1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Upper control arm greasing
« on: August 12, 2021, 02:48:07 PM »
When greasing the 4 bushings on a new set of Moog control arms, I can tell 3 of them are full because of back pressure on the grease gun. The 4th just keeps pumping with the grease seeping out the back of the shaft. I called Moog and they said it's normal for the grease to come out but couldn't explain why it only happens for 1 of the 4.

It doesn't sound normal to me and I believe there is a rubber seal in the nut to prevent this so before I go through the hassle of removing the control arm, any thoughts/opinions?

Thanks

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Arning drop on a 66
« on: September 09, 2020, 10:18:41 PM »
I have the front suspension off a 66 and the PO did the 1 drop back in the 60s or early 70s. The holes in the shock towers are 1 below the factory holes where they should be but are not 1/8 back as shown on 65/66 templates.

How much does this matter?

If the shaft is rotated 1 complete turn, that relocates the arm a little more than 1/8 and although close to bottoming out against the bushing everything still moves freely. A-arm spacing at shaft is 7 7/16 as it should be.

Any thoughts about relocating the A-arm by rotating the shaft 1/2 or a full turn or just leave things as they are?

Trying to avoid welding up holes and re-drilling for 1/8

Thanks
