So, I was all excited to put those Rallys on the car this weekend. I got a new 2 ton jack and some jack stands and popped the hubcaps off only to discover this on both back wheels:
Yeah. And I don't have the key. Luckily, I was able to find the correct one online- but I'll have to buy the entire wheel lock set just so I can have a key- only about $25.
I know I could probably get this thing off by tapping on a socket and using a breaker bar... but I don't want to ruin the lock or messing with my bearings if I don't have to.
As promised, here are some pictures of the fuel tank intake- you can see what I mean about it being mangled and not taking a gas cap. Not safe at all. Replacing the fuel tank is the first item on my list.

|"What the #@$%!? Oh man!"|
I really think it's because someone pried off a lock cap.
Here are some undercarriage pictures of the tank:
On the opposite end of the fuel system is the vapor canister. I am going to replace the filter on that.
I wanted to also show the carburetor- it's a Rochester GV 2bbl, which came standard with the Pontiac 350. You can see the serial numbers too:
|Definitely needs a carb kit. Definitely.|
|I actually came across a website that explains what all these numbers mean- I'll have to dig it up and post it!|
Alrighty, more coming soon... and wish me luck with that wheel lock!!!
