Wanted to Buy / Re: R-12
« on: October 22, 2022, 11:19:27 AM »
Thanks but I was looking for a known reliable source. I bought some on ebay and my air guy said it was fake and he had to pump it back out. I'm worried about hosing up a unit. Hard to believe anyone would advertise anything other than what it is  8)

Mike, I sent you a PM last night with some questions about your car. Please let me know if you didn't receive? Thanks

Sorry, None of my after markets worked, including my NAPA. Doug was 100% correct. Me and my mechanics just doubted him  :-[. I was lucky enough to finally find an OEM from someone and it worked..

One of my aftermarkets was from NAPA but I do not know the part number but I suggest verifying your actual temp against the gauge if in doubt. I just got puzzled again after reading Mr Gaines comment because my 69 GT350 4 speed convertible with factory air, which is supposed to be restored to near factory specs, has a black insulator. Gauge works accurate. Two local old time mechanics and myself learned a new one on this project. We were all ready to call Doug on it :-) Once again better to listen and learn before I speak.

Appeals / Re: What insurance do you guys use

Insurance companies love to take money, hate to pay money. But I use State Farm. They partner with Hagerty to leverage for lower rates (they claim) and I put 2,000 mile year limit on cars. They have never questioned my valuations. One year I had four claims due to massive storm damage and they settled at Classic values. If you have house or any other coverage discounts kick in. I haven't gotten a competing quote in a few years so premiums might be out of line but seem reasonable.

FYI--my 69 GT with 428 and my 68 GT500KR with 428 also have the sending units with the red insulator just in case anyone ever runs into this on one of those.

Thanks to everyone for help with the Boss 429 temperature sending unit issue. Especially Shelbydoug and Royce Peterson. I managed to source an OEM part (still seems weird to me I couldn't find an after market that is not correctly calibrated) and it solved the problem. The car will not be driven a lot but at least now I know if the temp gauge gets up to "H" I have a problem. I just keep learning!

Thanks again shelbydoug. Just to help with my post, would this be the same sending unit as used in a 69 428 Cobra Jat? If the Boss 429 uses the same gauge then should the sending unit be the same? Thanks, Bob

Thanks for all of your helpful comments. Would this apply to 428 Cobra Jets also? I assume the gauges are all the same? Any suggestions on where I might find the correct sending unit?

Has anyone ever confirmed the actual water temperature on a 1969 Boss 429 when the gauge sits squarely on the "H"? I am just wondering what the actual temp should be when gauge is on "H"? I am new to this car and  have tried changing the sensor and now trying to confirm if the gauge is bad.
Thanks, Bob

Just my 1 cents worth in regards to BAT comments. I currently have a post on the "Cars Wanted" and really looking for a 67 and a 69 for my collection, however the right 70 would work. I saw nothing in the comments that scared me away from this car. I just couldn't figure out how to fit it into what I am trying to accomplish and I have located a car 500 miles away that I am working on. In regards to comments from non buyers, I would be more suspicious of buyers trying to hold prices down rather than non buyers. They are the ones with more to gain.
