Please don't take this wrong (I'm trying to help you out) but you can also ask the same questions on the Mark VIII board, www.markviii.org.
I'm not sure that there are mainly Lincoln owners lurking on this one so an answer might be slow in coming. There are some pretty radical Lincolns rolling around and the Mark VIII board is chock full of good, specific info.
Hope this helps with your buying decision.
