Wanted to Buy / Ford Toploader, Shifter Plate Screw
« on: October 26, 2020, 07:54:06 PM »
Searching for the Factory Phillips head screw used to mount the shifter interface plate to the transmission tail shaft. 
Apparently this was a factory goof.. the screw was snapped off and it had been like that since day one is my guess..  This screw is a “self tapping design”
If someone has an extra, please PM me. 
Thank you

Wanted to Buy / 1968 GT500KR 4speed Flywheel original or nos

428CJ standard flywheel. 
I just heard from my engine shop that the flywheel stress crack is not cleaning up in a resurface. 
My flywheel only had the engineering number and hardness dimple. 
I would a unit with similar markings.
Anyone have a source for a flywheel that will resurface within specs and be safe?
Thank you

Wanted to Buy / FORD CYLINDER HEAD PLUG C6AZ-6052-A Thermactor Tube Plug
« on: October 07, 2020, 07:20:25 PM »
Looking for qty 1 NOS Ford Thermactor plug that goes in the exhaust port..
Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you

Seeking advice on what to use to plug the thermactor tube holes in a  428CJ head.
I know that  Ford offered a part number for that application.. when removing the smog setup.
Has anyone used them?
Comments or suggestions to use these or something else?
I’d like to have these plugs run down to the exhaust port surface and provide a direct exhaust exit with limited chamber turbulence.

Trying to determine the originality of the fenders on my car.  The car was involved in an accident early in its life.. mostly in the  lower front section of car, but did damage the hood and that appears to have been replaced correctly.

The fender date codes are March, but the car is a September car (4428) Looking at the build sheet, it isn’t obvious what the exact date is on that... text is offset from actual column. (See attached)
I think possibly the fenders were replaced. These fenders can be repaired correctly, but if they aren’t original to the car, then I think I will chase down early NOS fenders and reduce the complexity of the metal work.
Comments greatly appreciated. 

Requesting suggestions..what would you do...?
I’m finally working on my KR that has been parked for 40+ years.
This is a low mileage car with the complete emissions setup.
After much thought ...I decided to built it the way I wanted and enjoy the car. 
I will be removing the emissions, keep the stock intake and carb.
The original exhaust manifolds will be removed and boxed with the complete emissions setup.

Engine will be balanced, adding ceramic free flow headers and a proper dual exhaust. 
The rest of the car will be bone stock on this rust free car.

Should I keep the stock cam grind or ?
Anyone have a real world experience with a CJ ?
Thank you

Information in a 1995 parts book published by Robert Lane that listed both the 65 and 66 GT350 transmission tag#s
1965: HEK-R or HEK-V
1966: HEK-AD
The application information says:
 289k (engine)
Warner four speed, includes GT350
We all know the gears are different for the GT350.

I’ve seen other publications that don’t include any information on transmission  tag #s

Is this information correct?
What is the significance of this designation?
  - just describing the basic transmission other than the high nickel gear sets?
        - case, tail shaft, main shaft tooth count, lengths?
I like to under this designation if anyone has a detailed understanding of the BW & Ford numbering for the GT350 Sebring Transmission.
