  1. got 6 volts

    I have an 6 volt LED in my brake-light, and a 6 volt alternator (mostly because I rarely have the opportunity to drive far enough to get a good charge with the generator which sits on a shelf waiting for this to no longer be the case.) But yes, 6 volts is just fine.
  2. wanted

    Merv Adkins had quite a few (dozens?) of them last time I visited his lot, might want to give him a call, his info is in the LZOC website sources list.
  3. Remove Body off Chassis

    Like others this level of work is beyond what I think I'm capable of. But I'm glad to see other's have the skills and patience. (Maybe someday I'll be brave enough to take on such a project, but I'm not there yet.)
  4. 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.))
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Flushing Hydraulic System

    If all goes well I'll find out on sunday, stay tuned.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 1939 Zephyr convertible on eBay

    Lovely car, good luck on selling it.
  15. 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.
