41 56c convertible top lowering

Recommended Posts

This may not apply at all but it was possible on my ‘58 continental with a lot of muscle and care not to bend the frame irons. Brake fluid has to be forced back out of the 2 top cylinders. Disconnecting them, of course, makes it a lot easier.

Yes, you can put it down without disconnecting anything. It might take some muscle, but since the system works on vacuum rather than hydraulic pressure, you're not moving fluid or forcing it through a check valve or pump. It should move reasonably easily. But as Valk says, disconnecting the cylinders isn't a bad idea, especially if the cylinders might be frozen or seized.
