Replicas and Tribute / Re: Stewart Warner 240A fuel pump

I have an original Friedman photo of the 240A pump installation on 002, I will post it when I get to my computer. The installation shows one 240A pump mounted close to the rear axle on the drivers side with the LR wheel removed.
The typical installation was using the Carter mechanical fuel pump drawing through the 240A, the 240A being utilized only when the fuel level in the tank was low causing weaker gravitational forces to slow down fuel supply to the mechanical pump. This was also the way it was utilized on the ďlong rangeĒ fuel tanks on the team 289 Cobras, plumbed into the reserve side of the fuel tank. If the fuel pressure got low enough to switch to the reserve side the  240A pump was activated long enough to build normal pressure on the gauge and then the 240A was shut off. Basically the 240A was used as a booster pump for the mechanical pump when needed.

As far as I know there are only two CR6ZZ dealers in North America, Roger Kraus on the west coast and SASCO Motorsports on the east coast.

CSX 2000 Series / Re: 260/289 Cobra shoulder belt reels??
« on: September 26, 2019, 06:16:44 PM »
I was just going to post that, Ned. Thank you for taking the time to look. Iíll have to see if I can find the other chassis numbers. It would logical that Impact supplied the assemblies seeing how Impact supplied the lap belts. Now Iíll have to see if I can find a photo of what it looked like? Were shoulder belts provided in GT350R models?

CSX 2000 Series / 260/289 Cobra shoulder belt reels??
« on: September 25, 2019, 07:11:28 PM »
Does anyone have a clue??
There were at least two small block Cobras that received shoulder belt reels as optional equipment, expensive at that, does anyone have a photo of the reel assemblies or know where the reels were sourced from? Thanking you in advance.

I think it was a fly fishing trip, imagine if just one bidder had raised their paddle during any of the $10M advances! To advance the bidding that many time and have as many people of the auction house all on the same page just seems to choreographed. 

I still think that the material used to make the part is a dead giveaway when it comes to identifying an original part vs the reproduction.
