During my mockup, I noticed noticed a gap where the AC bracket that holds the pulley meets the PS bracket at the block. Small gap, more like a thick washer. Is that true? I didnít exactly tighten every bolt up, as it was just a mock run, but it gave me pause.

Dropped the engine in yesterday! Looking forward to being on the other side of that mountain.

Thanks again, Chris!

Wanted to Buy / 68 Chrome Oil Breather Cap
« on: April 02, 2020, 07:03:07 PM »
Does anyone have a good original or NOS oil breather cap for a 68 GT500?


So, I have some time on my hands these days... Yay, quarantine

Wondering if anyone has detailed photos of a 68 PI together on a stand just before install? Iíd love to have an out-of-the-car reference, if possible.

Also, what is conventional wisdom when it comes to installing components on the engine and inn the engine bay before dropping the drivetrain back in? Iíve never reinstalled a BB motor/trans, only SBís which have all the room. Can I sneak the drivetrain in with the brake booster and master preinstalled? Any other best practices I should know?

Any wisdom and imagery from your vaults would be greatly appreciated! I WILL get this car back together during this CA lockdown.

With the communities blessing, Iíd like to exercise humility and operate with the motto that ďthere are no stupid questionsĒ. Iíve feel like Iíve done my research and I have *most* of my ducks in a row. Admittedly, one major mistake I made was during disassembly - 2 or 3 years ago now - I went light on pictures. Foolishly, I expected the engine rebuild to be done in a matter of weeks (based on past experience with the builder) and that turned into a year and a half... so my memory is very, very faded.

So, I ask - would a single thread be the best way to ask all of my questions, would you rather I bombard you with individual posts, or keep my mouth shut and let my ego wing it?

Getting a scraping noise on my AC compressor when i spin the clutch and wondering if anyone does restorations of compressors? Otherwise, anyone have any guidance on the DIY process?



1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Stove Choke
« on: June 25, 2019, 09:01:50 PM »
Hey guys -

I just received a new choke stove fitting and filter (repop from Mansfield Mustangs) for my 68 GT500 stock exhaust. Couple of questions -

1) It isn't offering any resistance, just kinda slides in and out. I had assumed it would need to be 'hammered' in. Is there an installation trick?

2) does anyone have any images of how the whole system should look? Having trouble visualizing how the lines run from the fitting to the carb.

The engine is currently on a stand, so it's something that I would like to get right before I drop the engine back in...

Hey all,

I have a spare C7AE-F GT500 aluminum intake manifold that I'd love off my shelf -  $750

Also have a set of GT390/428PI exhaust manifold dated 7H10 (passengers) 7M14 (drivers) - $750

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 68 GT500 engine bay questions
« on: October 26, 2018, 08:03:48 PM »
Hey Gents!

I've finally received my engine back from being rebuilt... 14 months later. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions moving forward, but for now just a couple...

Was there a carb spacer used?

Anyone have more information on the vacuum fitting on the front of the intake by where the coil rests? Pictures?

Same for the tree that goes in the thermohousing?

Is the pulley on the AC compressor black or silver like the case?



Wanted to Buy / 68 GT500 Battery Tray

Rather not go the repop route on this. Any good used ones out there?

There is a difference between tilt and non-tilt trays, no?

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Finishes and name that part?
« on: July 11, 2018, 07:02:38 PM »
Happy summer fellas!

Gearing up to reassemble (a year later) and resources are a little lighter than when I began! Hoping you can help me out with some finishes and naming a handful of questions marks...


Motor mount brackets? (Black?)
Alternator bracket and arm? (black?)
Sway Bar bushing bracket? (Natural?)
AC idler pulley? (Black?)
Lower AC bracket? (Black?)
Water Valve Motor and Guard bracket? (Goldish looking?)

These are the big question marks for me, as far as parts and finishes go -

Thanks for any help!


1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Battery Tray
« on: April 20, 2018, 10:37:00 AM »
Can anyone tell me what size battery tray is correct in 68 - 24 or 27? I assume it's the larger 27, but I'm just guessing at this point...
