Hi Dan,

Knowing you, 2 out of 3 isn't close enough.  Note these have a different head design - recessed on top and a little lip or flange on the bottom.  And I only have these two.

Thank you Charles.  For some reason, I didn't find this web page when rebuilding the valve. It is oddly worded to say that adjusting this valve changes the pressure to the front brakes, because it actually only controls the pressure to the rear brakes, but I get the message.  Unscrewing the threaded part from the body reduces pressure to the rear brakes.

Just the standard 65/66 valve but here it is disassembled.

I failed to take note of this when I had the valve apart.  If you want to "back off" the rear brakes, do you turn the threaded part into the valve body or out of the valve body?  I think I read that the standard Mustang disc brakes had the valve set at 11 threads showing (?) and the Shelby with the larger rear brakes had 9 threads showing, so turning it "in" reduces pressure to the rear?  And I would also deduce that 2 turns (11 threads to 9 threads) made a noticeable difference?

Clean out all the old gunk in the channel.  Go to an Auto Paint supply store, the place that mixes it and only sells auto paint stuff.  There is a 3M brand glue in a caulk gun to use.  Once I did that, my windows never got loose again

I am guessing this is the stuff you used.  Regardless, I used this product and it did the job.

You might check with Tom Yeager.  He lives in Naples and might know the guy.  No, I don't have contact info for Tom, but someone here certainly does.

Yes, the raised white letters go to the inside.  But they will buff those off for you if you want for a small additional charge.

I also asked about getting a 15 inch radial dual redline tire, which no one currently offers.  He said they will take a single redline tire like:

And for $10 more a tire, add the second red stripe.  It's an interesting option.

Not a Shelby, but here is my '66 with the DB dual redlines on 15" BFGs.

I have used Jackson Speaker Service in Jackson, MI several times and been very satisfied.  Here is some very old info; can't guarantee it is current but I think he advertises in Hemmings.
