Lets build a 1967 e type together


(j limongelli) #1

Well I just picked up the coupe…Last of the covered headlights.
It was in my driveway at 10 am and by 12 the pump, hoses and everything else has been taken out of the trunk.
With 72,000 original miles its great and not butchered.
It will be my next 30 year driver…So lets do it!
I was to tired for the tank but looks real tight.
The last three ive done I never removed the bracket on the bulk head.
Any ideas?
New pump, injection hose and all on the way……
Lets have fun!

(1967 FHC) #2

Build date or number? My 67 FHC was built on 11/15/66 with a dispatch date of January 2 so needless to say I am very familiar with the last of the covered headlights.

Sent from my computer…
Look at the original primrose in the trunk and all. The car was repainted bout 28 years ago.
Tonight while waiting for the parts, will glue back the batting , change the front fuel filter and front fuel line.
Once again I WILL PREACH ETHANOL GAS HORROR STORIES.
The tank looked OK but once removed a film of yellow had coated the tanks and fuel bowl,
The previuos owner was complaining about hesitation and all that.
There was rust in the tank as well. Not bad but enough.
I put a can of vr racing fuel to the pump and bypassed the system, GEE it ran like BUTTA!
So replacing everything, so I don’t have to worry for the next 30 years.

Will vacuum the boot and wax out tonite as well…
How do I remove that horrible from brack for the plate?
Do I have to take all the pan screws out?

???

Did you also get that Cobra in the trailer ?


#16

Replacing also the metal fuel line that runs under the car to the engine? Mine looked “fine” till it started leaking from a rusted area.

Nice friends on the truck!
There were two PROTOTYPE F PACE TRUCKS I COULDNT SHOW YOU…
The steel fuel line will go once we drop the rear in a month or so, when we switch to 307 gears…
Fun Fun Fun…

but the damn plate is the worst.


(Jerry Mills) #18

Looked at pictures again. Still don’t know what plate.


(j limongelli) #19

Front liscense plate bracket in first picture.
Its held by 2 nuts


(j limongelli) #20


Easy way to remove the rest of the gas without a mess
Note an inline Plastic filter with Heated plastic shrink line in the trunk!
Oh boy did that say fire?
All going for fuel injection hose and clamps!


(Jerry Mills) #21

Yep, gotta pull that lower air duct panel. (BD16557)


(j limongelli) #22

That’s the panel with the six or eight screws, the flat piece in the center behind the center bar?


(Jerry Mills) #23

Yes, that’s it.
