Question about 1985 Ford F150
I started out by adjusting the idle on my carbutor and then I changed out my cap & rotor, after that it would not start. It has a fully charged battery. Is there some way I could had disconnected a wire or wires. I took off two different spark plug wires and checked for spark and did not have any. I then did the same with the coil. Because of the depth of the spark plug boot I also tried putting a nail in there and grounding it to the block. Still no spark. Also going to my carburetor is a lot of electrical wires that look like they go to a solenoid. It has a rod that comes out by the idle screw and looks like it affects the idle. Could this have anything to do with it not starting? It was starting and running find before.
Your ignition relay could be bad, there are fuses and relays that feed power to the distributor, easiest way to find them would be to follow the battery leads from the battery to the coil and cap, check all the inline fuses and relays/solenoid
