Re: Paint color

I was going to say... Door Tag shows DSO 84. Just thinking hypothetically here, but as a Ford Test Vehicle with a build date well before Eliminator production... Is it possible that this was an Eliminator test car done for magazines and / or promo pics? I mean, jeez, it even has the Eliminator rock...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

I have parted out quite a few Cougars over the past 35 years and I do not recall ever having one with screws holding the VIN tag to the dash. Of course back in the early days I doubt that I would have paid much attention to screws even if they were there. So I do have a few questions about these ca...

Re: 70 Cougar for sale

Could you give prospective buyers a little more information on the car. Is this an "H" code 351 2V car or a "M" code 351 4V? What has been done to the power train> Ect. Looks like a nice clone.

Re: Cobra Jet distributor D0ZF-12127-C 1970 428CJ 4 speed

Date would be good for my CJ Cougar. But mine is a automatic with A/C. Good luck with the sale. It might be good for Mike Banks Eliminator.

Badcatt, my question is should it be pulling vacuum FROM the distributor? I unhooked it from the carb when it idling in park and there is no vacuum. I thought there would be.
Yes it should have vacuum at idle.

Re: Carb/Vacuum question

I think your vacuum line may be attached to the wrong port on the carburetor. I don't know edelbrock carbs very well, but I remember seeing several vacuum ports on them.

Re: Dash and headlights flash on and off

There is a circuit breaker in the headlight switch. If you have halogen headlight bulbs they draw too much current and yield the results that you describe. If you don't have halogen headlights then the switch needs to be replaced due to a weak circuit breaker. The circuit breaker go get week over t...

Re: location of sequential flasher can


The first diagram does not have a few of the XR-7 and GT items on it. This one should fill in any blanks. I have a full set of factory wiring diagrams for 1970 and 1971. I have some from 1969.

Re: location of sequential flasher can


This is what the 71 Wiring diagram shows for location(I'm pointing with a green pin. I had the panel down in mine last winter checking to make sure there were no problems.
