  1. My starter button under the dash seems to be shorting out and nothing happens or a short click and then nothing. I disconnected it at the relay and then pressed the button on the relay and it started. How to I get at the push button under on the dash to replace it. Thanks
  2. The key would not turn in my 46. iremoved the switch from the dash but could not disconnect the cable from the switch to the steering wheel lock. I wanted to take the switch to a locksmith or install a new one. How do I do it. Thanks
  3. I want to take the chrome off the front of my 46 Lincoln. It looks to be a very difficult job. The bolts and nuts seem to be behind other parts. Do I need to remove the fenders and a lot of other parts? Any tips? Thanks
  4. :)Sprayed as you said. It took about 3 minutes and the door latches as if new. Thanks for the tip!
  5. My back 46 door will not stay latched. How do I keep it latched? Thanks:confused:
  6. You can get an air pump at most chain stores that you need not plug into your cigerette lighter. It is free standing and does not have a cord. It is about 4 inches by 10 inches by 10 inches. you charge it by plugging it to your home electric outlet. Just remember to charge it once in a while. I carry mine when I go on trips.
  7. :(Thanks Peecher. Unlucky for me, today returning from an estimate at the paint shop the fan went through the radiator.
  8. How do I remove the speedometer on my 46 lincoln sedan? thanks.
  9. Where are you located in Pa? I might come over to look at it.
  10. Probably any of those will work. I put mine in dry but, it may be easier to have some lubercant. Maybe some others can help on this point? You need to take your time and make sure you put the wires in the right place. If I could get an engine harness for 80 bucks I would buy it. What is your source? Thanks.
  11. Are the front and back springs the same in my 46? I have a NOS spring and a spring maker said he would make another using my spring for a pattern. thanks
  12. I will tell you what bad luck is! On Wednesday I was testing my power windows on my 46 sedan. I had removed all of the interior except the back of the front seat. I had rebuilt the two front window lifts and put in new hoses for the back but did not hook them to the lifts. I was testing the electric switches. The front seat back was laying down on the floor in back. When I pressed the switch an unbeliveable amount of oil squirted on the seats from the two rear hoses. I am now testing all the sport remover products I can find. Ihave about 95% of the oil removed. Any good spot removers out ther
  13. I need to put new shocks on the 63. Any recomendations.Thanks
  14. I installed radials on my 63 ford galaxie on Friday. It makes an amazing improvement in handling and ride quality. Far more than you would expect. If you are into driving your car as opposed to correctness go for it.
  15. I am removing the carpets and old jute mats in my 46 lincoln.Any recomendations as to material to put on the floor and in the doors? Thanks for your help.
  16. Water seems to be leaking into the right rear side of my 46 sedan. I put flowable silicon around the rear window but it continues to leak. I do not think the window is the problem because the leak seems to be on the side of the car. Could the water be coming through the drip rail? I considered puting silicon in the rail. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  17. There is one on e-bay now.Go to e-bay motors and search for 1946 Lincoln.
  18. If it is in excellent condition, drive it on the back roads. They did that in 1929. It would be a lot of fun!!
  19. I am installing new window pumps in my car. How are the window slides installed. There is a short slide and a long slide. Which goes to the front of the car? I put Marvel Mystery Oil in the pump. Will that work? What do you recomend if Marvel won't work. Thanks
  20. My radio on my 46 sedan does not work. Do I need to take the entire dash apart to remove the radio? Is this a major job?
  21. Very entertaining. Thanks for your efforts
  22. I have a 46 sedan. Would the speedo cable fit mine? If so how much? Thanks
  23. Certainly It is worth selling. Where is the car located? I am in central Pennsylvania and have a friend who is restoreing a 51 and could use some parts, espically the gas tank. Thanks
  24. I mean what goes in the door. Are they called rams? I replaced one hose that was leaking and may replace all of them while I have the the door panel off. Probably work on them this weekend. Thanks for the responces.
