Re: 1967 390 GT (with smog) belt routing help needed

Mine has AC so it doesn’t go around the water pump. Your smog belt pulley will go on the water pump vs ac pump. Water pump will be three grooves. So would just go around the outer groove on both water pump and crank and round the emission pump which will adjust to tighten the belt. My AC pump is rem...

Re: Suggestions valve adj. on unknown solid? cam

Re: S Code Candidate

The "body fitment & bondo issues" would be the deciding factor if it's a good deal or money pit. Some interior parts can be hard to find and expensive. Also, the end goal what you want for a Cougar comes into play.

Re: Suggestions valve adj. on unknown solid? cam

Like 67427GT500 said if you have non rail roller tip rockers you will have guide plates to maintain alignment regardless if it's a solid or hydraulic lifters. Do you have a dial indicator with a magnetic base? If not it's a good tool to have in the tool box. Put the dial indicator on the rocker arm ...
