Hello all

Totally want to go the electric headlight route. And yes, got the shop manual already, a couple-few days ago. It was really helpful in gaining a better understanding of the PS system, though I could not for the life of me find anything about the rag joint or gearbox. Maybe I just need to keep readin...

Re: Hello all

Okay, so, took a few pics that show the interior and the engine bay. There's also a video with no image but the sound of the exhaust after a cold start (it's like 55 degrees here today).

Re: Hello all

Here I go, piling on more questions. Heh. I have a new data point. When I'm sitting still and holding the brakes (AT) if I push just hard enough to hold the car, it's pretty quiet. But if I push a bit harder, there's a hissing sound, I can't tell if it's coming from the brake pedal or the headlight ...

Re: Hello all

Sorry for a zillion questions. I wanna buy a cover, too, like, NOW. I have my eye on the NOAH cover from CalCarCovers, I want something that's indoor/outdoor since the garage I'm renting is about 90% indoor and 10% outdoor, roof leaking in one spot not above my car but who knows how quickly that can...

Re: Hello all

I just had to delete my post saying no fair teasing me with how to fix the shifter but not telling, because in the time it took me to write my post you posted your response. So funny. Yes, I do have the center console that goes all the way back to become an ashtray for the back seat. The floor light...

Re: Hello all

One last thing for now... My idle, here's what I found yesterday. After a half hour of driving. Lights on, in gear, about 425, and every few seconds there's a single puff that drops it below 400 and it recovers fine and goes back to where it was. Lights on, in park, about 725. Then I turned the ligh...

Re: Hello all

Oh and I for sure need a cover, need to order that ASAP. The garage is barely gonna do anything to protect the car from rain and snow, nothing to protect it from temperature, and it's dirty and dusty as hell. Was looking at a NOAH model by CalCarCovers. Thoughts?

Re: Hello all

Oh I'm going for driving as much as possible, don't worry! I'm not doing a restoration, the whole point is to have a fun and awesome car. So the only times she won't be drivable are when I'm repairing something or during Chicago's lovely 8 month winter. Hey, the shift indicator *doesn't* line up rig...

Hello all; the TMH Chicago Cat project

I'm a noob here after being a noob at mc.net for a couple-few weeks now. Noob to Cougars, and noob to car repair in general. I've got pretty thick skin and totally get that noobs sometimes get their ball joints busted, so no worries about that. I'm here to learn and to shoot the breeze. That's about...
