From the Holy Grail of 715 carbs...

I will bite for one set. If you have any extra primary wires, could use 2 more.
Thanks Tim

So from your Judging perspective in Concours class, flange and muffler were typically black, unless there is some evidence showing car as delivered, had something different. Side pipes should be black, but could be natural without a deduction.
I will send Jess that photo and leave it at that. Interesting discussion at least.

Appears pipes were shipped "natural" as well as painted black. Bo's (Texas Suede) picture shows side pipes as natural with the intermediate pipes black. Jesse at Shelby Parts and Restoration said his experience was that if intermediate pipes were black, so were the side pipes. Would venture to say there were some cars that had the intermediate pipes one coating with side pipes another. Suspect a Judge would not "ding" you if painted intermediate and side pipes or left them natural or mix and match...I was told the intermediate pipes were not welded to the flanges until after the "mufflers" and side pipes were properly positioned.Then, spot welds were done to the flange before they were removed and welded all way around. Lot or processes were evolving at SA. Can easily imagine painting tailpipes might have been one of those that evolved...

Hard to tell from Bo's picture to see if the intermediate, muffler and long pies were black or some combination. What would be considered correct for a Mar-Apr numbered car?

Any idea of original tail pipe diameter?

Assume both tail pipes were same length and bent identically? Meaning there wasn't a left and right side tail pipe?

Does the SA manual indicate what degree exhaust tips were cut at? Appears something other than a right angle.

1965 GT350/R-Model / 65 Hipo Distributor - A question of Dwell
« on: December 28, 2021, 11:14:10 AM »
Believe Bob Mannels book says to set points in a 65 dual point distributor to .019-.021 which should result in 30-33 degrees of dwell. If you blocked one set of points (A) and adjusted other (B) to 26 degrees dwell, moved block from A and moved it to B, then set dwell on A to 26 degrees, total dwell should be between 30-33 degrees when blocks removed. Would think dwell meter would be much more accurate than a feeler gauge. Thoughts?
