If you have to ask this question, perhaps you shouldn't be doing the job, but you certainly shouldn't be doing it alone. It's quite important that brakes be installed properly, and most people learn by watching someone else or having someone tell them how to do it.

The trans ams built in the late 70's used two engine choices an Oldsmobile 403 and the Pontiac 400 it is your understanding that the only way to get the 400 Pontiac engine was to also get the 4 speed?

To get a 400 Pontiac Motor in 1979, you had to also get the 4 speed. Pontiac last manufactured 400 motors in 1978 but saved some from 1978 for use in the 1979 model. Those motors were used in the 1979 4 speed cars only. 1979 Automatics had the Oldsmobile 403. You could also get a turbo version too. All of which could come with auto trans. I worked on many of these at the Pontiac dealer.
