How to put back the ford v6 distributor correctly

HI, if you put the engine marks on the front pulley to TDC, when you put the distributor back in make sure that the rotor arm is facing toward the number one plug lead- good luck.

Fails to turnover because. My neighbor. Took it apart. And forgot how. To put it back. Together he really. Needs a step by step. Guide on how to if anyone could. Point me in the right direction

First off, check your spark plug order. The distributor rotation is clockwise or counter clockwise depending on your engine size. 4cyl 2.3L, 6cyl In-line 3.3L, and V6 3.3L engines have distributors which rotate clockwise. 3.8L V6 and 8 cylinder engines have distributors which rotate counter clockwise. A 5.0 will start with the wires backwards but you will have no power if you try to drive it.

How to replace an ignition rotor to a 1988 Ford Escort

Your vehicle may be equipped with either of the following ignition systems, depending on the year and engine combination:
* 1981-82 1.3L and 1.6L engines: Dura Spark II Ignition System
* 1982-85 1.6L Non-EFI and 1986 1.9L Non-EFI engines: Thick Film Ignition I (TFI-I) System
* 1983-90 1.6L EFI and 1.9L EFI engines: Thick Film Ignition IV (TFI-IV) System

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the distributor from the engine.
  3. Place the distributor assembly on a workbench.
  4. Remove the two TFI ignition module retaining screws.
  5. Pull the right side of the module down the distributor mounting flange and then back up to disengage the module terminals from the connector in the distributor base. The module may then be pulled toward the flange and away from the distributor.
Do not attempt to lift the module from the mounting surface, except as explained in Step 3, as the pins will break at the distributor module connector.

To install:
  1. Coat the baseplate of the TFI ignition module uniformly with a 1 / 32 in. (0.8mm) of silicone dielectric compound WA-10 or equivalent.
  2. Position the module on the distributor base mounting flange. Carefully position the module toward the distributor bowl and engage the three connector pins securely.
  3. Install the retaining screws. Tighten to 15-35 inch lbs. (1.7-4.0 Nm), starting with the upper right screw.
  4. Install the distributor into the engine. Install the cap and wires.
  5. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Recheck the initial timing. Adjust the timing, if necessary.

Hope helps.

OK i have a 1991 ford ranger 3.0 i have put the engine on top dead center (i believe) i put a paper towel in number one piston and when i turn the engine over it pushes it out i stop turning it over i...

Everything sounds good except where you put the rotor pointing at. at tdc the piston would have already fired. you need to readjust the distributor. also to get it sit in place you have to move the oil pump rod. just sounds like your one tooth off

Someone took out the distributor

Remove sparkplugs, turn engine by hand to top dead center (when #1 piston is all the way up, full compression), look at distributor with the cap on it and rotor, align rotor to where #1 spark plug wire position, remove cap, remember or mark where rotor position is, then insert in engine, as in goes into slot, it will turn slightly,notice how far it moved asit went in, remove again and turn rotor back alittle so as to get it aligned to #1 position, once you got it close to were its on #1, see if there are old markings on the part of distributor shaft that may give you an idea where the clamp down piece made contact and set it there. tighten just enough to where you can rotate dirstributor by hand, put everything back together and try to start. play with distributor little at a time 'til it starts usually around halfway point.

96 ranger likely doesn't have one. The "module" that used to be found in carburated vehicles with Distributors and Rotors has been eliminated by fuel injection , electronic ignition , and computers.
I MIGHT BE WRONG ABOUT THIS , maybe someone will come up with a better answer. In any case you might have to give more info about what the engine is doing ( or not doing ) .

I replaced ignition module and no spark still! I also did the trouble light on the neg on coil and pos on battery and no flashing on light so where do I go now?

Well, assuming that you have the light hooked up correctly ( one side on battery hot post, one on coil neg post, I'd look at the pickup assembly. That is where the module gets its signal to fire the coil. If that is no good then you won't have spark. To replace it, you will need to remove the distributor from the engine, remove the roll pin near the bottom of the stem, pull the drive gear off the stem, a few bolts at the top, and then the whole thing should just come apart. two more screws and the pickup will come out, goes back together in reverse. Take out plug one and stick your finger in the hole, have someone bump the engine until you feel a push of air, and then put the distributor back in set to cylinder one, put the cap and wires back on, plug back in, and then fire it up and time it.
