never post emails , you will now get 10,000 spam a day, wow.
sorry !
it can be easy or hard, but in general its:
just the barrel tumbler, ?, that is locked on back side on purpose.
pull battery neg lug. (no fires please) or blown main fuses.
defeat air bags , via method stated in FSM. (DANGER big time)
1: remove covers from switch section, there, screws below.
2: remove headless antitamper screws on ignition switch clamp
3: the whole assemby is free.
4: on 1/2 the cars the steering wheel needs to be remove, painfull that.
disconnect its connector now or at step 1.5.

the tumbler pin is on back side, ask any lock smith to fix this.
he has the special tools needed.

I own a E1800 van. I have problems with acceleration or power to climb hills or steep driveways. Pls assist.

Check the throttle cable is pulling the throttle all the way open....if okay....

Possible blocked exhaust system...usually the catalytic converter. Remove the Oxygen Sensor and road test....if quicker, you found the problem.

...or go to a shop and ask fro a back pressure test. They will install a probe and gauge in the exhaust and run engine at 2000 to 2500 rpm and briefly to WOT.

Any reading over 2 psi indicates a partially blocked muffler system.

I can't find starter pls help me

It is at the back of the engine, where it attaches to the bellhousing (transmission). It is at the bottom of the block, just above the oil pan, usually on the right-hand side of the car (between the right front wheel and the firewall). You need to be under the car to see it, it is a round metal can about four inches in diameter and about 8 to 12 inches long. There is one big (battery cable) wire attached to it, and there may be one or two smaller wires as well.
Disconnect the battery ground cable before you attempt to remove the starter, as the big cable usually goes directly to the positive battery terminal, and is live even when the engine is off.

Im chasing new bolts to reconnect my manifold to the block/engine. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

if it is a l20b engine it is about a m7 or m8 or m10 with a 12mm head about 28mm long or longer with a lock washer and the big washer that holds the exhaust and intake be careful the head is aluminum so it wont handle a heavy torquing

Online wireing digram


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

I have very limited exposure to 427s since they are not that readily available in my country. At most that I have worked on (longtime before) are the rat motors with dual (2 barrel) carbs and uses conventional (then) contact points which if you are using, I could very well prepare a wiring diagram. If however, you have a highly modified later day version with EFIs and multi sensor, then I am afraid I would be at a lost and would be of no help to you.

I have taken the liberty of asking the assistance of other members of the community to assist you further if not better.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Engine shudders at 35-40.


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

, what comes to mind is probable faulty universal joints (U-joint), actually two of them and/or missing retainer clips. They would be coupling the transmission to the propeller shaft and then to the differential. The power train is nearly perfectly balance system and any missing needle bearing on any of the four ends of the U-joint wold cause a slight wobble on a particular speed. To check, the vehicle must be lifted and the propeller shaft yanked. There must be no noticeable play or slack.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
