    Does anyone know if there is a way to tell (Anything visual) whether a particular special handling spring with 8 1/4 coils is part #c5zz-5310-e that was supposedly 1491 lb rated spring that was typical for converts vs part # c5zz-5310-f that also had 8 1/4 coils and was rated at 1413lbs and most common on f/b and coupes?

    I’m hunting for an original HP engine manifold tag for 4spd Mustang with manual trans and 6B date. I know repros are available but am collecting parts for a t-bred. Hopefully someone has a non-original engine in their Kar and won’t mind parting with a tag. I do have a 5M dated tag I can trade for 6B as well.

    Outstanding job Quentin! You're fortunate to have met and talked with the original owner of your hi-po. I'm sure you've learn a lot about the car's history that helped you restore it along the way. Congrats.

    I have an extra NOS 4201S '66 fuel pump that I won't be using for my project. Date is 4/27/67. I don't have the box or the gasket that would have come with the pump from Ford, but it's new, never rebuilt and never mounted on a car. $1,400.

    After I'd received the single from Bob Allen, I had a few questions about the other 7 to make sure they would make a match set. Couldn't get them answered and was put in a spot to take it or leave it with a few hours to decide. I had to unfortunately pass on them.

    I've ordered the single piston from Bob Allen Ford, and made arrangements with Dan for the 7 others he has. Bill at Bob Allen says it's in their wharehouse. We'll see if it makes it to my doorstep later this week. Thanks for the lead, whether I get the part or not!

    It is a 5 blade clutch fan with the specs that you've mentioned. Bob Mannel's book references it for use on 6cyl cars. There is also an appendix on fan blades and referrences this with the special uses as I've described. I'm not sure what I have and am hoping someone will recognize it and/or could use it. Thanks for looking this up.

    I know this is more of a Mustang forum, but I went to a Ford dealer garage sale a few years ago grabbing parts at random because they were cheap. I went through a parts book and see I may have a '65 clutch fan blade. Left the Part # at home, but think it is C3OZ-8600-D in Fomoco box. The book indicates it was possibly used on the first 1000 '65 Comet units and on hi-po Comets when the vicious power option was asked for. Any ideas on a market value on this piece? Probably a tough part if your looking for one, but I'd suspect it's a limited market.

    Tom and I have early Fomoco boxed bellhousings. Mine has a spot of orange paint about 2 or 3 inches in diameter right behind where the starter goes. I was not aware that there was any difference in bellhousings used for a hi-po than a standard 289 car. Anyone know why mine would have orange paint and Tom's does not? I have a photo I could post if I knew how to post it. Part # on my bellhousing is C5AA-6394-B, and part #s on box are C5AZ-6392-A, C5AA-6392-B? or D?

    I believe the date on the 64-67 hi-po bell housing is located on the inside as the year only. C5 part # on an outside edge. At least the NOS piece I have is that way. Once installed, no way to tell what date the piece is. Unless your taking photos of the date to display with the car, I don't beleive there are any visual differences between which year housing you have. If any one has a housing dated on the outside, I'd be interested to learn about it.
