Re: Cougar spotted in TV Show

Apparently the Hawaii Five-O folks liked that red 68 - it's in Season 1 Episode 24 'Six Kilos' as well. First sighting was around the 24 minute mark.

Re: mercury cougar concept car

That concept was posted online as the new Cougar as far back as 2007.

Re: Tach doesn’t work after ignition upgrade

The 'tach wire' is the one going to the coil + side. I am not familiar with the 72 wiring, but normally the engine harness connector also has wires to the oil pressure sender and temperature sender. I don't know where the 4th wire went on 72s. Basically, for the factory tach to work correctly the wi...

Re: 1967 to 1969 C6 Transmission Dip stick

Digging into it a bit more, it appears the -B was Cougar/Mustang and -C is listed as 'Ford' 6 or 8 cyl. I am guessing truck?

I think it has to do with the tube length. I did find one stick with a C6xx prefix where -C had a note that it was 23.5" and the same C6xx with a -B was noted as 22".

Resoldering all the joints on the circuit board may cure that. It's a cheap fix when it works.

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?
