  2. Brakes and Power Steering help

    Classic Cougar Tech
    Alright , I'm concerned with my brakes on a 68 mercury cougar. It's a Dan Gurney if that helps any. I just put a new booster and master cylinder on. New front end parts along with a new power steering pump and control valve. I have leaking in my power steering where the hose connects to the...
  3. AC Firewall on Non-AC Cat?

    Classic Cougar Tech
    Been trying to limit the fumes coming into the cabin of my 68 Cougar, and one of the largest offenders is a large overall hole near the heater core. It appears it would have been a hole for the AC lines to pass through (smooth edge and uniformly cut {don't think it was a DIY material removal})...

    Classic Cougar Tech
    After several hours of internet searching, I thought I'd ask the collective wisdom of the forum :-) I purchased my Cougar with a Ford Racing chromed dress-up kit already fitted. This has not weathered very well (cheap chrome?) and so I'm planning to replace it as part of a general tidy-up of...

    I just purchased a customized version of Old Air Products complete A/C system part # CAP-1268M-289, for my non A/C 1968 Cougar powered by a '69 351w and a FMX. Are there any pitfalls I should be avoiding during the installation process?
  8. Location for 1968 6.5 Litre Emblems

    Classic Cougar Bodywork
    I finally got some nice quality 6.5 Litre emblems from a forum member. Now, for the installation. I don't know if a PO mudded over the mounting holes, or if my car has fenders off of a non-6.5L car (we will find out shortly). However, in case I need to drill mounting holes, does anyone...
