eh, i figured no one ever posts anything here so i will.
i put a new McLeod clutch in my cougar.
took me 2 days..5 hours each day. and i had a pretty good record for injuries. i didnt hurt myself....until...i got it all put together, and i tore off down the street through first and second....then one of the clips that holds the shift linkage to the shifter broke.so i was down the street under the car again..and it happened.
SSSSSSSSSSSS..........i burned my arm pretty bad on the collector..thats what i get for lowering the car 2 1/2 inches, its hard to fit myself under there without jacking it up...but anyways i ended up driving the car home in second and fixing it here...so i burned myself for nothing.
anyways, the moral of the story is....i forgot.... but al least it was about my cougar.

Sounds like something I would (and have) done! I have tried tightening the header bolts right after the engine quit running before. Why? Because I was thinking about it at the time!

I have been spoiled the last 6 or so years by driving a lifted F150. Easy to get underneath to work on!

Good luck with your cougar!
