1994 Lincoln Mark VIII - Aftermarket Airstruts Fastbag - RezMax Rekordz Ryde
I know about the AUDIO DELAY...sorry. I didn't check the audio sync first before exporting and uploading from Adobe Premiere. I have no idea why it happened but too busy to fix it. These air struts were bought used from Craigslist for $200. I paid $200 for welding both struts. Cut the stock air manifold from the stock struts to act as a strut adapter plate. The struts are from Airbagit.com and were for a 2001 acura. I had to modify them a lot to make them work on my 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII. Originally I modified the stock Air Struts to handle 1/2" Air hoses. The were very slow and were dry rotted. It was time for a replacement so I decided to upgrade to bags meant for fast inflation.

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 Fast Bag Setup
"SET-UP: 6 valves - 4 SMCs for fill and two small Snap Tite (3/32" orifice) valves for dump. The front and rear were set up to raise for one second each. The rear goes way too high if not slowed down. The front goes too high as well. The car was also timed to dump for six seconds. The second portion of this video shows the whole car raising off a one-second pulse. The rear still was a bit fast and goes a little high. I installed a ball vavlve on each bag to slow it down. Dump was set for three seconds." Found this somewhere, this isn't my car!





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.

An example of a normal day with a fastbag conversion system. I raise the car with the alarm button, drive off and return. As I arrive, I drop the car back down to the ground. I then get out and do it all over again from my transmitter while I grab a closer angle.





Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a 1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the '97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n' Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek, beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII. The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient 225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a completely new car from the ground up.





Lincoln Zephyr V12
This is a video of a Lincoln Zephyr V12 engine break in. This engine will be installed in a 1939 Zephyr 4 door sedan. The last time the car saw day light was in 1970 and has been in storage ever since. After this video was shot more detail to the engine was done including the Exhaust system coated to deflect the heat and also to have it as per the original appearance from the factory.
