Does Ford make a repair kit for the Air Susp Lines? I cant find any compression fittings that will work, odd ball size. This is the one that runs across the firewall. Seems Red LSC had his alternator short out and the hot wire melted it.

Chuck, is the damaged airline just focused to a small area?? Also, does the repair have to be "perfect"? How about cutting away the damaged area and splicing the ends together? I did this when I replaced my compressor. I used a small "sleeve" from a section of plastic tubing (similar to washer fluid tubing ), butted the airline ends together and used a couple of plastic zip ties to button things up. This has worked great for years and the repair is clean because it all fits under the plastic line cover.

Good Luck,
Mike

No it dosent have to be perfect, it is just a pinhole. Was that the plastic tubing , or like a vacum line rubber? Dont think everyone knows about this site yet, e-mail everyone you can and get them here.

Chuck. Just a pinhole? great! This should work just fine. I used vaccum line tubing. It was a snug fit, which is what I was looking for. Use 2 or 3 small zip ties on each end and you should be all set :)

Blk LSC 89, the fix worked thanks alot. The tubing was real snug and had to oil it to get it on so it is really tight.

Air suspension repairs

Just in case you guys didn't know,
There's a company out there that deals SPECIFICALLY with Lincoln Air Ride Suspension systems. They can provide new air bags, new compressors, sensors, and very possibly (as I haven't checked) air lines. The website is: http://www.bagmasterair.com
I would suggest that any of you that need to make any repairs to your systems, check this place out as they are probably one of the premier places for Mark VII and Continental air ride suspension issues. Hope it helps.

Tim:)
