Re: Ford-style "series" Tachometer testing

Is the pin at zero visible from the face plate on Faria models? The 69 we have was built 11/19/68 in San Jose and I see no pin so I assume it is a Bendix. Still working fine too. Yes, it is. It's about 1/4" to the right of the zero. It's not real obvious in the cluster so you might need to shine a ...

I've never heard of a C8 transmission before.
Me niether, but I'm always learning new things about old stuff.

Maybe they were thinking C5?

Re: 1967 to 1969 C6 Transmission Dip stick

Really? NOS one says C4 or C6 and is the part number you are looking for.
Ford used the same part number for two different parts?

Re: Ford-style "series" Tachometer testing

The Faria tachs came out in late 69 and have several visual cues that they are Faria, not Bendix: - As Vic mentioned, they have a stop pin at zero (as do my converted tachs). - Faria tachs have three small Phillips head screws that attach the dial to the case, Bendix used three small rivets to attac...

For the uninitiated, what intake is this for? I'm guessing a Boss engine of some type?
Looks like 289/302 to me.

Re: Clock adjustment knob removal

The 71-73 console clocks have no center knob, only the set knob.
The set knob unscrews from the shaft. They are VERY tight.

Re: Bad gas! why you need to drive your Cougar more often

An 'empty' tank can cause problems as well. I drained the e10 gas out of mine when I replaced the melted o-ring. At the same time I installed a rebuilt XR7 sender/pickup assembly. It sat for about 18 months with 'no' gas until I got around to finishing everything and putting her back on the road. Fi...

Re: 71-73 Owners - 'three wire' clock?

Current repair/service prices range from $50 (me) to $120. I cannot do repairs on General Time (GT) clocks anymore due to the lack of usable parts. Some places, like ISI, have a stockpile of OEM movements but an OEM movement is not included in that $120 price. I expect the prices of those who can st...
