    Lincoln V12 hydraulic lifters

    Looking for a set of NOS or good used hydraulic lifters for 1938-48 Lincoln Zephyr. Thanks
  2. Needing two radio static suppressors that mount on the coil for 1941 Ford Mercury or Lincoln. Good used or NOS? I have the Zenith radio part number if that would help. Please pm me with what you have. Thanks JW
  3. Looking for the two radio static suppressors that mount on top of the coil above the ignition condensers. Does anybody have any good used or NOS extras?

    39 Zephyr Interior Option

    There was an article in TWOTZ in the 1980's about a good original 1938 Zephyr coupe with original leather interior. Pictures were included, I will try to attach a couple. The headliner and package shelf were leatherette. An upholstery guy told me leather was too heavy and too stretchy to use for the headliner, it would end up sagging. If you look closely at the photos, each of the seams across the headliner had an exposed welt, it was not just a plain seam. The seat upholstery shown in the photos is original for 1938, but I don't know if the pattern for 1939 was the same. 38interior0001.pdf38interior0002.pdf38interior0003.pdf
  5. Thanks for all your replies. I attached a photo that clears up the questions, at least for 1941. The 41 dash has 4 holes to the left of the steering column. The hole to the far left is the light switch. The next hole towards the steering column was for the heater fan switch. The third hole was for the defroster cable. The fourth hole (nearest the steering column) had a dummy knob when a hot water heater was installed. If the car had no heater at all, there were three dummy knobs on the dash. I attached a photo of the dummy knob too. There is a chrome bezel around the heater fan switch that the knob seats into. Does anybody have a good used bezel they are willing to part with? John
  6. Does anyone have a 1941 Lincoln with the hot water heater option? I am trying to figure out the dash switches. On the hot air heater, there were two cables (one for the defroster and one for the hot air exchanger under the hood) and one fan switch, so three holes in the dash. For the hot water heater, there were only two holes needed, one cable for the defroster valve open or closed, and one fan switch that controlled fan speed and "direct" or "indirect" heat, blowing out the front of the unit for direct heat, or out the back of the unit for indirect heat. So was the third hole plugged with a dummy switch or knob? If someone has one, I would love to see a photo of the switch, or a description of how the switch and cable were situated. I am probably missing the switch bezel, mine just doesn't look "finished" like it should. There was probably some kind of service bulletin or an installation manual issued at the time, but I have never seen one. If there is one out there, I would love to have a copy. Thanks for the help.

    ZEPHYR WIPER BLADES

    Joe, try Ficken wiper services. John
  8. Wow, great thread for me. I am in the midst of restoring a 1941 Zephyr Club Coupe. It really is a beautiful body style, and they are very few restored examples around. I am especially interested in the exhaust system problems. I have an exhaust pipe on the shelf, ready to install in the next couple of months, that came from a well known antique car supplier. Would you share with me by private message where you got the one that was too short? Beautiful job on a beautiful car! JW

    Paint Code for Interior of '40 Cabriolet

    I found good original paint inside the wheels on my car, always protected by the tires, no sun to fade the paint. Good luck.

    6 Volt Jump with 12 Volt portable Jumper

    Will a bad coil cause a slow starter speed when the engine is warm like rockitdoc describes? I was thinking a weak coil would have a weak spark, but not affect the cranking speed...

    Source for cross over exhaust pipe 1938 v12

    Waldron Exhaust in Michigan says on their website they have the entire exhaust system including crossover pipe. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    1941 Lincoln license plate light lens

    Thanks for the input, everybody I have talked to has the orange peel variety. This oddball one is too perfect a fit to be for a different car, maybe another vendor somewhere along the way made it. Back into the spares box it goes...
  15. After 15 years of owning my car and mostly lurking on this forum, it is time to send my 41 Zephyr club coupe to the shop for assembly. The body is already painted and has lots of work done, but it is too much for my skills to turn this pile of parts into a running car. Putting them back together is way harder than taking them apart... My question for today: I have three license plate light lenses. Two of them have an "orange peel" finish on the inside surface of the lens, and one has a smooth finish on the inside surface of the lens. Just sitting on my table, they fit and look the same, but with a light behind them there could be a difference. The smooth back one looks and fits too good to be a reproduction. Plus, it's glass not plastic and has rust stains on it, so it is definitely old. One of these three was original equipment on this early production 41, but I don't know which one. Have any 41 owners noticed these two different lenses? What is on your car? Thanks for your help, John Walker
