Re: MAJOR UNDERTAKING
You might have an accessibility issue in the Expedition that the Lincoln doesn't have (thought they were the same vehicle). Not sure how much room you have above the engine, but often you can block up the engine rather than pull it.
What you do is jack up the front end, block up the engine and unbolt it from the mounts, then lower the body. Depending on the geography of your engine, you might be able to remove the mounts and raise the body high enough to gain better access from below.
Don't know how things set in you r engine bay, but if it's anything like the vans, I don't envy you.
