    1939 LZ Rims

    Will try again, they may be closed during the outbreak, I tried multiple times Thanks Ray
  2. Cannot find any rims, is something available that will fit? Prefer 16 inch to my non original 15 inch. Although may have to accept what I have. Thank you everyone

    Tires and Rims

    Thank you everyone, this is food for thought. This would explain why the car came with no skirts, will have to check with them on and also the spare in the trunk. I wonder if plain bias ply would work.
  4. Looking to ordering tires for my 39 LZ 4 door, noticed that I do not have the regular 16 inch rims but rather the 15 inch. Diamond Back tires say's the 820*15 Auburn Deluxe tire would be about an inch less that the regular tire diameter. Can someone verify the overall tire width inflated? This may help me if I do not have to buy 16 inch rims.
  5. Thanks, I called all my sources and the only one I'm having difficulty with is Merve in California. Playing phone tag. Anyway today I made one it's not to bad I will paint it tomorrow and see what it looks like. Glad to know I have a source if needed.
  6. I have gotten good luck with PB Blaster. Used over a couple of day's things loosen up. Then flush it out with WD then a very light oiling.
  7. Can anyone help? I lost the part off the rear view mirror. the little plate that holds the mirror to the post.
  8. Received it back from Clean Sweep in record time and works beautifully. Very reasonable price

    Flipper Window

    Yes, I purchased them from Boos and it required seaming the gasket, Made a jig to keep the ends together and glued them in place. Worked well. The hole in question is closed at the top and I am concern about it because once the upholstery is in it would be difficult to work with. The old gasket did have it opened all the way through.If it was a drain then where would the water go I never saw a drain hole. Yes I was intimidated with the installation , but once I got into it and with the help of liquid soap it slipped into the frame.
  11. Can someone tell me if a part is missing from the frame? I have a spare hole in the gasket and not sure what fills it, the old gasket also had the hole. Is it possibly a drain? 1939 LZ 4 door sedan.
  12. Finally sent it to Kent at Clean Sweep Windshield Wiper Repair, he has been doing repairs for 40 years. Pleasant man, likes Fords and Lincoln
  13. Thank's guys, will do both. Called Wiperman this am and he still still concerned, but I will send him photos of it.
  14. Thank's Tom, I called them and they have nothing but did refer me to Ficken . Unfortunately 1937 to 1939 wipers where oddballs and cannot be rebuilt with any certainty of success. They had a funky speed regulator installed in them which produced a constant vacuum leak. i was told to look for maybe a Cadillac motor or some other large car with similar parts.After 35 years in the business he could not help unfortunately.
  15. Thanks Ray, I may have to get someone to rebuild it if I cannot get a kit. Would prefer a kit.
