Re: Oil Pressure Light does not work.

I know this may sound silly but in more than one case I have seen people mistake the water temp sender with the oil pressure sender. In any event you need to unplug the wire you have jumpered and see if you have voltage between the wire and the block. It sounds like you will find zero volts. Next yo...

Re: Re: 68 Rusto-Cat-Restoration - New Wheels & Tires Questions??

This is a pretty specific issue. It would really take some one with the exact set up you have to give you good information. I hope that happens but it is probably unlikely. The good news is that it sounds like a 12mm spacer can fix the problem if there is one.

Re: How to break in to my own car - door not unlatching

On '67 and '68 there is a well known problem with the lock rod being too tight causing this problem. It is covered in the factory service manual at lest for 1968. I do not know if this effects the later cars. I did a write up on this a few years back. https://classiccougarcommunity.com/forum/viewtop...

Re: Are suspension upgrades worth the cost?

Very few people have driven a Cougar that has a fully functional front suspension and steering system. When you drive a car with just one thing wrong: bad rag joint or a loose idler arm, you get the wrong impression about the stock system. It seems that every Cougar I take apart has an issue or two ...

Re: Mustang Unlimited HUGE sale (GOB)

Closing a business is traumatic. It is like a funeral that goes on for months or even years. Every one seems to turn on each other. I am amazed it is going as well as it is. Catvert68 has it exactly right.

Re: Another "Phase 1" project

To embed a you tube video use the YouTube link on the editing bar and paste in the last part after the = sign: IKd-gj0QSrw in this case.

This is just the coolest thing ever! Will you reveal the secret?

Be sure to add a fuse or circuit breaker to that wire.

Vote for the December 2019 Ride of the Month!

No turkeys in this bunch of nominees... sorry about that but as I write this highly intoxicating turkey aroma has filled the house and only sharp knives are keeping me from stealing a bite. So, to take our minds away from the Thanksgiving feast and the joy of left-over goodness, lets pick the next R...
