1969 Shelby GT350 detail questions
« on: August 15, 2018, 02:30:30 PM »
Working on the motor and a few details needed,
Thermostat housing part number and if similar to the Boss 302 with the larger inlet
Also does this have the thermactor setup that screws in to housing with vacuum hoses
Alternator bracket that bolts to motor, painted with natural bolts or bolts painted also
Temperature sending unit on intake, painted or natural
Water neck in intake, natural or painted

Any help to get me moving forward would be appreciated

I believe there are some excellent photos on concoursmustang.com

The 351 does not have thermactor, I think you are referring to the ported vacuum switchon the thermostat housing?

Many 69/70 GT350 simple had a square plug in the thermostat housing from the factory. The dist got vacuum from intake or carb (sorry I forget at the moment). You would be safe to install as per the shop manual or pictures in the link .

Some of your questions are going to be dependent on if the car was an automatic or 4 speed car ;)
