Question about 1981 Ford Bronco
1981 bronco 302 ... full size
One day the bronco started to backfire real bad.
I was maybe 2 miles from home and it kept running
till I got about 1 block from home then it died.
I coasted into driveway...parked...turned the key off
then back on and it started for about 2-3 seconds then died.
Ever since then it wont start....turns over but wont start.
These are what was replaced.
It gets spark and fuel.
Had fuses checked...all good.
Had gas poured into (Holley) carb.
Yes the carburator isnt the original one.
Your cam could be flat.

Check for timing gear problems. They have plastic teeth on the cam shaft gear which will shatter causing it to jump time.
