Thank you very much for the reply.. I feel pretty sure about proper reconnections ....but You mentioned the proper alternator ...and now I am wondering if that is the case ...It is made by Visteon ..could it be that the parts house he had it delivered from brought the wrong one ? Do you know of a way I could check ( AMPS.output or alternator model # etc.?) Any additional help would truly be appreciated !!

Hi, I might be a bit too late with this; but,
the 1990 Lincoln Town Car just happened to have the WINDSOR motor.
Yes, this is a 302 V-8 but most importantly it is a Windsor. The Windsor was only used in Town Cars in 1990.
I have a 1990 Town Car, it has 249,659 miles on it and still runs strong it does not burn or leak oil at all between oil changes.

Memory says in 1980 the TC had the 302 as their standard engine,however, only in that year was the 351 optional. I owned the 1980 351 until it was totaled in a parking lot crash. It was replaced with a 1982 TC with the 302 engine which was the only available engine up & including 1990 and 1990 was the last year for the 302. 1991 was the first year for the TC to have the 4.6 engine.

Recommend the 4.6L V8 found in the 91 & on TC's. The 302 in the 90 is a good engine for powering Mustangs of that era, but not the 4200 lb cars.
