The older fords used a remote solinoid. the big terminal is a power all the time. the small one is the energizer and only gets hot when the key is in the start position. the third one that goes to the starter motor its self turns the motor. on the old solinoid on the fender you should find a small wire hooked to it hat only gets hot when you turn the key to start.lenghten it and attach to the small terminal on the starter. i would however see if you cant get the correct starter first, for it in my opinoin is the better system

I've already replaced the starter, battery, terminal posts, and alternator. It will start of a jump after charging for about ten minutes but will not start when switching the batteries out. It just do


Could be poor battery connections or bad (corroded) cables. Put a voltmeter on the battery: ideal would be over 12.6 volts, if less than 12.2 volts, recharge battery.

If you have a voltmeter, google "voltage drop test" to see how to check for high resistance to current flow. Check the positive battery cable from battery to the starter. It may help you find a poor connection.

With the shifter on the floor, the linkage would be different than a car with the shifter on the column.

What is the spark plug firing order for a 1989 Ford Bronco with a 302 Cu. In. V8 engine?


There are three kinds of 302s made from 1982-2001. 5.0L HO This engine was used in 1983-1995 Mustangs, Mark VII Lincolns, and some T-birds and Cougars. All Explorer 5.0L engines are 5.0L HO engines as well. They use the 351W firing order, 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. Except for the 1983-84 Mustangs, all of these engines are roller cam equipped. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover. The 1994-5 Mustang and all Explorers use a unique front cover and water pump. 5.0L Full Size Car This engine was used in 1982-1990 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis. They use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Most of these cars are not roller cam equipped, however sometime in the early 1990s they started using roller cams but retained the 302 firing order. They use a standard (clockwise) rotation water pump and front cover. 5.0L Truck (except Explorer) These engines are similar to the Full Size Car engines, except they use different intake manifolds and camshaft profiles. They also use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. They also began using roller cams sometime in the early 1990s. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover.

Good Luck

I have a 1965 food falcon with a mustang 302 (1978 ) v8. how do i know if it is a windsor or not?


Well there is a 302 cleveland, they are mainly an Australian engine. Identifying one is much like telling the difference between a 351 windsor and a 351 cleveland. Based on the fact that it's from Ford's 335 engine family. 8 cap screws to hold on the valve covers, the block is longer do to the timing chain housing being integrated. The fuel pump bolts are mounted vertically, and the exhaust bolt holes are diagonal. Also, a big difference between an american 302 and an aussie 302 cleveland, is the connecting rods for the cleveland are 6.000''. Where the american 302 connecting rod length is 5.090". Also, referring to a 302 as a windsor is incorrect, it's block families name is the 90 degree v8. The only engine in that family that is properly named the windsor, is the 351 windsor. The 90 degree family also includes the 302 boss. The boss has cleveland style heads, and the block has screw in freeze plugs.

1966 Mustang 289 V8 auto 2b new battery and solenoid-won't crank


Check the battery terminals. If they have become corroded you could be getting a bad connection. When the starter is engaged it creates such a power load at the connections that it will arc and loose power. Or, you could have a bad ground wire off the battery. Also check the positive cable leading down to the starter. Most of the mustangs had the battery cable leading to the starter between the engine and the exhaust manifold. Eventually they melt through and can cause a short. This would require replacing the cable. Good luck.

Why did my car try to start on its own


Assuming that the solenoid was installed correctly I have to say that you purchased a faulty solenoid.
