Columbia 2 speed vacuum lines, how are they routed?


Recommended Posts

I have a 40 Lincoln zephyr that has been apart for a long time. Does anyone have a car they can take pictures of to show the original routing and brackets holding the vacuum lines? Also wondering if anyone has advice on installing and the best place to get wing window rubber. Also need a glove box. Will 40 Ford parts fit? Getting close to a drive around the block! Thank you!

If you start from your vacuum canister on the rear end you should be able to follow them forward down the passenger rear axle support to the drivers frame rail. You will run into a vacuum valve, and then it should run to your intake. I am interested in any mounts and where they are.

Your car and color are awesome- what a beauty.  Do you know Al in Cinci, restoring Mickey Rooney's 1940 cabr? Same great color, same year, you guys may want to be comparing notes. My car will never be a points car but I am making progress and fortunate that most of the car was complete and orig.  Orig owner parked it in 1950, widow left it in garage till we towed in home in 1971, so pretty unmolested.  Columbia parts were in good condition, so I just cleaned up the brackets and tubing and reinstalled the original parts, just replacing the old red rubber with new hose.  Clamps on the radius rod are round on bottom and trapezoid on top to contain both tubes.  Hope these pics help, hard to get good picks with so many things in the way.  Let me know if you need more detail on a focused area you may need a better pic of, Paul1211047352_20191210_171201(2).jpg.86514fa9f6e200916f1f0862eaa553e9.jpg524863346_20220707_201128(2).jpg.6a1dad0b8ee0f8435127a5f5235ac850.jpg1437163720_20220707_201022(2).jpg.c71a3298084ddbb88305959b92f940ec.jpg1803121651_20220707_201357(2).jpg.e97452db0b4ee8712f1cd9322e42e11d.jpg

Glove boxes: you can do a search, under this V12 Lincolns thread, for glove boxes; I think I have still seen Ron (not Dennis) Carpenter adds within the last year or two, on the West Coast, made nice glove boxes if still doing them.

Want to thank everyone for their advice and great pictures!  I think I can finish the vacuum lines now. I got a glove box from Chris, it looks great. Chris said the company that has the mold for the vent window rubber is out of business. I asked another company about making new ones and they said they needed very nice originals for the mold and mine are in bad shape. Anyone have any laying around? Even used good condition? Thank you again!
