It sounds to me like you have something binding up or building resistance due to heat. I have had a similar thing happen to me with different cars. It turned out to be a battery cable that was fine when cold, but when it warmed up, it would sag and touch against an exhaust pipe just enough so that when I went to start the vehicle, it would arc to the exhaust and lose battery power that was normally used for starting it. Another time it turned out to be the negative cable not making good enough contact. The Ford 300, 6cyl. engine is a very good solid dependable unit, but ford has always had quite long battery cables and issues with the way the were grounded. I would check my cables and maybe replace them for good measure. Also be certain that your negative cable is very solidly grounded to the block of the engine.

What could be the problem with my Ford 4000 tractor starting, I've checked the starter,cylinoid and battery?


Have you cleaned the battery cable connections? If they are dirty the battery can't put out enough current to turn the starter.

Location of 2006 water pump 3.5L


Five most likely causes 1. dead battery 2. faulty starter cylinoid 3. faulty ignition switch 4.loose connection at any of the points5 faulty starter relay. the battery can be removed and taken to most any parts store and checked. likewise with the starter/cylinoid. checking for loose or bad connections is pretty self explanatory. move from connection to connection and check for loose connections or corrosion. once you know your battery and starter are in working order (you should only be into this project for your time at this point) you can check your ignition switch and starter relays with a voltmeter and/or test light to identify where the current is stopping. hope this helps good luck!

How do you set the points on a196 cu. in motor


Mark the position of the distributor. Remove cap. Loosen the distributor hold down bolt.and turn distributor to raise the points cam follower to one of the lobes on the cam. Remove the screw that holds the points assembly. Remove points with the capacitor attached. Put you new points in the same position as the ones that you removed. Points should have .030" gap. Tighten points- hold-down screw. Turn the distributor to the original (marked) position. Tighten distributor hold-down bolt. You should now be able to start, but you may need to set the timing.

Caprice 5.0 won't start but turns almost over


you need three things, fuel, air, and spark. the fuel and air should be ok. Let's check the timing. Oh. are you sutre the firing order is right with the wires? Ok, they are,right? Now set the timing marks on front of engine to match up at 4 degrees after you bring #1 piston to top dead center.on compression stroke.you can tell when its on compression stroke by removing spark plug and bumping the starter untill the piece of tissue you put in the plug hole blows out.then once the timing marks are lined up,check what wire the rotor is pointing at. If its close to #1, turn distributor slowly either way untill you hear a spark jump or pop. Lay #1 plug wireon the engine with the spark plug stuck in it. When the spark pops, the plug will fire at the timing mark setting. put plug back in, minus the tissue, put the wire back on and sng doe your distributor. the firing order is casted on the intakke manifold. Like 18436572. Going around top of dis cap start at the wire you know is #1.and in the direction the distributor turns make sure wires are in that order on your manifold.don't forget to secure the distributor cap..I this distributor has points the dwell/gap will have to be set while running with an allen wrench and dwell meter.at32 degrees. No points,no ptoblem. no setting. button it all up and look around for loose anythings, especially tools on top of radiator and light it it up. Final timing should be set with a timimg light. Any problems , I'll be on the puter bot noon o clock my time. Good Luck.
