Drivetrain / Re: "SPEC" instead of date code on exhaust manifold?
« Last post by J_Speegle on Today at 02:42:42 PM »
Have seen it on other exhaust manifold (same application you listed) and believe its not related to any prototype or experimental purposes or we would not find the same markings on 67 Shelby third member casings. They may have had some purpose originally and then things changed and they made their way into production usage

Never saw any differences in the exhaust manifolds and dated ones that I've seen but they make good conversation pieces. We may never find out who and why

Yes, and I figured anyone needing it would also know ;)

Guess shipping to GER will be a job stopper......
1967 - 1968 / Re: '67 Rear Bumper Guards with Dual Exhaust?

Good to know!
I'm not sure I've seen a non-GT S-code car in years.
There have been so many retrofits of this valance onto cars it's confusing.

My 67 GTA A-code had the cutout valance (valence sp is correct too) which was a retrofit.
Had to be since it was originally a single exhaust car.

So in summary for 1967 we have:

C code - single exhaust
C code GT - single exhaust
A code - single exhaust
A code GT - single exhaust
K code - dual exhaust On edit -- GT was a mandatory option for K code cars.
K code GT/Shelby GT350 - dual exhaust and cutouts  (K GT had quad tips)
   Shelby GT350 had difference valance versions and two different bologna tip versions
S code- dual exhaust w/turndowns
S code GT - dual exhaust and cutouts w/quad tips
   Shelby 428 GT500 had difference valance versions and two different bologna tips

[on edit - strike out K code non-GT]

In summarizing the Exhaust Options for 1967, we should not ignore the Dealer Option/ Accessory Dual Exhaust System (Part # C5ZZ-5210-A) that was available from 1965-68 for all Single Exhaust 260, 289 and 302's. The turned down tips were included with this Kit. This showed up as an Accessory for Mustangs in late 1965,and is noted as such in the 1967 MPC and in the 1960-68 MPC. It was also promoted in the 1966 Ford High Performance Catalog. Its list price was a "whopping" $58.45, not including installation.

Drivetrain / "SPEC" instead of date code on exhaust manifold?

What would be the meaning of "SPEC" where the date code would normally be on a C6OE-9430-A 390GT exhaust manifold?  Is it an early prototype thing or a does it denote "special" for a special application?  Or something completely different?

1967 - 1968 / Re: 1967 seat belt warning light relay

 And to add to this post, this was quite a pain because of the tilt wheel pieces and the car having the floor console! Replacement was totally done blind.  ;D
1967 - 1968 / Re: 1967 seat belt warning light relay

 I just went to the garage and replaced the seatbelt warning light relay on my 67. To my surprise it was a cylindrical type relay with autolite stamping and C7AB part number. Havenít seen these available so Iím assuming this was an early style or oddball 67 year feature? I did replace it with a C7AB relay but the rectangular shaped version. Either way the seatbelt light works fine now.
  Here are a few pics of the cylindrical 67 relay, which I believe to be original to this car, and the rectangular type which in this case is an NOS D2AB model for comparison.
Read it again. It is written "2 (a space is present on the size/dimension column of the spreadsheet) 45/64OAL (overall length)".
(There is no "dash -" between 1 and 3/16.)

Jim, I wondered if it was overall length but the numbers do not seem to make any clear sense to me. After viewing and measuring an original, and if I understand correctly, this (your description) would then read "2 AND 45/64ths overall length" then? (slightly over 2-1/2"? ~actual measurement slightly UNDER 2-1/2" ~see attached picture) The loop inside the strap is very close to 1 3/16 inch diameter, so in my previous comment/question, I took a bit of liberty and "inserted the 'dash'" because that works within "my brain" to connect the "2" to the "fraction". Sorry to confuse things if I did.

The Borrowed one has arrived today and I am studying the dimensions and surface finishes. The metal strap, if it were to be rolled out and laid flat on the the desk, measures 7/8 inch wide by 6 inches long. (I cut a 7/8ths inch wide piece of paper and wrapped around the outside of the metal to determine the overall length of the strap) The 90 degree Bend in the loop, is also approximately 7/8th of an inch from the end. The holes measure very close to 1/2 inch diameter.

Inside of the loop, there was a good stretch of the rubber coating. Underneath the coating, it appears to have a green tint to the finish. Everywhere else looks to be over natural steel with some signs of having been painted perhaps.

I have attached some pictures.
1967 - 1968 / Re: 67 Decor Group seat side plastic w/chrome
« Last post by Bossbill on Today at 12:55:20 PM »
Thanks for the honest opinions!

Opening some of my plastic storage boxes is a bit like Christmas and Halloween.
Pure joy at seeing some things and how nice they are -- utter horror at others.

Anyone have any luck with plastic repair on these?
I have a combination of some goobered attempts at creating a 5th hole and instead they created a 7 hole; some issues at the front holes; and a broken tab in the rear.
I think it's something I picked up along the way as both of my seats are 4 hole.
Thankfully the chrome is still in excellent nic (always wanted to use that word -- wonder how you spell it?).

I assume the passenger side is much more common as I found an excellent spare with chrome for that side. Time to hit the ads.

[on edit -- I always edit, so get used to it! Clear up one sentence to be clearer]
