Sheryl,
I need a pic of the 735 carb on your Vert in the area of the pics I took of your GT/CS carb. I want to see if the 735 has the same screws in its throttle plate.

Dan if you look close does the plug seem to have a flat blade cut in it for a screwdriver to turn it?

Sheryl,
I need a close up of the "front" studs that hold your car to the manifold. You took pics of the back ones. Low enough to see the throttle plate about 1 inch in from the stud itself. You can see the angle on the pics I took of your carb for Gem which will ship out to you tomorrow!!

Rob,
Would you have any use for a dusty old 4300? Maybe for parts if nothing else?

Dan,
Interesting. Eric's and Sheryl's carb have the screw slots. Just when you think you see a pattern..... The fact that you have the plugs ensures me that your carbs throttle plate is original. This area on later carbs is not drilled. This is cool stuff!

Well I finally finished the 1968 Mustang six shooter coupe. I need to take a few more pics, but this car was totally restored by me with the exception of the rear end. All new suspension, brakes, engine, tranny, interior, vinyl top, all chrome, radio and speakers, heater box and core, dash. EVERYTHING! I stopped the bleeding at 200 hours of labor.

I will get some better pics after we get the style steel wheels that are on back order. Engine and tranny are vin number stamped. This car runs like butter and the soft stock ride is a pleasure. The owner looks awesome driving it!!
