I have a 1993 ford Econovan maxi . I have ignition point . What is the gap on the ignition point . Thanks

point gap is .40 to .50 mm ( point 4 to point 5 mm) or .015 to .20"
most point distributors are at the .02 " mark but check and adjust as points to wide will misfire under load or lack power if too close
point gap variations can change ignition timing

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.

1965 ford 352 engine blows oil out of breather. what causes this. pcv valve in right side of engine. should I have another breather installed or additional pcv

I know the 65 didn't come with a 352, what is a 352? I thought it was a 351 windsor,? Anyway, did you rebuild the motor? There is a vent under neath the intake sheet metal that clogs up, It is held in the with a plate and rivets, you either have to remove the rivets or soak the whole thing in solvent. It will upset the car's pcv, a new pcv valve won't hurt, you don't need to be drilling holes, you might make it worse. Check all your vacuum lines. Make sure you have no leaks. Hope this helps.

I need a wire schematic for a 1966 ford 352,its got pionts, and it wont fire.

My manuals don't go back far enough, to pull up a schmatic that would be of any use to you. But if you have a spark problem, try taking the
dist. cap off, but don't remove the wires. Check the contacts inside the
cap make sure they're clean+tight,also look for cracks or carbon tracks. (they look like lightning bolts) Next have somone crank it over and see if
the points are opening and closing. If not, turn the engine either by hand
or have somone click the starter until the rubbing block on the points is
on one of the high spots on the distributer shaft. Loosen the screws that
hold the points just enough to move the points toward the dist shaft with
a screwdriver. Check the contacts on the points to make sure they
come together flat no arc spots, if there is replace the points or file them flat. Now if you don't have .017thou. feeler gauge, a match book
cover will do. Place the cover between the point contacts and use a
screwdriver to move the points away from the dist shaft until the cover
is snug between the contacts, remove cover. Next, with key on check
for spark at the points. Just touch the contacts on the points with a
screwdriver you should see and hear spark also put just a dab of clean
grease on the dist shaft. Check the roter and put the cap on. Pull the
coil wire from the cap and hold it about 1/4" from ground have somone crank it and make sure you have spark. Also if the truck has been
sitting a while and you're trying to revieve it. Have some fresh gas handy
and try not to leave the key on to long with the engine off. If the points
are in the closed mode the contacts can weld themselves together.
Hope this helps.

I have a 73 ford 1.6 industrial motor. need electronic distributo

Look on E-bay for an electronic CD unit that fires from the original points, but generates about 400 volts to fire the standard coil. My guess is that there is no all-electronic ignition system available even as a racing option. Ford used this engine in the Pinto line of cars from`'71 to `73, and all of them used points and condenser distributors. The points and condenser units work fine if in good order and the point gap set at .025". Hope this gives you an assist!
