  1. I went for several years, driving in the village was a real kick for me...Beautiful place..
  2. It looks pretty sweet- and in my opinion if it drives, now you are able to tinker and fix as you go, Enjoy! It is refreshing to see people flock to look at the weathered original car as much as the 99 pt restore job. lets see what your working with, looks very clean, how are the floors??

  5. Show us more pics!! under hood and inside Please!
  6. The rear main seal consists of a series of baffles that reduces leakage at best, but I suspect the obvious main reason is to allow the clutch an outlet for any water / road debris to wash out and not in, the cotter is a primitive check valve so to speak...Oil pan is sealed like any other machine, clutch is in rear of oil pan. You must remove oil pan to remove flywheel. --The first mod. many of us do to our 12's is grind off the baffle, or as they call it , slinger- replace with v-8 style positive modern rope seal...
  7. I would listen to 40 tom...he seems pretty smart.
  8. I sprayed permatex copper on both sides of gasket, I cannot vouch for any benefit, made me feel like a pro..... looked pretty, maybe I though, it might seal some small scratches or such ....We will see!
  9. I corrected 2 self induced errors while tinkering this spring with my L-Z caused by my expectation of oil pressure loss and noisy valve action. The real neat thing about these cars is that they are just as cool under the hood as over, I mean the awesome 110 horse engine with the odd, but bullet proof ignition, dual water-pumps, coils, and all those head nuts, but it has to be quiet. I remember Les Keaton, old race car legend with a 37 Coupe could balance a nickel on edge on the rad cap while engine running...all you here are generator brushes slight click as they trace a fresh armature /commutator. --Oil pressure for the lifters is filtered and metered in the back of the block, a tiny "jet" or orifice prevents over blowing lifters and causing excessive oil misting in valve spring valley, the oil then exits the lifter rail to a ball which opens at 2lb or so pressure, and trickles on timing gear. I mistakenly upped the pressure on that spring, caused a worn / noisy timing gear, and noisier lifters, due to lack of actual hydraulic flow, we will see, haven't run it much yet..it did not change oil pressure at all, apparently the lifters do not require great volumes of oil..
  10. Well a couple weeks ago on a return trip from The Irish Hills in Michigan when the slight miss I had attributed to carburation error was a leaky head gasket on pass side head. I had used vintage Mccord copper gaskets , and they looked nasty, and leaky and rusty, for only being a few years old. I suspect improper head surface even though they had seen machine shop. I have learned that these are difficult to mount in most surfacer lathes. Im not gonna use those old gaskets ever...I'm pleased with the valley under intake, about 10,000 miles or so since overhaul, full synthetic oil changed occasionally seems to agree with it. clean! Modern felpro gaskets and Mr Scobels wonderfull looking new aluminum heads will hopefully function as well as the old iron ..If I'm driving old grey at The Gilmore this August, you'll know they work.
  11. I have never seen one bad before, and I suspect I caused it though a overzealous heavy thick paint job that gummed up the springs, which reduced the tension and allowed the plates to slip....ok now..But what a pain to remove / repair..
  12. Hey Ken, Did you paint the inner side of the balance plates??
  13. I'm glad you mentioned that, we have a problem, with mount availability, I suspect sagged motor mounts that allow the metal inside to rest on the inner shell is a source of a lot of Lincolns that sound like a truck inside..Do you have a good source for them, I think mine were made by Warren Rice 45 years ago!! I would renew them in a second if they were done well..
