1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Tachometer Wiring Upgrade
« on: July 29, 2019, 08:22:21 PM »
I'm installing a Pertronix distributor and because of this I was told that I need to "Upgrade" the tachometer from a 2 wire to a 3 wire setup to get the tachometer to work.
Any recommendations on who I could send mine out to in order to get this done? Cost estimate for this to happen?
Help is always appreciated.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Vacuum Advanced Distributor
« on: June 01, 2019, 01:49:01 AM »
The engine I built for my GT350 38 years ago is finally at retirement age. It s burning a little too much oil and runs hot in stop and go traffic.
I am looking to have a engine built to do a swap. The engine comes with a vacuum advance distributor. My problem. I also have been running a paxton that came with the car and which Craig C recently rebuilt for me. I would like to use it again on the new engine.
Question. Can the paxton be hooked up with a vacuum advance distributor in place? \My current distributor is not so I am not sure how the hose would hook up with the carb enclosed. Would I need a plate under the carb housing? Would that work? The alternative is to pay extra for a non vacuum unit and MSD type box to drive it.
Any help and advice on this is appreciated.

Reaching out. The engine I built 37 years ago is tired and wants to be replaced. It runs hot in bumper to bumper traffic and is starting to burn oil. Friends, family, co-worker car people, I've come up empty finding a shop in the Santa Clara County area that I would trust to do the job right at a reasonable price. If any one has some ideas of shops that I could reach out to it would be appreciated. I miss the open track sessions, car shows and just driving it to work.
Any help is appreciated.
