It's a typical housing used after about February 1968 on all Mustang / Cougars.

I don't often get to correct Special Ed.
No you are mistaken. Even changing to April 1 there was not a typical housing. There was staggered shock housing and non staggered

That's not what the book says nor what I have found over the past 50 years. Maybe you ought to be quiet and learn.
Good advice, you should try it

Thatís very true because Ed is usually correct and in this case he is. For the sake of simplicity and not to confuse people over the spline count because of how Shelby put 31 spline axles into conventional 9

Shelby didn't put 31 spline axles in anything - Ford did on the assembly line.
Are we splitting hairs here? Of course Shelby didnít put them in but Shelby cars specified them as well as the cobra jet Mustangs. Come on you can say it, Ed was correct

For the sake of simplicity and not to confuse people over the spline count because of how Shelby put 31 spline axles into conventional 9 inch housings I will just say that there is a staggered shock housing and a non-staggered shock housing. The 68 four-speed cobra jets which included cars were the only cars that used the staggered shock housing and it does have the two holes like Ed is describing. The standard 9 inch housing had one hole that held down the brake hose and use the vent hose to secure it. On a staggered shock car because the exhaust has to go around that shock there needs to be a relocation of the vent hose.
Easiest way to see this is look in an MPC. Four-speed cobra jet car is used a C8 brake hose and all other 67 and 68 9 Inch housings used C7
Special ed correct, again 😁

It is also very interesting that you can come on the forum and defend yourself but you canít find time to respond to any of the three emails I sent you asking if you made a mistake about it being sold

The facts are this. As you said and as I said in my reply it is your right to sell whoever you want to sell it to. It is in bad taste that you speak to someone and indicate that it is sold and then you sell it to somebody else. I would not do business with you in the future because of it and Iím sure other people that are observing this may feel the same way. Good luck

Buy beware with this seller. I was the first to respond to his ad on the 513 carb. Timeline says my email was sent literally the same minute that he posted. I told him as long as it was legit consider it sold and he replied that it was a great carburetor and that he would get me pictures when he got home at 4 PM
I didnít hear anything so the next day I asked him if he was sending those pictures and he told me it was sold. I realize itís a sellers prerogative to sell who they want but if weíre gonna require sellers to post a price then they should at least honor it a such if we are going to be a place for people to sell their wares
