Question about 1989 Ford F 250
I've got a 460 in a 38' RV. The previous owner left the ignition key on for a few days and burned up something. I've replaced the distributor (with pick-up module), the coil, the ignition module (on firewall), and still no spark. I've got 12v at BOTH terminals of the coil, but can't find a ground problem either. HELP!! I have an 89 F 250 with the 460. The water pump went out. I replaced the water pump and now the truck won't start. There is no spark. I replaced the coil and still nothing. What is the next step? It's fuel injected and I was told that it still has points that I should check. Is that true?
Since the distributor is in the front on the 460 and you replaced the water pump check the connection plug coming from the distributor. If you disconnected it when removing the water pump you may not have made the connection tight enough to complete the connection. Look for pinched wires also. And your engine does not have points. You have a breakerless ignition system in the distributor. The air gap should be set at 8 thousands of an inch. Check the gap. Good luck.
