  1. Snow Zephyr

    I have to assume that you have a working heater in your Lincoln. (That's still pretty low down on my to-do list. (I think it was 80F here today.))
  2. 06H '40-'48 Holley Carburetors

    I suggest contacting Merv Atkins -- his contact info is on the LZOC page under sources. I would be shocked if he didn't have a couple dozen good or easily rebuildable units.
  3. oil pan

    I would check with Merv Atkins, his contact info is on the LZOC website under sources. I was at his yard a couple months ago and I'd be surprised if there was anything lincoln he didn't have there.
  4. Lincoln-Zephyr Trunk

    Nice, with the lid on my continental up I might be able to haul a potted tree. Lord knows it wouldn't impede my vision much.
  5. I've crossed over to the Lincoln pasture

    In my experience winters are for procrastinating and springs are for feeling rushed, but to each their own.
  6. Flushing Hydraulic System

    If all goes well I'll find out on sunday, stay tuned.
  7. Flushing Hydraulic System

    Well the system is still free flowing and functioning, lines were replaced during a late 80's/early 90's restoration as best as I can tell and appear to be in very good condition. I'm just trying to work out the best practice for removing the current hydraulic fluid and replacing as I know what's in there has been in place for some-time.
  8. Flushing Hydraulic System

    I probably should have been more specific, this would be for the hydraulic windows/top (brake system I have covered) -- is there a specific procedure to flush this system? To be honest I have yet to see where the ram for the top is located (not that I've looked very hard for it.) That would be the furthest point in the system I would assume.
  9. Can anyone offer some insight on the process of how to flush the hydraulic system on my '47 convertible -- system is still working fine but it's over-due and this isn't something my teacher covered in auto-shop (and the Ford service manual just says I need to do it, but no advice on how.) Thanks, R
  10. Lincoln V12 engine

    I would recommend getting in touch with Merv Adkins, his contact information is on the Lincoln Zephyr Owners Club website under sources. I was at his storage yard a few weeks ago and he had more V-12's than you can shake a stick at.
  11. 1939 Zephyr convertible on eBay

    Lovely car, good luck on selling it.
  12. One of those mysteries in life

    Wow, sorry to hear about this setback, but I'm glad it wasn't worse and that you had the needed spare parts on hand.
  13. A couple easy reassembly Q's (I hope)

    Ahh, thanks for the info I learned something today. I have the wrong horns it seems (I have trumpets, and require seashell as my VIN starts with 7H1724.) Something to add back onto my shopping list.
  14. A couple easy reassembly Q's (I hope)

    Ok, this is what I thought, looks like I have the wrong brackets, I can make it work for now until I can locate a pair of the proper brackets. Thanks for the help.
  15. I just picked up a small box of parts from Merv Adkins of items that were missing on my '47 Lincoln when I got it. I figured once I had the items assembly would become obvious and that was the case on all but two of the items (though perhaps I haven't stared at them long enough.) Item 1: the clock-set cable -- the length of this cable really limits the places where it could go but I'm not seeing an opening that's a good fit (and I've scanned photos of lots of lincoln dashes without spotting this knob) Item 2: The horns -- the photos I've seen of others make it look like they might have mounted where the hood spring/bracket connects with the hood but the brackets on my horn seem to have the holes spaced differently so i'm ruling that out unless told otherwise. The underside of my hood has some sort of spray on texture/insulation that may have filled previous bolt holes (if there were any) so if someone might be able to point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
