  1. Mine leaks in the oil pan, the crack is on the inside not the outside. I will be pulling the engine this winter and getting it fixed properly. until then I will keep my eyes open for a good V12 block. Good time to have my cam reground since it will be all apart.
  2. I found a Snap on analyzer for 6 and 12 volt for 10 bucks out at the local swap meet. it doesnt do V12s but it will do each side. Someone stole me old one that would do V12s.
  3. A 48 Lincoln Conv. Coupe sold two years ago for 110,000 There were 314 made from what I found out from Ford. Much rarer than a continential Conv. well worth what they are asking for it.
  4. Only reason I am thinking of putting a plug in it is the crack is only 2" long at the bottom and just 1/2"high so its not to bad, just bad enough to leak water in my oil after sitting for a day or two.
  5. Glad to see the site back up. Thanks CBoz but once this is back together I want it a permanet fix. I am thinking about tapping the water jacket and putting a long brass plug in there maybe an 1 1/2" long so its past the crack and insure no more water will leak. I just need to know if the water jackets are the same diameter from the bottom up so the threads will hold at least past the crack. I will find out next week if I dont hear from anyone here.
  6. I dropped the oil pan and found the crack. its right where the center water jacket plug is, it was welded up there when I had the block machined and apparently not welded up good enough, water is leaking from both sides of the weld. Time to pull it and get it done right which means disassembling the whole engine for a little crack. I Love this car but sure wish they had Packard build thier engines, never have any problems with my Packards.
  7. They sell it for tractor parts also. if you cant find one let me know and I will call my friend and get you a price on one and a part# so you could order it there in the bay.
  8. I use one for a ford police car, it has a button on the back side so if it ever stops working you can push the button and make it work. I got it at the local carquest parts store, I have it on my power top pump too.
  9. Thanks for the help guys. I have had both heads off and the intake and no sign of water anywhere. it does seem to hold water for a day or two then it all ends up in the oil pan. I will have to pull the pan and check those plugs. Thanks Peecher I forgot all about those. The engine has had the coolant flushed every year since it was rebuilt and oil changes every 1000 miles. it has been sitting in the garage for the last year without running except for once every other month while I am working on my 69 Dodge Daytona. Guess its a jelous car. I will pull the pan in the next few weeks and let you guys know what I find. I hope its as simple as a core plug. If it is I think I might tap them and put screw in type plugs in there.
  10. Damn! today I drained the oil and nothing but water, I think I have a cracked block too. I think its time to make a hot rod Lincoln with that new 429 I have sitting on a stand. At least keep it all ford products.
  11. Hi all and hope your having a good day. I have been having one problem after the other with my Lincoln. Started 2 months ago with a blown head gasket then the coil went out along with the condensers, got all that fixed and the belt broke and while putting it back together and tightening up the slingshot for the Alternator the front of the edelbrock 2x2 intake manifold broke off about 2" back. Glad I kept a single 2bbl intake. I have a machinest friend cutting it back and CNCing a whole new front end and tigging it back together. Sure hope to not have any more problems this month.
  12. Hi Dag. I have had mine put together for about 8 years now and at idle it is painfully slow(about 90 seconds to get up) I keep the engine running at a high idle and it cuts the time in half.
  13. Thanks for the site and info peecher. If I cant get this one fixed I will be buying a new one, if not the 4bbl I will go with the 3x2, seems to work real good on my 70 Challenger 440. Did you notice or check to see if the vacuum had changed at all with the 4bbl?
  14. If you dont mind me asking. Where did you get the intake and how much was it? I just cracked the front of my edelbrock 2x2 intake when I tightened up the sling shot that hold the alternator. It can be fixed but might just go with a 4bbl. If you have one handy try the carter AVS 600cfm it should be a better performer than the Autolite.
  15. I used a clutch and pressure plate from a 52 mercury and it fit perfect and seems a little smoother on slow starts, less chatter.
