That is my car.. yes, not perfect but itís driven regularly and itís a fun car.. one day when the time is right I will fix a few of the mistakes of past owners.. The car is actually a factory White car with black interior.. #486.. Those pics on Instagram donít do the car many favours..

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 control valve leak
« on: January 04, 2021, 03:31:48 PM »
Hi, I tracked the leak from the control valve to the zerk fitting.. Iíve taken the nipple off in the pic.. is this a seal issue ?.. or is there a bigger problem inside the valve ? Kinda strange place for a leak ..

Trying to figure out WTF I'm supposed to do with these metal tabs that I got from the DMV today to go with my recommissioned California black license plate ,I picked the plate up from a vendor on eBay recently and it starts with a U which is correct for a 1967 California plate .It also came with a 67 tag on it ,when  I took it to the DMV they told me to keep the sticker on it,which I kind of like any way but don't want these metal tabs hanging off my plate.

Cut a fridge magnet to the correct shape and stick the new sticker to it.. Place it over the 67 sticker..

Doug, FPA headers do fit with the stock linkage.. I run them on my 67 GT 500 with the factory Z bar..
They do require a couple of small mods.. One is, one pipe runs close to the block skirt.. fixed that with a file.. The other was the bottom of the Z bar, I filed that too as a precaution, as it seemed to run close to one of the pipes..
The biggest issue I hade was the passenger side.. the top bolt from the idler arm touches one pipe..

OK, so the 2 Tach wires are the Red / Green stripe that loops from the ign switch and has a female connector and the Pink / Red has the bullet connector.. This is the one you use to splice into for the 12V feed ?

(just noticed the terminal popped out of the Ign Switch block)

I had a old loom around, so I did a mock up of how or where to splice the new 12 V wire that runs out to the Pertronix.. Splice is done on the red / green stripe wire..
ďThe going thingĒ is this how you did yours ?
