The Lounge / Re: Any good Holley Carburetor rebuiders on here?
« on: February 05, 2020, 08:52:30 PM »
I was told that Joe Bunetic is one of the best at rebuilding Holley carbs.  I believe he is in the Chicago area,

Hagerty published this article on Sunday with their views of the auctions last week.  Nothing Shelby specific but an interesting read.  Fewer  big money cars, very nice cars brought strong money, average cars brought less $$ on average...    That was pretty much my observation as well after being at BJ for a couple of days.  One interesting observation for me was how well the restomod late 50's / early to mid 60's vets did bringing in some of the best $$ and they seemed to be very nicely done cars.  Great place for people and car watching.  Probably the most fun I had was doing the Performance Ford Ride and Drive.  They were beating the Shelbys to death non stop all day long.

My car was built at San Jose mid March 66 and I was told by knowledgeable people on this forum that any date from fall of '65 through February 66 would be feasible for my carb.  If your car was built in mid to late April, I assume a carb dated anywhere from later in '65 through to March 66 would be feasible.  Others may want to chime if they have different views.

Happy to help.  I live just north of Toronto.  Pretty unusual for someone up here not wanting to ship south.  John

I signed up to run a few cars at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac Michigan through Extreme Experiences on May 21.  Two of the three cars I chose are these two so it should be interesting to run each for three laps to see how they compare.  Should be fun.  I've never done one of these multi car track experiences before.

Not sure if it was a survey or just a listing of known valve cover types by 66 GT 350 car number.  I recall contributing my info to it and not sure but I think it was Jeff Speegle who owned the list.

Fred and I exchanged emails yesterday to confirm he received my fuel pump.  He was part of the mandatory evacuation last weekend and only got back into his house yesterday.  There were houses burnt as close as 3 blocks away from his.  The complete story he recounted was a lot longer and pretty incredible.  He is safe and very lucky !

Just sent my 4201S to Fred today for restoration.  Can't wait to get it back given the stellar reputation he has.

Another post about oil pressure extensions made me think of another question.  I've seen hex shaped oil pressure extensions like the one on my 66 GT 350 made from both steel (most that I've seen) and aluminum.  Are aluminum extensions correct for any 65-70 Shelby or Mustang SB or BB applications, or were the originals all steel, or ?

Received mine via polar bear express to just north or Toronto today.  Perfect condition and the info on my car is correct this time.  Yeah !!  Thanks to all who took the time to put this together. 

Curiosity got the better of me so I had to have a look.  6S1575 is mid March Ford production date, T-10 main housing date is C 162 or March 1, 66 and tail housing is K 15 65 or November 15, 65.  Both cast iron.
