I have owned my 68 KR conv. w/4 speed for over 20 years.  I have seen different sales numbers like 518,318 etc.  Does anyone know how many were sold?

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / KR steering column rebuilder
« on: June 04, 2020, 05:40:20 PM »
My steering column shakes when I pass over a small bump in the road and I am looking for a quality
shop to rebuild the column.

I have done all the easy stuff like new wheels & radial tires, balancing & alignment, balanced drive shaft, rebuilt steering box, new front springs and I'm out of ideas.  I have owned the car for over 20 years and have taken it to two shops, one a shelby restorer but without a solution.

Thanks.

I have swapped tires and wheels from a 67 GT500 that had no vibration.  I notice the vibration mostly when the road is bumpy or uneven.  I do not feel vibration on the interstate unless there is a bump or pothole.

Thanks for the help.  I have owned the KR for 25 yrs and the steering wheel has vibrated for years.  I thought it was wheel balance but new tires and balancing along with drive shaft balancing and steering box rebuild has not helped so I thought it may be in the steering column.

Anyone know of a source for rebuilding the steering column?  Can I remove it without removing the engine?

Thanks.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 GT500 breaker points
« on: April 26, 2019, 08:59:49 AM »
I'm adjusting the distributor points on my 67 GT500 and seem to remember that .20 is the gap.  Is that correct?

Thanks,

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 67 gt500 idle settings
« on: April 15, 2019, 12:25:28 PM »
Doug,

Thanks for your advise.  I assume the choke idle screw is  the one under the carb.  Should I adjust them on both carbs?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 gt500 idle settings
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:07:23 AM »
I have the original holly 600's and the hot idle is 1000 rpm but cold idle is too low and I want to adjust them higher by turning the screw under the carb counterclockwise but want to know if I should increase both carbs or just one and, if so, which one.

Thanks for the advise.

« on: February 20, 2019, 03:43:53 PM »
Thanks for all of the help with the power steering hoses.  I finally did get the clamp oriented properly and things are looking better now.  I also have concourse
short hoses but haven't installed them yet.
