Lincoln Mark VIII Test Drive
I should have tightened the camera to the tripod better as its rattling and
very annoying. Somewhere from the camera, editing to youtube the 1080p
widescreen was ruined so ill redo asap.
This is a 93 lincoln mark 8 with 4.6 dohc, stock Exhaust. I opened up the intake tube and
mcguivered a cold air intake. It still has snow tires on so there a little
noisy, they are 215 60r16s so first gear only goes to 95kph; with 225's it
goes to 102kmh. All of the accelerations are a roll into the full
acceleration, i dont want to wear the winters too much.
I did the hid conversion as you can see in the first 15 seconds of the
movie, they are morimoto mini h1's. I had to make a thermoforming machine
to create the clear lenses as the originals were fluted.
It has coil over suspension instead of the air ride, no big difference
really. Im going to redo the suspension in summer so im not being careful
in the backroads. It currently has 215000km on the body but only 50,000km
on engine and transmission.
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks for bearing with me and the lack
of uploading lately. I have a ton of videos to upload including vintage,
exotics, new models, and some unique things to come. I have recently moved
into a new house for my 4th year pharmacy school rotations and have been
packing, unpacking, and dealing with all of this for a while. Now I'm
finally able to slowly start getting back into the groove of things. I
will also begin working on a new update video fairly soon to let you all
know what has been happening lately. Thanks a bunch and enjoy the future
vids to come!!!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 1995 Lincoln Mark VIII. I now feature BOTH models and versions
of the Mark VIII. This 1995 and the 1998 refreshed body style LSC model. I
reference the LSC in this video also. If you would like to check out the
video on the LSC (although it's not a mint condition version) use this
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

Lincoln Mark VIII Doesn't Have Struts!!!
Hello all! I finally got hold of a Ford service manual and scanned a page
from that manual that clearly states that the Lincoln Mark VIII does not
have McPherson Struts in the front suspension. According to Ford Motor
Company, the folks who designed and engineered the car, the Mark VIII has
an "Air Spring & Shock Assembly" up front. I am completely baffled at the
persistence with which people use the term "strut" to incorrectly describe
the Mark VIII's front air shocks. There are many different types of
suspension designs. In my experience during my short-lived career as a
mechanic, I worked on just about every type of suspension known to man.
Everything from the simplest straight axle with transverse leaf spring to
struts, to control arms, to DeDion axles, to complicated multilink setups.
Each design is different. They may share components, but the overall design
varies. In the case of struts vs. control arms, there are several distinct
differences between the types. In a strut design, there is no upper control
arm. The strut is bolted directly to the spindle and acts as a damper,
steering kingpin, and upper suspension locating link. Because the strut is
bolted to the spindle, it turns with the steering, requiring a bearing cap
on top of the spring so it doesn't scrape against the strut tower. In a
UCA/LCA design, there is an upper control arm and the shock bolts to either
the upper or lower control arm. In this design, the shock acts only as a
damper, nothing else. There is a major difference between strut and control
arm suspension designs. The Mark VIII does not have a strut-type suspension
by any stretch of the imagination. That fact is clearly visible when the
Mark's suspension is compared to more plebian strut designs. There's
absolutely no ambiguity or vagueness. The differences are clearly visible
to anyone with eyes. It can be (and has been) easily proven that Mark
VIII's don't have McPherson struts, yet people still call them struts. It
makes absolutely no sense at all. The two types of suspensions are so
distinctly different, I don't understand why it's even an issue. And what's
interesting to me is that any time a thread on this site starts talking
about the differences between struts and control arms, when I clearly
demonstrate the differences and prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the
Mark VIII doesn't have struts, all activity on the thread just stops. I
think the pro-strut folks are in denial. Oh well. They just can't admit
that they're wrong I guess.
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC Start Up & Rev With Exhaust View - 103K
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
This has a Intech 4.6L 32 Valve DOHC V8 making 290 HP while paired to a 4
Speed Auto. It's essentially a Cobra V8 & also the same engine from my 2002
Continental only in my car it's detuned & in FWD.
This model began in 1993 until the Final year made in 1998. The Mark is
known to be the first Production Vehicle to offer HID ( High Intensity
Discharge ) Headlamps.
The Marks biggest issue was with the 4 wheel Air Ride suspension which was
prone to early failure & it is a costly repair. Many owners resorted to
Coil Spring conversion but it really killed the Marks Smooth ride.
