Electric Hideaway Headlight Actuator Conversion: 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
In this video, we show how to replace your early Cougar's vacuum-operated
hideaway headlight system with a simpler, more reliable electric conversion
kit. This kit includes two remanufactured Ford Probe headlight motors, a
custom wiring harness, and custom bracketry and hardware for this specific
application, making installation simple.
To view the kit, click here:
Some reasons to go this route instead of keeping your vacuum system:
- Easier to keep your grille straight. The vacuum system puts constant
pressure on the grille.
- Cheaper as a whole. To replace your entire vacuum system is significantly
- faster and more even opening &
closing. No more slow opening / closing one at a time.
- Can operate without the engine running.
- Perfect solution for those with high performance engines with low vacuum.

those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.

RIDETECH level 2 coil over + 4 link install (71 Chevy Camaro)
Ridetech level 2 coil over + 4 link install on 71 Camaro. This is our 2nd
RIDETECH suspension upgrade completed, with this group of friends; our
first on a "F" body! For the "F" body, we had to break out the welder!
The older American Thunder series flowmaster transverse muffler/exhaus had
to be removed to clear the upper link brackets. Andy, Don, Mike, Ray, Jim
and Terry, thank you so much for your help on this. Replaced the
Flowmaster "american thunder series" tranverse muffler with two 3 chamber
50 series flowmasters. Ran the 2.5 inch runs under the differential. The
pipes allow for wider tires down the road. Car has more Pep! The guys at
Guaranteed Mufflers and Brakes in Fremont, were great! Really happy with
the new deep sound.
Next step: Finalize the ride height!
