1984 bronco in not firing

Asked by May 19, 2013 at 07:23 PM about the 1984 Ford Bronco II XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1984 bronco ii.  I was trying to figure out why it would die when I
slowed to stop.  I've replaced distributor, rotary coil, distributor cap, rotary
cap, plugs and wires.  It did not fix the dying problem so I was still
working on that.  Now it won't start.  It will turn over and we get fire from
the coil to cap but the plugs are not picking up fire.  Any thoughts?

You say that the coil is firing but the plugs are not, so you need to check for spark at the distributor coil wire, if you have spark there then remove the distributor cap and check the carbon brush in the center of the cap and make sure it is not broken off or missing, if it is intact then look at the rotor, make sure it is the correct type and not a resistor rotor and not damaged. At this point you should have found the problem.
