Having fun with My t56 Mark VIII.
This is by no means a step by step guide but a quick overview of what i did if you have any questions feel free to ask!
1.T56 from 03 cobra
2.spec stage 1 clutch
3.Stock Mustang GT flywheel (dont get a cobra they are 8 Bolts the gt is a 6 bolt like marks)
4. Mustang clutch pedal cut off and welded to mark 8 brake assembly (pic's in here
5.Fab your own shifter like blender head did in this thread mine is the same but i have no pics. http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/showthread.php?t=42658
6. also yo have to move your computer because it is right wear the clutch needs to go. for this you have a couple options you can do what i did and just cut out the heat and AC tube and duct tap the Comp up there you can still put the cover back on and it will look fine but you have no air form the 2 air duct you cut off. the plus of this is it takes no extentions of the wires and took me about 20 mins but it is not as clean of an install as blenderhead who rewired it all under the dash but that takes longer it really your call both menthods work fine.
you could also go with a hydrolic clutch but i have never installed one of those so you would have to ask blender about that.
7 u will need a custom driveshaft i recoment dennysdriveshaft.com they are a little pricy but have great service and made me a perfect driveshaft.
Some other usful links for your swap that i used this might take a couple hours to read all of it but it will really help when you start.

you might want to consider a termec 6060 if you have the cash no shifter probelm and strong but a little pricyer and i think you have to go with a hydrolic clutch with this trans.
my car all done sry no in car driving vids http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1ITyo5ck3U
Well good luck the swap will be well worth it in the end if you have any more questions now or along the away feel free to ask.
My Lincoln Mark VIII with sequential tail lights
Update: Because I have been asked so many questions about it, there is a
complete write up here:
Added sequential tail lights to the Mark VIII last night. Back in the day,
I had a 67 Tbird and I had two friends with 69 Tbirds and I have always
missed those sequential lights. In my opinion is is the way the Mark VIII
should have come from the factory. It really suits the car.
The History of Lincoln
Henry Leland, a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors,
and his son, Wilfred Leland, formed the Lincoln Motor Company in August,
1917. Leland named the new company after Abraham Lincoln, his hero and for
whom he cast a vote in 1864. Lincoln's first source of revenue came from
assembling Liberty aircraft engines, using cylinders supplied by Ford Motor
Company, to fulfill World War I government contracts.
After the war, the Lincoln factories were retooled to manufacture luxury
automobiles. Ford Motor Company purchased the Lincoln Motor Company in
1922, but Lincoln continued to operate as a somewhat separate company from
Ford through early 1940. On April 30, 1940 the Lincoln Motor Company became
the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company
At the direction of Henry's son Edsel, in 1923 several body styles were
introduced, that included two- and three-window, four-door sedans and a
phaeton that accommodated four passengers. They also offered a
two-passenger roadster and a seven-passenger touring sedan and limousine,
which was sold for $5,200. A sedan, limo, cabriolet and town car were also
offered by coachbuilders Fleetwood, Derham and Dietrich, and a second
cabriolet was offered by coachbuilder Brunn.
As the brand grew it developed several memorable vehicles, the Zephyr, the
Continental Mark II, the Lincoln Continental and recently the ubiquitous

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!!!

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

The Mustang Cobra Has A Mark VIII Engine
Contrary to popular myth, the Lincoln Mark VIII does not have a Cobra
engine in it. In fact, it's the other way around. The Mark VIII got the
4.6L DOHC aluminum V-8 in 1993. The Cobra didn't get it until 1996.
Therefore the Cobra actually has a version of the Mark VIII's engine.
Abes Lincoln - 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 Hot Rod Luxury
In honor of President Lincoln's birthday, February 12th, I thought I'd post
this video of his namesake, the Lincoln Mark VIII. When Henry Leland
started Lincoln Motor Company in 1917, he named it after our famous
President. This Lincoln has the monochromatic trim all the way around, an
elegant leather interior, and a 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 under the hood. These
cars really do offer luxury and performance in one complete package.
Perhaps it would be the choice of our beloved President, if he were still
alive today. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
