1969 - 1970 Cobra Jet Engines Needed / Block, Complete Or?

I am looking for 3 428, count them three Cobra Jet Motors at present. Two are for junkers that I am hoping to sell soon and my thought is having a date code correct engine might make the sale easier. The third is for the green 1970 428 Convertible I sold on ebay the other day (if you did not see it ...

Re: MagMustangs sponsoring Boss 429 Cougar

The car is a Rebody Yes. As with any car that far gone it could be considered as having been destroyed but there were still bits and pieces left along with the all important VIN and title. Most of the car when finished will not be original to that particular car but I wouldn't go as far as to say i...

67-73 Cougar Sequential Turn Signal Trouble Shooting Thread

Not a day goes by that someone does not call me with technical questions regarding Cougar / Shelby / Thunderbird sequential systems. Many are easy to figure out on the phone but often I deffer to Victor Yarberry in Albuquerque New Mexico. Vic is what I call a "Lifer" when it comes to Cougars. He has...

Re: MagMustangs sponsoring Boss 429 Cougar

Not to rain on anyone's parade but you do know that car was confirmed destroyed and this is really a tribute car right? Ed Myer has the only "survivor" and even his is a bunch of bits and pieces that he has methodically rounded up across the country.

Re: WCCC '67 Cougar GT Giveaway - Official Thread

Wow! That submission checked all the boxes in my opinion. I have no doubt they are equipped to do the job and understand what they are getting into. Because it is a fundraiser they will get all kinds of parts for free and probably a bunch of labor too. The video submissions hold my attention well an...

Re: 1970 Eliminator Rock Guard Paint Question...

The reason yours is currently red oxide (with yellow stenciled on part # most likely) is that it was replaced with a service replacement part at one time.

Re: AC Tensioner Idler Pulley Bearing Replacement WCCC-TV

I agree 100%. We need to update the video at about 6:10 and advise putting the bearing in the pulley first. Another way is to use a small socket and put pressure on the inner race only. Whereas this pulley went together really easy and most likely did not stress the bearing, once in awhile it really...

AC Tensioner Idler Pulley Bearing Replacement WCCC-TV

This is another one of those parts that EVERY FoMoCo product with Air Conditioning needs replaced. Heat, time and miles are all working against the little light duty bearing seen hear and I personally have seen its failure do upwards of $3000 damage. Picture the pulley coming off at high RPM's, hitt...
