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

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
