Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car
The gears on the distributor and cam might not have been the right material. Ex. cast iron gear on distributor and steel gear on cam is not compatable. The same thing happened to me on a derby car.

Make sure the tensioner is tight to the specifications and in propper place.
See CHECKING YOUR TIMING BELT and TENSION.
You may need to Replace Your Timing Belt if you don't fix it putting it in tension.
Timing belt slipping off can badly damage valves, causing a damage that requires an expensive repair, do not circulate if timing belt is not OK, see :Cost estimate for valve job after timing belt slip
