Wanted to Buy / 67 GT500 Pulleys

Hi guys, My Swedish friend Roland is looking for a set of original pulleys for his 67 GT500.
Crankshaft pulley with three grooves for belts and the Water Pump pulley with two grooves for belts.
Thanks for any help to locate these items.

Hi Paul,
I believe the pump you need is #4201 with the button on the top and no fuel bowl like the 65 and first 252

923 has black ducts.

This is a NOS kit I bought in Sweden more than 40 years ago.
The hoses are too short for unknown reasons.

Sending a couple of pictures of an automatic 67 GT350 3259 carburetor. Have a copy of a letter from SA
saying that all cars after 6S800 will be equipped with the Autolite carb.

Are you talking about the Thermactor system?

6S923 original 3259 is dated 581.

What I have been told is that the GT350 valve showed 8 treads and was painted black.
The one that came in my car (5S275) when I bought it in Feb.1988 is dated 39-5.
Never checked the treads on it when replaced it in 1990. Don't remember if it was black or just rusty.
My Swedish friend rebuilt the original and I painted it black and adjusted it to 8 treads.
Haven't put it into the car yet.

Hi Bob,
I was mistaken. The article was in The Shelby American, Sept-Oct 1979, Volume 4 Nuber 5, Page 9.
It was sent to Jeff Burgy by Roger Hodyka

Hi Paul,
Have you changed the area code in your phone number or just fat fingers.

If I were you, I would make sure I had the 6-inch Idler arm and Pitman arm respectively before ordering any replacements.

I had a similar problem on my 3259 and it turned out to be the adjustment of the flaps. It sucked gas through the groove
and I adjusted the flaps with the tiny screw that can only be seen with the carb turned upside down.
After that the carb has worked fine and reacting to the idle screws.

Hi guys,
I have attached a page showing the rear brake parts for 65/66 GT350's. It was published in "The Marque" in the end of the seventies or beginning of the eighties. Don't know if I am correct on the name but I believe it was Roger Hodyka.
