    Description

    Please Note:

    Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.

    "Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt.  The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.

    Identified with the straight bracket compared to the 1968 relay which has a bend. These relays are tested by our electrical department. Keep in mind we have a reproduction substitution for this part.

    Ford part # C7ZA-3E553-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.


    This icon means that we're looking to buy this part! WCCC is a buyer of used and NOS hard to find 67-73 Mercury Cougar parts. Usually we give an in store credit of 50% of our web price for parts delivered in hand or by carrier to our Brooks, Oregon location. If you're not interested in store credit, just shoot us an email and we will let you know if it's is something we can pay cash for. We do not send cash for parts in advance but we often can compensate you within hours of receiving the goods. Sometimes a 50% wholesale bid will not be enough to entice you to sell. It never hurts to ask if we can up our bid! If it is an in demand item that we have requests for we often can pay more. Just email us if you have questions or want to share pictures.

    Helpful tip: 

    For those having trouble getting their tilt away mechanism to activate, here's a tip that might eliminate one possibility. The vacuum motor relay. First off in order to test it it's simple. The prongs are numbered 1 thru 4. Using an ohm meter check continuity between prongs 1 and 4 then check to 2 and 3. The prongs may have some corrosion that need cleaning but if you can't get continuity between those points then the relay is not functioning properly. There are six pinch points that hold the plastic cap of the relay in the metal box it's contained in. You can remove the relay from its box and view the internal which includes a coil which connects 2 and 3 and a copper tab that makes contact with ground and the case in prongs 1 and 4. The contact points after 50 years will have corrosion that you can clean off. I use a flat razor blade to clean what looks like contact points on an ignition distributor. Delicately clean the other parts without damaging anything. There's a reasonable chance it will start working again. If after this you still don't have continuity then check with WCCC for the aftermarket replacement. Hope this helps!

    I received the right side exhaust manifold shortly after I ordered it. My 302 engine is coming along, so hopefully it may be ready to drop into my 1970 Maverick, which is very similar to my first 1970 Maverick that I had from 1970 to 1986, the...
