  3. 67 Headlights Question

    Classic Cougar Tech
    What is the actual Throw on the headlight actuator on a cougar, mine are currently inoperative and I have to move them by hand and I am not currently able to get to the car. I am going to be using linear motors or actuators to replace the vacuum actuator setup, has anyone else done this?
