    Narragansett has complete wiring harnesses that work very well.

    wood lid in trunk

    The wooden board in the trunk has 4 parts made of 1/2 inch plywood. I will try to post pictures. Overall dimensions are 28 in front to bumper end, 43 1/2 side to side near seat and 45 3/4 at bumper end. The hinged part is 22 1/2 front to back and 31 " across. The board near the seat is 43 1/2" across and 5 1/4" wide. The side boards are wider at the back and curved. Width is 6 1/8' near seat and 7 1/4" at the back, the inside length is 23" and by the fenders it is 19 1/2" then curved over to the inside length. There are metal clips at the side of the center piece to keep it down. There is a strap with snaps to hold the board open. I have more pictures if you need and send me your email address

    Fuel pump push rod question

    I agree it should be straight. Also check that the sleeve it fits into is in good condition.

    Electric Radiator Fan

    The fan on the V12 is low down on the radiator so it is less effective and difficult to shroud better. A push fan higher up on the radiator helps a lot even in a parade!

    Electric Radiator Fan

    I installed a 6 volt push through fan from Fifth Avenue- www.fifthaveinternetgarage.com It is not thermostat controlled but works fine on a toggle switch. I think they have both. Mine is on my 1947 V12 Lincoln.

    Help Wanted - Can't shut off my engine

    I will try to attach photo which should help. This is from 1947 Lincoln and the base is more square but hope the wire colors come out OK.

    Starting problem when 41 Continental warm

    Make sure that the starter is attached squarely and not binding because of the attachment clip to the oil pan bolt pulling it when hot. That will cause your exact problem as it did to me.

    A couple easy reassembly Q's (I hope)

    The horns mount on the hood to the two bolts of the hood mounting bracket toward the center of the car and with the horn flared opening toward the center and downward.. If you still need help I can send a photo.

    help with vin decoding my 46 lincoln

    Interesting because 46's were supposed to have push button exterior door opening devices instead of handles.

    circuit breaker

    Yes you are right that the protection is for wires, we just get in the habit of identifying the wire by the device that they connect to. The predecessor to circuit breakers seems difficult to have a name that is commonly used. Good comment on the power connection that is switched from the ignition switch. Good luck to 47 in connecting the wires.

    circuit breaker

    Thanks Beltfed for your description and the advice to check the one wire. Actually the picture makes the wires look closer than they really are but I will check to be sure. 47Clubcoup- there are only two breakers and they are in the metal box. One protects several wires to instrument panel lights and others. The larger capacity one protects the headlights.
