    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.

    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!

    Cons:
    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...
