Engine coughs and sputters and acts like its flooded on cold start.


Unlikely it's flooded, but I did have a similar problem with my car, and replacing the temperature sensor fixed it.

Will start, but floods out and won't run


wow, great post, (no location stated sadly,you in Nunavut?)
floods, a clear hard piece of evidence. bravo, and helps...
fuel soaked spark plugs.
if tuned up and , compression is 150,psi not 90 x4.
and spark is strong, then and only then is it a fueling problem.

ill assume you read the op guide and used the unflood method/
stated in glove box manual?
no, then use WOT TO START THE ENGINES.
wot, wide open throttle, (yes, right foot to floor)
this act cuts all fuel injections. and must start
if not , no spark.
if the egr is leaking , it will be hard to start, do the 50k service on it.
if the ISC is stuck closed, it will be hard to start and flood (no air)
so use just 10% throttle , acting as sort of a human ISC
start now?
that is just the tip of ice berg.
here is more flooding.
all ways, i think are here

Have a test done on the glo-plug system as it appears that they have burnt out and are not pre-heating the cylinders or providing a source of ignition for the atomised fuel from the injectors

Ford 8N wont start


It sounds like the conversion was more trouble than it was worth. I won't claim to have the solution to your problem having never worked on an 8N, but I was wondering about the capacity of the points and condenser in the distributor. If the condenser is not 12 V also, it might be causing the points to melt which would keep from getting a spark at the plugs. Check the condenser for voltage rating and also check if you are getting a spark at the plugs by unscrewing a plug, reconnecting the high tension lead, and hold the edge of the plug against the block while cranking using thick leather gloves, insulated pliers, rubber, or other non-conductive material to keep from getting shocked.

My 8n (6 volt) will not start. Great spark getting


Spark to plugs is great?.....but if they are black (carbon coated) it may not start.
Crank her over and use that choke for 30 seconds.
Pull the plugs ...are they wet with gas?Smell it....is it water or gas.
They should be wet with something.
Are they dry.........No fuel.

If they are wet with gas and NOT black carbon coated and you are SURE you have spark..........time to tow it to start.
You want to turn the engine fast enough to have the crank throw oil onto the cyl walls. Engines need a oil coated cyl wall to run....to seal the rings.The gas from flooding the engine washes the oil away.Put it back and it should fire up.After the first start...it should be OK.
I've started many a engine that others could not start (flooded or sitting for years) with a little oil in each cyl to seal it.....but towing is the better choice if possible.

My 9N is having trouble starting. It turns over fine but seems to be flooding. When it finally sputters to a start, it takes a while to run smooth. Also the idle seems to be fast and there is no change in...


Shut off fuel to carburetor, drain carburetor. Open fuel and count to three then shut off fuel. Crank engine then pull choke for 1 second then push in. If engine starts open fuel valve at tank. Also try lowering float level in carburetor. Good luck.

Ford 8n sometimes just stops-very hard to restat.


Could be a bad condensor or coil, flaking out when they get hot. If it starts ok after it cools down about an hour and is cold, then very likely the problem.
www.Ford8n.com would have everything you need for replacements.

95 Bonneville won't start when hot


Yes I know, but If you hold the accelerator pedal to the floor on a fuel injected car, the Throttle position sensor will tell the computer to enter clear flood mode. Then the computer will shut off the fuel injectors while you have the pedal to the floor. If it is flooded, you should be able to get it started in clear flood.
