  1. "Mssr Bratoe", I'am interested in the fog light housing. Please "E" mail me at Thank you, Larry Butcher
  2. What side is it? There are right. and left . Do you have the pr. or just 1? The # is cast in the inside verticle edge.
  3. Not quite---- I pulled a 59A V 8 out of a '42 LC cab. There was an early 59A type frt. cross member "bubble gum " welded in across the frame, with a cold chisel and a few wacks it was removed. . You'll need this and longer rad hoses--- Larry
  4. Gerry, Check out pg. 332 of the '36-'48 Lincoln Chassis parts catalog. It shows the whole exploded view of the hot water heater system . This should help- Larry
  5. Looks to be what is left of a hot water heater valve that is screwed into the head. Can't find it in my Lincoln parts book, but Ford part #91A-15142 for flathead Ford( 59A) may work-Larry
  6. You said ,"1948 LC " ? There is a round access plate on drivers side floor . Perhaps the floor panel was changed out and no opening provided.. Climb under and look up directly above the master cylinder , that is where the plate should be..
  7. I did some research and found informstion taken from "The Lincoln Continental" by OCee Rtch, published by Floyd Clymer. The very 1st book i purchased on old cars in 1965. In the tech part it mentions the valve as "valve-( hydraulic tappet bypass). P/N 86H-6544; Also in the 2 parts books I have, it is mentioned also. You need it if you are keeping your hyd. lifters and hyd cam. The 2 you show are at least 2 available at the time. The tops are "staked" to lock the cap . This unit is delicate with a small spring and very small ball bearing as a check valve. They can be cleaned and reinsalled. You may want to check on our website under "sources" and purchase new one. "The Late Great " Hunt Barrington knew this part . A whole article on this was mentioned in either early "Continental Comments" or "The Way of the Zephyr" . When I get the time I will dig it out. Anyone else ---jump on now and tell us what you know .---Later
  8. This small valve has been discussed before and I will try and find out where I saw the article--- TWOZ or "Continental Comments" Years ago . Give me a few days.
  9. Matt, From the photos I looked at , it looks to be in real good condition. The mileage stated looks to be possible. All of the hard to get parts seem to be there- lower trim, outside rear view mirrors, correct air cleaner. Most had O.D. . I think I can see an overdrive button on the left side of the dash. I t would be nice to see how the trunk was finished out. With the almost flat deck lid, the Continentals often had leakage problem in the trunk. If you do make a vistit to see the car, start it up and run it to warm it up and see if it overheats. Listen to the exhaust, and general sound of engine. Put dealer tags on and take it out on the road. Check ou steering, does it wander? Try the brakes- make noise? pull to one side?. If you can, have it put up on a lift check ou t the sheet metal - are the floors solid? sheet metal patches? any leals- oil, gear oil, brake fluid. How does the wiring look? old, tattered. , patched up, or good ? If possible, contact the Lincoln and Continenal Owners Club and see if there is someone in the club that may live near by could check it out or meet you there? If you really like the car - offer him $25 K. Pick a number and hold the line! Good Luck Larry
  10. Years back , when I painted the dash of my '38 LZ Conv. Coupe, I used the correct color ; in "Nitro" Lacquer --- what a mistake! Too brittle! ! You could sp[it at it from 10 ft. and it would chip! The folks above used a better paint
  11. Thanks to all who were interested in the s.s. trim --- all have been sold--- Larry
  12. 38Shorttopconv. "E mail me - and I can give the details of the s.s mouldings you need- Thank you, Larry
  13. Roy, Sorry I did not get your call. Did you get my greeting on my ans. machine? The hood moulding sides should be the same for all models. I will send you the length. I would like to sell all pcs. I do not have the other parts . I do have an extra "airplane " hood ornament. Needs work $25---
  14. Complete 10 pc. set of S.S.beltline moulding for 1938 Lincoln Zephyrs ( 10 pcs.) very good conditioins, a few clips- $65+ $25 S&H Larry Butcher 224 Clubside Dr. Taneytown, MD 21787/ 1-410-756-5310/
