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

Thanks Vic for this very precise and informative answer: I understand NOW how it is possible for the right brake lights not to work even after TS problem is resolved on this side... BUT I am certainly not going to try to fix that bar at this point in time, especially knowing you tried yourself witho...

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

Ok in the mean time I took a look at the TS switch and just could not see any sign of melting... but I could see that the contact at the orangae/blue wire was kind of loose so I could make it work playing with it, then secured it a good position where it works. The only 2 thing left that do not work...

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

Re: 1970 standard convertible ... Switch replacement is the best solution. I hope it is a tilt column, because a good reproduction standard column switch is still not available. The older Scott Drake imported switches, with steel rivets, will last less than 10 minutes before they release the magic ...

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

Ok one more that just started today... 1970 standard convertible Lights OFF: No brake lights and no TS on right side only. Left side OK. Right front and side markers (front & rear) illuminate but do not flash. No power from the front (TS switch I guess) in orange/green and blue/white wires. Hazards ...

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

I took mine to the end of the driveway yesterday to take a couple of pictures https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1764/42546218004_c972d845dd_o.jpg I know it wasn't very far, but it's the first time in about 15 years it's moved under it's own power. I've still got work to get it road worthy, but getting...

Re: Torque Box - evaluation

In situation like yours with my rear torque boxes, I opened them from the bottom to find out that it was the only portion (bottom) that was rusted, so I cut the rust out and welded patches. That was just fine for a street driver.

Re: '69 351W Pulley Question (Running Out of Options)

UPDATE ... The needle in the dash now sits just above the 1/2 way mark for a while, but once the car starts driving and sits at a red light long enough (city traffic), the needle again starts to creep up until its almost at the red. For me that's a lot of movement just for sitting... ... the fan si...

Re: Gauge Problems

That makes me think of intermitent current failure from ignition switch to cluster. When ignition switch is off (car not running), instruments in the cluster do not work nor the signal direction but cluster lights will illuminate if you pull the lights knob. This is similar to what you observe when ...

Re: Help! Can't figure this problem out!

Few years back all the sudden my car started to backfire like that and was unable to take any load at all... ended up changing the distributor.
