SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Fathers Day morning rip with my son
« on: June 20, 2021, 01:00:09 PM »
Hopefully many others had a chance to get out with members of their family.  Will try to attach a short video here but not sure if it will exceed the maximum file size allowed or not. 

I see many 66's with only the cable to floor brackets that are reproduced like the following:   Some 66 cars (like mine) also have a second half clamp with only one screw located about 15-18" further forward on both cables.  Anyone know whether this was a running production change that only later cars got or ?  I have not found anyone reproducing the half bracket although it looks very similar to common cable fasteners that can be found at Home Depot and other hardware and electrical stores. 

I just sold my 70 Cougar vert to a guy in Cincinnati.  He is thinking about hiring someone to take it across the border vs waiting for the border to re-open.  I would drive it to Sarnia or Windsor, then hand it over to the broker who would deliver it to the buyer on the US side.  Anyone know of any brokers they would recommend to provide this service that I could in turn recommend to my buyer?  There are many out there to choose from but both of us would feel better with someone that came with a strong recommendation.  Thanks, John

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / stock 289 hipo compression
« on: April 18, 2021, 09:09:21 PM »
I plan to replace my spark plugs next month.  My engine is stock other than the lemans cam.  The engine runs great - only 7 or 8,000 miles since a complete rebuild many years ago, but I thought I would do a compression test on it anyway when I changed the plugs.  When I do a google search on 289 hipo compression I see a range of between 130 - 170 lbs.  That sounds like a wide range to me for a good engine.  What range would the knowledgeable engine guys on this forum suggest I should be looking for / expect to see ?   

If so, please PM me.  I found a dealer emblem from the dealer my car was bought from - on Springfield Mo Craigslist, but am having trouble contacting the seller.  I believe that might be because my attempts to contact the seller from Canada are not getting through.  Thanks, John

Services Offered / correct phosphate finish for hood hinges
« on: November 06, 2020, 01:12:34 PM »
I was planning on sending my hood hinges to Jim Cowles to have them properly restored - and am hoping he gets well and can still do that - but if that does not happen in the near future, what other restorers would people recommend I consider?  Thanks, John

Parts For Sale / NOS parking brake handle C5AZ-2760-A
« on: October 18, 2020, 03:26:05 PM »
NOS chrome handle in perfect condition with 12/24 threads.  I see where these were used in Galaxies of different years, but I believe it is also correct for a 69 Mustang or Shelby.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  Asking $40 or best offer + the ride which is likely only about $5 in the continental US or Canada.  PM me for pictures if interested.  John

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / 289 fuel pump options ?
« on: March 20, 2020, 01:59:08 PM »
So I sent my original 4201 pump to Fred Ballard in November to get restored / rebuilt.  Long story short, his machine broke, took till early March to get a fix in place with some continued challenges.  He has not gotten mine rebuilt yet and the guy that does his crimping is not well and he's not sure about being able to get the plating done given the lockdown in California.  Sooooo, despite Fred's best efforts, he is not in a position to commit when I will get my pump back.   Now I'm thinking about a temporary solution as I would like to get the car on the road again in the next month.  All that said, 1) does anyone have a good used non original pump that they know works and would do the job, that they would sell, or 2) given there are many pumps out there that you can buy new (Holley, Edelbrock, Carter etc.) that would fit, and would do the job, any recommendations on which might be the best temporary solution.  Occasional street use only.   Thanks, John

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Oil pressure extensions
« on: October 21, 2019, 05:39:34 PM »
Another post about oil pressure extensions made me think of another question.  I've seen hex shaped oil pressure extensions like the one on my 66 GT 350 made from both steel (most that I've seen) and aluminum.  Are aluminum extensions correct for any 65-70 Shelby or Mustang SB or BB applications, or were the originals all steel, or ?

I've seen the original ads that claimed that swapping the original intake and carb on a 289 hipo for a holley dual quad setup and intake was supposed to provide a 45 HP boost to the stock setup but always wondered how accurate those claims were.  Has anyone with a Holley or Carter dual quad setup on their 65 - 67 GT 350 ever dynoed the HP this setup actually makes? 

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / original vs repro 289 hipo main caps
« on: January 16, 2019, 02:19:58 PM »
Not that I need any - but just wondering and always wanting to learn from experienced people on this forum, given the significant increase in the cost of original hipo main caps, are the reproductions available for $500 worth considering for anyone needing a set?  I know many just want all original components full stop, but other than that, is there any reason someone should not consider these supposedly exact reproductions?   

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Who knows their rear sway bars ?
« on: December 26, 2018, 03:26:31 PM »
Was cleaning out the basement the other day and came upon the rear sway bar that the original owner installed on 6S1575 some time before he sold it in '71. I removed it many years ago as I knew it was not stock to my car.   I understand rear sway bars came standard on 69 / 70 boss cars and at least some 70 Mach 1's.  Not sure about other late 60's Mustangs.  The one I have looks OE quality and is in great shape but I don't know if it was a ford part from one of those previously mentioned cars, whether it was a Ford over the counter add on, or whether it a kit he bought from wherever.  I will try to include a picture of it here.  If anyone can identify if it is in fact an OE part and if so, what it was made to be on, that would be appreciated.   Thanks, John
