Re: Clutch assist spring removal help

Steve, have you looked in the shop manual for the disassembly procedure. Its not easy its a very strong spring and it should have a plastic cressent shaped insulator on each end of the spring.

All 67 390 Cougars use a 390GT engine the difference being an open air filter housing for a GT car and a silencer type housing for a 6.5 liter the GT car option was stiffer springs HD shocks and a slightly larger sway bar.

Re: Fire extenguisher

Is the smoky gas corrosive ? Carbon dioxide and Halon are non corrosive and leave residue. I bet you will find this product is made in China.

It may have a small piece of debris stuck in the need/seat you can pull just the needle/seat assembly or remove the bowl without removing the carb from the manifold it will be full of fuel though.

Re: Carburetor Fire, Fire Extinguisher, What Now?

Halon or carbon dioxide extinguisher are best they leave no residue like the monoammonium phosphate powder in a dry chemical extinguisher which can become corrosive and very hard to clean up.
