1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / 66 Alternator Gauge Issue
March 17, 2023, 03:34:39 PM
My alternator gauge jumps around while I am driving. While idling, it is ok. When I give her the get up and go the needle jumps and flutters around.

Anyone have any ideas how to resolve the issue? I have the standard 42 amp alternator and Marti voltage regulator if that helps. No other issues. Another fellow reached out to me saying he has the same issue. Thoughts???

Wanted to Buy / 2 1/2 K/H Brake Drum

PM me if you have one. Thank you.

Appeals / Cracked KH Brake Drum
January 27, 2023, 08:36:52 AM
I have this original KH brake drum. During the course of my annual check and cleaning of the brake system, I noticed this hairline crack [see photo]. There was no issue in braking, but I felt prudent to remove it and replace both drums with some American made racing drums from Cobra Automotive.

OK, me question is can this drum be repaired??? If not, does anyone have an extra, just 1 that they might turn loose of??? My car is an early 66 model [406].

Thanks for looking,

Services Offered / Small Parts Painting
August 05, 2022, 07:40:53 AM
I have an original 5A air cleaner base that needs professional painting - Ford Blue. I have tried for years and just cannot get it right. If any of the restores is shooting some Ford Blue, I would really appreciate having a shout out to have it done CORRECTLY. The paint has been removed and it is ready for primer or whatever the process is.

Thanks for looking!


Looking to buy the correct OEM four [4] transmission to bell housing bolts. Attached is a photo of the one I removed that I am sure is not OEM or correct. Can someone please post a picture of the correct bolt if no one has any to part with? Thanks in advance.

All the best,


Does anyone have a spare radio OEM Ford radio speaker??? NOS would be better but since I have a project going on under the dash [changing out heater core...ugh], I thought it would be nice to tackle this task. The radio is original to 406 so OK there. Does not have to be perfect but must work!

Thanks again,

Would like to purchase a NOS complete lighter assembly for a 66...socket and plug if available.

Hi, my quarter panel aluminum trim is starting to oxidize in multiple places.  I would like to remove them to clean them up by sanding away the oxidation and subsequently polishing the aluminum.  Is there a trick to removing them without damaging the paint???  I have the article from Mustang Monthly on how to properly install them but I need to remove them without causing any damage...if possible!  Thanks for looking!

All the best, Steve
Would love to find a C5OZ-17260-A [4-speed] speedometer cable.  Prefer an NOS but would like a great used one as well.

Thanks for looking.

Cheers, Steve

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Horse Placement on Grille
March 15, 2018, 08:20:30 AM
In the old forum 1.0, there were some dimensions and photos of the placement of the horse on the grille.  There were also some mention of a RH horsie on grilles but the standard being the LH version.  Hey Cory, you provided some invaluable input that I would like to reference...with pictures.  Can you please repost for us tinkerers???

Thanks again,

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Starter Solenoid Goop color
January 22, 2018, 08:24:59 AM
Hi all and welcome back!  I was going to add some color to the top of my solenoid like some of you have done.  One guy used Testors paint color and another had some insulation varnish from MG Chemicals [I did save that link].  However, I am looking to duplicate it with the Testors color.  Will the dude that did in please let me know the color???

Thanks again,
