  5. Hello MY73, Ford speak for the bumper arms is "Front Bumper Isolator Arm". The front bumper arms for the Cougar are different from the Mustang version. Since the Cougar has a metal front bumper and the Mustang a urethane, the bumper reinforcement and arms had design differences. The isolator was basically a rubber block mounted inside a steel channel and worked fine then since the "Crash" bumpers were something new and the big three were an in a learning curve trying to comply with new government safety regs. The engineers had no idea that almost 50 years later we would be dealing with a design that held water and would swiss cheese itself. A problem compounded by the fact that the 73 Cougar and Mustang were the last of the first generation of those vehicles and made the arms a one year only part. The 74 Cougar and Mustang were both totally new vehicles with no previous model interchange. The arms in the E Bay listing posted by Lazarus look to be an exceptional deal. Figuring the attrition rate of this part from accidents, normal wear and tear and the swiss cheese factor and you can see how finding decent functional used versions are becoming tough. I would definitely watch the E Bay sale. Considering West Coast Classic Cougar wants almost $160.00 for one Cougar arm, the E Bay listing for the pair looks pretty good. I would also do as Hemikiller posted and treat them to a good cleansing bath and saturate with some Rust Bullet. Good luck with your project. :)

  6. Piston stop tool, Hmmm, I just use a pencil with an eraser on it after making sure the damn rubber won't fall off! Works close enough for me to feel when it reached TDC. I'm sure a fancy tool would be a bit more accurate though. The reason for using a pencil with an eraser is not to dislodge any carbon.

  7. I did not measure but I would say a few inches. I can tell you that it will collapse forward without ever hitting the headliner. Here is a pic of the seat in the all the way forward position. I plan on recovering the back seat with the material from the 2014 as well. The style is VERY close to the original just way more comfortable with deeper buckets and bolsters.
