Re: 60 Lincoln 430 heads off, burning coolant pics

Stig, Thanks. It does see a lot of high speed driving on the freeway, it routinely cruises at 60-80mph so that makes sense. I'm going to smack the cylinders in solvent which should free the rings up. Long terms plan to build a hotter engine for the car but for now I'd just like to get the poor thing...

Re: New MEL in the stable

Nice buy ya got there! I saw it too and gave it some thought, seemed like a great price.

I'd check to see if it's got the right pistons first though, I figured if I bought it I'd be budgeting for the correct pistons from Wiseco.

C6 into a 1960 Lincoln questions..

Ok, The Turbo Drive FMX in my '60 is not healthy. So I'm thinking that replacing it with a C6 might be a good idea. Bear in mind this car gets used a LOT and sees use in lots of stop and go traffic here in the NYC area. I'm also worrie about finding someone in the North Jersey area who can even rebu...
