Heater Core Replacement - '69 Cougar

In this episode, we tackle one of the most dreaded jobs for classic car owners: replacing the heater core. On a classic Cougar or Mustang with air conditioning, it's a very involved process. In this case, we use a 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 CJ convertible as a guinea pig. Don walks through how to remove the dash pad and lower dash panel, and how to remove and service the heater box plenum and blower motor assembly. Along the way, he offers several tips on other jobs you should consider tackling while you're in the process. This is a job that we actually recommend you attempt yourself, rather than taking your car to a shop. Not only will you save money, but you will probably be a lot more careful than the average mechanic, and will avoid breaking expensive / irreplaceable parts. The fiberglass heater box itself is very fragile and valuable, and most of the plastic clips for the wiring harness are not reproduced. Most of the parts mentioned in this video can be found in the A/C and Heat sections on our website: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/airco.html

Sloppy Steering Syndrome - Problems & Solutions
If your steering feels loose and vague on your classic Cougar (or Mustang, or other old Ford / Lincoln / Mercury), you need to watch this video. During our annual open house event, we invited several Cougar owners to put their car on the lift and let us wiggle things around to diagnose loose steering. Some unrestored cars needed attention in several areas, whereas others were suffering from one or two factors that were overlooked during restoration. Armed with the knowledge you'll gain from this video, there's no reason your steering can't be made tighter and more precise. All the applicable parts mentioned in this video can be found on our website in these two categories: Steering parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/steering.html Suspension parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/suspension.html
