1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / wiring diagram
« on: January 22, 2021, 07:15:59 PM »
About a week or so ago I asked the folks here an 'Electrical Question'.  Got some great responses and sent them to my friend to help him with our quest (he said 'thanks, all!).  He lives out of state, but will be coming by next week to look over the issue and see if he can fix it.  In the meantime, he asked if anyone had any sources on getting a wiring diagram (68 Shelby GT500).  I have a Mustang book called an 'exploded view' - which is helpful, but he really would prefer a wiring diagram.  Any suggestions?  Thanks, much!

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / electrical question

I know electrical issues can be a bear to locate so I thought I'd present this to the folks here - in case someone else had a similar issue so as to help narrow it down a bit before I send it to a shop for analysis.  Thanks, all!

My '68 GT500 was recently put back in running condition - after many years of storage; so it's probably still in the 'working out the bugs' stage. Although the battery was less than a year old, I just discovered it had totally died.  I bought a new battery and when we went to connect it, it sparked a lot more than usual, then heard a ticking sound (no key in the ignition yet).  We put on the headlights - and them, and the interior dash lights - were flickering, in unison with the ticking sound.  My friend pulled some of the fuses out; no change.  The ticking appears to be coming from the dash - driver's side. Any thoughts as to where we should focus our efforts first would be greatly appreciated!  (the battery is now disconnected on a trickle charger, since I presume whatever the cause of the ticking is what may have caused the last battery to die prematurely - I did not hear it prior to connecting the new battery, though, but it is possible I wasn't listening for anything - thanks, again!)

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Shock installation question
« on: July 11, 2020, 12:41:42 PM »
Hello!  I have my '68 GT500 at the shop and they are having some problems with the shocks.  When they tried to take the worn ones off it was noted that they were very 'tight'.  Probably took them awhile but once they got them off, they went to put a new set on and were faced with the reason that the other shocks were so difficult to remove.  He stated that the angle was very extreme - basically if he were to put them on as intended, they would hit the towers - hence who ever put them on (40+ years ago - during which time the car has been in pretty much storage since) must have really had to use some force to get them to even bolt on.  I told him I would check with the pros on this site and see if there is something unique about the installation, or perhaps a special tool was used - or perhaps the previous owner may have done some 'improper modifications' along the way.   Thank you for your assistance.
