    In-Stock Item - Next Business Day

    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.

    • Quality components

    Cons:
    • No zip tie for boot
    To my knowledge, this kit isn't offered anywhere else. Quality components to fix an annoying problem. Although I only have 1 actuator on my 69 Cougar Base Coupe, there are 2 kits provided which allows me the opportunity to rebuild an extra unit I have on the shelf. I'm very grateful for the excellent U-Tube tutorial which shows how to test and rebuild the actuators. Only gripe I have is there isn't a small zip tie provided in the kit to secure the accordion boot.

    Before I purchased this rebuild kit I changed all the vacuum lines the headlight switch and the headlights still came up slow no where could I find online a repair kit for a Galaxie or/LTD hideaway lights until I stumbled across the Cougar activator video on YouTube of how to rebuild them, it didn’t list that it would fit but I tried it anyways ordered it and tried it anyways and it fit perfect… So anyone out there with a Galaxie or LTD with hideaway lights and you have a problem with your activator this kit works! Thank you for providing this great service and tit. It saved me a ton of money!
