Re: Repro wiring diagram

I have not seen one yet. The Eliminator wiring is XR-7 with a special adapter that plugs in to the harness to remove the toggle switches in the dash.

Re: Hard shifting

My wife would say it's typical cause I usually don't read the destructions at all or just glance at them. Yep, I have destroyed a few things not reading the instructions first. But we man don't need stinking instructions. Real men can fix any thing with out them.(and end up paying more to have it f...

Huh. I always carry a spare tire around with me; it is always located just above my belt on my pants.
Unfortunately ditto, but that was funny!
Same here, :D :roll:
But I don't think it will help as much as the AAA card in my wallet does.

Re: Low Fuel Sending Unit rebuilding service

It is incredible but these things are specific for each year. The '67 used a smaller feed tube, 5/16", your rubber hose will be too small for a '68. The '68 used the larger 3/8" tube so you will want to stay with that so your rubber fuel line will fit. The '69 has a longer float arm for the larger ...

Re: Vin numbers

This example is of 2 of my Cougars. Mote higher number was built first. Another reason that may factor in to how they are loaded on to the line may have to do with destination. The hard top(0F93) went to Everett WA and the Convertible went to Beverly Hills CA. 0F93H624398 SERIALIZED 10-31-1969 BUILT...

Re: 67-70 Deck lid core trim wanted!

Actually New Zealand / Australia is much more expensive to ship to and from than Europe! My son lives in Townsville Australia and I am going to visit him next month. Maybe my geography will be a bit more polished as a result. Okay not to totally hijack this thread which may be too late, but what do...

Re: Vin numbers

I may have this wrong, but as I understand it our cars were not built in consecutive number. They were serialized in order(I think) but build was not due to possibly having all the parts in house, or maybe the paint or to note cause slowdowns in production. Maybe like not building 25 CJ cars in a ro...

Shipping low dollar cores from Europe never pencils out.... Don't throw them away though, someday they could be worth a fortune.
Someone needs a geography lesson. :D
Not much difference in cost from down under then Europp. But a long way apart.

p.s. I think Don may know the difference.
