My suggestion would be to buy the best repro tubes and, for maximum correctness, splice the portion of your original DS tube that has the bracket and check valve nut.

Hayden 2765 is the correct replacement for an original C9Z 428 CJ clutch.  The Hayden catalog is wrong.

Wanted to Buy / WTB - Smog Pumps!

If you have extras of any of the 68-73 style smog pumps, I am very interested in buying them as cores to support my restoration hobby/business.  These are identified by a round relief valve on the side of the pump body and a back cover with the casting number 7801149.  Bonus points for original fasteners and outlet elbow.  You can see what I do with them here:  PM me here or contact by email at jimwoods7 at outlook dot com.

Just for fun, here is an original KR w/o A/C smog belt.  Looks like C5DE to me but could be C5OE maybe.

My 9/65 San Jose car (not a Shelby) had the dual tang and appeared to be P&O finish.

Yes, you need professional advice, not Internet advice.  However, I don't think you can add routine maintenance costs to your cost basis.  Things you spent money on to improve the cars value help to increase your cost basis but maintenance does not.  That has been my understanding.

I think it makes more sense to block the tubes at the heads as Bob suggested.  Should reduce the heat in the tubes which might burn or discolor the paint.

Wanted to Buy / Re: 69 428 cj 3 groove water pump pulley
« on: January 02, 2022, 09:11:09 AM »
The pulley had the number stamped in yellow ink, which is probably long gone.  You have to peek down between the outer sheave and the inner two to find a number stamped in the metal.

A reminder that I am available for pump rebuilds; $415.  See first post for picture of the finished product.  The cars at last year's Indiana Fall Classic were awesome but even some of those needed help improving this underhood detail.  ;)

I don't know why my link to Daytona Parts Company is so tiny/invisible, but if you click it, it will work.  They insert a threaded brass sleeve and pin it in place.
