ID:	182710So i been waiting to find a 4.6l 2v and found this one out of an 2005 Lincoln Towncar for $400.00 it has 55,000 miles on it. took a jump box with me and it started instantly.

Fine time to start asking questions but here goes.

I have a Ford PI intake from a 2002 Hoping it will bolt up

Power steering is mounted differently again i'm assuming i can swap brackets.

Dip sticks are different planning on using my old one.

Any tips or tricks anyone knows with swapping a 98 to an 05, let me know

I will put it on the stand and start cleaning and painting i may even wait to swap it until late fall.

Good deal, I just paid $575 delivered for a 05 Marquis motor with 38k on it. $400 for one with 55k on it is a real good deal. I have the exact same motor as you. The Vic/Marquis/Continental motors are identical.





What you are going to do is pull both motors, put them on stands next to each other and swap EVERYTHING from your Mustang motor to the 05. Except the heads/cams/intake/valve covers obviously.


The 05 is a PI motor so it has a PI intake already. Keep whatever one is in better shape and sell the other one but the intake will have to come off both motors to pull them without risking ****ing up the plastic.


A good way to pull these things is to get a load leveler on your cherry picker (you DO have a load leveler right?) and remove the alternator/intake. Attach the front two chains to the alternator bolt holes going right into the iron block and the other 2 chains should go to the top two transmission bolts at the top of the rear of the block. You can see the front bolts I am talking about right above the water pump in my pic. The rear ones are obvious.


I mean its pretty simple honestly.

That's exactly what i'm going to do, in fact how i got to this point is i was looking for PI heads. i have a set off an 03 explorer but they are the short thread and a little wore out.

when i started pricing out heads, gaskets and you know how it goes all the other stuff bolts bearing i was in way over $400.00 i figure by the time i swap it with the motor i just bough i'm in for less than $600.00. I do have a Harbor Freight leveler

Hey thought i would show you my next project and thought you would appreciate it

Thanks for the info i'm sure i will have more questions

Lol nice. Yeah I was looking at the cost of a basic rebuild of the motor that was in my car. Even the most basic rebuild would be double what I paid if not more. I'm hoping to make most or all of this $$$ back parting out the motor in the car. 34k mile heads/cams/valve covers, block, and crank should bring $400-$500. I'd go in that direction on your build too, part everything you don't need.

If you are looking at a built motor like I am in the next few years the Vic motor is a good placeholder and you can build something on a stand in the meantime like I plan on doing after I find a clean 3V (aluminator) block and another forged crank. I'm still pissed I sold my Teksid and forged crank after I sold my 98...

LIncoln town car and lincoln continental are very different engines.

THe continental is a 32 valve engine FWD style mount.
The town car is basically the same as a vic/marquis.

Eh, 2v motor. If one is doing a swap and can't tell the difference visually then they should probably not be touching anything mechanically.

^See if they do delivery. I paid $25 for them to bring it right to my house and lower it down on the pickup truck's power lift so I could bolt my engine stand to it and just roll it back away from the rear of the truck. TOTALLY worth it vs me trying to get it myself.

Lol I hear that about the room. I'm working with a single car garage right now that is just big enough for what I want to do. Need to see if I can get non-temp storage from base housing so I can get all my wife's **** in storage out of the garage and put it there and have room to work lol.

I paid $100 more delivered for what like 18k less miles and no accessories. Well I did get the water pump and the COPs which was what I was really hoping for. Unsure if the Romeo WP will line up with the Windsor accessories but I'll find out. If not I have a 34k mile replacement... or just throw in a new one.

My father says I should just vinyl the roof lol. You can see the difference in the paint. Its not super noticeable but it's there and I know it would drive me nuts. It's either that or go for broke and try to do the whole roof.
