first start of the 1967 cougar

After just a *few* attempts (and replacing the fuel pump), the 289 2 barrel cougar finally starts for us at the 24 second mark. (followed by fuel leaking out of the top and bottom engine just after this ended.....but hey, at least it started!) Background noise is the Volvo, acting as a battery charger, as the cougar's battery is DEAD. Unfortunately, another fuel pump is now required as it was cross-threaded.....)

Drum to Disc Brake Conversion - 1968 Cougar / Mustang
A majority of these classic 60's cars came with manual drum brakes from the factory, which was fine when most of the other cars on the road also had manual drums. But in today's world, stopping distances are much shorter, and antiquated drum brakes are a real safety hazard when driving alongside modern cars. That's why converting to power disc brakes is a no-brainer to us. In this video, Andrew uses the factory power disc brake components from a 1970 Cougar to convert his 1968. The important thing to remember when doing this is to take the whole system in its entirety, and not to mix-and-match parts from different years. The 1970 brake pedal needs to be used with the 1970 Booster, and so on. The conversion shown in this video is just one of the possible routes you can take. We like using factory Ford parts when possible, rather than aftermarket kits, but that's our opinion.
