Re: 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo

Does anybody know what is the standard size battery the Trans Am takes? I got mine without a battery.

Universal Joints for 1980 Pontiac Trans Am

Where in South Africa can I buy universal joints for my 1980 Trans Am?
Autozone don't have and even the place in Cape Town who does all my propshafts could not get.

I think it is a common GM U Joint
OD of the bearing is 28.55mm, I presume that is 1 1/8 inch.

Re: 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo

Thanx a million. I saw an American site with custom lettering, but that worked out with shipping to about R2k per set.

So frustrated, still waiting for the correct ring set. Water pump back plate arrived.
Rims are in CPT for cleaning up and making nice again.
Rest of the car are almost ready.

Re: 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo
