Question about 1981 Ford F 100

1 Answer

I have a 1981 F100 Big 6 truck that will not

I have a 1981 F100 Big Six engine that will not start. It turns over but just will not hit. When I raise the hood, I smell fuel-like it's flooded-but I did not use the accelerator in the process. My first thought is no fire (rotor button, coil, etc.) but I also lean toward the choke. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you...Steve

If your smelling alot of fuel without using the pedal at all the floats are most likely stuck open in the carb. Which will cause it to flood out. I would check for spark first the go from there.

Don't know where to poor my oil in my 1981 ford f100. there is not filler tube


there shouldn't be a filler tube, just a dipstick tube for checking the oil level. to put the oil in the engine, there should be a oil cap on the right hand side valve cover. if the dipstick tube isn't there, you definitely need to get one from a parts yard or store, you can be losing oil from the dipstick hole that goes to the oil pan...

Cleaned out carburator on a F100 straight 6. Now


I would suspect there is dirt in the idle system, did you blow the jets and passages out with compressed air.

Ned to now wat the firing order for dist cop shood be for a 1987 ford f100 pick-up truck 300sixcylender stick shift model#333


The F100 ended in 1983, so there is some confusion on your 1987 Ford F100. The F150 started in 1983 and was available in 1987, but not the F100. You have this listed under the 1981 Ford F100 category.
The 300 CID = 4.9L In-Line (Straight) 6-Cylinder.
In order to best answer your question I have included both the 1981 F100 4.9L and 1987 F150 4.9L below. The only difference is with the Distributor Cap Configuration and Connections.

For the 1981 F100 300cid=4.9L:
Firing order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
...6
...5
...4
...3

Distributor:

For the 1987 F150 300cid=4.9L:
Firing Order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:

..6

Transmission for a 1978 Ford F100


The transmission should have the label "FMX" upon the center lower drivers side of the body. This was Ford's largest and heaviest tranny they ever made for commercial(privately owned) trucks.They only produced this model for 8 years.

1982 FORD F100 PICKUP


It is possible that you do have bad rings and is causing an excess amount of crankcase pressure. Since you just have a hose hooked up now. Try running it to the big port vacuum fitting on the base of the carb.
