Engine caught on fire need wiring harness and diagram for a 1993 Ford Splash Ranger

Check with a salvage yard or do a used part search online. Ford doesn't have a complete diagram, it is broken down into sections of the wiring harness. you need the factory wiring diagram booklet, you can often find them on ebay.

Ford 1981 f 150 not running changed Coil distributor cap Roar arm plug wires did not help started bur ran extremely rough then died

motors need 3 things to run properly. gas spark and compression. the starting point. also spark timing.
the motor you are dealing with is easy. i just rebult a 1978. anyways sounds like a timing problem . first i would check the distributer. if all is ok spay a squirt of starting fluid in the air filter, or even wd40.,,,,,,,see if it is gasoline problem. isolate where the problem is.

What your problem sounds like is a short in the engine harness. When the engine is under load it will rock slightly this can cause wires to rub. If the right wire rubs ground it will blow out your fuse. Follow your harness from the fire wall to the engine and look very closely for any rubbing of the wire loom.
