I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

Anybody know if 66 350 H came in white with gold stripes? I always thought they only came in black with gold or white with blue. The one I've got is white with gold. I did a bare metal strip and repaint and if it was a repaint I can't tell.It's also got a Paxton on it. I freshened it up, forged pistons and rods, cam. shaft mounted Jesel roller rockers, etc. It's dynoing about 585, and I love driving it. It's gonna get me in trouble. Thanks, if anybody knows about the paint.

I placed an order and paid for the License plate holder that is listed on this site on the 15th & to date I have not gotten any shipping info. Also sent an email with no response. Any suggestions? It is through registry market place.
They refunded my money, but I really wanted the license plate holder. I will look elsewhere I guess.

Unless you already have, I would post this under racing ..... but I think you will be fine. I am sure your not the first GT350 to run that track.

I have a 2017 GT350 (2100 miles) that has developed a clunk / squeak in the passenger side rear suspension. Local ford dealer thought it was the right rear shock.. ordered same, installed it which seamed to have stopped the noise. It has returned again after just a 100 or so miles. Has anyone heard / experienced this problem? I haven't seen a TSB on this. Any insight appreciated.

Not sure but I've noticed a clunk when I pull out of my garage backwards. I think it might be that 'Hill Holder' option sticking...

One of the first things I did was turn off the hill holder.  It would activate even on slight inclines and prevent smooth acceleration before clunking loose.  I've been driving sticks since high school, so I figure I don't need a hill holder at this stage.   :clap:

 

I also get a clunk sometimes when backing out.  I know in my case, it's not the hill holder since it's turned off.  It seems to the brake pads that stick to the rotors.  Usually it happens when the car sits overnight after a wash or enough rain to thoroughly wet the rotors.  It can take a fair amount of throttle to break them loose.  Seems to be less pronounced if I leave the hand brake off.  Had a similar thing occur in my GTI.

Thanks for the responses. But.. It's much more of a squeak type noise. Not fill holder or e brake. My guess is / are suspension bushing or something similar. ..? As the replacement shock wasn't the issue.

the brakes do catch when the car has been sitting for a while .... and I didnt know you had the option of turning off the hill break. I love it on and it helps on those gentle slopes and gives u 

a few seconds to transition from the brake to the gas.

 

Your clunk if its that noticable, have you taken to your Ford store to see if they can find anything loose ?

my service folks told me that even the GT have the same issue- it's mainly due to having the parking brake on after a while. You really have to gas it to break free- almost feel like I am going to crack the axle!

I've read through the GT350 supplement, but don't recall coming across; how to you turn off the hill holder function?

It's in the main Mustang manual, but not the supplement.  It's called "Hill Start Assist" and in the "Brakes" section.

Well it's still squeaking. This is after many months and 4 service visits.
To date repairs include:
a right rear shock replacement,
a spring bushing replacement and
a sway bar bushing replacement.
Current status.... the shelby is back with me (yea!) and we the local ford dealer is waiting on another call back and diagnostic from the engineers at ford.

I've seen it before just scroll through the options and u will find it and just turn it off. I love it .... slight incline and the car doesn't roll back until you have enough time to touch the gas

It’s been resolved. I gave it a month or so to ensure squeak was really gone. Ford replaced all rear shock and sway bar bushings. That finally did the trick.
