I've been watching this auction and another for a 2006 Ford GT Heritage with no reserve.  Guess which one
has more comments.     :o

+1  If I only had unlimited garage space.   :'(

Pertronics fail too.  At least with points you have a chance of fixing it.   ;)

Napa sells Echlin ignition parts.  Good quality replacement parts.  Avoid Autozone/Advance Chinese crap.

Could be a Hertz car with that configuration.

I would think the rubber seal would work the same on either brass or stainless, provided the surface finish is the same.  The piston in the valve moves very little, all of the wear will be in one small area,  so I prefer stainless  If I remember correctly, I used a 1/2" stainless plumbing nipple and machined the OD and ID to make the sleeves.

If the bore of the proportioning valve needs a sleeve, I use stainless.  Some people use brass because it's easier, but I prefer stainless.  With stainless you'll never have to worry about pitting in the bore again.  Assemble with your choice of fluid, cap the ports and store in a dry place.

I have a hardtop for my Fbird.  It was on the car when it was delivered, but hasn't been on since (9 yrs).  Weighs a ton.

Mine arrived yesterday in eastern PA.   ;D


Are you getting younger??    ;)

Which side are you looking for?  I have a bunch, but mostly earlier.  A post in the wanted section with the casting number, date range and side might get some responses.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: C4 pan leak
« on: April 28, 2020, 10:15:01 AM »
I have not had trouble with C4 pan leaks. Often the O - ring on the dipstick tube leaks, resulting in the appearance of a pan leak. Make sure that is not your problem. Fluid is halfway up the dipstick tube when the engine is off.

+1  Make sure the dipstick tube isn't bent a little.  The mounting tab should line up without having to put much pressure on it.  You may need to bend the tube so it lines up nicely.  If you have to force the mounting tab, you are distorting the O-ring.  Ask me how I know.   >:(
