Description: This product is an electronic reproduction collection of the 1955 through 1956 Lincoln and Continental Mark II Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) released from June 25th, 1955 through October 5th, 1956. Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) are official communications between Ford & their dealerships that describe processes for troubleshooting or fixing certain common problems. TSB’s document recommended procedures for repairing vehicles, when there are several occurrences of an unanticipated problem. TSBs can range from vehicle-specific to covering entire product lines and break down the specified repair into a step-by-step process. While sometimes written by Ford engineers, the majority are authored by the first automotive technician to come up with a repair procedure. Because certain problems may have more than one cause and there is sometimes more than one way to fix a problem, there may be more than one TSB for the same problem.
TSB#4 NEW VALVE STEM OIL SEAL AND CYLINDER HEAD ASSEMBLIES 1955 Lincoln Engines: A new valve stem oil seal, part number B5A-6571-A, has been released for production and service on all 1955 Lincoln engines. The skirt on the new seal has been lengthened .100″ to protect a greater area of the valve stem from oil splash. The new oil seal is Ford controlled, “A” classified, and presently shown in the Master Price and Reference Book. Stock is presently available at the Mercury Division General Parts Depot.
TSB#15 POWER STEERING HOSE INTERFERENCE WITH UPPER A FRAME 1956 Lincoln: If power steering pressure hoses are found to interfere with the upper suspension arm the 351791 “Banjo” pressure hose fitting should be rotated. This fitting should be between the 8 and 9 o’clock positions as viewed from the left side of the car. If the fitting is below the 8 o’clock position it might allow the pressure hose to rub on the upper suspension arm.
TSB#31 ROCKER ARM COVERS LEAKING OIL AT THE REAR 1956 Lincoln: A few early rocker arm covers were produced with the bolt holes approximately 1/16″ out of location. This causes the inner flange of the cover to ride high on the cylinder head rail, allowing oil to leak under the gasket. This condition can be corrected by grinding away approximately 1/16″ of the inner flange for a length of 1-1/2″ at the rear of the cover. This condition has since been corrected in production.
TSB’s provide valuable information not typically found in the shop service manuals and can explain why some “fixes” were performed by Ford mechanics.
