Question about 1988 Ford F 250
Need wiring diagram for 88 f 250 showing tachometer circuit from inst panel, all the way to distributor and coil. i took the 351w out, out in carburated 460. electronic dist and brainbox are out of 83 f 250. part #on brain is D6AE 12A199. # on dist is C8VF 1213-8orB. the coil i just bought at napa for 83 f 250 indicates no external resistor needed. other coils say on them to use with resistor, this one does not. so i assume this electonic ign syswill not need an added in resistor. so i may need a diagram for the 83 f 250 460 elec ign sys dist and control box.

if you turn the key and the engine spins but doesnt fire try checking the timing for it to make spark at the time you need it to ,if it's out it wont catch and run or check for spark at the spark plug make sure it has spark use a dummy sparkplug in the boot and hold it on a ground and crank engine look for a blueish spark and if you have bare hands holding it you'll get a good jolt (insulated pliers)

Before you replace the ECU check to see that the fuel pump relay is working. It will be on the drivers side under the hood located just above the fenderwell. It should be mounted on a plastic piece with two other relays beside it. This relay is only about $ 16.00.

Change the ignition modules that helps 955 of the miss, I then changed fuel pump as it was heating up and I feel stress the ign module curcuits.
all fine now,, Spend a fortune up till this point.. plugs, wires, injectors, relays, coil, EGR, o2, exhaust manifolds....urgh

If you have a good look at the coil, it should still have a positive and negative sign on it somewhere. Try not let the extra wires confuse you too much. These are for the ignition module in the distributor. let me know if you need further clarification after you've had a look.
