it could might want to check the dist gear first. ps if it jumped most likely would turn over faster than normal.

Have you tried a little starting fluid in the intake to see if it will and run for a bit on that? If it will then you have a fuel delivery problem, injectors or no injector pulse, check injector fuse, if won't run then you have either an ignition or compression problems. Check your spark plugs for proper gap and heat range also my want to run a dry then wet compression test.

Did anyone figure this out? I am working on a 93 ford f150 4.9L. Fuel pump works. Good pressure. All cylinders are getting spark. Great compression. Plenty of air. Rotor turns. Its timed right. And it will not start! Even using starting fluid! Any ideas? Please!

Well... this forum sucks! Thanks for nothing! But just so ya know the exhaust was plugged and fouled or burnt the plugs. So after unplugging the exhaust and doing a tune up on it runs!
