    UPDATE 11-19-20: We still do not have the shaft seal dialed in but we are offering this kit with a proven substitute seal until further notice.
    This kit will recondition most FoMoCo headlamp actuators built from 1967 into the 70's on most any Thunderbird, Torino, Lincoln, Cyclone or Marquis. The kit will service two actuators even though many cars only come with one center mounted unit. If your actuator holds vacuum on the bottom port but does not hold vacuum (or pressure) on the top port then this kit is what you are after. If your actuator does not hold vacuum when applied to the lower port then your unit will have to be opened midway to replace the large inner bellows and this is impossible to do without specialized tooling. 

    You can go through the photos above for step by step instructions on how to replace the seal yourself.  


    NOTE* If you use a vise to hold your actuator while you work on it, do not over tighten because you will crush the can.

    Fitted the kits, easy, 10 min each side. Was going to get electric kits but i like the original vacuum set up, these had not worked for many years, now work well. Just watch the fix video at least twice and heed the warning about the bottom nipple when putting the unit in the vice, i noted how easy it would be to snap one off if not placed to the side of the vice...

    Pros:
    • easy to install
    Cons:
    • may not solve every issue
    So after years of putting up with having a passenger side seal and boot that were non existent, I was about to give up and "retrofit" Corvette boots along with a seal that I found to be of the right i.d. and o.d. Enter the email that I found from WCCC with the info on this new kit.

    It worked!!!!! I no longer have to manually lower my passenger headlight every time I shut my headlights off. It may not be the sexiest thing on my '68, but it was easy to install, and solved my problem. Will it for everyone? probably not. But for the money, it is certainly worth a try.

    My Son and I were able to get this to work within minutes. The difference in how quick the headlights go up and down now is remarkable. Thanks Don!
