Everything you wanted to know about '67 Sequential Signals

When you tell some one that you own an early Cougar, more often then not, they will say something like "Oh yeah, they had those cool tail lights!" It seems to be the one thing that people remember about cars that were built over 40 years ago. So keeping those cool taillights working is pretty close to the top of the list for most Cougar owners.

Fortunately for us, Coach Jack feels the same way. And he did more than just make his work he has assembled the best most comprehensive collection of Cougar tail light knowledge ever. Like 29 pages worth! Even if you are not driving a '67 I think this comprehensive look at how the system works will be very valuable to any one working on these systems.

And thankfully Coach Jack has agreed to share this with all of us. In appreciation of his effort, we have made Coach Jack and honorary Supporting Member and this thread will become a sticky. We look forward to seeing lots of perfectly flashing Cougar taillights!

I like this line the best: “Understanding how your cat’s lights flash in the blink of an eye”

Well that is highly coincidental! We just spent 5 hours with Cougar Greg (user name devildog) doing a video titled "Everything you wanted to know about 67-68 Sequential s" yesterday. We will make sure and point people to his very well laid out work. This is a HUGE benefit to WCCC, we get a mirage of electrical questions everyday and they are usually impossible to solve over the phone. Also do not forget this thread when trouble shooting your taillight issues.

Watch for the video mini-series to be released soon! (Just Kidding)

A short shout out to Don and the wonderful family he has assembled at WCCC for the opportunity to help!

Sorry for the hijack (Jack), please resume normal programming.

Looks like a great troubleshooting guide. Who exactly is Coach Jack? Maybe a little bio would be in order.

I can't seem to find a link to a PDF. Is it intended to be inside the [url] tag in the original post which doesn't have a url in it?

Yep, I made the rookie mistake of copying the text instead of the URL... DOH! Fixed it now though

Is there an equivalent body of info for 1970 tail lights? Or are they the same system?
