Lincoln Forum MPC Offer <-- To order your MPC or shop manuals, click here

I'm sure that everybody knows what an MPC is (Master Parts Catalog), but most don't have one. For those who don't, it is a massive cross-reference catalog that shows part numbers, exploded-diagrams of assemblies, and other information. It's how you can determine across which years a certain part is used.

I have the following MPCs and want to make them available to those who support the forum.

The MPCs available are:
  • 1956 to 1959 Lincolns (not Mark II)
  • 1960 to 1964 Lincoln Mercury
  • 1965 to 1972 Lincoln & Mercury
  • 1973 to 1979 Lincoln & Mercury
  • 1980 to 1989 Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury
For $20, you get all the MPCs.

In addition, the following shop manuals are also available:
  • 1961 Lincoln
  • 1964 Lincoln
  • 1965 Lincoln
  • 1966 Lincoln
  • 1967 Lincoln
  • 1969 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1970 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1971 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1973 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1974 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1977 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1979 All Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Vehicles
  • 1991 Town Car Electrical & Vacuum Manual
  • 1993 Town Car Electrical & Vacuum Manual
  • 1994 Town Car Electrical & Vacuum Manual
Manuals are $20 each.

I have access to a scanner/copier at work and can easily create PDFs of a printed MPC if it is already separated into loose-leaf pages and can go into a sheet feeder. I will not do any book-flip scanning as it takes WAY too long.

If anyone has a document they wish to donate to the forum, send it to me and I will add it to the list of available documents.

Here's the offer: Donate $20 to the forum and get access to the MPC or Shop Manual to use forever.

Follow the link here, then select the amount and click through: Lincoln Forum MPC Offer

Be sure to specify a proper mailing address and any important contact information.

Your donation will be used to cover the costs of operating this forum and obtaining the MPCs. If you send a donation, post in this thread so I don't miss it. Sometimes paypal emails are spammed and lost and I don't check the account if I don't have to.

If anyone has any questions on how to use the MPC, please ask.

I might be able to help with the '60-'64 MPC group 1,000-15,000. I have two original copies, one is in a binder but has the first twelve and last thirty pages missing. The other one is beginning to fall apart. It may take some time, but I might be able to make copies of the missing pages and then separate the pages of one, leaving one copy for myself and another one that I could donate to the Forum. Let me know if you want me to get started on the project

Someone is sending me the 60-64 set on CD so I only need to purchase the 80-89 set. So far, I only have two takers, though. Not enough.

I got your order, Mike. I just ordered the 1980-89 version on CD since you are the first to request it, but my source for the 1960-64 version has not come through yet. I can't find any on ebay to purchase at this time either.

So I request a little patience from those who ordered the 60-64 version (the most popular one so far). I will post again when I find out when I expect to receive it.

Thanks for your donations. They will help the forum continue to provide service.

Does everyone know how to USE the manuals? It is not obvious and there is a TON of information inside each MPC.

I have just ordered a CD for the 1960-64 Lincolns. I figure it will arrive in a few days.
I will send out the MPCs on back order next week and everyone should have them by about Feb 16.
