1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Tie Rod Ends replacment
« on: January 29, 2023, 09:45:11 AM »
I am doing some work on the steering on my 1968 GT350 with PS and without A/C.  I would like to replace my inner and outer tie rods and the adjustment sleeve while I am at it.  NPD sells concours replacements for 65-66 but apparently not 67 and above.

I looked at WCCC and they have repros (although they are currently out of stock on the inners), does anyone have experience with theirs and can tell me how accurate they are?

Any suggestions on where to get the best repros or better yet nice rebuilt originals?

Thank you,

Corey

The Lounge / Starting off my 16-year-old correctly
« on: January 08, 2023, 02:45:26 PM »
We just bought my 16 year old her first Mustang.  45 years ago I bought my first Mustang and it started my love.  From my daughter's reaction she has been bitten by the bug.

The Lounge / This can't be good for the Mach E
« on: June 15, 2022, 09:49:29 AM »
Looks like Ford is stopping the sale of and recalling 50,000 Mach-E's.  Seems they may have rushed to market a little?

Parts For Sale / 1968 GT350 4 Speed Holley
« on: March 11, 2022, 05:15:37 PM »
I had purchased 2 Holley carbs to make 1.  I am selling all the pieces for the second carb.  The baseplate is not correct.  It is a more modern baseplate.  The main body had two holes that were weld repaired extremely nicely.  To the best of my knowledge all the parts are there but I can not guarantee it.

But the body and the metering blocks have all the correct markings for the 1968 Holley 4 speed carb for the GT350.

I am asking $200 plus shipping for it all.

As hard as I try I can not add a picture.  Would be happy to email any pictures to anyone interested.

Appeals / Enclosed Car Trailer Minimum Length
« on: March 06, 2022, 10:12:39 AM »
I am wondering what the minimum length of enclosed car trailer I could get my 68 GT350 Fastback in.  Specifically would it fit in a 16' trailer?

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Dash pot purpose and function
« on: February 21, 2022, 01:26:46 PM »
I have a 1968 GT350 4 speed with the Holley carburetor.  I am reinstalling my freshly rebuilt motor and rebuilt carburetor.  This is the first time I have had the correct carb on the car sense I have owned her.  Everything is running really well but I felt the idle was high.  I can manually depress the dashpot and the idle settles right where it should be and stays there.  But when I come off the dash pot it returns to a high idle.  I removed the dash pot and it runs great and idles perfectly.  What is the point of the dashpot and is mine just too stiff?

Thank you for any help/suggestions.

There is a countersunk tapped hole in the bell housing just above the clutch fork as pictured below.  What if anything should go in this hole?

Thank you,

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Correct Heater Hose
« on: January 20, 2022, 03:13:28 PM »
I want to buy the correct heater hose for my car.  It is a 1968 GT350, February 12, 4 speed, no A/C car.  Looking at NPD they have a few "Concourse" offerings.  Some have red stripes and some have on hose with yellow stripes and one with white stripes.

What would be correct for my car?

Thank you,

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Heater Hose Replacement
« on: January 20, 2022, 08:28:07 AM »
I am currently reinstalling my rebuilt motor into my 68 GT350.  I did a complete refresh on the engine compartment while the motor was out being rebuilt but I did not replace the heater hoses.  In hooking up the heater hoses I feel like they are too short to rout the way they should and they are not the stock hose with red stripes.  So I am feeling like I have gone this far and should replace these hoses.  The console and seats are currently out of the car.  So just how hard is it to replace these hoses?  Are there things I should know before/while tackling this task?  Any tips or advise is appreciated.

Also I see NPD has concourse hoses supplied by Marti Auto Works.  Are these the best ones and is this the best place to purchase them?

Thank you,

Corey

Wanted to Buy / S8MS-9510-C Holley for 1968 GT350 4 speed
« on: November 26, 2021, 09:12:24 AM »
I am looking for a Holley for the February 12 68 GT350 4 speed car.  I am not super concerned about dates.  I would take a good solid rebuildable core or a carb that is already rebuilt and ready to roll.  Please let me know what you have.

Thank you,

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Adjusting the valves on my GT350 302 Engine
« on: September 21, 2021, 03:11:45 PM »
I know most of you guys have been doing this for 50 years and can do it blindfolded but I have never done it.  I have a tapping sound coming from my engine so I need to adjust the valves.  I googled it and see there is a procedure for doing it with the engine running and one with it not.  I personally would have never guessed you would do it with the engine running?

Is there a preferred method to use?

Thank you,

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Oil Leak Help
« on: September 21, 2021, 07:14:08 AM »
I got my freshly rebuilt engine back about three weeks ago.  Got the car all put back together.  I took the car out for a 10 minute test drive around the neighborhood and came home with no issues.  A few days later took it to fill up with gas, was driving about 20 minutes and no issue.  Saturday took it to a local car show so drove it a total of probably 45 minutes including some highway speeds and no issues.  Sunday I took it to a very large show on the eastern shore that was a good hour away.  The trip home was hot and was in bumper to bumper traffic for half of the ride home.  The car ran cool as a cucumber but when I got home a had a significant oil puddle under the car.

I put the car on the lift an found engine oil weeping out of every seam and opening in the bell housing and a spray of oil on the bottom of the car.  So this is no small leak.  I also looked at the block generally and the valve covers specifically and the block is bone dry.

I would like opinions on source of leak.  The two that have been mentioned is of course the rear main seal and the other being the flywheel bolts.  Given the nature of this leak (not there for three rides and then appearing) and the quantity of the leak would that point to one over the other?

Are there any other possible leak points between the block and the bell housing?

Thank you,

Corey

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Hood Front Rubber Bumper
« on: September 04, 2021, 10:47:34 AM »
I am reassembling my 1968 GT350 February 12 build date Shelby and have hopefully a simple question.  I have 2 different styles of front rubber hood bumper that mounts in the fender.  Which style is correct.  In the pictures I have I see both used.

Thank you,

Corey
