Re: My 62 Lincoln Continental

I missed you guys. Digging into this motor, and need some help I don't know if I can get over at The Lincoln Forums. Since the last time I was here, my car has been sitting for about 6 months due to a divorce. It was quite dirty from sitting in the Oregon rain, but will clean up nice. I've since had...

Re: My 62 Lincoln Continental

This weekend I got around to bleeding my brakes and installing the new brake hoses to find that the wheel cylinders were completely corroded and rusted stuck. I called NAPA, and to my suprise, the rear wheel cylinders were $8.69 each and in stock, and fronts were $25 each and would come in the next ...

Re: My 62 Lincoln Continental

Well it's been a while since my last post so I'm getting around to posting some updates. I spent a few days at my folks place last week and was able to get quite a bit of work done. Here's some video of our progress. I have to admit, although there were some bumps in the road, i'm excited to see how...

Re: My 62 Lincoln Continental

Well, it looks like diagnosing and fixing the carburetor and choke fixed the problem. Just put a brand new battery in her today, and she fires up right away, idles a little high, and sounds great pumping her up a little. Drove her back up to the main parking lot to wait for my dad and the trailer. E...

Re: My 62 Lincoln Continental

I went out this morning to test the choke, and found that it had closed as I expected. When I put the choke housing back on the carb, I apparrently overlooked connecting the lever on the coil inside the choke housing. I hope I'm getting my carb terminology right. ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-...
