1965 GT350/R-Model / 65 Pitman and Idler arms on Ebay.
« on: June 07, 2022, 11:31:44 AM »
Hi guys,
Currently there are two auctions on Ebay for 65/66 Pitman and Idler arms. These are presented as being assembly line
parts and priced accordingly. I have checked these out and believe they are very early reproductions.
In fact, I used to own an idler arm just like it. Bought it from a vendor's catalog. Many years ago, I found a NOS
in the Ford box and the markings match the one on my original Pitman arm. Later on, I found another original Pitman arm
which I have as a spare.
I wrote to the seller but got no answer.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 GT500 Dash, Grill, Trunk Emblem Inserts
« on: January 05, 2022, 02:38:41 PM »
Happy New Year to Ya'll,
Some questions for you,
Do you know of any vendor who sells the 67 GT500 Grill, Trunk, and Dash emblem inserts only?
Just the G.T. 500 part, not the Shelby or snake. If not available a complete kit would be fine as well.
Best quality emblems for GT500 gas cap and steering wheel?
Is Carl's Ford Parts still in business? Called and left messages but no one calls back.
Any of you have an original GT500 8V C7ZX intake manifold for sale? 2804 and or 2805 Carburetors as well?

1965 GT350/R-Model / 3259 Carburetor Problems
« on: August 09, 2021, 06:35:55 PM »
My 513 dated 3259 carburetor is acting up. Car doesn't start if I don't pour gas directly into the carb and it just runs until
that fuel is used and then it stops. Tested the pump and it pumps fuel as well as tested if fuel is in the bowls and it is.
It seems like the accelerator lever is stuck as it doesn't move when opening the throttles. just compress the spring.
What can be wrong?  Also, does anybody have the Holley part# for the diaphragm that works with ethanol mixed gas.

The Lounge / Ebay Problem
« on: May 12, 2021, 06:52:25 PM »
Hi guys,
I need your advise. Bought a couple of NOS rubber plugs 377678-S on Ebay two days ago
and today I got the money refunded with a explanation that the seller had ran out of them.
To me that means he sold something he didn't have. However I got my money back.
Now to the question: Shall I give him bad feedback or not?

1969-1970 Boss 302/429 / Steering Gear Box
« on: February 21, 2021, 07:08:23 PM »
Hi guys,
A friend of mine in Sweden owns a 1970 Boss 302 with manual steering and he has a problem with the steering box.
Is there any difference for a Boss 302 or could he use any 16:1 box between 1967 and 1970. Shop Manual for 1970 specifies
SMB-K box. Anybody know where to find one?

Hi Guys,
The picture shows me at Terminal Island in L.A. packing some parts into the trunk before driving the car into a container for shipment to Sweden. This was the first week of June 1977 and I had just bought the car in Huntington Beach.
10 years later I moved to Texas but the car stayed in Sweden.
Was young and beautiful then, now I am only and.

« on: March 31, 2020, 04:58:08 PM »
Hi guys,
My 67 Shelby GT500, 67402F7A01317 was ready at San Jose on Jan 31, 1967.
As I have understood it, the engine (428 8V) was installed by Ford. That includes the COBRA
air cleaner and my question is:
Which type of air cleaner shall my car have?
Bottom as well as top lids?

« on: March 16, 2020, 11:09:33 AM »
Good morning guys,
Hope you are doing fine.
Have a question:
Can any of you tell me what a typical 4-Speed transmission
ID tag says or better yet a picture.
RUG? what letter(s) after the RUG
My car was assembled at San Jose in the end of January 1967 
which means the trans was assembled sometime in Nov-Dec 1966.
Thanks for your help.

1965 GT350/R-Model / 1965 GT350 Cobra Vent Caps
« on: September 20, 2019, 08:59:47 AM »
Hi guys,
Have a couple of questions for you:
Just vent through the 1965 SA Parts list and found something I didn't know. Listed is
a clamp for the hoses going through the floor board from the Cobra Vent Caps.
Listed on page 58 is this clamp with article number S1MS-10721-A. Does anybody know if this clamp was used
in production and do you have a picture or other information about it?
The hoses are listed as S1MS-10720-A. Does anybody have an original to measure the hose, outside diameter, inside diameter
and length?
Thanks for any help.

The Lounge / My health
« on: June 27, 2019, 06:31:40 PM »
As many of you know, I got a strep infection after a Dentist cleaning and two heart valves were destroyed.
6 weeks after surgery I feel like an animal farm after one valve come from a cow and the other from a pig.
Also got a pacemaker installed. No matching serial number any longer. Got home yesterday with a wheelchair and walker.
Like to thank all my friends who visited me at rehab, Doctors and Nurses at Medical Centre of Plano, TX and above all my family.
