Parts For Sale / 67 GT500 Ford 4 speed cross member
« on: December 07, 2023, 01:52:27 PM »
This is a really nice ORIGINAL 67 gt500 4 speed manual rear cross member.

It is stamped 390 STD. It is date coded 7 6.  5 20 A.  X.  and R.

It has been glass beaded and left unpainted so the stampings can be more easily read.

These '67 BB FE' 4 speed cross members are unique to that model year. The 68's and later have the same stampings, i.e., date coded, 390 STD. etc, but have a different shape then the '68 and later do for the exhaust clearances.

For some inexplicable reason TO ME they raise the transmission around 3/4" higher then the small block cross member does? Why? I don't know? Possibly for fan clearances to the hood in the front of the engine?

So guess what? If you are ATTEMPTING to accurately restore a '67 BB then you just found ANOTHER unique part. When will it ever stop? I don't know either?

The price on this is $700.  $20 to ship USPS Flat Rate, Large Box within the Continental US.  Additional to go elsewhere at whatever the additional cost is.

Payment by Paypal, "Friends and Neighbors" please.

PM me here if interested.

There is little more then running engine break in time on them.

They are in like new condition except for the marks are from the guide plates.

Parts For Sale / Ford FE 390-428 Rocker arm assemblies
« on: December 07, 2023, 11:18:41 AM »
This is a set of 2 stock Ford 390-428 non-adjustable rocker arm assemblies.

They have been sitting in my shop for quite a while and will need to be disassembled and cleaned before installation.

They appear to have little wear on them and the engine that they came out of had 32,000 miles. So I think that is about right.

They are good usable assemblies and are original production line Ford parts as far as I can tell.

The best shipping method at this point for them is undetermined. I will ship them anywhere for cost.

If interested, PM me here.

$60 for the pair plus shipping.

Parts For Sale / 428 Push Rods
« on: December 07, 2023, 11:12:19 AM »
This is a new set of TRW service push rods for a 428.

They were sold to me as hardened but I can't verify that without scratching them with a file.

They are ball to ball so they are for the hydraulic lifter application that uses non-adjustable rocker arms.

They measure just a hair under 9.5" but push rods get measured from the rocker arm sockets to the hydraulic lifter sockets so I can't verify that they are 9.350" official lengths?

I will ship in the continental US in a USPS Medium size flat rate box and will ship overseas for whatever extra that is.

Price is $60 for the set of 16, plus $15 shipping (continental US)

PM me here if interested.

The Lounge / Cylinder Head Flow numbers
« on: November 27, 2023, 10:57:33 AM »
For those of you interested in subjects like this check out this web site.

The Tunnel Port 302 cylinder heads did receive much negative press back in 68 but they really aren't the main culprit in the Ford racing failures that year.

For one thing there is no way that they flowed numbers that Ford had published. In fact they were around 250 on the intakes.

The iron Boss 302's stock were actually a little better out of the box BUT if you follow some of the magazine articles on the race prep for the B2 heads, they were getting epoxied down quite a bit to make the rpm usefulness scale.

It may just be that the C head was more adaptable to race prep then the TP was.

The only head of interest to me that Weiss has not tested is the GT40 iron head from what I can see. Even the Gurney head is on the list of testing.

All in all this is an interesting read and should answer many questions as well as probably shocking you as to how bad stock heads were out of the box then especially
considering what today's aftermarket heads do.

Are the kits shown in the Off Highway Boss 302  Chassis booklet still available anywhere?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 GT500 fork boot solution

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 68 Shelby rear panel screws
« on: October 11, 2023, 08:48:49 AM »
Are the black screws that hold the rear fiberglass taillight panel in place "black stainless"? Are they truss head or something else?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 428 Dipstick tube
« on: October 07, 2023, 08:17:15 AM »
Is there a difference in dipstick tubes for the FE engines?

The Ford Service replacement tube that I have mounted on my 67 GT500 engine does not fit correctly.

When the mounting flange to the exhaust manifolds is connected, the tube is too short and pulls out of the block mounting point.

I am presuming that the answer to my question is yes, there are different tubes, but what is the service part number for the correct one?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Installing headers on 67 GT500
« on: October 05, 2023, 05:47:57 PM »
I think that I read that some have installed Hooker headers on an engine first before installing the engine. Then installing the engine, transmission and headers together as a unit?

Has anyone here tried that?

The Lounge / Why did the Forum server go down?
« on: September 26, 2023, 08:51:23 AM »
For the second time in the last two weeks, the Forum server was not in service.

Was/is there an issue with the server or was this some type of un-announced maintenance?

There seems to be no changes in the format of the operating software here so it couldn't have been that?

See. All those posts. Nothing's gonna' change here. Some still running a-muck.

Past history shows that was totally predictable.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 Shelby build sheets
« on: September 07, 2023, 07:34:11 PM »
I don't remember this being asked before but do the 67 Shelbys have build sheets in them? I don't think that I have ever seen one?
