    where to get cooling fan motor

    If you uncover the wiring harness on your Mark VIII, you will find one wire terminates to nothing. So basically you have 2 wires going to the fan motor.

    96 Mark VIII Cranks but no start when engine warm?

    Need more info... short of that we're spitballing. Maybe check for codes again? If it were mine, I'd be curious what the plugs looked like. That would require pulling the plugs when the 'no-start' happens. Obviously you would need to pre-plan. Next random thought would be the IACV. I believe...

    96 Mark VIII Cranks but no start when engine warm?

    Test for fuel pressure first. You can rent or buy a gauge to attach to the fuel rail schrader valve. Attach the gauge, turn the key on and see if you get pressure.

    96 Mark VIII Cranks but no start when engine warm?

    Have you tried to depress the accelerator to the floor when cranking? From your description, it sounds like it is flooding during the warm restart. If that is the case, when the accelerator is held to the floor for wide open throttle, the fuel injectors are shut off which helps clear the...

    Just totaled my Mark VIII

    I took this "total"... ... and rebuilt it to this... I used a parts car and did most of the work myself with the exception of replacing the quarter panel and final paint.

    Alignment: Ford tech mounted two tires in 5x108 & 2 in 5x110

    I've always heard you want as much caster as possible, so I don't think I'd lose sleep over it. Could just be a glitch in the software?

    Subsitution a 2000 to 2002 conti or towne lincoln susp. compressor for a mark 8 1996-1998?

    I couldn't swear to it but I've seen the Town Car compressors and they are not much like the Mark VIII compressors, so I would say no.

    Which coil spring conversion should I buy?

    It's not the air suspension, it's the worn out suspension bushings and shocks(front/rear). If the bags hold air, they are better than coil springs - it's the other suspension components you need to concentrate on!
