mark vii brake conversion tech
Hey
I've had major problems with my '92 Mark VII. The brakes went on her in december and since then I have been trying desperately to get it fixed. Obviously the ABS/MC unit is far too expensive to buy new. I tried buying one from a junkyard and it ended up being cracked so now I'm out the $ for that POS and the labor involved. I'll be honest. I dont have the first clue about this kind of thing. The only thing I know is I love my Lincoln and I really want it fixed. Its been in the family for years, I couldn't part with it. I figured there was a way to bypass the system and go back to a non-ABS set up (seems like thats true from the posts here) but I have no idea how to go about doing it. The mechanics I've brought it to dont seem to know how/ want to do it either. If someone could just outline for me exactly what needs to be bought and what work is involved that would be awesome...Again I don't have the knowledge about this kind of thing but this is my first car and it belonged to my grandfather so I really want her up and running again. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Evan, you posted at the exact right time.
Just last week my ABS/MC took a dump.
While I had an extra unit in a box and in the attic, it definately had a bad accumulator.
Looked around and the cheapest I could find an accumulator is $280.
BUT, while looking around, I found a company in IL that refurbs ABS units.

Bottom line is, I have a refurbed ABS unit -with new accumulator- on it's way back to me.
$300 round trip.

OK, back from the yard...

Looks like mid '90's Crown Vic OR SN95 Mustang have something that will work with the slightly smaller bore. If anyone else considers this, make sure you at least get the fittings on the lines to the m/c, as they MAY be metric. Worse case you'd have to flare some lines with the old fittings, which you're probably flaring lines anyway.

The SN95 m/c I saw was pretty accessible...I think I'm gonna go get it to play with...

not that I have owned a SVO before, but does this mean the SVo brakes are mushy as well....? They would have to ?

I stopped off at a parts house today, got them to pull a M/C for a 94-95 Mustang GT.
The two fittings in the pic are the adapters the factory brake lines thread into, which in turn thread into the bottom of our M/C.

They are a perfect fit.
You would still need to split for the front lines as the 95-95 had only two ports.
Food for thought.
