The studs are set screws  and the scoop has threaded inserts. The 69 scoop has one piece threaded insert and stud combined.

I think it was all precipitated by the strike at the beginning of the '68 model year. The Cougar GT-E package was going to generate more income from the 500 427 W code engines on hand, due to higher prices for the GT-E option compared to the engine in any other car line. I suspect most any decision at Ford was linked to dollars and cents more than anything lese.

Looks like a plan! Thanks Royce! Have never met you but I always enjoy reading your posts and have seen you participate in an interview on one of the "car show" programs a while back talking about the "W" code Cougars. Anyway, was at the FERR in Beaver Springs, PA a few weeks back and saw TWO GT-E W code Cougars there. Very rare for me to run across one, but TWO! One red and one blue. Very nice.  Never understood why that engine combo never made it into the Mustang. Maybe Ford didnt want it to take away publicity  (interpret that to money) to the newly developed CJ package??

Ok, so my question still remains from my OP, does anyone have any information on who this guy is?

As far as the the testing of the KR8 engine and drivetrain i don't know how many have seen the data that Lightwtjet posted but here is the PDF he sent me. The KR8 was the only car to that date that went 700 ft plus in the 10 sec test.

Wow - that's great reading!! You can imagine the frustration at the series of cars they had that were 'performance' 390's and they weren't impressive considering the Tasca car. Even the 427 Cougar didn't appear to have much to offer, but the most significant thing was the difference in performance that a 3.50 gave over a 3.25!

There may be an easy way to check - remove the lens, re-assemble the cluster then use blutak (or similar) to add a small amount of weight to the opposite side of the disc that you see from the front - the disc that the needle is attached to (I think) should offset the weight of the paint.

See if that makes it better or worse.

Is a stud with a hex in the center held with a nut correct for holding the scoop on the hood ?

For what its worth, I just picked up a restored correct 11 !/2" clutch setup for my 67 project. A bit more expensive than an aftermarket setup but I am confident it will fit and work just like original. Just another option you may want to consider. I plan to use the roller bearing modifications on the pedal shaft.
