  1. Thank you. I would like to have the mechanical systems fully inspected but it does need a full restoration.
  2. This winter in Michigan I have not been able to do much on my 1938 Zephyr sedan. She needs a lot of work and with the loss of my trusted mechanic I need to look at other options.

The ashtray on the right was pulled out so we could monitor oil pressure digitally. Is it for the ashtray? I am going to tackle it tomorrow. It’s been awfully hot here!
  10. I have not. I wanted to get in behind to see if anything obvious stuck out. Everything was working fine up until 2 weeks ago. Someone recommended making sure the cable sheath was still intact and it looks as though it is. The cables look okay but it is an 82 year old car. I am pretty sure they are original. I pulled the throttle out to see if the choke would go back in all the way and it is stuck out too. It seems like the slides for the choke and the throttle are getting jammed at a certain point like something might have dropped down. Could too much tension on the cables cause th
  11. Still having a hard time figuring out what is going here so I took some pictures before I disconnect anything.
