    Due to overwhelming demand, WCCC is now able to offer a 1970 Cougar Electric Headlight Door conversion kit. This kit will replace the old, tired, vacuum system that likes to leak and wear out. There are few differences between the 1969 and 1970 conversion kit.

    When you purchase this electric actuator kit you will get a remanufactured 1993 - 1996 Ford Probe motor, a fused wiring loom, and a relay. This kit also includes detailed instructions for easy installation. Simply remove all existing vacuum components and replace them with this kit. When installed properly, you will have headlight covers that work under any conditions with the car running or not.

    If you have a high performance engine with low vacuum, this is a must have kit for your Cougar.

    Actuator Heim joints are fully adjustable to keep your grille and headlight lids nice and straight without slack. Another advantage of this electric system is that it doesn't put constant pressure on your grille like the original vacuum system does.

    These kits have a 3 year full warranty against manufacturer defects.

    You can find the body plug needed on the firewall here.

    We've had questions about what body plug to use when getting rid of the vacuum hoses and converting to the electric headlights. You can click on the link in the video, or get it here.

    As a Flight Chief for the USAF (Civil Servant) and managing 5 avionics shop I can attest to the quality of this product as being that of aircraft equivalent. It is currently installed on my 70 Cougar and operates better than the original vacuum system. Installation skill level I would rate at the novelist level (take the time to watch the WCCC video before installing) I really enjoy how it cleaned up my engine compartment after all the vacuum hardware was removed. Yes, a little pricey but end result well worth it!

    • Quality
    Cons:
    I ordered this knowing I might have to make some changes to work on my Ranchero. I used the factory vacuum canister brackets to mount the electric motor. Worked grear. I did find out to not turn the door shaft. If you flip it it puts athe motor in a bind.
    I then had to make one other change to make it work.
    The adjustable motor arm that comes with the kit is to short for the Ranchero. It is 4 and 11/16 inch long. I made one that is 6 1/2 inch long and it works perfect.
    I am very pleased with this kit and can't believe how good it works.

    This kit was the answer to years of vacuum trouble with my headlight doors. The kit was of high quality and the instructions were easy to follow. It was ridiculously easy to install and worked flawlessly the first time I turned the lights on. This conversion kit is a must have to upgrade your tired vacuum system.

    The conversion kit worked great. Easy to install. The only item that would have completed the package is the body plug for the firewall where the vacuum hoses went through. I would strongly suggest you had the body plug to the kit to make it everything you need.

    The parts are well made and fit into the existing brackets perfectly. No more tracing vacuum leaks and watching the headlight covers slowly raise over time. Plus the electronic actuator seems to make the covers go up and down faster without causing them to slam. great for flashing lights at someone during the day.
    If you do purchase this, please watch the WCCC video on it. The directions were confusing to me.
