Re: Smoke from Oil Filler

Theo, to be sure, his engine has 51.000 not 1000 miles on it.

Jeremy, is yours an open or closed crankcase ventilation system?

[quote="Theo"]That's what started it all. Women and chrome. What more can you ask for.

An internal combustion engine & a steering wheel! :mrgreen:

Re: it's not all in a name

Welcome Brian! I'd love to see a few build & finished product photos. Is your (now aptly named) Comet still road legal?

Cheers,
Reijer

Re: Engine Number Location

There's a casting number on the left or right side of the block, under the exhaust manifold. I think it's upside down.

Welcome Mike. I hope your presence will be beneficial to both your business and the forum members for whose cars very little specialists exist.

Re: Nother new guy with a 430 Lincoln

Welcome Ryan! Looking forward to seeing updates of your project. Hope the MEL 430 will prove to be a solid starting point. Don't forget to replace that timing gear & remove the two block thermostats!

How much customizing will you have to do to make the 430 & tranny fit the wagon?

cheers,
Reijer
