T10M came originally with a metal drive gear and 7 teeth and equipped with the original blue dot tires and 3:89 rear axle gears
the driven gear was L20 i.e. 20 teeth.

The Ebay auction specifies the Thunderbird part number, and I thought the Shelby hubcaps used the S7MS number.
Wonder if they are the Thunderbird unit and a Shelby emblem was attached.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / SFM 6S 1228
« on: August 29, 2023, 11:58:55 AM »
Hi guys,
Heard through the grapevine from Sweden, that the White Hertz car 6S 1228 was sold from Sweden to somebody in the USA.
I tried to buy that car in 1976 but a guy from Gothenburg, Sweden beat me to it. His name is Tommy Carlsson and it took him 30 years to restore the car. He sold it to a guy in the USA who flew to Sweden and picked it up and had it shipped over the pond.
It was featured in a Swedish Car magazine Bilsport in 2014.

My car, having a higher Shelby number, 275 to 228, than yours, still have a lower Ford number.
My brackets are dated 4 23 2D on passenger side and 4 26 2D on driver side.
There used to be a guy here in the Dallas, TX area who rebuilt (recovered) the wire harness,
to the rear lights including the fuel sending unit with the correct material. Believe his name was
Pat White III. He did an excellent job on my car. Sadly, I believe he is gone since many years.

What Bob says makes perfect sense as Y2 was for a 4-speed V-8 like the G2. I believe F2 on your radiator means it was for
an automatic car. Does it have any connection to the auto oil lines at the bottom.

No, a 65 Shelby should have a G2 and not F2.

This picture was taken at LAX in late May.1965.
First car in first row is #283, second is #276, third is #275 (my car) and fourth is #273.
There is a larger picture showing a car left of #283 and it's #290.
Haven't found any earlier picture.

CSX 3000 Series / Re: Ethanol, gas
« on: June 26, 2023, 07:44:00 AM »
To me, ethanol makes no sense at all to use with gasoline. Here in Texas, I buy ethanol free 92 octane from Buckee's and then I put Seafoam in the tank to preserve the gas.

Hi Jeff,
I looked at AMK's homepage and the part number is Ford I-kit F-387 which include bolts, nuts and slot screws,
When you look at Indivifual Kits just click on the camera at the far right and an excellent picture shows up.

If my memory serves me right, many years ago I bought a 65 Shelby 7/16"oil pressure line from what was said to be
from 5R097. Had it for many years and finally traded it with a friend. Never used it as I have the original 1/2" line on my car.

After I changed to a solid-state regulator with the correct cover, I have never (knock on wood) had any problems.
The way it made itself visible was the flickering or always showed a weak red lamp at idle.
