  1. So, I got all the hardware off to remove the interior door panel except the push button. How does one remove this item? Thanks, in advance. S
  2. That is going to be tough. Molestation has been rampant, if not the rule.
  3. Good question. Logic would say yes, but that doesn't always follow with these. Maybe someone else can help here. My car was sitting in a field for years before I got her and in pretty bad shape, so hard to tell.
  4. Join the LZOC. You won't find better info anywhere. BTW, your car is one of the first 'unibodies' Frame and body are one. Makes it a bit more 'challenging'.
  5. This OD wiring diagram shows an early and late version. The only difference appears to be the 'solenoid actuating coil' and solenoid holding coil' between pin #4 and ground for the early version vs a straight pin #4 to ground for the late version. How would I know if my solenoid requires the 'actuating and holding' coils since both coils appear to be three pins?

  7. My '41 Continental has the Warner OD unit. I have the wiring diagram from Warner that shows a 4 pin relay (mine is 5 pin) and a 2 pin solenoid (mine is 3 pins). Question is: what are the extra pins on the relay and solenoid supposed to connect to?:confused: Thanks, in advance. S
  8. Hi everyone, Well, time to get the OD wired and working on my Dad's '41 Connie and ran into a small snag....I hope. My relay on the firewall has 5 terminals and my solenoid down on the Warner has 3 terminals. But, my Warner OD manual only shows 4 wires to the relay and 2 wires to the solenoid. So, that either means 1) I have the wrong manual , 2) the manual is in error, :confused: 3) one terminal on each device is not used (this is what I hope the answer is ) 4) I have the wrong relay and the wrong solenoid (I hope not) :mad:, or 5) some combination of these I would prefer not to bore you with. Any help out of this dilemma most appreciated. She really wants the OD to work the next time we venture down the highway. Thanks, as always, in advance. S
  9. I had (and still have) this issue with mine when hot. Turns over cold fine. Drive until heated up and try to restart and starter drags and sometimes won't turn it. Turns out (ha!) that my starter and flywheel gear were not aligned and had a 'high' spot where the starter would bind. Had to do some red-neck adjustments of the mounting holes to get better alignment. Now, it works better, but not fixed. I'll take her apart next summer and try to do it right. Hopefully, it won't mean removal of that lump of an engine. BTW, I went through all the usual 6volt cable and extra tight connections issues first. Also replaced the relay and rebuilt the starter.
  10. The Warner is pretty complex and some of the bits are spendy (ask me how I know). But, it is essentially an automatic. Shift it into OD and forget it.
  11. Maybe the lower ratio was put in Lincolns to give them similar acceleration since they would have been heavier than Fords?
  12. As you probably know, any history like famous or notorious previous owners can increase value quite a bit. Do you have documentation of the previous owners? Any feathers in the back seat?
