Re: Fuel Sending unit O- ring issue

In looking at the picture, your locking ring looks larger than the one that I have? I can easily move both the sending unit and the locking ring around... hmmmm... I saw seepage just from overnight waiting. I used the fuel resistant compound earlier, and of course the only thing that cleaned it off ...

Re: Fuel Sending unit O- ring issue

Sweet.. I have used 2 o rings that are from the packages from both brand new sending units.. so yes they are squared out.. I will check the tank for any denting or burring that might interfere with the O-ring. Good call.. When I tap in the locking ring, it typically moves the sending unit out from t...

Re: Fuel Sending unit O- ring issue

I love that everyone is helpful.. I used Vasoline on the first ring, but to no avail. about a drop every 10 seconds resulted. The second ring I used a gasket forming sort of goop that held it in place, and even after securing all the way to the hilt.. no dice.. dribbled faster. Then I tried the adju...

Fuel Sending unit O- ring issue

I have a 68 Cougar with a brand new fuel Tank, and a brand new fuel sending unit. And for the life of me, I cannot get the darn thing to stop dribbling fuel!? I have tried 3 different O-rings, including one that is from a Mazda 6 that fit perfectly around the piece, but i had to trim parts of it to ...

Re: Twins in Cougartown, (Sarasota) FL

Great Suggestion.
Sadly Ebay has really strict listing rules, so I was able to give out the website, the Forum Name and the Heading for the car, and hopefully people will know how to navigate there without the direct URL. Ebay no longer lets you put URLs into the Descriptions.

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

HA HA .. That sux.. I purchased a "Flasher Can" that said it was for my Cougar ( I am used to seeing them on my VW BUS) and I was looking all over for a stupid barrel flasher. Back to the floorboard!

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

I have a 68 Cougar, and while under the dash tried to locate the Flasher can / turn signal relay. Unable to find it, does someone have a pic taken from the floorboard of where the can is located? Any picture that would show where I should be looking would be great. I am assuming the reason my turn s...

Re: Twins in Cougartown, (Sarasota) FL

Looks great! I like the matte black with the red wheels and poverty caps. Nice look! Thanks, I wanted the Black and Bling style... and the red wheels with the dog dishes kinda sets off the street racer vibe. I will try to post more pictures tomorrow as I have painstakingly tried to reassemble the f...
