    1941 Lincoln cabriolet

    I really am considering selling this-This was my dads favorite year-I think thats why I sold my Hudson convertible to buy this-The car was part of an estate and sat for quite a number of years but before he died he had the motor freshened up with new rings and bearings.I believe that because I pulled the oil pan down to replace the oil pump and while the pan was down I popped a main cap as well as a rod cap off and I see no wear on the bearings plus I can still see hone marks on the cylinder walls.I also pulled the intake and it was pretty darn clean.The car runs well but smokes when she gets hot, now I don't know if maybe a ring cracked because the car sat for 30 plus years and when they started it a ring was stuck? I would suggest the motor be rebuilt because the car is really a decent car .The car goes down the road nice and tight.The bumpers-grille and other brightwork have been replated in the past and look good.The top works as it should-all the gauges with the exception of the speedometer work-I don't know if the overdrive works because I don't know how it works.Horn works as well as the wipers.There is no heating system. The vent windows as well as the fresh air vent need attention because they don't open.The window regulators in the doors also need to be looked at because the windows need help closing.Now on to the sheetmetal-it appears the outer rockers have been replaced,there is some small holes up by the front in the area where the back part of the fender mounts-i'll show this with some underneath pics-I think this was a common area because I had 4 post war Lincolns that had the same issue.The floors are solid as well as the trunk.The splash pan is the worst part of the whole car and Ill show pics of that.The following is what I have done so far.I have put on all new brakes-brake lines-brake hoses-wheel cylinders-mastercylinder-wheel bearings-seals-exhaust-fuel lines-radiator hoses-plugs, wires-coker radials -4 shocks.I am located in Wallkill N.Y 12589The car is a 10 footer and really is not that bad-I have been around and have owned some really nice old cars since my early 20's and that was 35 plus years ago2nevets@optonline.net for more photos $32,000

    v12 oil leak

    going to try it again the only thing I did not use rtv on was the cork gasket itself it seems like it would be a waste since the part of the pan that meets the gasket is thin and I don't see how rtv would help but Im going to try

    v12 oil leak

    I have a dilemma here-I have motor oil coming out of the hole in the rear compartment of the oil pan-now it only does this when the motor is hot and the oil is thin and when I go up a hill-My question is this Since I already replaced the oil pan gasket and the rear cork strip that goes in the main bearing cap groove-is it possible the oil is leaking thru the rear main seal? it only does this going up hill when the oil is forced to the rear of the pan-its a pretty good leak Is the rear main seal a split type seal or rope? Again thanks for the help Steve

    Road Draft Tube Question?

    I dont mean to hijack this thread but I am in the same dilemma- I also am running an early draft tube on my 41-My question is the oil fill cap on mine is solid and not like the later breather type caps-I assume that is ok? I also am running a pcv valve-
