Re: How much will a mechanic charge?

The started for 2 seconds sounds like it runs off the 'start' circuit for 12 volts to the coil but not the 'run' circuit when you turn the key back to ON/RUN. Could be bad ignition switch or the pink resistor wire got burned out so its now an open circuit. The power for the turn signals runs first t...

Re: Another "overheating" thread...

Temp gauge was at about 2/3 when I got in line to get into the lot. A bit high, but not an excessive reading when warmed up.

This is great info. I've been wanting to tackle my 67 8-track and was looking for a site like this.
How did you get to the exact schematic? I have a 67 8 track that I would like to work on.
Thanks

Jim Rakowsky

I attended Jim's burial Mass today to say goodbye. Jim and I met many times at car events in Northern Ohio especially Autorama and he informed me on many things 'Cougar'. The family displayed some pictures of him over the years and there was one of a very young Jim with his Eliminator. When I gave m...

Re: Pet peeve - part store temp sensors

Re: Pet peeve - part store temp sensors

Thanks for taking the time to do this, it has been needed. Maybe post it also on ConcoursMustang there was recently someone trying to solve 'hot' running with buying a new sensor.

Re: 1969 428CJ Vacuum Hose Question

Just throwing out my $.02. Two auto trans re-builders I know say the modulator should have it's own vacuum connection to the intake. This assures the vacuum is not affected from other accessories (headlights, A/C, speed control).
