Re: Should my ‘68 have springs Behind the window cranks?

Those look like old springs from inside a flashlight to hold the batteries. My 2 cents!

Re: Ford-style "series" Tachometer testing

Is the pin at zero visible from the face plate on Faria models? The 69 we have was built 11/19/68 in San Jose and I see no pin so I assume it is a Bendix. Still working fine too.

Re: Stiff Power Steering when car is hot

I just flushed my PS system and put in a clear power steering fluid. I got it on the recommendation of the parts store guy, not a young kid either. I think I need to go back and flush it out and put in type F transmission fluid. I just had the pump rebuilt and don't want to eff it up.

Re: BUILD SHEET ?

I have had the interior completely gutted in our San Jose built 69 and found nothing. Throughout the years we have had this car, I have been everywhere in the door panels, trunk, seats, etc, and have found nothing. Just like trying to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Re: Engine bay color question.

I have a November 68 built in San Jose 69 XR7. Are you referring to the area above the seam and above where the tower support arms bolt to the cowl/firewall area.

Re: looking for dealer emblems for my GT-Es

Our Cougar was sold at Stanford Lincoln Mercury in Menlo Park, CA. I found a good paper plate and a fair, scratched up metal license plate frame on Ebay. I am always on the look out for a better license plate frame. I just love owning a Cougar!
