1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1969 GT350 Z bar clutch linkage adjustments
« on: August 09, 2020, 05:50:33 PM »
Im not sure if my Z bar is bent.   Does anyone know if someone makes a stronger Z bar or a way to reinforce one so it doesnít bend?  I have to almost push the pedal through the floor to get the clutch to engage so I can shift into gear. I used the procedure in the shop manual but my pedal always has to be pushed all the way to the floor to shift.  Is there a way to adjust the lower rod to make it disengage closer to the top of the pedal travel and still have enough free play?  Also I installed a Center force clutch and pressure plate and throw out bearing and cannot get the pedal to come all the way up without assistance. I had to put a heavier spring to the Z bar from the firewall in order to get the pedal to come full up.    Thanks in advance for any help you can give

Was an electric power antenna an option for 69/70 Shelbyís?  If so how many actually came with them?

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1969 GT350 Alignment specifications
« on: May 25, 2020, 05:11:04 PM »
I was wondering what alignment specifications everyone is using for a 69 GT350?   The upper control arms have not been lowered and I have 235 60 15 BF Goodrich tires. My car is mostly street driven but I do take it on the track also.  My reason for asking is I have been told several times that the specs in the manual arenít good for radial tires or track use.  It seems that every place I look all have different specís and at this point Iím just getting confused about what alignment specifications to use.   Thanks in advance for any help.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Has anyone converted their A/C to 134A
« on: October 01, 2019, 10:51:01 AM »
Has anyone converted their A/C to r134a? I was wondering how it cools? I have a factory A/C car. It currently has a York compressor that gone bad. With the price of R12 and itís getting hard to find in my area I m thinking of converting to R134.  Also I would like to know if anyone has installed a Sanden compressor? Do you like? How does it work?  My car is a driver and having A/C again would be great.  Thank you in advance
