Question about 1985 Ford F350
The timing is NOT off. We changed the ignition module, changed the ignition coil, changed the spark plugs [no wires have been crossed], and changed the module in the distributor. The battery holds a charge. The carburator is getting gas. The truck turns over but will not start. If any of you have any ideas, please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks.
Are you getting 12v power to the coil while the truck is cranking as well as ignition in on position? which engine is it?

The pin that goes through the distributor shaft may be sheared off remove the cap look under the rotor button

Are you getting spark to the spark plugs? you could have a separated wire that looks fine on the outside and not allowing current to the coil
