My monitor isn't the greatest. Does that trunk have a Spitzer tag on it?

Looks like my R code when I sold it; same blue, vinyl top, and shackles. However the trunk key cover looks like a standard, mine was an XR-7.

Re: Newbie need help with 68 Cougar Purchase

In the top engine picture the heater hose from the intake manifold is sent back to the water pump, leaky heater core? The hot water valve for the A/C is missing from the firewall, the two screws are there. Aftermarket radio.

Re: 68 Cruise Control Switch

The above solenoid (valve) mounts to the top of the Curtiss-Wright servo unit. Usually when you can find a used unit like this the hose nipples are broke off.

Re: 68 Cruise Control Switch

I agree, they are expensive, but I'm facing something even more ridiculous--I have an early model 67, so I have to use the Curtis Wright system.

Running good cold then lousy hot is a symptom of intake manifold gaskets. As the water pressure increases any leaks through a bad paper gasket show up. The water goes either into the engine valley then oil or into the intake ports adjacent to the corner water ports greatly affecting running. Sometim...

Re: From The Ashes

Maybe the wiring harness, ignition switch, points, coil, condensor cashed in. Run 12v from the battery to the positive on the coil, if no spark when cranking then check coil. Is the distributor spinning?
