The problem is the circuit breakers, that are part of the headlight switch, are either overloaded or defective. Replace the headlight switch and your flashing lights will be a thing of the past.

Have fun

oMike: The early cars with the single pump and solenoids can be interesting to get operting properly. You have air in the lines and cylinders that is actually pushing the deck lid down while the top is trying to move. Make something to hold the deck lid in the open position. Disconnect the cylinders...

R&R: EDPM is ethylene-propylene-diene-methylene. Know you know why an abreviation is used! One commercial use is rubber roof membrane which should be readily available. The typical thickness have enough compliance to seal the irregularities in the choke housing. The screw removal should be fairl...

R&R: These water heated choke housings can be frustrating. I would remove the unit from the carb and disassemble. This is done by removing the center screw, with the strange head design, and separating the two halves of the housing. Replace the gasket with a gasket made of EDPM rubber material. ...

Oops... My reference to rare was pertaining to slba sides that were equiped with 460's. They ran only for 2 years while the MEL ran from many starting in the late 50's. The early 460's are desirable so finding a decent donor car for all the swapping hardware is difficult. Sorry for the confusion. Jo...

drcliff: I have looked closely at the 460 factory installed in a 68. The engine is very close to the frame rails which Lincoln added chamfers to clear the exhaust manifolds. The clearance is still very tight with the fragile early exhaust manifolds. Getting to the bolts on these manifolds is tight. ...

Chris: It maybe tempting to install a 460 but there are many items that need to be adapted and some rare parts located. The 460 needs modified frame rails to clear the exhaust manifolds and you need the early manifolds to clear the frame steering gear etc. Check out the power steering pump and see w...

The installation of pistons in a 430/462 is not as easy as engines with the cylinders perpendicular to the top of the block. I had the same problem on a 430 with a .030" overbore. The ring compressor would not work but since the rings enter the bore at an angle. You can start the rings by hand and v...

The gas gauge can be fairly easily removed with the tank in the car. If you can support the body and let the axle move down it provides more working space to wiggle the it out. You will be surprised at the amount of room there is with the axle dropped a little bit. Check the level of the fuel so the...

Stu: If you won first in your class, 61-63 Sedans, you would then be competing with all the other slab side sedans for a Lincoln trophy, which is the large champagne bucket. If you did not win this there are two reasons. One, there was another car with higher points. Two, no car had the minimum poin...

Rick: The 460 was installed in later Lincolns but there are many differences. The frame rails have an extra chamfer to clear the stock exhaust manifolds and even this is fairly tight. Do not forget the "simple" things like the power steering. Do you have a crank mounted pump with the 460? The radiat...

I believe the rear bumper also has one bolt per side that is accessed from under the car. These are near the back end of the leaf springs. These are long bolts thread into the bumper bracket.

Ethan: The exhaust manifold can be removed with the engine in the car and the cylinder head in place. The trick is to raise the engine enough to put a 1" shim between the motor mounts and the frame. Remove the fan and shroud first. You can jack on the oil pan, with a large block of wood to spread ou...

66 Coupe: I will not cut a dash to install a modern radio so the alternatives are limited to under the dash, in the glovebox or a hidden radio with a wired remote.

61Cont:
This job should take an experienced mechanic, with a lift, 4-6 hours. It is fairly easy once the oil pan is removed with the trick being removing and installing the upper rear main seal. There are special tools available to help remove a stubborn upper seal.
