1972 F-250 with 360 engine. Turns over and fires but will not start. Fuel in tank fuel filter clear battery charged, new terminal cables and terminal ends what or where to look next
I was driving down the road stop at stop sign and my pickup started to sputter and backfire. Then died. I thought I was out of gas. Got gas and turned her over dead Towed her home. I charged the battery full up, changed the terminal cables and ends secured connections fuel in tank fuel going into carb inline fuel filter clear, cranks strong fires but no start. Where do I go next
I'd start with pulling the distributor cap and checking the points for proper gap. I once had a set vibrate loose and close up. In a pinch I used to matchbook cover as a thickness gauge and managed to get home. :)
Is it a duraspark ignition?
Ford started using Dura spark ignitions in 1973. I have a 1972 F-250 I put new breaker points in/rotor/condenser. I am now putting in new plugs. I hope she will start after this but I will let you know one way or the other thank you for your help. Any other ideas you might share are greatly appreciated.
I installed new points rotor condenser gap the points and Lulu is back on the road Thank you for your input. nothing like the rumble of a 1972 Ford truck, to make my day
