I live in a heavily wooded area and have had mouse problems every winter in a barn on our property. I've tried ultrasonics drier sheets, irish spring soap, peppermint oil, mothballs, poison blocks and just about everything else you can think of. Mouse traps catch some of them (more than a dozen a year) but others seem to ignore the traps. Moth balls work in a small area like under a hood.
We have had extensive damage done to our every day vehicles, including having to replace part of the wiring harness in my F150.
The idea is to prevent mice from ever getting in the building to begin with.
This summer I bit the bullet and hired a company that seals buildings. They showed up with metal forming equipment and covered every possible area with aluminum flashing. I have been all around the building with a light and it appears to be sealed. This winter will tell.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Rear Brakes
« on: August 27, 2020, 02:42:06 PM »
Got my first 67 Shelby, 2582. While doing a rear brake job I noticed a component on the hard line and has a bracket attached to the rear end housing tunnel then it goes to the flex line. What is it, not on any Mustang I have ever worked on. Looks familiar but not gonna guess.
You could also be referring to the rear proportioning valve. It is brass about 3 inches long and 1/2inch in diameter. If so, West Coast Cougar has them and rebuild kits.

The late 67 GT 350 cars did not use the common hipo damper. They used a 68 style damper but it has a 67 part number. Your damper looks correct to me for a 5/25/67 build date.

       Dave are you saying the "hub" has a C7ZE casting number?
Thank you for enlightening me on the use of the "stepped" balancer. I have only worked on/ seen the beveled version on '67 350s. I obviously haven't seen them "all" LOL
     Randy

Hi Randy,
The non beveled version has a C7 part number. This part was also used on the GT 350 cars with AC. The reason for the use on the AC cars is that the lower AC pulley won't fit into the earlier balancer.

Transmission could be an HEH-BX depending on when the car was built. Contact 67 Registrar at dmathews@prodigy.net for correct transmission and tag info.

I believe the car sold. The person who painted the car and owned it many was given the wrong paint code from Marti. In my opinion, he did not try to deceive anyone.

The ammeter wiring goes through the choke cable hole for early cars. For later 350's there is an added hole for the wiring.

Had a an AMFM radio in my 67 for over 35 years. It is hardly listened to but when you need it, it is great.
