    V12 Lifter?

    That’s what we are here for. All of us have questions on this beast of a motor. I believe a number of guys on this forum know more about the v-12 than the Lincoln engineers who designed it. Good luck.

    I’m not Abe but the pics of the oil pan are from my 38. As to year of engine....who knows. The somewhat 1/2 round hole on left side is for the oil float I believe. Mine was crushed by the PO as it’s a little difficult to get the oil pan on while in car, and not get the float in the hole. The more informed guys can tell you how to do it I sure. I just made mine a dipstick by threading the red washer on the correct length sst rod

    V12 Lifter?

    Here’s a couple of pics of how I did mine. Please be aware, I’ve a lone wolf with no guidance from others as no one I know has worked on this kind of engine. In other words...this is how I did it. Right or wrong.
  4. I am very interested in seeing just how you swap out the dual coil pack. You should have a 6 volt system with positive ground as original. Pictures would be great. I not going to do it, but interested just the same. Good luck.
  5. If not satisfied with your new radiator then reach out to “Walker Radiator”. The sell a number of radiator sizes, both orginial and aftermarket. They have a web site. I’ve owned two Griffin radiators. Both failed with no warranty and they ain’t cheap.
  6. Yeah, it been 5 years and still waiting for right rear. I don’t think I’ll ever see it. Mmmm, the part I took pics of is your toe board. I don’t have enough to prove it one way or the other either. Hope Ken will post later and clear this up.
  7. Somewhere here are pics of the floor pans Paul Bradley sent me to replace ones in my ‘38 Zephyr coupe. Also a pic of what’s left of the drivers front side. As can be seen, the ones sent by Bradley aren’t even close to the orginials. Does anyone know what they may fit? Anyone else having problems with this guy?
  8. Bought years ago for my ‘38 Zephyr coupe. No way it will fit anything I have. Any interested parties before I use it for patch panel work? have been told it is: 46 to 48 Ford passenger left rear fender brace.
  9. Thanks, now I know it doesn’t fit the ‘38. Can make ‘yard art’ out of it now or maybe a patch panel somewhere.
  10. Cleaning up garage and taking inventory of parts for the ‘38 coupe that’s been up on stands for 5 years. I’m thinking I may not have the tallent or funds to complete her. Anyway, I purchased this part from somewhere and wrote “1938 left rear inner fender”” on it. Looking at car, I can’t see where it could fit the ‘38. Those anyone recognize this piece and know what it fits. Thanks.

  12. Seen in the swap meet at the NSRA National in Louisville Ky. Know nothing about it. Not my engine. Seller’s name is Mr. Truck out of Joplin, Missouri, phone #417-438-5200. Will have more pics later today.
  13. You might want to think about residual valves also. 10 pounds for drums, 2 pounds for disks. The brake guys say anytime the m/c could be lower than the rest of the system, they are a good idea.
  14. What year car? Columbia rear end? Early model rear end with 15+ foot speedo cable or the latter model with great box on firewall?
  15. If your interested, the name of the company that ‘can’ make your trim is “Northfield Forming”. If you were to get them motivated to do it, I would be willing to add my trim to the order. They may gear up for two cars. Other interested parties may also wish to join in. A pattern may be necessary. I would be will to donate a piece of upper side trim for the spear point pattern.
