1977 Mark V Seat Issues

Bill,

Have a problem with the power seats (both left and right) on my rarely driven Lincoln (58K miles) . Seats are 6 way power and both tilt and up and down work fine. Neither will move back or forward. The motor seems to click once, lights dim but no movement. Tried the much touted press seat back while engaging switch with no results. Any suggestions?

Also, the sending unit in the gas tank is not working. Garage that installed new tank said unit not available; do you have a source?

Hope to clear up problems so I can sell this soon.

Thanks,

Joel

Hi Joel -

Power seat problems such as you describe are not uncommon. You will need to disassemble the non operating seat mechanism and inspect for binding or damaged parts. At this time a timely complete lubrication of all moving parts will be possible.

We have the means to rebuild your fuel sending unit here at Lincoln Land if it is faulty and rebuildable as well as a supply of power seat parts if you do find that you need any.

Sincerely,

Bill
