Re: Only a “clunk” when I try to start.

Next time ask if you can watch. Probably ran an electric drill or something like that while you were listening.

I always have alternators and starters checked before I leave the store. Burned too many times.

Re: Only a “clunk” when I try to start.

Remember Optimas do wear out. Mine lasted about ten years, then nothing.

Re: 1970 Cougar rocker moldings

On my 69 the plastic retainers are not pop riveted on, It has the little "nail heads" similar to those that hold the windshield molding clips.

Re: Taillight protector boards in anything *other* than cardboard?

Has anyone used the cardboard covers as a template to make some out of steel or aluminum sheet?
