  1. Does anyone have the dimensions/template of the trunk carpet for the 1940 Lincoln Zephyr Sedan? I thought I saw a detailed article on it in the Way of the Zephyr in the last few years but I cannot find it. I have the other details from the authenticity manual with respect to material, color, etc. I'm inquiring for a friend of mine who does not have anything to go by. I have a 40 sedan as well with carpet but my car is in storage and I can't get to it to measure.
  2. In case anyone is interested, I did manage to complete my oil pan cleanout project. It took me longer than I thought but part of that time was trial and error in figuring out what I was doing. If I ever do it again it won't take me nearly as long. Anyway, it's all back together and I'm waiting for the spring to get the car out on the road again and have another season of driving enjoyment.
  3. Thank you, I will try these tips out as well!
  4. Thanks guys, I have some more work to do! I waited until the end of the driving season up here in Michigan to do the work and I'm glad I did because it might take me a little longer than I thought. Luckily I won't be doing it on a 95 degree day, more like in a 55 degree heated garage. I did remember to drain the oil too! LOL!
  5. For the first time since I've owned my 40 sedan, I'm attempting to lower the oil pan and clean out the sludge. I figured it would be a fairly straightforward job and for the most part it is..all bolts out, including that pesky one on top of the starter. A few bangs and prys here and there and it broke lose and that's where it stopped as I can't get it down and out. Do I need to take off the exhaust cross member that goes under the pan? Thank you for your help in advance.
  6. I will be 38 next month. I've been in the LZOC since 1999 when I bought a fairly orginal 40 sedan from a friend of mine's grandfather. I still have the car and work on it whenever I get the chance. I've tried to attend a few of the GOF's whenever I can and I've met most of the guys that have been with the LZOC for a long time. They have been very kind to me and have offered all kinds of knowledge when I've asked for help. As for the future of LZOC, I would love to be a part of it but my biggest problem is that the cars are just so expensive these days. I would love to have another Zephyr or two but the costs of a good example are beyond my reach. Nevertheless, my sedan will keep me busy for years to come. I hope the LZOC can generate a new generation of Zephyr lovers that want to honor the tradition of these great cars.
  7. If you are interested in the fenders, feel free to make an offer. I would entertain any reasonable ones that come my way.
  8. One More. If you want to see any angle, please let me know. E-mail me at materal73@gmail.com.
  9. There was a 38 sedan for sale on Ebay through a classified ad for $8,900 this past week or so. It was in Brunswick, OH. I went over to look at it if anyone is interested in some perspective on it. I did not meet the seller in person, maybe they are on this forum or have posted something about it.
  10. Or if someone is interested, I can send pics and you can make an offer.....
  11. In searching for some advice on my ongoing fuel pump issues, I ran across this thread. What is involved in replacing the fuel pump pushrod? Does it require removing the intake manifold?
