I think it makes more sense to block the tubes at the heads as Bob suggested.  Should reduce the heat in the tubes which might burn or discolor the paint.

Wanted to Buy / Re: 69 428 cj 3 groove water pump pulley
« on: January 02, 2022, 09:11:09 AM »
The pulley had the number stamped in yellow ink, which is probably long gone.  You have to peek down between the outer sheave and the inner two to find a number stamped in the metal.

No washers under those screws.

A reminder that I am available for pump rebuilds; $415.  See first post for picture of the finished product.  The cars at last year's Indiana Fall Classic were awesome but even some of those needed help improving this underhood detail.  ;)

I don't know why my link to Daytona Parts Company is so tiny/invisible, but if you click it, it will work.  They insert a threaded brass sleeve and pin it in place.

These folks can fix it.  Give them a call to describe the process.

On my '66 I am running repro Style Steel wheels with 4-5/8" BS and 215/60X15s on the front.  They will touch the fender lip occasionally - like low speed, wheel turned hard, over a bump.  My car sits fairly low.  No problem in the back - I am running 235/60X15s.

LOL!  How may answers did you want?  Bob is probably correct for a '67, though I have been using the yellow ended ones on the C5 distributors I have done.  So the black one is same as Hi Po 289?

I think you want the wire with the eyelet and yellow molded connector.

Not a Shelby, but my 9/65 scheduled build San Jose car has the half clip you mention.

It has already popped off once but I don't see how you could get a c clip on it the way it is designed?


Me either!!  You probably just need to tweak the arm up a little so it is snug against the bottom of the plate when located over the pin.

I think you are talking about the ball bearing advance plate that positions the vacuum advance arm underneath the plate rather than on top.  If so, there is no retaining clip.

« on: May 13, 2021, 08:03:59 AM »
I have only seen that points felt for the cam on the Blue Streak points sets.  I think there is a little paper in the box that mentions the felt being impregnated with something and not needing any additional lube.  There is a Blue Streak grease for the points cam, called Lubri-Cam.
