Re: Nic Sanford’s 77 Project II

Ha! Thank you, Rick. Yeah the 61 is a longer project, of course. Wish I could be cruising it this summer but as you know parts don’t come cheap. The 77 was my original dream ride and I just had to be cruising something my wallet could allow, didn’t want to wait another summer. I think I might have a...

Nic Sanford’s 77 Project II

You never really get over letting go of a classic Lincoln. It’s not in near the shape of my white 77 from years back, but so far I’m happy with it. Got her fired up in about a minute after getting a new battery in, now the fun begins...

Re: Nic Sanford's 61 Project

Finally got it! Once the harness clamps came off it was easy. Fitting my hand behind the window tracks, not so much...

Re: Nic Sanford's 61 Project

Thanks man! I got a little bit further but am getting held up by window removal. I recall the window having to be rolled down to get it off the track, but don’t have my battery hooked up. Do you know how I can jump the window motor to get it to roll down?

Re: Nic Sanford's 61 Project

Alright guys, I know it’s been a while and much has happened since the last time I posted. Finally got a house and the 61 sitting comfortably in the garage. Now that it’s home I’m finally able to tear in to this build. First thing I’m trying to do is get these doors off and the manual doesn’t have i...

Re: Nic Sanford's 61 Project

Well I'll be a SOB. Finally got these exhaust manifolds off. Well, one of them anyway, but the main bolts on the other side are loose and ready to come out. Ended up taking a chisel to loosen up 2 of the brass bolts, but that did the trick. Now to get a new timing chain set, and clean this thing up,...

Re: 61 Wiring Diagram & Schematics

I believe the wiring diagram is at the back of the shop manual. https://www.thelincolnforum.net/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=28049 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Action There is a diagram, but it isn't quite as detailed as the separate 63 Wiring Diagram & Schematic that I have. If anybody knows of a separat...

61 Wiring Diagram & Schematics

Does anybody know the wiring differences between a 61 and a 63? I have the 63 schematic which is the kind of detail I'm looking for for my 61, and figure if they're similar enough I'll just use the 63 schematic. If anybody knows where I can get the same diagrams for my 61 I'd appreciate it!

Re: Speed Control Delete

Nic, I really wanted to have both. I went so far as to ask Baker's and Lincoln Land if they had ever found a way to move the speed control out of the way to allow for a larger MC. Steve O said they had never done it and he doubted it would work without significant modifications because of the mount...

Re: Speed Control Delete

Thank ya'll. I was considering keeping it but I've heard it can be near impossible to upgrade to a dual master cylinder with it in. It would be nice to have but since I've never used it I'm not sure if it works. Has anybody heard of a dual master upgrade with it in?

Re: Cylinder Head Bolt Size

Thank you Frank, all good info here. Did you have to crank the motor to get the torque converter bolts out, or was there room with the bottom plate taken off? Are you rebuilding the motor for your 65?

Re: 1961 lincoln engine

Just found out my 61 has a 462. Don’t know if it’s been said, but I found my casting numbers on the front drivers side of the block. They are upside down but I got a decent pic...

Speed Control Delete

Has anybody ever done the cruise / speed control delete? I read over the manual and although it seems like a cool piece when they're are working, I've decided I'm going to pull mine. From what I can tell, the speedo cable went from tranny to speed control unit, and from speed control unit to speedom...
