65-68 MEL Distributors Self Oiling And Elecronic?

Before I do an electronic conversion on my C4VE distributor I want to know if a 65-68 MEL distributor is self oiling and is electronic.
Thanks

The part number on that last photo of the pistons is a 1961 number.
The same piston was used in 1960, it's casting is EDJ - B9LE-6110-A. Is this the same piston design used in 62?

Cylinder Head Exhaust Ear Repair Success Rate?

Judging by what I have in front of me and what I have seen on a couple of other Lincolns it is a combination of a bad exhaust manifold design, double gasketing and over tighting. With the heads exhaust ports are kind of thin closest to the valve cover rail I am curious on the success rate of repairs...

Hello Tony. Did you inherit the whole car or do you have another vehicle in mind? Lots of experienced hands on this forum.

Re: Correct 1960 Thunderbird 430 Engine Options?

Thanks Royce. I pulled that link down. A second look it was plain to see the FE. I read about 1960 3 Duec Thunderbirds but couldn't find any pictures. Is that a myth?

Correct 1960 Thunderbird 430 Engine Options?

I found 4 barrel and 3 Duce's. Are both options correct? Was the 1960 4 barrel a B9ME?
Thanks

Used 1960-1961 430 Pistons

I have 14 of these. One has water pitting. They are slightly different than 58 to 59 and completely different than 1963-1965 pistons but I cannot say for sure if they were used in 1962 engines. My new mic will be in soon and skirt measurements will taken before selling. $40 for all 14 plus shipping ...

New And Used 430 Pistons

New set of eight STANDARD 4.3" BORE Lincoln 430 pistons with pins. I picked these up from an abandoned 64 430 build but my engine needs bored so I don't need these pistons. Although these flat tops are said to work I am choosing the Wiseco stepped piston for my build. Do your own research as to how ...
