1966 1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible Hydraulic Check Valve NEW
MADE IN AMERICA!
Up for sale is a hydraulic check valve for the convertible top system of a 1966 or 1967 Lincoln convertible. The check valve is attached to the hydraulic lines adjacent to the top pump and the deck lid pump. You can use this either hydraulic motor..
ABOUT THE CHECK VALVE- The hydraulic check valve acts to prevent movement of hydraulic fluid through the lines when the pump is not energized. Common symptoms of check valve failure include leaking hydraulic fluid from the check valve body and failure of either the top or the deck lid to stay in an upright position once the pump has been turned off. For example, if you put the top straight up in the air and turn off the pump, it should not slowly sink back onto the windshield header or completely into the trunk. In the case of the deck lid, it may slowly sink back into the trunk if put in the vertical position. If the deck lid falls back toward the trunk with the flipper lid extended, this MAY result in the system being out of sync, causing mal-function.
(note that the top, when left in the vertical position, will NORMALLY settle down several feet toward the trunk before stopping totally. This is normal.)
This hydraulic check valve kit is not available from any other vendor. This has been custom manufactured for Brewer Classic Lincoln by hydraulic specialists who do work for Caterpillar and Cummins.
