    Description

    Used vacuum release valve for the tilt / tilt away steering column found in the Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang. This vacuum solenoid releases the steering column for the swing away function. These vacuum tilt solenoids are tested and guaranteed to work.

    Bench testing the 1967-69 tilt away release solenoid: Verify that there is continuity between the two electrical spade connectors. No continuity means the the windings in solenoid windings are bad. This is a bad solenoid. Next, put vacuum to the lower port (10-17 inches of vacuum) any handheld or car vacuum source will work. The solenoid housing goes to ground, and the spade connector goes to 12v, when power is applied, (you will hear a clicking sound) the vacuum should drop out on a functioning solenoid.

    There is an active thread on the Classic Cougar Community Forum discussing tilt columns and trouble shooting.

    Ford part # C7ZZ-3D536-A.


    *NOTE* For tilt column service, you can contact Tony Augustine at 6t8cougarguy@gmail.com. Tony is a trusted colleague of WCCC and we've sent many customers his way since our column specialist retired last year.

    I sent in my '67 one, with one wire connector, and got one back that looked similar (T-Bird maybe?) but has two wires so will not hook up to my electrical so will return it. They need to check it is correct before sending.
