Hey JD - thanks for all your help. Yes that last item you posted from NPD will do the trick for me. Going to place an order for the two fitting and steel line from them. You Rock and Thanks again!

verified the line at NPD is correct for a 67 350

Its Classic Tube part number MUO1002-SC

Link to Classic Tube:

Link to same part number sold by NPD:

So I just need the one fitting with the W on it. I don't necessarily need to have the W on it, but I would like to find that part so it looks reasonable correct and most important (to me) is that it (meaning the car) is working properly.

Thanks JD. By the way, my car is a 4 speed (forgot to mention that) as I think the connection/routing may be different between a manual trans vs automatic trans.

If you find those links that would be great.
 
thanks again!

Hey Gents - need to ask you another technical question. This time on the vacuum line that runs between the power brake booster and (I believe) to the back of the (Cobra) intake manifold.

I need to know what is correct and what the vacuum line consists of.

On one end, I know there is a rubber line that connects to the check valve on the booster, but what does the other end of the rubber line connect to?

Does the rubber hose connect directly to a fitting that is screwed into the Cobra intake? or does it connect to a steel tube which then is supposed to connect (somehow) to the Cobra intake?  I pasted a link below of the tube in question (which is for a 67-68 small block Mustang), but I assume this is not needed on a Shelby due to the alum Cobra intake?  A pic would be worth a thousand words.

Thanks in Advance!

Thanks Doug - I will do some research on 10" pressure plate ratings (I do realize the springs are what makes of the pressure and not the diameter, but just was thinking since a 10" was used in the regular 289 that it would not need to have a higher pressure rating as a hipo one which may be larger, but not sure). Thanks again for your help.

Thanks ShelbyDoug.

My plan is to keep the pressure plate stock as long as I can find one. I am not going to put in anything where its going to twist up the equalizer arm as I am just doing a one for one replacement.

I do have experience in other cars going to high perf pressure plates and I know what you mean. Next thing you know, after the equalizer arm reinforcement comes the firewall and under cowl area. It never ends when you start modifying.

Thanks again for the help

Did you miss the point? The stock 2,600 pound clutch ONLY existed off of the production line. All replacements START at 2,800, which in my case I found even that bent the equalizer.

You need to find your own way. I'm just trying to save you some major pain and disappointments. Happy Trails.  ;D

I did miss it at first but reposted (post #10) asking if you think I might find a 2600lb one in 10" size? Do you know the original clutch size? Maybe someone downsized mine as mine is 10" - probably the lo-po version LOL.

That darn eq arm is a mystery....what would be the difference between the regular small block and a hipo, is it just that it is stronger? My GT350 was a manual and I put it back to auto, in looking at my bar, it appears to have metal welded to it, if that the difference?

BTY BOSSSSSSS, that is my NY Plate!

Now that is interesting because I ran that NY plate for many years in the 80's. I still have those old plates too. I live in the Binghamton area. Where are you located?

Mine has the MAX of 8 characters.
I had that EXACT plate in the 80's max characters in in NY LOL - I let it expire many years ago. You may have seen it at one of the shows? I did a lot of shows in the 80s and early 90's in NY.

Hi ShelbyDoug - where the factory clutches 10" or a different size? The equalizer arm in there now looks like it has been beefed up and the car only has a 10" clutch. I will probably just stick with the 10" clutch size and find new replacement disc and pressure plate. Maybe I can find a pressure plate in the 2600 lb weight in a 10" size?

Also want to know what size clutch the 67 289 HiPo used. Was it 10" or 10.4" or 10.5" or ? 

This car actually has a 66 K code HiPo in it along with the 4 speed out of the same 66 K code fastback (so they are matched). PO installed a 10" clutch (as I measured it late last night after getting it removed).

Thanks Greg. I have not yet taken the arm down. I will do that shortly. Just pulled the transmission late last night.
I am not sure of what equalizer arm that is in there. It could be a regular 289 equalizer arm. The car is a real Shelby but it had a very hard life and a lot of things were changed many times over the years and was raced, so I doubt the equalizer arm is a K code version. I am not even sure of what a K code version looks like to compare it. I see NPD sells K code equalizers arms for 67 K codes , but they do not show a picture of it. I will do some more digging.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Mark

Hi Gents,
I am doing a clutch job on a 67 350 and want to replace the equalizer arm as the pivot holes are all hogged out. Car has a 289 K code HiPo in it and I see where the equalizer arm is unique to the k code vs a regular 289.

The car has Tri-Y headers on it.

Is the equalizer arm for the K code differently shaped to clear the original K code exhaust manifolds (which I know were differently shaped compared to the non-K code exhaust manifolds)?

Can I just buy a new non-K code equalizer bar since this car is running Tri-Y's?   

TIA
