The Lounge / HELP Oil pressure too high. 351-C
« on: January 29, 2024, 08:57:52 AM »
Background: 351 C in a 1970 Mach 1. A couple weeks ago, while driving the car, I noticed my oil pressure gauge needle climb to the “H” on the scale. Car runs fine, doesn’t overhead. Oil and filter changed a short while ago. Running 10W-30 Mobile synthetic.
First, I changed oil and filter again in case the filter was clogged up. Gauge still reads “H”. Next, I installed new oil pressure sending unit at the block. Started up and the oil pressure gauge needle still resting on the “H”. Then I pulled the sending unit from the block and installed a test oil pressure gauge that actually reads pounds of pressure. At engine start up over 74 LBS pressure. After full warm-up, the gauge still high, around 62-64 LBS. After a few laps around the block, oil pressure stays above 60 LBS while driving and falls back to 40 at idle. Next, I replaced the oil pump with a new Melling unit, 84A as recommended by the tech at Melling’s hot line. No change in oil pressure reading, darn it. Another longer test drive again, and upon close inspection, it appears that the engine is pushing a little oil out, either at the distributer seal, or the front of the intake gasket.  This is as far as I can go with my limited knowledge of engines. Oil passageways plugged. Any advice appreciated before I pull the engine. The engine sounds fine and makes no noises like its lacking lubrication anywhere. Feel free to PM me if you’d like to discuss my dilemma or call me 864-321-0248.  Thanks in advance, Denny

Parts For Sale / 1966 Seatbelt Leather Pads
« on: February 12, 2021, 06:05:43 PM »
I replaced the leather pads on my Ray Brown seat belts today.
I had a premier leather shop make the new pads using my originals as the template. The new leather pads have been precisely cut to the exact measurements of the originals, using the same weight leather too. Same color, black finish on the top, natural leather on the bottom. See photos.

While they were filling my order, I asked them to make a few extras just in case any of you Forum members out there are missing one, or have the need to replace both of yours.

I'm asking $20 each, $35.00 a pair, shipped free in continental U.S.A. If you're out of the country, please PM me and we'll see what we can do to get them to you.

If you would like me to attach them to your hardware, you'll need to send your belt to me. I'll reattach the leather using the same tubular rivets that were used on the originals. I'll need to charge a little extra for my time and materials, plus return postage to you.

Please PM me through the Forum if you're interested. Limited quantity.

Thanks, Denny



SAAC Forum Discussion Area / What's in Leo Beebe's left hand?
« on: December 12, 2020, 11:20:38 AM »
In the SAAC 2020 annual magazine, there's a wonderful article on Leo Beebe. the article begins on page 46and runs through page 54. Thanks Rick Kopec for this interesting historical background and interview with Mr. Beebe.
On page 54 at the bottom right of the page, there's a photo of Beebe along with Ray Geddes and Carroll Shelby. In Beebe's left hand, he's holding a couple copies of something that appears to be titled GT-350 with the CS logo on top border.
Can any of you "Literature Collectors" identify what Leo's holding. Thanks, Denny
