1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Scott Drake C6DZ-10884-B temp sender
« on: February 12, 2020, 07:10:14 PM »
As Keith said earlier, the Scott Drake units read hotter than the actual temperature. A few years ago I chased an overheating problem that didn't exist. I spent hours chasing my tail, changing thermostats and playing with radiator fluid additives. I was really pissed off at Scott Drake when I tried a used temp sensor and the problem was eliminated. The repro part wasn't even close. The Ford part whether Autolite or Motorcraft labeled can be made unreadable in a few minutes and they read accurately. I am glad this subject came up here so other's don't go through what I did.

Years ago I had the same awakening. I always had stick shifts. A 67 Shelby with an automatic is a really nice package. My brother refused to drive the car because it was an automatic until one day he was forced to. He got out of the car shaking his head. He couldn't believe that he really liked the combination.

I've used their 67 Magstars but haven't used the 69-70 wheels. The 67 Magstars are very high quality and Craig Conley stands behind his products.

Make sure there is a suitable grommet in the firewall so the wires are protected from chafing.

I have used both hooker headers and the Tri-Ys. Both needed some adjustments. I like the sound of the Hookers but the heat generated by them was a major problem. The Tri-Ys fit easier but didnt have the sound over the stock manifolds but prefer the Tri-Ys. Ground clearance definitely improved and the floor temperature for longer trips was greatly reduced.

does ayone have some good pics of  of the underside of an original 67 all glass hood and decklid that has been blacked out

I want to add that some cars that had the Plazaglas fiberglass hoods and trunk lids were unpainted on the bottom side. The attached photo is what the underside of my hood for #2115 looked like with a little soap and water. The trunk lid was also unpainted.

We have a number of warranty forms by dealers adding the screen to eliminate radio static.

Woody was a great guy. I only met him a few times but exchanged hundreds of emails over the years. He was a character and will truly be missed by all. My condolences to his family.

This guy has a really high opinion of himself. I don't share that same opinion. What a dud.
