Re: 1969 Brake warning light always on

Is there any way to find out if there is a leak back into the booster without taking everything apart?

Re: Smoke from dash

I hope it is not the radio. It was playing just fine while the car was warming up. I just collected some tapes that are all cat related too. Ted Nugent Cat Scratch Fever, tom Jones What's New Pussycat, a few Cat Stevens, and this little gem. Still want to get some Kitty Wells to add to the collectio...

Oil question

Is anyone using 20W-50 in their Cougars? I want to use Valvoline VR1 Racing oil because of the zinc and the local parts store only has it in 20W-50. I am old school I think and have always used 10W-40. Any comments?
