This is for all you folks who have 1965-1966 Mustangs with V8 engines. Could you all take a look at your engine's driver side valve cover and tell me if there are little wire clips attached the the valve cover bolts along the top edge? These clips hold the engine wiring harness for the oil sending unit. WHAT DO THESE CLIPS LOOK LIKE? I need to know what the CORRECT wire clips look like so I can hunt some of them down. I know the clip on the valve cover bolt just above the oil sending unit is rubber-coated, but I saw a Mustang the other day with plain metal clips along the top of the valve cover. What do you guys/gals have?

I think that guy probably originally had rubber coated clips. The rubber coating cracks off over time, at least that's what I've seen. I'd bet on you needing the coated ones.

Thanks for your answer...yeah, I was wondering if that was the case. But I would like to hear from someone else, in case they have something different to say. Does anyone else have some other info? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

My 65 Fastback A code 289 had the rubber coated clips on it. In fact, I might still have them. If you are interested I will look and see if they are in the can that I put all that stuff in when I stripped the car originally. [email protected]

Andy,

Look in the NPD catalog under wiring harnesses and you will find them listed under wiring retainer, Oil sending unit wire J-clip part number 353547-s2k. I think this is what you are looking for.
