Re: 69 or 70 fender

If the fender is bare the hole for the marker light in the 70 is a bit bigger. The hole in the 69 has accomodations for the mounting pins for the marker lights

Re: '68 Cougar won't start

I have had a few experiences with battery tenders where they failed and killed the battery being tended.

Re: 1970 Rear Sway Bars Addition Options

I have a Hellwig 3/4" rear anti-roll bar in my 69 XR 7. Installation was easy and it works well. It has been in my car for over 30 years with no issues. I put a front bar from a big block car (15/16" vs. 5/8") to balance out the effect of the rear bar. Handling is great.

Re: not many Cougar Fastbacks come to market...

The little flip in the belt line looks silly in this conversion.

Re: 351C-4V very low vacuum...

If there was any sealant around the exhaust crossover holes in the intake manifold gasket it can burn and cause a big vacuum leak (metal bathtub intake gasket)
