« on: November 02, 2019, 05:26:15 PM »
1968-1970 cobra jet heads C80E-6090N - inspected,cleaned bare for the way you want them completed; set was matched and selected and inspected by Ford Power Parts in Norco ; Iíve had them in So-cal and my climate controlled shop for 23 years ! Iíve never used them even though Iíve had two 69 cobra jet mustangs; time to let them go ! jim 208-6594552    950.00 plus shipping

My good friend Bill just had his numbers matching engine ď professionally?Ē Rebuilt by a company in California! $10,500 later plus r&r cost  itís smoking on acceleration not as much on deceleration has been Fowling 4 to 5 plugs and itís gone a quart low !! They ran it on their Dyno and did a break-in procedure! He is up here in Idaho with me and now having this engine in his shelby ;  heís looking for help!!  Iím thinking they misaligned the rings or during the break in procedure on the Dyno something was damaged but your opinions are very needed here !  We have not checked the compression but it cranks over evenly with each stroke and it runs With acceptable power ! Changed oil twice with recommended oil and two sets of spark plugs and they are still fowling with oil on them!?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / 1966 California Shelbyís
« on: July 12, 2019, 05:08:48 PM »
I remember going to college in 68 the CHP would set up cones to block the road and direct cars into a tailpipe sniffer for emissions! In my owners manual I read that Shelby got the 427 cobra and the GT350 ď exempt ď from California emissions! Thereís an unrestored green 66 on BATĒ that still has the passenger side lower windshield with its ď exempt ď sticker still!! I was  fortunate enough to find the exempt ď sticker still on my car when I bought it in 97 ! Does anybody else have one and was it just 1966 or was it later years as well ( the orange one found on my windshield and the blue is what you got after you were inspected)

Back in 97 when I purchased 1680 the engine had never been removed as it had only 36k miles true odo reading; I found my coil on the drivers side; most pictures of nicely restored 66 Shelbyís shows them on the passenger side? Did they come both ways?
