  1. My 42 Continental coupe has always carried 32 pounds 700x15. I have had L C since 1955 and always carried 32 all around
  2. I have a complete front bumper . Did you find one? I am in Ft. Myers, Fl. Closing out parts so we can make a deal.
  3. Are you sure that is not the temp. wire?
  4. 1046 or early 47. Wing hood emblem and hex hub caps were used in 46 and early 47
  5. Those do not look like Mark II hubcaps. No nuts showing on the caps fins. It has been a long time since I had one but the Mark hubcaps bolted together.
  6. The Lincoln is a 42. The bumpers and no driving lights prove it. I would guess that it is Grotto Blue but the camera changes the shade. I had a Sheldon gray 42 that looked different on different film photos. Looks like a very nice rare LC one of 200 built in 41 42 production for coupes.
  7. Go thru firewall. Will try for photo . Not thru transmission cover. Lee
  8. the flasher mounts on the electrical breaker bolt. The clock has ground L brackets that holds in in to the dash and the adjustment cable to set the clock How about a picture?
  9. I have one also your voltage relay is wrong. They are both aluminum (silver colored) I have a 42 coupe number 160 buil Dec. 14,1941
  10. I use Earl Brown Jr. and have had good service.
  11. Back in the 50's and 60 we always had a spare in the trunk. Going to all the national LCOC meets from 1959 to 1980 and driving one of our Lincoln 's daily we never had a flat or needed the spare.. Spare condensors were needed twice. A V12 will run on 6 but weak. Lee
  12. There are two different tail lites on 40 and 41 Lincoln's One is flat the other is the one you have in your ad. I'll look up the parts numbers tomorrow. I bought and sold L C's at our upholstery shop in Ohio. I had 5 41's at one time in our showroom. Lee
  13. 4 post on wiper switch unable to find correct route M TK PK R any help?
  14. The resister on the firewall cuts the 6volt to 4 volt left side top bolt right side bottom bolt. Factory manual gives this for the wiring manual. My 42 Continental runs great this way Skip rebuilt the coil.
  15. What is the problem with the switch? Set screw removes the key assembly and two screws remove the electric switch. The only way I could get the lock assembly off was a cut off tool and did away with the lock cable. My car was bought with out keys and the dealer cut the cable in order to turn the steering wheel. I replaced the column with a 1947 that didn't have the lock. It looks fine and nobody has ever noticied it. 1942 and 46 were the only postwar cars that I have ever had with the lock column. Never seen any replacement parts as they are clamped to the column and the key assembly. You can take the lock out of the column and just leave the hole but make sure you get the block out so it doesn't lock the column while you are driving.
  16. So you have a standard Lincoln and not a Continental All Continentals 1942 to 1948 have the first photo and all standard Lincolns (42 Zephyr name dropped in 1946) have the second photo.
  17. Is the photo correct one. The key turns and pulls out and push starter button. A 42 to 48 Lincoln Continental key switch has 2 bolts in the bottom of dash and 46 still has a lock column cable running up to the steering column. I am not sure about the standard 46 Lincoln as I have only had Lincoln Continental;s. Do you have the wheel on the back?
  18. I have always replaced clutch and pressure plate with a NAPA Ford truck. Lee
  19. I had real good service and quality work reasonable price on pot metal and chrome on my 1942 from Dan's Polishing Shop Adamsville, Tn. 38310 731 632-0103
