A couple of things that come to mind are the coil, coil wire, rotor or distributor cap. The coil or coil wire could be bad. The coil wire could be not fully seated. The ignition wire to the coil, or the wire from the coil to the points may have broken inside the insulation, but you say you're getting power to the points, so that's probably not it. The distributor cap may not be completely, or correctly seated. The arm on the rotor may need to be adjusted so that it is high enough to contact the center post on the distributor cap.
Hope this helps and have an excellent day!

Hello, I see you have changed all but the condensor? this may be the last item to sort it?
Have you tried a hot wire direct to the coil to eliminate ignition switch?
Hope this helps!
Please remember to rate my effort.

How do i remove and reinstall the distributor on ford falcon 4.0 1999 model


First make absolutely sure #1 cylinder is at top dead and the timing mark on the crank pulley is lined up. Pop off the distributor cap and check to see if the rotor is pointing to the #1 spark plug wire. Loosen the bolt that holds the clamp at the base of the distributor. Move it aside or remove it them pull up on the distributor and move it out.

Does it have spark at the plugs? Does it have fuel in the carburetor? Is the valve timing OK and the chain hasn't failed?

1989 f 150 loss of power in 2nd and misses the hole time..it has a 5.0 changed plugs wires cap and button and coil...dont know what else to do


if you already did a tune up, make sure you have the correct firing order. Ford made 2 different 5.0 one was for the mustang another for the truck. the mustang 5.0 firing order started 1,3,7,2,6,5,4,8 the truck firing order if I can recall correctly started 1,5,4,2,6,3,7,8. also might want to check or replace fuel pump.

1962 Ford Falcon. While driving it quits just like turning off the key. No warning. Sometimes if you get the choke just right is recovers but normally dies. Restarts and then goes maybe a mile or maybe 10...


Make sure the carb is well bolted down. It was a common problem on these cars for the carbs to shake loose. Do not overtighten. 40 ft.lbs. should be enough. Also make sure your vacuum pull off is working & not losing vacuum. Tighten scews holding the carb together also. Dont overtorque these screws. Also any other vacuum lines that are old need changing. Good luck!

1. points not opening or closing
2. Bad condenser
3 bad rotor or cap
4. Bad coil
5. Not likely but could be just a bad wire from the switch to the coil.

First you need to know if you have voltage to the coil -- if yes- go to 6.
if no -- go to 7 ..

6. Put a piece of thick paper between the points contacts, then check for voltage at the points from the coil . If there is voltage at the points ,, check the gap with the points wiper set on the high side of the lobe on the cam in the distributor . A gap of .015-.018 is most common on that engine.
7. If no voltage then back track to the ignition switch ,, fuse box , then battery

I put a plug wire in the coil output to the distributor and a plug in the other end -- lay plug on block and crank engine .. If there is spark at the plug , your in the ball game . If the spark is orange change capacitor if blue spark good to go . you might want to clean and gap your plugs before you reinstall them .

I agree, jumped timing. Check to make sure the dist is tight. Than check for tdc on the #1 cylinder. When the #1 cyl is TDC the rotor should be pointing to that wire on the cap. Take the cap off while checking. Also is easier to turn motor by hand without plugs in motor.
