Re: Advice - Close to overheating

Make sure you have a thermostat for a 351 Cleveland the windsor won't work. Also did you change the sensor because it was bad? Auto part store sensors usually read too high.

Re: Low Fuel Thermistor Troubleshooting

NPD sells a replacement thermistor that they list for 67/68 Mustang/Cougar. I have successfully used these on two 67 Mustangs that have been working for several years, about 2 gallons and light comes on. However on one 68 Mustang and 68 Cougar the light came on one or two times then quit. Taking the...

Re: What was your first interest cougars

1969 and the Mercury dealer had an Augusta green G sitting in the front row of the used car lot. I was wondering what that rectangular cutout was in the roof and had the the sales guy open the sunroof. After that I expected all 68 Cougars to have a sunroof and hood scoop, oh well. I saw this car abo...

Re: 1968 Cougar 390 4 speed Carburetor Suggestion

Send me to the re-education camp if I'm wrong. But didn't 67 and 68 390 S codes come with 4150 715 CFM Holleys? And 69 390 (IP) S code come with the 4300 600 CFM?

Re: Looking at a Hettz G project car.

Some comments on the engine compartment. The high up placed alternator usually meant no smog system which could be an X code, 69 IP 390, or even a truck FE. Just because it has an 'S' on the manifold doesn't confirm the engine, you would need to find the VIN stamping for sure. Looks like the wiring ...

Re: A/C vs High Performance

Th reason was that the engine could turn at higher RPMs than the compressor was rated to handle. This was the reason Ford would not let a car with the Drag Pak option have air conditioning. The stress on that small compr piston/rod and long belt. A former Ford dealer owner told me in 69 they tried ...

Re: what is worth more?

Over the last few years when I tell a 'car spectator or enthusiast' that I have a Cougar the majority answer is "an Eliminator, with a spoiler?". When I say no many conversations end. We as the keeper's of the flame know and for most part hold up the GTs, Gs, and GTEs but I see the general car guy n...

Re: Remove oil pan

Just a warning. Removing the cross member may cause the shock towers to bend in preventing an easy re-attachment.
