Concours Talk / 289 Hi-Po timing chain
« on: May 20, 2020, 05:45:34 PM »
    I just ordered a new Cloyes timing chain set for my 67 GT 350 from Summit.  Seems it isn't going to work due to the extra crankshaft counter weight the Hi-Po's have.  Summit lists 29 different sets.  None say specifically for the 289 Hi-PO.  Yes, they do say small block Ford.
  OK, now what?  Any part number assistance is appreciated.

  Just passing this along.  I have a habit of noting Shelby car numbers (67's in my case) that I see at car shows.  Then I look them up in the registry to see what it says.  And if it says "current whereabouts unknown", I tell that to the registrar.   With whatever story I could pull out of the owner.

CSX 2000 Series / Radio antenna
« on: June 05, 2019, 09:56:25 AM »
  So, here I am reading the 2019 registry.  All the 2000 series Cobras listed with "readio and antenna".  But, looking at the photos I see no antennas.  So, where is it hidden at?  Trying to learn something new every day.  Thanks.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / At the track interview: Early 67 GT 350

Yeah well what else do you call it?
  Right now it is about the third row down.

  This was filmed at the Autobahn Country Club back in very early October (not by me).  They caught me as I was loading the trailer.  So Why not?  The event was the Chicago Vintage Mustang clubs annual show...which includes a few parade laps.  I did those too.
  P/S: That Autobahn logo looks very much like a Cobra to me for you folks slugging it out in the Shelby American eagle eye contest.

  How about one for YouTube videos?  Skip it if we don't have enough storage capacity.

Concours Talk / Chrome-tech going out
« on: December 21, 2018, 09:31:29 AM »
  Just read this on the Spotlight Hobbies board:  Chrome Tech USA (from Wisconsin) is stopping his plastic replating business.  Too bad, about a year ago he did some rehroming of the 67 Deluxe dash pieces for me.

Dateline 04/12/2018  Russell C. Evans passed away earlier this week at the age of 74.  This was due to cardiac complications brought on by diabetes.
  Russ leaves behind his wife Marcia, son Alex, and daughter Bess.

  Folks from the former Northern Illinois Shelby club will remember him as a board member, Carroll Shelby fan, anything Ford powered fan, and a enthusiast of fast cars.
  Russ had owned a LaSalle, a 62 406 Galaxie, a 69 Mach I, but will be best remembered by his Competition Orange 69 GT 500.  Could he make the GT 500 scream around the Elkhart Lake Wisconsin road course during the Northwoods Wisconsin Shelby club events.
  Russ was also an expert model car builder and slot car racer.
       Godspeed my friend!

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Autolite battery legal Mumbo Jumbo
« on: February 26, 2018, 12:17:06 PM »
  Look in the 67 area for the"Group 24 and 22 batteries" thread.  I am making a list of those who are interested in the Legal Mumbo Jumbo cast into the 65-66-67 Autolite batteries. This is a 3-d plate you glue to the top of your battery.

1965 GT350/R-Model / 65-67 Autolite battery Legal Mumbo Jumbo
« on: February 26, 2018, 12:12:47 PM »
  Look for the thread in the 67 Shelby area for my post about purchasing the battery legal Mumbo Jumbo on a plate to glue to the top of your battery if interested.  This would be for the Autolite 65 through 67 batteries that is not repoped and has no correct "topper".

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Automatic shifter detent, oh Mr Yergovich!
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:25:20 AM »
  There is a two page article in Mustang Times (MCA Feb 2018) about the shifter detent Ford put only on the 67 Mustangs that were ordered with the Competion Suspension option AND automatic transmission.
   If you have a photo of the bottom of the adjuster and the extra welded on plate it rubs, it would be appreciated.  Looking to see if there is a spring loaded ball up inside the adjuster and what the shapes of the detents are in the extra plate.  There are not many of these.  It might be easier to just make one than to wait out Ebay for 20 years.  Thanks.

  Bob G:  I think you posted in the "lost" forum:  The measurement or a side by side shape of the shifter side PRNDL detent differences.  Care to repost?  Thanks.
