Re: 73 Montego @ auction

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

Many Blue Moons ago when MU was first trying to sell the car ($90K) I had a lengthy discussion with the owner of MU. He said the rear bars had been added by a PO and thought they might offer them someday. But looks like they only repop'd the fronts. The pictures of the HFII are from me, that I took ...

Re: Electric cooling fans

You should get a thermo scanner and check the radiator for cold spots which could mean blockage. Do you have an NOS or original Ford temperature sensor in the intake. The auto parts ones all read high.

It could be. Any chance that you would be interested in investing in it? I own Desert Classic Parts and do many of the Cougar parts that are currently being reproduced.

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

I haven't seen any other VIN locations on 67/68s and I've cut them up over the years. I have seen a VIN on a 69 Mach 1 (after media blasting) on the driver side rear frame rail just where it straightened out along the gas tank close to the flange.

Re: 67-73 Cougar Sequential Turn Signal Trouble Shooting Thread

I have come across these symptoms in the last few years and found 3 bad emergency flasher switches which are part of the turn switch assembly. I have drilled the rivets out on one and took it apart. The copper contacts inside had a corroded worn down surface like bad ignition points and the sliding ...

which did originally have AC but is currently missing many of the parts.
What parts are missing? It could be more cost effective to get those parts instead of doing a refit.

Re: A/C Fixed, Cabin Air Not Cold

You should have a valve in the heater hose under the hood up against the firewall(usually gold colored) to shutoff the flow of hot water to the core. If there you need to check the vacuum going to it from the blend door valve. Usually with only air coming out of the defrost the vacuum system is not ...

Re: '69 A/C Help Needed

I have switched to this after using up my R-12 stash. https://www.refrigerantdepot.com/products/refrigerants-supply/frigc-fr-12/ One of the small cans gives way better cooling then standard R-12 and there is no regulations or certified people to install it. I converted my house A/C over to FR-22 and...
