    That better hill performance makes the HO conversion tempting. What effect did it have on your fuel economy?

    A Mk VIII is a far cry from the 70s Marks and 80s Tudors. The design just doesn't seem very Lincoln-like, unlike the aero Town Car. But I guess the Mk VII was already taking the model in a different...

    Montana has got to be just about the farthest thing from Poland, but entirely appropriate on your wagon. They call it the Big Sky Country. A vast, untamed frontier of endless plains and Rocky...

    I've somehow managed to really screw things up. The driver's mount is probably the bad one, but after I gave up tapping the replacement mount I thought I'd reinstall the old one and see if I could at...

    Well, as expected, removing the mounts has been harder than it should be, but not in the ways I expected.

    First, the 13mm swivel socket has worked like a charm. That, plus an 8 or 10 inch...

    I watched a couple videos on rebuilding differentials last night, and I now know enough to know it's not a job I care to do myself. At least not anytime soon anyway. Looks like there are a good...

    I did, though I always just unbolt the fan from the water pump pulley. I don't believe I've ever separated the clutch from the fan. Will take a look, though.

    Yeah, it's most noticeable when stopped while in gear, but I definitely can pick up on something when it gets above 40 or so, too. Goes away entirely as soon as it shifts into park.

    I somehow managed to pass Washington state emissions without 3 of 4 catalytic converters, working EGR, or a functional PCV valve. But that was tailpipe only, no visual inspection. Doubt I'd fare as...

    Not to hijack the thread, but I'm curious about the inverse to this question. How far can you go with stock LoPo cam and ECU? Suppose the goal was to build power in low to mid RPMs, or to add some...

    Was that a '90-'91 Town Car liner, or from a Vic or Grand Marquis? I can imagine a 90s Box would swap over fine, but whether the Aero TC liner works in a Box is the question. Or, I suppose, whether...

    Fender Liners

    I have half a mind to go pull a '90 driver's inner fender from the yard tomorrow, but I don't really understand how they're held in place. Specifically, how are the liners secured to the fender...
