    42-20 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect. Solved the stalling problem occurring at low speeds. I ordered the incorrect part first off. Jegs customer service took care of the problem with a great turnaround time

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong part It says that this will fit a 1980 cougar but the splines were larger. Had to tear everything apart twice.
