1985 inline 6 4.9liter
I have a 1985 Ford F150, I start by telling you what I have done. Replaced all the following Distrubtor Cap, Rotor,Iginition control mod, coil, plug wires, igniton relay, fuel filter (x2). Still no spark I checked out the plug to the coil it is getting power it read 11.89 volts. and one have a idea why I still not getting spark?
You missed 1 very important item that can shut it all down, the distributor pickup coil, if it fails it all quits working.
Thanks where is located?
Inside the distributor. see pic
Do you have to pull distributor to replace
It depends on the the distributor. The ones with the windows that passes through the hall effect has to be pulled and disassembled, the ones with just the star wheel that is held in place with a small roll pin you don't. 85 should be the one with the roll pin. The pic is of a V8 but yours should be similar.
OK put in a whole new distributor with a pickup coil, Still wont start it cranks but wont start. Like I said before it has a new distributor with new cap and rotor new plugs new ICM, new ignition coild, new ignition starter relay new ICM module connector because the old one the wires had broken off the connector . And body have any other ideas
If it was a rebuilt distributor you could still have the same problem with the pickup, I had it happen to me more times than I'd like to count. So double check the wiring and I would still replace the pickup. See pic.
Thanks the Distributor is a brand new one. I will however double check the wiring.
