Be careful here, do you mean a Lincoln V8 engine? They came with a Hydramatic, the Mercury came with a completely different transmission.

The GM Hydramatic was used by Lincoln along with several other car companies outside GM. Also most GM makes. So there are lots of them around, there should be several Hydramatic specialists. I don't know of any off hand but if you look on the Cadillac and Lincoln boards they can help you.

Rusty is right, you should identify what you have before proceeding, but I bet it is a Hydramatic with a Lincoln engine.

Where are you located? My favorite knowledgable Hydramatic guy is:
