I mean the ignition switch and lock barrel, the one where you put the key inside. Buy the Haynes manual and check 'finding a short circuit' and 'Removal - ignition switch and lock barrel' under 'body electrical system. In the manual it will show step by step with pictures what to do.

Regards

I have a 1977 Ford f-250 with a 460. I am not getting spark have changed ignition module. Have power to coil


Good chance on a vehicle that age that the pick-up coil in the distributor is bad. Also you need to make sure the distributor is turning. If the distributor is not turning, you could have a locked up oil pump, or a bad timing chain.

How do you replace a ignition modulel on a 1977 ford f150 m in the distributer


On the 1977 the ignition module is an aluminum box that should be mounted somewhere in the engine compartment. The ignition pick-up is mounted inside the distributor and you must remove the drive gear from the shaft in order to pull the shaft out and slide the pick-up off the hub of the distributor. This is not an easy job and most people try replacing the module first as it is usually the problem.

1977 ford f-100, 302 motor, c4 transmission. set the timing


With the vacuum line(s) dis-connected from the distributor and plugged up, the engine timing should be set at 4 degrees before top dead center idling at 650 rpm, and if it has California emissions then the ignition timing should be set at 12 degrees before top dead center while idling at 700 rpm. If the timing specifications listed on the vehicle emission label are different from these specifications then the specifications listed on the emission label are to take precedence.

Use a timing light to check the ignition timing, (and be sure that the timing light is connected to the #1 spark plug wire) and if the ignition timing is not to specifications then loosen the distributor hold down and turn the distributor until the timing marks move into position and are aligned to the timing specification, then tighten down the distributor hold down and then re-check the timing to be certain that the distributor did not move out of timing when the distributor was tightened down, then re-connect the vacuum line(s) to the distributor and re-set the engine idle back to where it was if it had to be changed. Be sure that the timing scale and marker down on the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley and the engine block are clean and they will show up well, and you can also mark them with chalk so the engine can be timed easily.

If you connect the vacuum line(s) to the distributor and the engine runs poorly then all of the vacuum line(s) to the distributor will have to be checked and then connected to their proper vacuum source.

If the ignition wires are leaking secondary voltage you might get a good secondary voltage shock if you touch the distributor to turn it. Let me know if you need help connecting and using a timing light, or if you require any further assistance.

Here is a firing order diagram to help assist you.

Electrical problem


there is a short on the car electric circuits, or inside the ignition block. If I was in your shoes I would start by replacing the ignition block. This can probably fix it. If it doesn't, you should check the ignition circuit backward to find the short.
