Yeah, the rust is frustrating. Especially since this is the first time I've ever worked on a car, and nobody in my life is into cars, so the only way for me to soak up knowledge and techniques is through the internet.Fighting rust is a neverending story with the cougar eh
or only a puller
Are the 2 options
how did you heat?
Been there done that with a Drum on a Lincoln Continental... Never with the Cougar though. Everything on it was properly lubed when put together.I've literally shattered a rusted on rotor using a puller when I first had to replace my OEM ones. Heat and a 5lb hammer was doing nothing. Make sure you're extra liberal with the never-seez when you clean it up after.
