Thanks for tall the encouragement folks. I plan to have this Cougar at the WCCC Open house this summer.
I got my parts back from the blasters in double time, I dropped them off and he said they would be ready in 45 minutes. So I went had had lunch and came back to pick them up.
and air cleaner housing;
The power steering pump seal kit came in and I got the pump put back together and I think it looks good.
This pump was originally Black, not the Blue we see on some. So Black it is.
All the accessory's are now on, adjusted and working. I am thinking about finding a different set of belts. The P/S belt from NAPA is a wild Green color. The belts I had in the trunk of Ginger last summer for my trip to Dearborn and back ups. They are the same size as this car uses. But Green?
I ran it for about 20 minutes last night looking for leaks and I think I have none now. I had to tighten one trans cooler line at the transmission. Not to bad for all that was taken apart and for how long is was apart.
I don't know what I'm going to do about the color on the air cleaner, I now have one that is to light of a color and one that is to dark...
I have all the front bumper brackets painted and ready to assemble when I get the bolts.
I have the Grill, hood and front bumper to install still. The trunk needs to be put back together and detailed. Then wheels and tires and off to the alignment shop. I will be putting together a final pic list this evening and do some shop cleaning. But for now the Sun is out and I need to get out in to it.
