Re: Parts that need to be reproduced

A complete under dash harness would be nice, I talked to Vic about it a few years ago. At the time it was cost prohibitive for me to have it done, but maybe other would like one as well. If you have one Randy at Midlife Harness Repair and Restoration can make it good as new. http://midlifeharness.c...

Re: Sway bars and traction bars?

I have both on my '69. I have not noticed a difference in ride quality.

Re: Ignition resistor wire

I just emailed you that the diagram you show there does match my 69 XR7 and the F connector is empty.

Re: Ignition resistor wire

Yeah, your pic was the reason I went with the open tach. Unfortunately that is how the factory tachs fail - the engine shuts off. Follow the tach wires about 6" and you will come to a flat connector. Disconnect the tach from there and install a jumper wire on the engine side if that connector. That ...

Re: Ignition resistor wire

No tach then I would say either the ignition switch on the column or the resistor wire has gone bad. Your circuit goes ignition switch to coil + with the resistor wire in between. The 'pink' resistor wire is NOT part of the ignition switch pigtail, it is wrapped up in the main wiring harness under t...

The pink wire should be wrapped up in the main harness between the tach and the firewall.

Chances are your tachometer has died. Strange that it doesn't fire in start position though... Have you tried jumping the tach yet?

Re: Dearborn versus San Jose

My 69 was built in San Jose on November 19, 1968.
I had found a couple of differences from 'other' non San Jose Cougars but they were so minor I cannot recall many of them now. I think the most obvious is that San Jose did not attach buck tags.
