I don't know about Lincolns but with the vehicles I drive (mid 80's Toyota trucks) the starter contacts can get pitted and give the symptoms you describe. In all the vehicles I have owned (a lot and none newer than '87) replacing the starter is easy. I am a 47 year old female who has replaced things like starters herself since I left home at 18. No prior mechanical experience (well, I have a lot now) just neccesity and willingness with a little smarts thrown in.
Get the factory service manual for your vehicle from a library and just peruse it. You may learn quite a bit even if you elect to have someone else that already owns all the tools do the greasy part.
