Service manuals for canadian Pontiac's?


Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone knows of any solid information on the canadian pontiacs. We have an Oshawa built 72' Lemans with the sbc 350, we've had it since 2014. When we first got it my old man pulled the engine, gave it a good cleaning, paint job and a tune up. Fast forward to 2019, it hasn't had much of anything done since and it needs plenty (Im essentially planning to regasket & seal the engine). As well, a family member pointed out to him and corrected some misrouted vacuum lines and mentioned a line or 2 may be missing. 

My knowledge isn't good enough to straighten it out, so we've picked up some manuals from the internet but they only seem to cover the pontiac 350(and didn't cover much on vacuum lines anyway), not the Chevy 350 . Does anyone know of any good manuals I can look for that'll cover our canadian cars?

 

TL;DR: Looking for a manual that'll cover the canadian built sbc 350 for our 72' Lemans.

Beside inquiring here, I suggest looking for a Canadian Pontiac service manual at flea markets, on Kijiji. I haven't seen the '72 edition, but typically they are a mixture of Pontiac stuff & a bit of Chevrolet stuff from the respective manuals all brought in under one manual. Keep checking Kijiji as they may appear eventually.

Also try inquiring with Ken McGee. He has tons of stuff and is based in Chatham, Ontario. Web site: https://www.kenmcgeeautobooks.com/

I suggest you buy this, its a 1974 but the Orange 350 is identical from 71, 72, 73, 74, 75. 76. I have the book and it deals extensively with the orange engines and will answer all the questions you are asking about. Just Curious, does your engine still have the AIR system intact ? There are vacuum lines attached to that as well as exhaust ports and these things can be troublesome when broken.

 There is another Orange engine supplement in 1973 for 307 and 350 engines you might find as well. Before anyone goes on about no 307 in Pontiacs just remember that yes, the Ventura II had the 307. Also I endorse Cam's suggestion about contacting Ken McGee.
