Ford-style "series" Tachometer testing

I recently completed a new project so I thought I'd share some of the development information - a stand-alone Ford Tachometer Tester. Over the next few months I will be developing several new tester products. I'd like to share the development information with the Cougar Community because some of thi...

Re: Everything you wanted to know about '67 Sequential Signals

My original post on this problem was back around Feb 20th. At that time I had no turn signals and my brake lights only worked on the outside taillights on my 68. I have since ordered and installed the electronic unit in the trunk. My turn signals are working fine now for both left and right. Now I ...

Re: Everything you wanted to know about '67 Sequential Signals

Bill or Jack, So I had the K7 relay open last night to see if I could figure out how it needed to be tweaked to get it to function. Is there more detail on this somewhere? .. It is very hard to adjust this relay with out a bench setup that uses an adjustable power supply. Basically, you need to ben...

Re: Rear defrost wire?

That is an interesting idea! You could use the wire to feed a power amp if you use a switch (or jumper) to connect the 257 (yellow) power wire to the 186 (brown) direct feed wire. The 260 (red/black) wire has a 23 ohm resistor top operate the defogger motor on the slow speed. Recognize that these ar...

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

A couple of clues indicate that this system may have been modified: 1. Red glue around the motor of the sequential flasher. 2. An extra brown wire leading from inside the sequential flasher. I suspect that the wiring has been modified to cause all the lights to flash together because one or more con...

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

Scott -
During the original Ford sequencer production, the board design changed so that the emergency flashers were changed from "all flash together" to sequential operation. If your emergency flashers sequence, you will need a D0WY-13350-AR flasher, if not, a standard flasher will work.
