Re: First gen Mercury Cougar history chart poster

The printed notice of change to the 289 2V was dated Oct 67 (a couple of months into 68 vehicle production). Al, the 68 R code and GT-E R code cars should be called out as well. You're right Bill. I was mentioning the Ski Pac as an example of regional special editions and should have said 69. I'm p...

Re: Clutch assist spring removal help

I think you have no choice. I would remove the driver's seat, steering column and then the pedal assembly. It's not that hard or time consuming. Basically removing parts and replacing parts. I bet you can do the entire job in two hours. Well, I already had the seat out so what’s a few more nuts and...

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. You know, I checked my assembly manuals but not the shop manual. I will have a look there. The missing pla...

Clutch assist spring removal help

I'm sure there is a trick to this and somebody here knows it: Is there a way to remove/reinstall the clutch assist spring without having the entire pedal hanger assembly out of the car? I'm talking about the large spring under the dash which connects the clutch pedal to the spring bracket on the ped...

Not a factory installed bracket.
Thanks. That’s what I thought but I wanted to check with the experts.

Clutch linkage part identification

This is the frame side clutch equalizer pivot that was on my 68 390. Is this an actual Ford part or did some long ago craftsman just fabricate this out of iron stock to replace the original?

Re: Wanted / 1967 390 S code Fan

I just happened to see this one on eBay when I was browsing parts the other day. Pricey.

Re: 1967 390 GT (with smog) belt routing help needed

Unsure how/if it differs on a 67, but on my 68 GT with power steering and without AC the two alternator belts go around crank and water pump on the two sheaves closer to the engine. The power steering runs on the outermost sheave of the crank pulley. The smog pump runs on the outermost sheave of the...

Re: My 68 XR7 GT 4 speed

I decided it was time to get after the brakes, suspension, and steering to get my GT ready for longer drives to local club events. First step was pulling the booster and master, quite a chore with not much room to spare. It seems like the '69 Bendix booster that was in there used up a couple extra i...
