1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Hipo 289 spark plugs
June 04, 2024, 10:17:44 PM
Would a Motorcraft BF 32 be a suitable spark plug for a street driven HiPo 289? If not, what's the consensus on currently available spark plugs to use in a HiPo? Thank you, Paul.

Would an early,(mid 300)post carryover 66 GT 350, use a fuel pump with integral screw on fuel filter like a 65? Thanks, Paul.

Would anyone know where I could get a dashpot. Even if not original, if it improves reliability/road worthiness, I'd be ok using one.

When I got the carb back from Drew, I adjusted it to the engine and set the timing using the max vacuum as target. It is pulling about 16.5 inches now from the PCV port at the back of the intake.

I will check the lines to the transmission next. Could the vacuum lines to the transmission and/or the modulator be leaking and still allow the 16.5" of vacuum at the PCV port?

Drew does excellent work, the carb performs exceptionally.

Thanks guys, Paul

No dashpot on carb now. Had one on it that was falling apart when I sent it off for rebuild and it came back without it. I asked Drew about it and he was under the impression it was not normally used on a LIST 3259. It was returned in the box but doesn't look serviceable, boot disintegrated and spring showing. I'd be willing to put one on if I could find a source.

I will bump up the idle a bit. I believe the engine and transmission have never been out of the car. I'll do some research and see if any work has been done to the transmission/torque converter.
Thanks for the input, Paul.

Automatic 66 GT 350. Rebuilt LIST 3259(by Drew). Engine is in time, good vacuum, nice idle, strong acceleration without hesitation/dead spots, no pinging, no starter drag when restarting after engine is warm.
At red light/stop signs, when in DRIVE rpm drops off and engine dies. Any suggestions how to fix? Thank you, Paul.
Greg, I will purchase the carb. PM sent. Thank you, Paul Marvin.
Just fat fingered it. I'll fix it, thanks Bo.
Thanks for checking, Paul.
I need one spring typically used with 65/66 fiberglass hood application. Thank you, Paul @ 817-691-0159.
