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...

Re: Newbie from Vegas

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

Re: 430 internal oil tubes

If it is the lines that go to the vacuum pump mounted to the oil pump, then it is a vacuum line. I am not going to use the fittings off my 60. If your in the US you can have mine.

Re: PBB-7003-F Questions

Looks like the gear selector is the same throw as the COM. I didn't find any comments to my strength comparisson question vs a C6 but I didn't find anything negative about the Twin Range either. Doesn't look like a bad transmission. Thanks for your help.
