79 351 windsor wont turn off

The engine turns over and starts just fine but when I go to shut it off nothing happens. I have to pop the clutch to kill the engine, but the battery drains over night.

SOURCE: need info to rebuild 351 windsor motor 1998

port polish only on heads, they crack plus valve job. on the block and cam, that motors all torque so go with low end output, fat cam, 30 over max on bore-they crack. safest way for big power is a stroke kit. call edelbrock tell them you wishes and what you have now, main thing is how much your gonna have to bore to clean up walls, and they give you some good options. unless you have alota money and dont require this motor to be dependable dont expect more than 320hp and 350 ft of torque. 302 will take you farther cheaper and lighter for your money. if your talking for a car and not a truck- go 302 and dont look back

Engine turns over but will not start only when engine is warm


my car has the same exact problem!! i have 2 pop the clutch 2 get it started when it is hot. Mine starts great when its cold or hasn't ran 4 awhile but when we are driving around for more than about 20 min in it when we stop it doesn't start at all. it wont even turn over. so i have 2 have my husband push it while i pop the clutch & then it starts & runs fine till the next time we turn it off. its not a battery problem as we'v replaced the battery, & the starter & the alternater are fine as we'v had them tested. hopefully someone that knows & has fixed this problem can answer this mystery problem!! hopefully some1 can :D

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is going bad. Next time it does this to you with the engine off and the selector in neutral pop the clutch by pushing it down all the way then letting your foot slide off to the side so it's pops up and then see if you can start it. If this works you need to adjust the clutch and or replace the neutral safety switch on the transmission.

Anyone have a clue as to why the ignition locked out?

Battery works - I get nothing when I turn the key to start it.


It may be the neutral safety switch. Turn the key while moving the clutch in and out...see if anything pops.. Check for a fuse on the safety switch...should have something noted in the owners' manual.. The n.safety switch is the place to start.

Starter solenoid , or wire that leads to it.

Also , if standard transmission , may be the switch on clutch pedal is intermitant.

Engine won't turn over unless it thinks you have your foot on the clutch.

Ignition problem


Check the starter fuse. Could have popped, and would explain the trouble.

No electrical power to engine


check you fuses and clean your battery terminals, you might have a relay that controls you ignition. or could be your coil pack.
