Re: 96 Cougar 3.8L head removal
Hello fellow Cougar owner... who I assume has a blown head gasket like mine. Imanaged to get that bracket off without disassembling the whole works, but it wasn't fun from what I remember. You have to try different combos of sockets and wobbles to make it work. It's been a while since I ripped My engine apart but I think I used an extension with a wobble end built on the tip. As far as I know it is a Snap-On design (I love my Snap-On tools), but may come in different brands. I never did finish my heads though. I have a 5.0 H.O goin in my cat.
