    1969 Shelby GT350H Build

    But before the Power Steering issue, I finished up the battery install, you can see the radiator overflow in front of the battery as well: Installed the steering column and adjusted the steering box: Changed the break-in oil, cut open the filter and looked at the element and debris that got left in the filter: And started cleaning my rims. The one on the right has been cleaned, the one on the left, not yet:

    1969 Shelby GT350H Build

    What would make the power steering fluid get so hot that it would melt the plastic pieces in the power steering control valve? The power steering pump is the one that I got with the car back in 1981. It's not making any noise, not leaking, and topped off with fluid. The Control Valve is a new rebuilt I purchased about a year ago and put on the car recently. I did not know I had a problem as when I was breaking in the cam I never tried to steer the car. I started it up today and wanted to test the steering. It moved a little stiffly from lock to lock at first, then got better after a few turns. But when I got out of the car, I found it had squirted fluid out of the end of the control valve end cap all over the ground. When things cooled down I pulled the cap and found this:

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    Sounds like a deal. I already have a domain name that I have pointed to my home account, where I have my personal WEB server running. Keeping it running, running backups, and having a totally spare backup server is a pain. It might be worth $8 a month to let someone else worry about the hardware.

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    Redshost.com will not be down tomorrow while I change the server's power supply as I will be simply switching over to my backup server while the maintenance is being performed. Nobody will even know anything happened. :-) Yea, the geeks may understand...

    Burning up Coils

    Honestly, the message was for the OP, LiLMike as he did not state what electronic ignition he is using, just that his coil voltage drops down to 9.8v. I have the Ignitor III and Flamethrower, and want that stock look.

    Tow Hook/Straps

    I had forgotten about that post on Concoursmustang forum. But, the OP is asking about Tow hooks, not tie down points. There is mention of using the J hook on the front frame, but I do not know what spot is used, and if it or a strap would clear the body if used as a tow point?

    Burning up Coils

    The Pertronix Ignitor units require 12v while running. Most of those who have had failures were still using the factory resistor wire from the ignition switch which drops the voltage. Another issue is not using a matching FlameThrower coil with 1.5 ohm resistance, though Pertronix also states "The Ignitor III is compatible with coils having a resistance of 0.32 ohms or greater". All other resistors (including the resistor wire) should be removed. Pertronix still warns to NOT leave the ignition on while not running the engine for extended periods of time with the I and II units. However, I do not see this warning with the Ignitor III unit. The Ignitor III needs to be powered on to set the internal RPM limiter. http://www.pertronix.com/docs/instruction-sheets/1181.pdf http://www.pertronix.com/docs/instruction-sheets/1281.pdf Sorry, I'm not trying to derail if you are not using a Pertronix Ignitor unit in your distributor.

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    Dont know if the Admin had the opportunity to save any of the photos that were lost, or if they were just deleted for space. My avatar along with others is gone. I'll have to see if I can just link one instead of uploading one. Sorry to all those that lost the images in their build threads. The photos in my thread that I posted are still there, as they are only links to my personal photo gallery. Others that posted photos to my build, well, they are gone. yes, I know it is quite annoying. As mentioned, I can also see the issue with trying to rebuild the threads or start new ones knowing that this issue can arise again. But then look what PhotoBucket did to those that were using them to host their pictures. So I am not sure what the real solution is. I do know that someone has to foot the bill to pay for the storage. So is that the members or the forum. And if the forum, how much advertising are you willing to put up with?

    Tow Hook/Straps

    Following this. I have been using an axel strap around the sway bar. I'm sure that is not the best thing for the sway bar bushings. Good thing I've only done it with the car stripped down.

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    Just try to follow a build or two on the FB version, its all over the place. So many non qualified that give their personal opinion on subjects they really have very little knowledge on. As I said, it's just my personal opinion, I don't like it. No problem if you do, so do 24,754 Members +694 in the last 30 days https://www.facebook.com/groups/vintagemustangforum//

    So we need to host more of our own images? :-) How much more per month to get more storage space?

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    I personally don't like FB groups over forums for subject matter like what we have here. This is much more organized, searchable, personable. VMF started a FB page a while back, and I refuse to join it. just my $.02

    1969 Shelby GT350H Build

    New starter works great. It started right up and I was able to finish the 30 minute cam break-in. At one point, some white smoke came out of the exhaust, and then quit. I changed the oil and filter. Cut open the filter and did not find any shiny objects. More recently, a friend stopped by and I ran the engine again, for the 3rd time for him. Once again, white smoke came out of the exhaust for a little bit. You can see it in the following video. Otherwise it seems to be running great. http://redshost.com/media/GT350R3rdRun/

    69 factory label decal placement?

    I try to look at several Concours restored cars and see what they have where. You'r going to end to tossing a few of those decals you purchased in the kit as well. Beware, not everything you see is correct. Here is one I use for reference for many items. Some decals and locations might vary depending on assembly plant. http://photos.mustangsbymike.com/Mach-1-Candy-Apple-Red.
