Look for the third bolt on the top of the starter. It may have to be accessed past the engine mount with a long extension.

Where is the flasher relay located on my 97 continental? I have looked under the dash and no luck. The auto parts store does not even list a part number for a 97. At first the rt blinker stopped working...

The Lincoln Continental flasher is integrated into the "Multifunction light control module" part # 13c788. Cost junk yard around $50. There is no stand alone flasher relay as in the older or more senseably engineered and cheaper cars.

Hope helps.

Starter wires geting hot while cranking and starter drags

Check to make sure the Starter is bolted up tight first. Then check to make sure there is a good ground between the engine block and the battery. If cable connections are ok you will probably need to replace your starter.

I need to take the starter off of a 91 lincoln contintal

There is a second bolt that has to come off it is usually 180 degrees across from the 14 mm bolt. Once this is removed take off and disconnect any wire harnesses that are attatched to the starter. When you put the new one on be sure to disconnect the battery neg. pole first so you don'y blow the starter.
Good Luck
