I washed my 70' ford f100 engine now it wont start ideas?
Yes try drying out the distributor.
Dry out the distributor, distributor cap and wires and it should fire up.
Same time TS,but good answer.
You got the distributor wet! Remove the distributor cap and dry the underside of it. Also dry out the points, condenser, and rotor. Dry everything out really well. Any moisture under there will wreak havoc on the ignition system. Next time cover the distributor with a plastic grocery store bag before washing the engine. HTH. -Jim
