As this site is International some car models reuse names in different Countries. In the USA, the Galaxy was a 1960's era car.

In a 1960 era car, things are a lot less complicated. You might want to resubmit about the year of your car and if the engine cranks or not.

If the engine cranks you need power to the coil through the ignition switch. Disconnect the plus + wire from the coil, hook up a voltage meter and turn on the ignition switch to observe voltage. Fix accordingly. Check for spark at plugs after reconnecting coil power.

Try starting fluid to substitute for fuel. No fire condition can mean distributor shaft is not turning, timing chain problems, etc.

1965 ford galaxy 500 352 v8 wont stay running

Are you sure you have the plug wires on right, and the point gap is right ? I am assuming you have checked the carb and ruled out a fuel problem.

Hi i am working for neavy as a technition we recantle observed an electrical problam that is in a statof a fresh day self is no lifting(starting),once if it is push started we can not find the same problam...

make sure the battery is fully charged BEFORE starting, you might have a small battery drain that kills the battery over night and when you push start it, the alternator kicks in and charges it up enough thru use of the day to fool you

If you mean wont turn over, most likely its the neutral safety switch. If it turns over but wont start I suggest the coils have gone bad.
