  1. Our club and hobby has lost a great friend. Tom Overfield passed away Saturday, July 13, 2019 in Kent, Ohio. A friend to anyone in need, mentally and physically, Tom was there to help us with our problem Lincoln’s. I lost a great friend, the club lost a fountain of knowledge. Our thoughts are for Patricia and his family. John Murphy
  2. I have a home you might be interested in. It is a 3 bedroom, 2/2 bath with 3 car attached garage, a 4 car garage and a 60 x40 metal workshop in the back sitting on 12 acres in nw Ocala. I am a LZOC long time member with two early continentals and 2 early Zephyrs in residence. The total car capacity is 11 cars...three in attached garage, 4 car detached garage and a four car metal garage/workshop and office . Surrounding homes are primarily 3 and 12 acre homes. This might fit your needs. Available now. Email if you might be interested John Murphy LCOC, LZOC, AACA since 1975
  3. 40 and 41 lincoln Continentals and Zephyrs used the same radiator 06H 8005C which used a wider radiator filler throat opening. The radiator was changed to a smaller filler throat and part number 26H 8005A. Different radiator caps also. Per Lincoln Chassis part catalog. The Lincoln parts “bible”. A MUST have parts catalog for Lincoln owners. Available from the Lincoln parts vendors.
  4. Billbos, go with the the Optima and make sure you have heavy duty cables-good source are 00 or O welding ground cables. Good source is a local welding supply company in your area. Clean engine ground connections. A doubled Otima battery set up works well also. John
  5. Is there a number stamped at the top of the transmission by the viewport. Should start with the letter H and have 6 numbers. If it's there what is it? That will normally denote the year of manufacture.
  6. John, Buy the Hershey directory when you get there. Look under LINCOLN and you will find the LZOC spaces listed there and the Lincoln parts dealers in attendance. their space numbers and fields they are in. Wear the most comfortable shoes you have. Over 9000 vendors. Bring rain gear possibly for Friday. Enjoy the "circus".
  7. The Lincoln distributor rubber boots are NOT the same as Ford. Check the parts catalogs from the dealers listed under "sources" on the LZOC web page ...you will find what you need. They are good Lincoln parts dealers to deal with the Lincoln products you may need for your car. Good luck.
  8. John...UPDATE. Google comes up with Raymond P Keuhn Door Sills. New address is 302 Legion Place in N. Haledon, New Jersey 07508 1420. Phone is now 973 904 0270. Good luck. John
  9. John, you need to contact "Doorsills" at 81 Graham Avenue, North Haledon, New Jersey 07508, Phone was 973 423 1196. Owner is Raymond Keuhn. Delivery is very slow 6 months or more. One man operation. I don't have a email address handy. I called them direct. This shop produces about every door sill hade for almost any prewar car made. That is why delivery is not quick. Look at his catalog and you will see what I mean. Good luck,
  10. Dan, you need to contact Merv Adkins in California. He is a well know Lincoln parts dealer who might have your missing piece from on of his numerous parts cars. Much easier with the actual lip available than trying to fabricate the whole missing piece.there is just a small metal that juts from the missing lip that the trunk lock catches on to and locks the lid in place. The missing lip looks almost like a square "J" shape and flat on the bottom...the weatherstripping lays in this lip. What's the status of the lid itself? The missing lip has the weatherstripping glued to the rim. Completely surrounds the trunk rim. This is available from Narraganset Reproductions you will find their printable catalog listed in their ad on this LZOC webpage. Go back to the webpage and clic on the "sources" icon and print it out . Look under the "rubber" section for the weather stripping. What is the status of the trunk lid and lock mechanism? Hope not as bad as the body lip. Looks like you are gonna have lot of welding practice in the future. If I can help with some pictures, email me at johnandmarjorae@embarqmail.com John
  11. Of course it helps to add my email address.........is johnandmarjorae@embaqmail.com. Sorry, senility...
  12. Hi. Not able to post pictures. Send me your email address and I will send you photos of the complete lock mechanism. john
  13. Michael, go back to the LZOC web page and click on the catalog of Narragansett Restorations. Print out their catalog and look on page 18 and you will find a number of convertible top items they list for sale including the front top bow and some hardware. God luck
