    1937 Lincoln K Overheating

    Look closely at water pump---you describe no circulation--wrong impellor, loose impellor, belt loose...I once fixed a Dodge Bros. car, guy pumped unit with grease till it was full, (not bearing or packing, but pump chamber) ---pull stat, run with out while checking stat--hot water opens..... How did it perform before the pump rebuild?

    Tires/Tubes for 1947 LC

    They all had 15'' tires!! Its ironic, 25 years ago we were the odd ducks with 16'' on our prewar cars...,now anything smaller than that is odd.... I'm pretty sure 42- up till the late 50's were 15, and yes they will work on your 40, same bolt pattern..

    Tires/Tubes for 1947 LC

    Forget those humongous collector Denman looking 3'' whites----allow the lines of the car to shine, without those white side walls..Wheels are solid one piece steel, and will work with tubeless I assure you.......

    Tires/Tubes for 1947 LC

    I would suggest, if your not broke, and you are going to actually drive the car, install modern tubeless tires. I use modern steel belted radials Firestones on my original 40 wheels, no tubes no leaks..no nonsense I wore out my repop deluxe champions w/ tubes...lots of leaks, flats etc....15's are common and cheap.. and safe. Rural tire shops service tubes, and can even install them, Skippy at the local tire man has not a clue (you will see)

    speedometer cable and wiper control questions

    I doubt either will work, look on ebay or call Chris Herrill for easy good correct parts...Lincoln is much larger, longer automobile than similar Ford....Do you have overdrive ?? that will lengthen it as well......You could probably make something work, but if you have to chase parts, chase correct ones...they are plentiful! Remember, that every authentic part you install adds that much more value to your machine! heres 2 pics, I think grey knob may be ford, fuzzy pic chrome iz lz for sure both on the bay...........

    Transmission or shift linkage

    CHANCES ARE IT NEEDS LUBE---UNLESS SOMEONE LOOSENED THE LOCK NUTS, CHANGED THE ADJUSTMENT ON THE RODS.(UNLIKELY) SPRAY THE SHIFT LEVERS WITH BRAKE CLEAN , PUT GREASE GUN ON NIPPLE AND PUMP---- --IF GEAR IS JAMMED...LOOK AT THE LEVERS ON THE COLUMN UNDER HOOD AT FIREWALL------TRY TO PUT THEM ALL IN THE NEUTRAL ALL EVEN POSITION---OR, FIGURE CAR IS IN FIRST, ONLY ONE LEVER SHOULD BE UP OR DOWN, FOR 1 GEAR---IF THE WONT MOVE, HAVE FRIEND ROCK CAR OR PRESS CLUTCH TO RELIEVE GEAR TRAIN TENSION THAT MAY BE HOLDING GEARS (ENGINE OFF) DO NOT FORCE ANYTHING---LOOK AND UNDERSTAND WHICH LEVER IS WHICH--GREY PHOTO IS MY CAR, I ALWAYS PARK IN REV--THAT MUST BE THE RAISED LEVER--SO FIRST WOULD BE THAT LEVER DOWN..SEE WHAT YOURS IS...

    1940 LINCOLN BRUNN TOWN CAR (HISTORICAL CAR)

    Well said, that's the whole point, it is the end of an era, but for a few dignitaries in these holdover autos----Brunn Body in New York also fitted some GM vehicles of this new , non custom body era...
  11. Hi gang, I've got the scoop on a very cool one off Lincoln Brunn for sale, or about to come up on the market--This is one of the hand built - special ordered- home office- direct from Edsel Ford's desk kind of special cars...built for family in a time when the elite wore high hats and participated in very formal events "On the Town" . The kind of arrival expected for red-carpet events... The car was built for Edsel's bro in-law Ernst Kanzler, then made its way into the defense department fleet in the war years. (defense dpt Robert Lovett) ASKING PRICE 42,000 FOR RUNNING DRIVING AUTOMOBILE!! The other special thing about this car is the fact that it went back to the factory for a front end facelift, (similar to the Sunshine Special) used by presidents...The car holds a very special footnote in history, whether you think it to be a thing of beauty or merely a curiosity, as H-V-12 fans, ya gotta appreciate what a neat thing it is---sliding glass partition,sliding soft top over Chauffeur, optional trunk model -- etc--mostly original, obviously maintained over its lifetime....it's twin was driven by Mrs. Ford.... enjoy..
