This is off topic for Model T. But, u guys really are at the top of the hobby. I am a new owner of a 1941 Lincoln Continental. Fuel gauge reads 0. I can't find a sensor or a gauge or many other parts for this vehicle. Not many of these body styles were made. But, there were many V12s made and isn't a Ford a Ford.

Yes No Maybe! :-) You might also try asking on Fordbarn in the early V8 section.

I would suspect that the sending unit is the same as a Ford, except that the float rod may be a different length.
Have you done any trouble shooting on the gauge? The sending unit? The wiring?

Never take for granted any Lincoln part is the same as a Ford. Lincolns of all years are some of the most challenging Ford products to restore.

The most active place on the web for V-12's is this subsection on the AACA forum:

Good luck!

Be careful. I own a '41 Ford and I've been advised that the aftermarket rheostat type senders will not work with the original Ford gauges. They fit great but won't work right.

Apparently Model T parts are easier to come by.

A while back the TV old car show "Chasing Classic Cars" that's features Wayne Carina(may not be correct spelling for his last name), had a segment with a 40's Lincoln Continental on it.
The owner had a stash of parts he had with the car. I cant remember if he bought what he had or not.
You might contact him about locating parts for your car.
The guy has a lot of contacts.

I looked into this more. The sender should be the same one as used on Fords thru 1953. It is a king seeley bimetallic design with a heating element and contact points. If you have your original one, it can be rebuilt in some instances.
