    Classic Cougar Tech
    I'm hoping this is just a fuse issue, but I cannot seem to locate a fuse diagram anywhere. Chiltons book is no help. Does anyone know which fuse this would be? Thank you in advance!
  2. Turn Signal help

    Classic Cougar Tech
    On my 68 I was able to get all running lights functioning normally, however, the front and rear turn signals are jacked up. When I hit the left signal, absolutely nothing happens. When I hit the right signal, both front and rear light illuminate but don't blink. Any suggestions on the culprit...

    I bought a 71 XR7 in the fall and it came with the stock radio. However, the radio was in the trunk. I have been having a hard time figuring out to hook the thing up. I have some suspicions that some altercations have been done to the wiring. Can anybody fill me in on how things should be...
