  1. Advice Needed! Anyone have this happen???

    I drive the car about 30 miles yesterday and all was fine. Im going to flush the fluid and replace the accumulator with a hydrac one from spinning wheels. I also have to get the rotors turned which is another issue. The car sits alot unfortunately and we drive it once a month. It is possible air was in the system? Who knows.
  2. Advice Needed! Anyone have this happen???

    Fluid flushed 2 years ago along with an nos accumulator and pressure sensor
  3. So I need your Advice! Long story at the bottom, but the pump didn't pump on the reatta, it kept running. The car sits alot and I charged up the battery because we hadn' driven it in a few weeks. Anyway worked on it, replaced the pressure switch and the accumulator with good used ones, still gave the same problem both brake lights pump running no pressure. Did this across two days Now a week later I jumped into the car and guess What? All works as it should. Needless to say I'm a bit perturbed. I bought a working used teves unit. Im wondering if I should just go ahead and replace mine anyway. I don't like something working than not working and then working magically again. However if the problem is fixed it's fixed. Im wondering if it took a while for the pressure switch or accumulator to click in? I know the accumulator has to fill maybe it needed more time than I have it? I have a new hydrac from spinning wheels on the way. I have done panic stops, everything seems fine. "So I jumped into my wife's 88 reatta and the abs is not pressurizing no movement of fluid, nothing. The motor is continuously running. I swapped out the accumulator, pressure switch and the relay still the same still running no brakes pedal as hard as a rock all brake lights on. I'm thinking it is the pump motor maybe the brushes are worn? It also has a rubber hose under the accumulator compared to my 89 that has a steel line. "
  4. Teves Issues

    So now guess What? I jumped into the car and now the pump is working!. Brakes seem fine. I have no idea, I'm still going to replace the pump unit as in all my years owning reatta I've never had this happen and I don't trust it. I just got a working uses one in the mail
  5. Just bought a Volt!

    So I love all old cars but recently I thought I would also gave something newer so I bought a nicely and lightly used 2015 Volt. This was as a result of shopping for a late model buick. I jumped into the volt and fell in love with this thing! Anyone else out there have a volt?

    Yes tried it with a known working pressure switch and accumulator. The motor sounds very weak. At least in my opinion. Also when I removed the test accumulator there was no pressure at all just like when I removed the other one.

  9. Yes, I have the voltage reducer for my gauges, heater, radio. I was told that the starter is fine staying as 6 volt as well as the window pump. http://www.how-to-build-hotrods.com/6v-to-12v.html. I have a question about the wipers, what kind of 12 volt motor can I use for them? I dont want the vacuum ones anymore.
  10. Just FYI, this car has a newer v-8 (placed there before I got a hold of it and a messy conversion). All contacts are clean and tight, proper cables, timing set correctly, etc. I would prefer to have it over to 12 volt due to the accessibility of parts. Also the easier starting is a plus. Also, I want to place a hidden radio (12 volt) within the car. I am aware of the 6 volt systems, I have one in my '21 and in my '41 that work just fine. This '48 has always had issues due to the newer engine and the mismatched 6 volt electrical system.
  11. I am at a loss as to how to convert the window pump on my 48 lincoln, do I need a 6 volt adaptor for it? If so which one?
  12. So, what do I need to do with the window pump for a 12 volt conversion? Do I need an adaptor on it?
  13. Tire Size for '48 Continental

    Well here is what doesnt make any sense to me is the tire chart: https://www.dbtires.com/crossreference.html The continental calls for L-78-15 which is what I had on the car before this current set (no problems). L-78-15 is a larger size (according to the chart) than 760-15
  14. Tire Size for '48 Continental

    It will fit though? I dont mind a speedometer being a bit off. What is the difference between 700-15 and 760-15?
  15. I need for a 1948 Continental: Windshield (used in good shape is fine) Fender Skirts Window buttons
