Tinman, We should have had more about you in there! It sounds like the two of you were up to no good most of the time. LOL!

Re: hi guys

My first Cougar was a lime frost '67 standard with manual drum brakes and manual steering. It was a blast to drive, but you had to man up a bit with no power boost. I'd like to drive the same car with the 3 speed manual, sort of back to basics driving.

Knowing that, Randy will cut you one whale of a deal... Heck I think Randy's might even be free. So will Don have to pay you to take his?

Re: Aftermarket Rack and Pinion Steering

I had two identical '68 Cougars one with TCP power rack and one with a newly rebuilt factory box. The only real difference was that the rack and pinion would not turn anywhere near as sharp as the stock set up. It is much easier and less expensive to just fix what you have.
