought the car, so I would love to swap in a 4 speed. I know will need a 58-60 Pontiac bellhousing, or a 58-59 GMC one for starters......I saw everything I need for sale in the classifieds by carryallman, but I don't think he's noticing the PMs. Does anybody happen to know him personally by some miracle? Thank you!
