  1. Thank you for the information. I have a used one that I just purchased and I'll separate it from the column and have it rebuilt than I can replace the one in the car with no down time. George.
  2. There is a listing in the LZOC magazine by a Jim Manz but it lists Zephyr '37 to '40. You might send him an email. His email is manzjim@gmail.com Good luck. George
  3. Hello everyone, I have a '48 Continental Coupe and I would like to remove the steering box to have it rebuilt. My question is does the shaft separate from the box or does the shaft come out with the column minus the steering wheel? I haven't been able to locate removal instructions. Thanks in advance for any help given George
  4. I sent my coil to Skip's 3 years ago. I had no problem with shipping either way and have not had any issues with the coil. The coil was rebuilt by another vendor twice that stated he could rebuilt it and I had problems with it both times within one year of him rebuilding it. You may save a little money on the rebuild or shipping but if it's not done correctly you wasted more time and money. Good luck George.
  5. I have used Rhode Island Wiring in the past and had no issues with them. They're helpful and have quality harness's. Good luck George.
  6. I was thinking about the engine mounts. I replaced them maybe 15 years ago with rebuilt ones from Richard Hommel. I wasn't sure of the quality of them at the time. I'll check mine out if it ever stops raining here in the northeast. Thank you for the reply, George.
  7. Hi guys. What is the symptoms of a faulty balancer? I have an engine vibration on deceleration but no engine misfire and plenty of power. Thank you for any suggestions, George
  8. Hi Dennis I hope these pictures help. George
  9. I'll remove the fender skirt from my 48 Continental tomorrow, take a picture and try to attach it tomorrow night but it will be around 10pm. For the gravel guards, I snipped off the tips because they also didn't line up and used 3M yellow super weather strip and gasket adhesive. They haven't pulled away after 2 1/2 years. George
  10. I've used ATF in my pump for several years now. In the cold weather they work a bit slow but I don't have to worry about paint problems if they leak.
  11. Hi Mike I bought a trunk carpet kit from them for my '48 Continental Coupe around 8/2015. She told me that her husband had retired but that she was still able to supply a kit that I could purchase. The phone number I have for her is 336-492-2286. Good luck George.
  12. Thank you Ken that makes perfect sense . I forgot they found that the engine had solid lifters. George.
  13. Hello I was just wondering what the reason was for blocking of the metering valve? What would someone experience if the valve remained in place? Thanks George.
  14. Years ago the LZOC had a meet in Lincoln New Hampshire. Since it was only hours away from home my late wife (Joanne) and I decided to go with my not yet restored '48 Lincoln Continental. Well it was more like my idea and she came along. We no sooner get on Rte 93 heading north and it started to rain, not a heavy rain just a steady one. Of course this was only the second time I had the car out in the rain and it leaked from the windshield, cowl vent and wiper towers. We ended up finding a Walmart or Target and bought towels to cover our legs and soak up the floor. We made it to Lincoln had a great time and also laughed about it. I guess with the right person you can enjoy any situation. George.
  15. Thanks for the replies. That was the way I thought it went. I just wanted to be sure I don't want to scratch the paint installing it incorrectly and then having to take it apart. I've owned the car for 34 years, registered and driven all of them except the last two. I want to get it back together and drive it before I have to put it away. Thanks again and I'll post more pictures as more complete it gets. George,
