  1. I made a new shaft from clutch cross shaft and bushings. Same size as the Zephyr pedal shaft.
  2. The top cover ,the wider one is from a V8 Ford. The narrow one is correct for the V12
  3. Yep! I’ve done a couple of them.
  4. My V12 is the later version , 46-48 and it’s bored to 2 15/16” + .020 . No heating problems at all, runs well.
  5. So how does the rear main drain pipe affect oil pressure?? My 1940 V8 doesn’t even have one
  6. Why would you want 12 volts ?🤷‍♂️
  7. The only plug that needs to be removed is the one holding the lock cylinder . Replacement plugs are available or some folks thread the hole and install a set screw.
  8. 32-48 is a direct bolt up , input shafts are the same. The later 49-53 flathead will work also if you use the truck or Mercury bell housing and clutch disc.
  9. Even though the glove box pulls and the ash tray pulls look a like the mounting holes are spaced different. The wiper bezel is threaded with a nut on the underside. You’ll need to remove it to get it all back together. The shaft has a spring on it so when you removed the knob the shaft fell through. To remove the door handles simply push in on the door panel at the old escutcheon and it will expose the base of the handle , rotate the handle and you’ll see a pin, drive the pin out with a drift or similar tool and the handle will slide off the square shaft.
  10. I’ve had NOS ones and they will separate, probably because they are now 80 years old. I put NOS ones on my 39 and they lasted no time before they came apart. I clamped them back together and welded a piece of steel to tie the pieces together. I know it kinda defeats the purpose of the rubber but at least they still holding up. The originals were vulcanized and I know of no one that can redo them. Same with the muffler bracket. Had a nos one and it let go first.
  11. Skips bearing comes with instructions. I havent done one personally but I’ve seen the instructions. . Not too difficult if you have the torque tube out.
  12. The center driveshaft bearing for the Lincoln is same as Ford 78-4658. Skip Haney (the coil guy) makes a replacement for that .
