I have a '68 cougar and just finished replacing my entire brake system (vacuum booster, master cylinder, all lines, calipers, and pads). Car runs great, drives great, and I’m glad to have it back. Unfortunately, my steering wheel will no longer tilt when i turn the car off and open my door? Is this a vacuum problem? I replaced all tubes for my head lights a year ago, and they work perfect right now. If it is a vacuum problem, where does the vacuum line hook to the steering wheel Thanks for your input.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

if it anything like a 69, you'll have a vacuum can with a check valve in it located up under the dash right near the column, also a door jamb plunger switch, either one of those go bad your tiltaway is inoperable
