Re: The new Taco

Changed the oil this week (exciting, I know) and had my son help me. It's my first time using the Fumoto valve since I installed it. Impressions? It works, I used the tube that came with it, but won't use it next time, as it negates the "clean" factor of using a valve if you have to deal w...

Re: The new Taco

Well, new tires, combined with just renewing the registration, means I'll be keeping this thing. By the time another registration rolls around, the truck will be paid for. I've never paid off a vehicle with a loan, so this will be something new for me. I've owned plenty of vehicles free and clear, b...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Yep, it's a rats nest under there and I haven't even attempted to look at it yet.

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Finally got the hideaway door actuators installed, wire, working, and finishing. Only major gotcha I had is that the rubber dust boot that covers the motor adjustment knob was an obstruction and jammed one of the motors. Nothing big, although to adjust the door back down, I had to remove the headlig...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Slow going, I ordered a few bits for the Cougar today. New battery tray, hold down, front end emblem, some grommets, etc. i need to pick up some wire terminals to finish up the wiring for the headlight door harness. I’ve got the motors in, and getting closer to have it put back together. Maybe buy n...

I would've contacted Dunlop for warranty claims, but I didn't want the same tires back on there.

Re: The new Taco

Guess it’s time for new tires. Tires (and truck) are 3 years old, manufactured 4th week of 2015. They’re dry rotted, splitting quite badly. All 4 tires on the shoulder, and close to the wheel around the sidewalk. I don’t use tire dressing, keep them inflated properly, etc. Edit: had some 265/70/17 B...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Started working on replacing the vaccum headlight door actuators with the electric kit. Naturally, I broke one bolt on one actuator, and the other is rusted solid. They've been soaking for a bit with PB blaster now. Since I don't need to reuse that bolt, I'll most likely cut it out if I can't work t...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

The new scoop looks so much better. I can't stop looking at the front of the car. When I get some time, maybe Sunday, I'll see if I can get the electric headlight door actuators installed.

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

It's done! Now to see if I can squeeze picking it up today, or if I have to wait until tomorrow.

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

No news yet. I should drive by and see if it's sitting outside. If it's done this week, I'll try and pick it up Saturday. We've got an end of year hockey party at our house on Friday and would rather not have a gaggle of kids running around fresh paint. It'd be hard to hold off picking it up, though.

Re: Front 4 Club

Damn, I should've kept my CX. Probably not competitive, but I bet that would've been a fun little car to toss around. Sounds like a great plan, if I didn't have the Cougar, I'd be interested. Maybe something will happen down the road. I keep getting the small car itch.

You're 6 years into ownership of this guy, congrats!

Glad the battery seemed to fix your issues.

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

I do have a manual choke. I haven't needed to use it except after it's been sitting a while and I'm starting it on a cold day (when I took it to the shop last week, for instance). I'm looking foward to going fuel injected down the road and not sitting there cranking wondering if the battery will wea...
