1967 Cougar Owners:
To view our exploded view interactive diagram of the tilt steering column parts, click here.
Not correct for 1967 but works as a functional substitute. This vacuum reservoir mounts under the battery tray for factory tilt swing away steering columns found in the Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang / Thunderbird. Note that some 1968 Mustangs (without air) mount this tank on the passenger side rear apron. This is a double nipple tank, we also sell the single nipple tank for the 1969 tilt-tilt away systems.
The collapsing or imploding problem has been resolved on this vacuum reservoir with the addition of the ribbing for strength.
Replaces Ford Part # C8ZZ-3E547-A or C8SZ-3E547-A.
There is an active thread on the
Classic Cougar Community Forum discussing tilt columns and trouble shooting.
*NOTE* WCCC services all FoMoCo tilt and tilt-tilt away steering columns 1967-1979. Our shop rate for this service is $90 per hour and most columns with serious problems do need complete tear down and build up which usually takes 3-4 hours plus the cost of any replacement parts needed. To offset the cost of your rebuild, you can send us additional parts or parts columns and we will give you an in store credit. Turn around time is usually one week, but rush orders can be accomplished. For more details call us at 503-463-1130 and ask for Don W.
