Re: What now!!?

Definitely sounds like it's related to the throwout bearing to me. Did you put a new clutch and throwout bearing in it when you rebuilt the engine? If so, did you adjust the linkage? If you didn't adjust it the clutch pedal will be in a different place (higher) after putting a new clutch in it. It w...

Re: Seat back release spring?

Is there not a "springs are us" type of site where you can get one that is close enough to this? Should not be that hard to modify. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/69seatlatchpass.html?attribs=87 I may have to resort to that. I finally found that the part number is C8ZZ 6561097-B (C8ZZ 656109...

Seat back release spring?

I've been trying to find a spring for the seat back release hook on the driver's side seat for my '68. I've typed all sorts of things into Google and haven't come up with anything. I've seen that WCCC carries a complete used latch assembly from the lever on the side of the seat to the hook, but I ha...

Re: Scottsdale Auction Week 2020 - Fantasy Bid

I got pretty close with the buyer's premium. That really looks like a nice car. That drivetrain setup is really close to what I'd like to do to mine eventually. Congrats on the bid, Catlover.

Re: Bullitt sale

They probably vetted the people bidding on it fairly well. I doubt Frank Mecum would be on the phone with someone that doesn't have the funds to pay for the car. I suppose it's possible, though. For a while I believe Frank was the only one who knew the winning bidder, which is possibly where that ru...

Re: Scottsdale Auction Week 2020 - Fantasy Bid

I'm re-acclimating to Minnesota weather after returning from Florida - with a day at Mecum. Saw most of the Cougars that were up for sale. We bumped into Kevin Marti at the Bullitt display and he started to tell us the story of the other Bullitt car found in Mexico, but he was pulled away by media ...

Re: Bullitt sale

Theres a story iv always heard about regarding several “ Bullit” cars. It goes along the lines that they first used a 390 GT, but whilst filming the jump seens, they demolished a few cars when the heavy 390 nose dived into the concrete roads. From these wrecks cam the idea of using the 289 car that...

Re: Scottsdale Auction Week 2020 - Fantasy Bid

$56,000. I'll be heading for the Mecum auction this year because of the Bullitt car being sold. I've been involved with Bullitt stuff for about the last 10 years and the group that holds the Bullitt Nationals is having a get together there. We're scheduled to have supper with Sean Kiernan (current o...

Re: Holiday break projects

Here's my project: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49300872948_6354562d94.jpg [/url] I took everything down to the frames because of the mouse smell, so it's a complete redo. We'll see if I have enough skill and patience to make them look nice. I did similar rust repair on my car a couple of yea...
