1985 ford bronco has gas and spark but will not start?
get a NEW battery as yours is going to be older than five...NAPA and Interstate will "pro-rate" your old one for some scrap value~ wirebrush black cable connection to chassis ground...and cable clamps remove corrosion...protect your eyes...use gloves....keep it safe~
the basics, air, fuel, spark, timing and finally valve timing all need inspection to proceed~ ....fuel, have you got a mechanical pump on this one? is the diaphragm okay...still puttin out with the juice, bruce?~
Thanks for the info. Will check ground connections. hadn't thought of that. At first thought was timing, still not sure if I got that right.got an older mechanical pump. will check that out too. thanks again. gives me places to check.
Run a compression test as well. If all cylinders test low you've got a jumped timing chain. HTH. -Jim
sounds like timeing chain to me. If you have fuel and spark and will not start. Your timeing is off. Replace chain and the gears not just the chain
