  1. I wanted to mention to you guys that have die cast or pot metal problems. My grill for '39 Lincoln Zephyr was in need of repair. As I remember, somebody on this site had similar problems and mentioned this shop. I phoned the number, left my parts and I'm very pleased with the work and the price. Couldn't be better. The Pot Metal Repair # 707 621 5052.
  2. Abe, I'm glad to hear that you were able to do this. I didn't know if the front horizontal port were restricted in some way internally. But I think it's open to the same oil volume as the standard oil port that feeds the rest of engine. Great to see you've done it ! Chuck
  3. Thanks guys for your comments. The semi full flow oil filter idea seemed easier to me on the later v12's because you don't have to drill and tap two times as you do on the flathead v8's. Using the stock filter would be fine and the way to go if this were going to be a high point car. Unfortunately this '39 Coupe saw some hard times, 92,000 miles, a Buick v8 with dynaflow, Buick steering box, column and wheel also other mods plus being left in the wet for many years, no protection. The car is now a rolling chassis coming back to life with Colombia rear and Zephyr trans. The '46 - '48 v12 will be modified a little for power. The rear end is running later Ford Axels, not too difficult an improvement. So from the outside with original color this car should look stock. I wanted to mention the engine is using Hogan Heads, solid lifters and the crankcase ventilation will come from pan to oil separator with vacuum from check valve, exhaust. These modifications are visible but not that bad. Chuck
  4. I'm interested in knowing if a semi full flow filter can be installed in the later lincoln v12's. I know the method on the v8's but I'm wondering if you could block the rear horizontal oil passage in the same way and come from either the top or left oil port to filter out of filter to front oil port on rear of block. Merv Adkins sent me a nice diagram of the oil passageways and it looks like this may work. I may be way off on this, but is it possible and does anyone know if it's been tried ? Thanks Chuck
  5. Thanks Ken, I'll check Dave at Macs.
  6. Le Baron Bonney did send me samples to choose from and I was ready to order. This was an upholstery kit for a '39 L.Z. Coupe. Then I hear of the bankruptcy, I think I was too late. Are there any other upholstery suppliers for this car ? Chuck
  7. What a great movie and memory for that special car ! Thanks Ken
  8. Thanks for those great replies. Photo shows it all. Chuck
  9. I'm in the process of the rebuilding of my 39 LZ Coupe. I'm fitting the fenders and doors. My question, does the rear fender welt proceed down to the rear quarter curve stainless trim or does it stop where the fender meets the curve section ? Thanks guys Chuck
  10. Yes they are still for sale. If interested you can email cdan34@att.net or ph 415 388 2882 Thanks Chuck
  11. 15 inch rims, hub caps, beauty rings in good shape. Tires have good tread, some blems on WW. $450. or best offer. cdan34@att.net - 415 388 2882 tread
  12. It would have fooled me, just a good, after market, chrome job that lasted maybe 50 yrs. Now sand and paint ! Thanks
  13. I have a '39 L.Z. Coupe with a chromed windshield frame, It looks original. I have painted all the window frames, steering column, dash etc. with the original color (thanks Ken). But know, before sanding the chrome down to paint, I'm thinking some cars could have come from the factory this way. Anybody know ? Thanks Chuck Daniels cdan34@att.net
  14. Ryan, I have checked with Merv he dosen't have any good rims. Thanks for your response. Chuck
  15. My '39 LZ Coupe needs four 16 inch 4.5 or 5 inch wide rims. These came on some Ford, Lincoln, Merc and Ford trucks. It would be nice if they had the hub cap clips. Chuck 415 388 2882 cdan34@att.net
