Appeals / Any saac forum members living in Canada?
« on: October 10, 2019, 06:43:50 PM »
Hello everyone.
I have a question/problem. I am currently trying to purchase some parts for my vehicle and the parts are in Canada. I was wondering if there was any saac forum members on here living in Canada that maybe able to help or would be willing to help.
The person I am trying to purchase parts from will not ship out of Canada to the USA. So I was wondering if there would be any saac members that maybe able to help me with forwarding on some parts to the USA from Canada and of course I would happily pay for the service/help.
Thank you all very much for your time and if you may be able to help me please pm.
Thank you very much have a nice day.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Isky or crane fe adjustable rockers
« on: August 20, 2019, 04:13:50 PM »
Hello everyone.
I have a lot of respect for the knowledge and wisdom on this forum and I am after some words of wisdom regarding adjustable rockers for a Ford fe engine soI hope I have posted this question in the right place on the forum.
I am currently building a 445 fe stroker engine for in a 67 gt500 and shelving the original engine so that the original motor is safe and if the stroker motor should go bank while having fun the original motor is safe.
The idea behind the engine is to go slightly better than a factory motor for example stroker motor equals more cubic 445 vs 428 inches,forged crank shaft instead of cast, aluminium cylinder heads instead of cast iron and so on, all the while trying to make it look like a original 67 500 motor as best as possible.(keeping original intake manifold, rocker covers ,air cleaner, pulleys ,accessory brackets)
I have a question regarding rockers I know from the factory I believe the rockers were no adjustable shaft mounted and again following the theme I thought I would upgrade to adjustable.
I wasn’t sure if roller rockers like the shelby engine co roller rockers would fit under the original 67 500 rocker covers so I figured well what about crane or isky versions of the factory adjustable rockers which I believe are 1.76.1 ratio.
Does anyone have any information or advice regarding what is best to use? Roller or factory adjustable and what experiences people have had with different brands Or any other words of wisdom. I appreciate the kind words or any advice anyone can give me from there experiences in life.
Thank you all once again for your help.
Have a nice day
Dave :)

I am currently looking for a 1967 shelby gt500 shifter mechanism for a customer.  I believe these shifter mechanisms had a extra piece weld on them as part of the special handling package available on mustangs I believe? I maybe wrong on that.

I know this is a long shot and I'm sure they are hard to find however if you don't ask you never know.
Any help, information or leads are much appreciated as always.

The Lounge / 427 ford fe harmonic balancer
« on: September 24, 2018, 09:37:40 PM »
Hello everyone
I hope I have posted this question in the correct area. My apologies if it is posted in the wrong place.
I am currently building a fe engine from scratch and am looking at buying a new 427 fe style harmonic balancer.
I have found two brands so far scat #sca-8009. And professional products #80009 both are the street brand rated safe to 6500 rpm non sfi approved.
They then make some slightly more expensive ones that are Sfi approved and rated good to 10000rpm well beyond my fe (6000rpm max) I believe you just change the 8 in the part number to a 9.
My question is has anyone used these brands and what was your experience?  Would you buy a sfi approved harmonic balancer instead even for a street motor? or can someone recommend a different route to go.
Thank you all very much for any help,advice or guidance you can give me.
Thank you very much
Have a nice day
Dave.

I am currently looking for a non-hipo ford 289 engine block with main caps with the early 5 bolt bell housing bolt pattern. Standard bore would be nice however all offers considered.
I am based in Pennsylvania and will be attending the fall Carlisle car show and Hershey show so I could collect and pay in person at either of the shows if preferred.
I would like to try and find one if possible in pa or nearby.
Anybody with any help or information or contacts that could help me locate one would be much appreciated.
Even if it's a short block/long block or complete engine and leads appreciated.
Thank you all once again for your help.

Parts For Sale / 1968/1969 shelby Lucas 8inch fog lights.
« on: September 15, 2018, 06:53:14 PM »
Hello everyone.
My dad has for sale two pairs of the Lucas 8 inch fog lights that was used on the 68 Shelby's and 69 Shelby's I believe also.
These fog lights are new in the original Lucas boxes.  They came from a dealership in England that sold bentleys and apparently some bentleys also used these fog lights also.
The chrome is in fantastic condition as you can see from the photos. They also come with the black plastic covers for the lights.
Now I do believe these are not factory assembly line correct units however I do believe they could be used for a daily driver or clone or maybe someone who wishes to save their originals and use these instead.
Again these are not factory assembly line correct however I thought I would offer them for sale here first before I put them on eBay in case anyone can put them to good use instead of sitting on a shelf.
The price is $300 for a pair or $500 for both pairs( 4 in total)
I will be attending the fall Carlisle car show in Pennsylvania if you wished to collect and pay in person.
If you have any questions please email me.
Many thanks
Have a nice day.
