Re: Water neck Water outlet Thermostat Housing

I resorted to make my own water neck as this is not available aftermarket. I put some photos in the Lincoln Restoration section. Very easy to make, got a 90 deg sch40 bend and cut a piece of it, welded to a short straight section and the flange. Will outlast the car now with 4x more thickness than ...

Re: Lincoln 430 Manual Shift Bellhousing

If your 430 is able to mount to a Ford C6 then any FE bell housing will fit. If it is the 66-68 Lincoln C6 you have a 462. The 462 has a dual bell housing pattern cast into the back of the engine that may or may not be tapped for the 61-65 Cruise-O-Matic, which has a 5 bolt bell. A man told me that ...

Re: 383 Replacement?

An FE will bolt up to the transmission but I don't know if your 59 Mercury engine mounts are like a 59 Lincoln or like a 59 FE. For reference here is a 65 430 mounted in place of a 1966 F100 352 FE. If you have a 45° steel thermostat housing it may be a little harder getting the upper hose to fit. h...

A few more pictures and measurements of a Lincoln 430 MEL, FT bell housing and Clark 250V in a 66 F-100 long wheel base chassis.

Re: 1965 Lincoln 430 MEL To 1965 F-250

A little more progress. Here is a good look at the back of the block with an FE and FT starter alignment / spacer plate. Notice how the FT bell housing kicks the starter out at the bottom to clear the larger flywheel. IMG_20190819_181448.jpg IMG_20190819_181056.jpg IMG_20190819_181128.jpg IMG_201908...

Re: 1960 2 barrel intake wanted

Hi Chris, thanks for your reply. Do you mean I can find them on this forum right now, or maybe somewhere in de future on eBay or so?

Re: 1960 2 barrel intake wanted

Hi, I'm looking for an original 1960 2 barrel to fit back on my Lincoln. It now has a 4 barrel, and is not correct for the 1960 model year. Does anyone have a correct intake and willing to sell? Thanks, Ferdy Comb through these classifieds. I had several I posted here for a few years. I scrapped th...
