Update: 13 years later!
Held onto this one, still a nice original-ish car!
Lowered 3”, ‘49 lincoln hubcaps and very smoking room green and brown...
It's on the firewall near the driver's side on a 51 Lincoln
I thought Ford switched/doubled down on other options due to the Hydramatic factory fire in 53'?
I daily drove the 51' Lincoln in my avatar for most of 2007 in Phoenix, AZ... can't say I'd recommend it with that one.
Any additional Info on that manifold? I'd be interested in one for sure!!!!
Also, if you do find a source, let us know.
A 3 year only one model only window seal... Will be tough to find!
Maybe shares the seal extrusion profile with the split windows, and you can...
a couple buffalo nickels, some hair pins behind the dash and a 1979 longs drug coupon catalog. I'm very particular about putting anything I find...
Coil, bulbs and radio. All else can stay..... That is if your 50+ year old wiring is good. unlikely!
Your issue most likely has to do with the much larger bore of the new master cylinder. When I converted my car (60 continental) to dual master I...
You're right, it is the 2-3, not the 3-4!!!

The new MC is actually larger than stock, which would explain a stiffer pedal when the brakes engage, but I'm puzzled why it is stiffer before...
So I switched the old treadle vac out of my 60 continental in favor of a dual 7" booster and a .75 bore dual master. The treadle vac bore was...
This! They bite the paint
My 51 does the same thing once its over 100, though only after parked & restarted.
Does it start and drive a while before dying? That's probably...
Yes! The only way.
If anyone REALLY needs cylinders, I've got a box of extras somewhere. I also scored some NOS water pumps and a NOS fuel pump, not for sale :D
Hidden valley has the same pricing... $25 for a dipstick... As far as I'm concerned they're about the same. Their prices are what keep the parts...
Haven't heard of them, but they're on the right side of central ave.
I'd suspect you just pull the pump and pushrod, and cover it up.
He drove it Well into the 90's. remains the coolest car he's owned. I can still feel the green vinyl seats burning my 6 year old legs in...
Vinegar or electrolysis, nothing else.
Some supremes or wires, proper door handles and that's a badass car. Who put late model Malibu handles on such a dignified car, pukes.
