    Default My 1983 Lincoln Mark VI

    The car isn't registered in my name yet but it's almost ready to pass inspection!

    Work completed:

    new gas tank and straps
    oil-change (synthetic 5W30)
    new rear wheel cylinders
    new rear brake pads
    one rim cleaned and re-installed due to leak

    Work still required:

    new e-brake cable
    new front shocks
    hole inside of the rear bumper-mount needs to be patched

    I purchased a set of front shocks today. Also made an appointment for next Tuesday with the welding shop I deal with

    Yes, it has a 302 2bbl All the engine's top-end gaskets were replaced last summer, so that's one less thing to worry about. The rear end is a K-code (3.55 ratio) so acceleration is good. The dual-exhaust system is getting worn out but it will pass inspection this year.

    Lightbulb welding completed

    The inner block of the rear bumper needed a patch job. A new plate was welding in place yesterday. Now all the car needs to pass mvi is front struts (I have them) and an e-brake cable.

    Thumbs up more new parts

    This week I picked up a t-stat and housing (gaskets included) because the age of the current parts is questionable...Next week I'm picking up the upper and lower rad hoses. The mvi is scheduled for Tuesday.

    Yes, the car has duals. I'm going to have some exhaust work done in 2012 because the system is showing it's age now.

    Thumbs up new inspection sticker

    The shop completed the mvi today...finally! Yesterday, one of their mechanics quit, which put them further behind schedule. Now I just have to get the car appraised and registered in my name.
