1967 Shelby GT350/500 / HEI Plug Gaps ?
« on: March 09, 2020, 04:47:10 PM »

HEI conversion done and running very well..... just one question since I am getting conflicting plug gap information.

Being the stock plug gap spec is .028 to .032 for points, I have always been under the impression to add about .005 when converting to HEI...... so I gapped my new plugs at .035 during the install. A local dirt track engine builder told me that I should run them up to .040 even .045 for more spark and the Hi Po will be much happier.

What say the Fourm experience here ?

As always.... thanks for your advise.


1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Factory A/C ?
« on: February 23, 2020, 10:11:02 AM »
Of course the Marti Report doesn't show it, but now that I have a copy of the Ford dealer's original sales order to the original owner of my GT-350, the buyer was charged $299.00 for factory FoMoCo a/c. My question is, is a dealer installed option prior to the original buyer taking possession of his new GT-350, considered just an add on, or is it a legitimate option ?   Kind of like most radios being dealer installed ?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Distributor Question
« on: February 17, 2020, 09:15:44 AM »
My buddy and I were installing a Pertronix Ignitor HEI kit in my GT-350 yesterday.

While in the process, noticed a little play on the shaft. Would this just be bushing wear after all these years I'm thinking.

Can the bushing or bushings be replaced ?



1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Dumb Question ?
« on: February 13, 2020, 03:09:24 PM »
Am I wrong, but '67s don't have sequential rear turn signals ..... do they ?

I was always under the impression they came out in the '68s ..... but I'm seeing references to the otherwise......

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Ammeter Wiring ?
« on: January 15, 2020, 03:18:36 PM »
I did a search but found nothing on this.... but my question is..... I have read somewhere guys remove, or just don't connect their ammeter wiring harness for fear of an electrical problem.... or fire ?

Is this true, and can someone enlighten me prior to me hooking mine back up on my GT-350  ?

Thanks in advance,

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / '67 Oil Pressure Sender Extension ?
« on: October 19, 2019, 11:04:57 AM »
It appears that I have a bit of seepage at one of the ends on my extension.

I was going to remove and either reseal, or replace, until I saw that my oil pressure sender appears not to be connected by an electrical wire, but what looks to be a very small id plastic line. I'm assuming a small vac line.

Please educate me as to what I am looking at, and how best to deal with it ?

Thank you in advance.
