The following info is from a '36 Lincoln Zephyr owner's manual.

Spark plugs, althought not specified, were originally Champion H10. Modern eqivalents are the H10C, NKG-B6L, and Autolite 216.

Firing order is as follows: 1-4-9-8-5-2-11-10-3-6-7-12. The even numbers are on the passenger side ( front to back) and the odd on the driver's side.

Oil capacity was 6 quarts unless some one has change the oil pan which could then be 5 quarts. The oil level indicator near the carb will tell you when it "full".

"oil capacity of limps speed" Not quite sure what you mean here? Oil pressue at speed was approximately 30 psi after the engine was warm.

Battery. The original was a 17 plate 6 volt with a capacity of 96 amp-hours. A modern 6 volt group 2 battery will be more than adequate.

Tire pressue. The original 7:00 x 16 tires had a recommended tire pressure of 28 lbs. Pressure for modern tires will vary according to type of construction etc. If you use radial type tires the recommended pressure is usually higher.

Hope this helps.
