Question about 1988 Ford F 150
I replaced the push rod gasket on my 4.9 staight six, and after it would not start i foun a ruined spark plug so replaced all six. it wants to start but wont. any sugestions?
Did it run prior to replacing the side cover gasket? Also what kind of damage did you observe with the spark plug. Bent electrode ? Shattered porcelain? Just fouled?
Did you remove the distributor to remove the cover? If so did you drop the distributor back in correctly so that the rotor was lined up correctly to fire the correct plug? Need to know more information to help you. If you distributor is off a couple of teeth it will never start. It will turn over and pop and backfire somewhat.
