    1998 Mark VIII LSC transmission

    I have the same leak but was told it's coming from the rear transmission seal on the tail of the transmission. Have to remove fuel tank to remove drive shaft, is what I was told. So waiting until the fuel pump needs changing. But now I'll have to check this o-ring and see it that's the actual...

    98 LSC Stolen

    Here I thought mine was the only Ivory 98 LSC in Omaha. Nice to know there's another. Sorry to hear about your misfortune with the theft but glad they didn't do any more damage than they did. Could have been a lot worse I suppose.

    Doing my heater core at work tomorrow, need advice or a writeup.

    If you're going through the dash to get to the valve cover gaskets you MIGHT want to re-think your strategy. Jus' sayin'..... :)

    Need advice on OEM tire replacement

    Need to buy new tires as the Michellin's are weather checked badly on the side walls. Tread is still okay but not great. Am looking at three different brands but want to stick with OEM size: Pirelli--Cinturato P7 All Season Plus $106 ea. Bridgestone--Potenza RE97AS $117 ea...

    Missing a wheel cap

    You're right. Chrome. (Didn't even know they made the silver until I saw them on ebay.)

    Missing a wheel cap

    Nope, not snow flakes. They're the directionals w/the 2 1/4" cap. I did find some on ebay but if anyone has some they'd care to sell, I'd just as soon buy from a member. Let me know.

    Missing a wheel cap

    Never came across this before. I looked at my front driver's side wheel the other morning and the cap was missing. Not sure if it left on it's own or if someone needed one more than I did. Anyway, where does someone look for one of these? Ebay?

    Clock Spring

    Sorry to hear. I'm going to be pulling my steering column to deal with a dodgy potentiameter on the steering column. Can you detail what you did that caused the clockspring to break? Might help others avoid the problem. Thanks!
