I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and it apparently has Photo Gallery with all the features. This was actually the first time I've ever opened it.
Any chance you can give me a screen shot showing the bar at the top? Does it have a FIX option?

Re: The July 2019 Ride of the Month is Chris Carney's '69 XR-7 Ram Air 428CJ 4 speed!

There are a number of interesting things about this car. The VIN is very low, so low it could have been a first day of production vehicle. And it is a regular order type meaning that when it was scheduled Ford did not have an order for the car. Typically at the beginning of production the focus is b...

Re: Which u joints have you used for drive shaft.

Scott, I had a purely stock but completely rebuilt 390 S code G with the 2.79 rear axle and it was one of the best all around driving Cougars I have ever owned. The 390 has a ton of torque and it could light up the tires if I wanted to, but in reality I never really wanted to do that more than say o...

Need help with photo editing in Windows 7

This is off topic, but what I need help with has a big impact on what I can do for the site so... The last Ride of the Month was pretty severely impaired by a chain of events that made it very difficult to put photos into the thread. The back story. I am running Windows 7 and have been very happy wi...

More pictures from the shoot. 800|463|2019|5370.jpg I understand that John and Maryann are typically only in Florida for the winter but by shear luck they were able to bring the car to Ocala. 800|438|2019|5369.jpg 800|421|2019|5368.jpg 800|389|2019|5372.jpg Looks like Maryann get to do the driving!

NPD will feature an Eliminator in their new TV commerical!

It's great to see Cougars getting some live on TV. The last time I recall this happening was the pretty funny Hagerty commercial. I can't seem to find that any where to link to... NPD is shooting a new commercial in Ocala Florida and with the help of Dave Wyrwas John and Maryann Rago are providing t...

Re: Running Hot

For the technically minded. Buy a good quality 5 watt 100 ohm linear potentiometer. (variable resistor). Use a good aligator clip lead to ground one side to the block and then another clip lead to the end of the gauge wire. Adjust the potentiometer until the gauge is reading mid scale. Be patient, a...

Re: no start after driving

Bill - a silly question but when you say test "across connections" do you mean placing the two meter probes on each side of the "same" connection? Or at each end of a wire run? Thanks! Yes, that is exactly right. Royce explained it well, but I use a battery terminal brush kit because large amounts ...

Re: Running Hot

To understand a heating issue you have to be specific about when it over heats. On the highway, the fan and fan clutch are irrelevant. The ram air effect is putting more air through the radiator than any fan you can fit. If it over heats on the highway, you know that you are getting enough air. In t...

Re: no start after driving

Use your multi meter to look for voltage across connections. A perfect connection has 0 ohms resistance and there for no voltage across it. My best guess is that Royce is exactly correct. Battery terminals that clamp the cable with two bolts are always suspect. The next most common issue is the batt...
