Parts for Accumulator Piston Repair for 1993 to 1997 Mark VIII's:
F7AZ-7F251-AA updated 1-2 accumulator piston $12.00
F75Z-7F284-AA upper/top (light blue) spring $3.25
F7AZ-7F284-BA lower/bottom (purple) spring $32.50

If your Mark VIII (1993 to mid year 1997) shifts hard or shudders into 2nd gear you may have a problem with the 1-2 shift accumulator in the transmission. The piston rocks in the bore and damages the O-ring causing erratic 1-2 shifts. It is a simple job if you are changing the filter. All you need to change the piston after you remove the pan is a snap ring pliers. It is recommended that you replace the piston and spring in the transmission when you service it. The new piston has a totally different design and the O-ring are thicker. The top spring is taller than the original. Use Mercon V when servicing the transmission and make sure that the torque converter is drained. There is a dust cover on the bottom of the bell housing. You have to spin the motor over until you can access the small drain plug. You will replace about 12 quarts of transmission fluid. Use Mercon V fluid only, do not use older formulations. It is not necessary to replace the pan gasket, it is reusable.
The above simple inexpensive repair is advisable as preventative maintenance even if you are not experiencing a shifting problem at this time. for more deatiled instuctions see the 1-2 accumulator paper.
It is easy to tell if you have the old or new piston in your transmission by their appearance.

This was the standard dress up cover for the alternator in 1997 only. The engine had a full shroud cover from 1993 to 1996. This alternator cover was eliminated in 1998 as a cost cutting measure. This alternator cover is available from the dealer for about $30. It dresses up the engine nicely for 1998's and for 1993-1996's who have removed the shroud. The cover is pictured in the center of the engine below.
You need these parts that you can order from the Lincoln dealer: The part number for the Studs 2 pieces is N807403-S2 The part number for the Nuts 2 pieces is N808455-S100. These parts cost approximately $23. You will need to cut off approximately 1 inch from the top of the studs for a proper fit. The nuts are tightened with the end of a 1/4 drive ratchet.
A cheaper alternative is to use two 6 X 50 mm (1.00mm thread) bolts. You will need a spacer between the cover and the top of the generator mount. Alexander Sosiak used plastic door clips from the interior of a '70's Ford. All that needs to be done is to cut off the end leaving the barrel part and then drill out the inside with a ~6mm drill.
