My last post needs amended:
First, I found my Ass., Man.! (yes, it took both hands)  ;D
Finding the assembly manual helped a great deal regarding any possible need for the aforementioned clip. I actually need what looks like quantity of 5, 352541-S100 and a couple of the 352542-S100 clips, both which are readily available at AMK...

I don't believe AMK sells the correct 65-66 ones.  I usually get originals re-plated or find ones good enough to re-use.  They have the same style sealer on the back of them, so it squeezes out on install like Jeff's pics show.

I'm installing a 1 inch front stabilizer bar on a 65 fastback and have a couple of questions.

I have a set of the original size end links and a set of end links that have a much longer sleeve.

1. Which set of end links should I install?

2. What is the proper method to adjust the stabilizer bar, there is quite a bit of movement in the slotted center mounts. Thank you very much guys.
It sounds like you have a after market 1" bar . The best comparison I can use is the GT 350 which used a 1" sway bar. Since the 65 GT 350 had a spectacular racing history with the 1" bar the specs for it should be good enough for you. The 65 GT 350 with the one inch bar used the same regular Mustang short end link tubes.  67-70 used the longer end link tube with the thick bar. There was no adjustment when bolted up on the 1 " GT350 bar just like there is no adjustment on the smaller regular Mustang bar although the 1" bar center brackets were larger for a larger bushing compared to the regular Mustang smaller brackets. Nether were slotted. Most likely bolt it up take any slack out and bolt it down. I do not know why your center mounts are slotted. The factory GT350 set up didn't need any adjustment so I don't know why the after market one would.  Virginia Mustang sells a exact copy of the Shelby 1" bar center bushing bracket and bushings so you can go online and take a look and compare. The factory brackets only take factory rubber bushings. The different aftermarket bushings (most are harder poly urethane ) must use the aftermarket bracket.

Thanks Jeff!   I knew you would know what I was referring to with out posting a picture.   I did a bunch of digging last night in a few buckets of bolts and nuts I have,  I found eight of nuts that you show in the last picture posted, the small washer style. I found one of the large washer style.  So it looks like the large washer style is what I am looking for.  So thanks for posting the picture.  I'll take a picture of the one I have and hopefully someone will have some I can purchase!   Thanks!

Yes... Something like that....

I was pretty Psyched...!!

There's like no documentation anywhere in books or on the web on how to get the Outer Camfer and Inner Cog out...  I tried using small picks, probes, dental tools and turning the motor upside down and even shaking it to no avail... In the end, It was a really strong magnet that did the trick!!

Looks good.

Did you bust out singing "I just want to celebrate" when you were done?

Success!!!  :o)

I found a sure fire method to remove the Outer Camfer and the Inner Cog all as one unit to get to the Inner Shaft and Center "O" ring to be able to replace it.  Check it out Below..!! I used the most powerful Shop Rare Earth Magnet that I had on hand in the garage...It worked like a charm!  All my other previous attempts failed and were delicately tried with no success until I came up with this method.  Keep in mind that if you are rebuilding a Power Top Motor and replacing seals as I did here, If there is rust inside the cavity....You won't get the center out no matter what...but if its relatively clean and rust free, You have a good shot at it as I did here.. See both pics below, and the tool that I used..!!  This should help quite a few people here who attempt to try to replace the Power Top Pump inner shaft seal in the future. If you look at the first pic, You can plainly see the inner shaft seal that requires replacement....every 50 or so years!

I have had a member request availability of this harness plastic wire retainer I removed from a 68 LTD,  off of the driver side inner fender.

My concern at this moment is if it has any 1967 Mustang applications. If I do need it for my rebuild, I then certainly wouldn't want to let it go. If not, it will be going to that fellow member. The only place I could figure it MIGHT go on a 67 would be near the Battery or under the Battery or perhaps at the Alternator wiring. I seem to recall a similar couple under the dash, up high in the kick panel but I do not think this is one of those clips. (I temporarily lost my Electrical Assembly Manual too!)

As with many other items pictured in the first post, I am simply trying locate a few items I needed, while also trying to establish any applications of these items onto any other vintage Mustangs. It would also be a great bi-product if by chance it also could help others in locating some of these pieces themselves (as in what vehicles I located these items on).
