1996 Lincoln Mark VIII Seafoam Treatment
I seafoamed my 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII today. I haven't done it in a while and it shows. There was a lot of smoke this time. The white '97 Mark VIII LSC next to it is much cleaner. The last time I seafoamed it, there was very little smoke. According to the descriptions on the can, Seafoam is supposed to break up carbon deposits and clean the induction system, valves, tops of pistons, etc. It is also supposed to get rid of the rotten egg smell associated with clogged catalytic converters. Fortunately, my cats are still in pretty good shape. I don't know if Seafoam really works, but I know my engine runs smoother after a treatment. And it sure is fun to watch! Note: Eventually, I'm going to make a more detailed step-by-step video with someone else holding the camera. This was obviously done very quickly. Next time, I plan to use 3 bottles. One for the crankcase, one for the intake, and one for the gas tank. Now, you've got to remember to change your oil IMMEDIATELY after seafoaming your crankcase. Or else the stuff will destroy your seals and gaskets. Running it through the oil is like high performance Motor Flush. It cleans the crap outta your engine block.





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.

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.

1993 Lincoln Mark VIII fast bags bagged
stock bags, drilled and tapped with 1/2" fittings. 1/2" valves with fill and dump speed controls, still need to adjust the back, it moves too fast for my taste. There is one (for now) Viair 380 compressor, a 5 gallon tank against the back of the trunk and a 3 gallon tank in the spare tire area. I put 'fast bags' in the title as it moves a lot quicker than the factory system. the clicking is me hitting the buttons on the remote. .. I've since sold the car, after I put it on tbird springs
