1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: This is my new office

This is something so few will ever experience. It is stunningly beautiful to me no matter how many times I see it.
Actually looks like you are heading into the Mutara Nebula.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 110 Octane Sunoco ?

I do what you do. VP or Sunoco. 110 with 93 or straight 110.  It runs like a different car on the race fuel and the slightly rich idle from the dual quads doesn't bother you. I also noticed the fuel percolation issues went away with the race fuel.

Okay, I will. What "internally" is different on the aluminum York compressor?

As for CA there was a "dealer temporary" issued. It was taped in the rear window or the front window left side until the state issued plates were issued by the state and mailed to the registered owner.

The GT500 uses the C1AE-A for non-AC applications. Remember, GT500's are dual alternator belt driven. The A/C cars use a single belt to drive the alternator. The C5AE-A is correct for A/C cars.  I have a build sheet for an A/C car. So I will dig it out and take a look at it.
I know for fact the A/C crank pulley is what is pictured and listed.
Remember, you wanted something that was "correct in appearance"  The power steering pulley is going to set you back 500.00. It's a very expensive endeavor. I just got in about 10 minutes ago. I four days off this cycle. I should be able to put the list together for you or brackets and pulleys.

Not one of them is correct for AC. Do you have the C6AE-6316 428 PI damper?

Doug: Did you check your voltage regulator? I had one reading 7.5V. Fuel gauge and the temperature gauge also read high, even thought it wasn't hot.

I am adding A/C to my Shelby. I hunted down all the factory components. You seem to be going to a lot of trouble to make it look as factory. You would be wasting your time once you bought one of the "kits" out there because it will all be for moot.
The dash center vent isn't reproduced. There is a poor quality plastic center vent unit that doesn't match the dash. You also need a different array of pulleys and mounting brackets. All the underhood A/C parts are reproduced with the exception of the vacuum tree for the manifold, and the original type heater valve, brackets for the compressor, both idlers and the crank pulley.
If you're building with a particular goal in mind you need a well laid out plan. You don't want to do this one as an afterthought.  It's a relatively involved job that requires a lot of forethought and a bit of capital. It's not a cheap project and will cost well over the aftermarket kit by the time you restore the components you dig up. The only reason I went to the extremes I did is because I have a real car, and If I'm going to make a change of that significance I wanted it to look as if It came that way.
Just some advice from someone who is actually doing what you're asking about, not just throwing their two cents in.

The good ol' boys club has all but destroyed the SAAC. You are hostile, arrogant and venomous, and are here simply to serve your own interest and profiteer.
As for you that were gentlemen and always willing to assist, I thank you. 
In case you haven't turned a blind eye the SAAC is near imploding. Its members are either dying, dead or have lost interest. You run off the new blood by attacking them when they want to build a tribute. A tragic tale indeed.
The attacks on those who were trying to create a dream because they lacked the deep pockets it requires now and were attacked openly by the bitter old men here.
Have you forgotten what was intended here? It's gone.  YOU killed it. The SAAC has outlived its usefulness under the current administration.
I was fortunate, as many of you were to buy before they priced all but the wealthy out of ownership. I have for some time sent parts, pictures, and information to those who were honest about their quest because of the treatment I observed.  I know the cowards will remove my post before many read it.
You have stripped the pride and joy out of ownership.

It doesn't vet the morons and it puts society at risk. Not to mention the fact illegal immigration has caused a rise in insurance four-fold in 10 years. 
As usual, we are forced to pay for others.  If you aren't vetted and you break the law to enter you should be immediately deported and forced into the back of the line for consideration.
