Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

Possible. That, or maybe the starter has the wrong gear in it...there could be different ones, but I don't know for sure on this particular application.

65 mustang l6 200 cid. Starter motor seems to keep "locking" up flywheel. Why is it doing that? Best fix?


This could be a starter solenoid defect but if this has been a problem for some time, the ring gear could be chewed up or have missing or broken teeth. Itmay be possible to fix the problem by shimming the solenoid but I would check out the other items first

Starter won't engage


check your flywheel & starter, one or both will be missing teeth, or the starter isn't "throwing out" yo engage flywheel

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

Need spark plug wiring diagram for 1965 ford


Try this. If the distributor is in the right way, the clips that hold the cap on should be just a hair off of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. #1 is positioned at 1 o'clock, which is at the firewall side of the distributor. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8and is counterclockwise from #1. The passenger's side is cylinders 1-2-3-4, from the front of the car. The driver's side is 5-6-7-8 from the front. Hope this will help.
