Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

As the issues pile up I am priortizing.

So a new priority is the power-distribution wiring.

I've read the relevant posts and I'll be ready to apply what I've learned as soon as I identify what modifications have been already performed.

To that end I thought I'd show some of the progress and this shows the date code on my alternator-

1100774 55 A

8K28 12 V NEG



and the back looks like this-



and the top looks like this-



so it looks like a stock-front rebuilt with internal regulator.

But it was quickly one-wired and I think I'm gonna redo it. Here's the wiring at the battery, the junction block deleted.

Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

I like that idea!

I already have a couple T5s and bellhousings and much of the swap stuff but I agreed on an auto so I'm stickin' with the TH350 while I line up all the 700R4 swap stuff for next spring. I have a 4L85, too but that's overkill.

I scored an Edelbrock 3CB and it was already clearanced for the HEI so I'll team those up.

Pretty sure of my small nitrous cam choice, too. I've got a NOS kit that will at least mount in the trunk for good measure.

Now, it starts and runs and parks and locks with new keys.

Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

Melted grommet from the burned up connector.
Might be a good idea to replace that switch and the connector.

Had a dimmer switch fail on my pick-up years ago----dark hiway---went to bright lights ---my headlights went out----and a fire started on the floor.

This would be a sample of my luck for that trip to Vegas.

Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

With the loose screw removed that same switch and wiring operate!

There was a new switch and harness connector with the car when I got it, though.

I'll wait a while until I sort out the issues before I finalize wiring.

The previous HEI upgrade will get my attention, too.

I should have my Edelbrock C3B back and the Edelbrock 500 rebuilt but a thorough cleaning is due then they go on.

Under the right-side valve cover the rockers looked to me like they really want a cleaning, too.

I'll go slow and convince that sludge to filter and drain out over the next few oil changes.

Stock oil filters are what I use but I'll swap out three budget ones over the next week to get some of it out before I drain the oil.

My idea is it's everywhere and won't drain out but it needs a slow-removal to get to where it has settled and built up.

If I check my cylinder pressures before I start I can check to see if I pick up any compression.

Those rockers indicate to me how the pistons and rings look, too.
I use a little diesel added to the present oil after it warms up let it idle for a few minutes and drain it hot.

Thanks to sglide- Ralph, for haulin' these four 14 x 6 wheels all the way up from Arizona. My spare is date-coded a 90, so I have a plan for it...the hubcaps are:

four from southern California and

three from Minnesota

off ebay!



I should have the whitewalls on soon...

...I really should scrub the 14 x 6s up first...the hubcaps on Ralph's wheels were like the glass-slipper Cinderella-thing...they fit like no other.

Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

Ken, glad you are happy with the wheels! Your progress looks to be slow, but sure. As I was heading south from Seattle, I stopped in Puyallup and picked up a tilt column for my wagon. It's from an Impala, the same color as my interior with some spray can tan paint on it, and it is already wired for the factory cruise control system that I have for my car.

Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

Getting the wheels is great!

Good for you getting the column!

Slow but sure is true, there's stuff I've finished but haven't posted, too.

I like your wagon and the fact it has so many options.

Looking at the 307 badge lit-up makes me smile.

With my present bolt-on collection of new and dented and used chrome-crap I add-

my set of these were delivered yesterday but I haven't unpacked the box-



...so as soon as I can I'm looking forward to a little fab work on a Brzezinski-style down y-pipe-



to keep a single exhaust.

I've done a my share of exhausts and I'm lookin' forward to this one...just a mild-steel 2 1/2" diameter with a certain length merge collector I guess...

If I run across a cam before I buy my nitrous-grind I might throw the carb, manifold, cam all together for fun without the spray.

...and if I decide on accessory brackets then I might use these, too-



....wooooooohooooo!

Snow tires go on in October up here, though.

Re: 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

Looking good, and I love the 4-dr hardtop look! Wish my wagon was a 4-dr hardtop wagon, but, alas, they were made that way. If I remember correctly, there was a 69 4-dr hardtop wagon that was made by using the center from the 4-dr hardtop; it was in one of the ACES magazines and Chuck had made a comment about it.
