SOURCE: Ford 8N 1949 cannot start no spark

Hi I am Vortash this sounds like a spark gap problem at the distributor points or maybe a fault in the ignition switch .. but the voltage regulator would only regulate the power coming from the dynamo to the battery and as long as the battery is charging then it is ok I would check the following ... Points gap for a fourstroke engine of the age you say I would have thought no less than 12- no mre than 18 thou .. check the distributor rotor arm and cap are connecting properly ..sometimes the carbon connection sticks and doesn't touch the rotor strip , make sure the rotor arm end is not carbonised .. check there are no breaks in the contact breaker wire .. run a wire direct from the battery to the coil and distributor bypassing the ignition switch and see if it starts then proving a switch fault ..hope this helps regards vortash

SOURCE: no fire at plugs on golden jubilee ford tractor

check and see if the points are gapped, no gap or too wide(not closing) make sure the point set is grounded properly and the connector tab from the points to the terminal is insulated. if you dont find it here then you have a bad condensor. look closely where the terminal comes out of the distributor and make sure the insulator is intact. i have seen people putiing in points loose them and also cracks from the years have led them to rot and when the terminal is turned they just turn to dust. i found one from just 8n's for mine and put it in he has naa parts as well. the trick is the points have to open and close and not be gronded to the hull of the dist. the only ground on the points should be where the screws hold them in the other side (breaking side should not ground) . good luck and hope this helps

SOURCE: my 1965 ford tractor will not fire on a cylinder.

Do you have compression in that cylinder?How did the plug look when you removed it?Was it black and oily?Black and sooty?Did it smell of gas?Did you change your points and condenser?By tractor will not fire on a cylinder,do you mean spark?Check for compression on that cylinder first.No compression,remove the valve cover and look for a broken spring or a stuck valve.Both won't allow that cylinder to build compression.Another thing is a burned valve,it won't be able to seal.You can sometimes hear which one that's bad by removing all the spark plugs except on the bad cylinder.Then turn over the engine and listen at the exhaust and carburetor.You'll hear the air going by the valve that's bad.This is allot of info,I know.Try to check the compression and look at those valves if it's not the points.

SOURCE: Ford 9N problems; Changed plugs, wires,

You might check ground. some of these units were ground positive. did you switch the posts?This would cause problems since the electrons are on the inside of the condinser.
Good luck

I have 47 n8 ford tractor that cranks but won't start. Its getting compression and fuel but no spark. Spark plugs are new. Any suggestions before i go replacing parts?

First check points for corrosion and replace condenser if it has been sitting a while. Test for voltage at the coil small lead coming from the ignition switch. If you have done this all, the coil may be bad, and while you can test it with an ohm meter, this test is not perfect so you may want to either replace it or substitute a known good unit. CAUTION! six volt coils are different from 12 volt coils AND there are two different types of 12 volt coils--internal and external resistor coils. Most folks convert these old tractors to 12 volts, but to do so requires several changes besides the coils. More details on request.

How do i get a blue spark

The issue is spark yes/no. The color is not really relevant. Any spark will usually fire the mixture.

Briggs and stratton 14.5hp turns over with spark but wont start, fuel problem...

The wires on the base of the carb go to a fuel shut off solinoid, or is known as an anti fire solinoid, it shuts the fuel supply off the the main jet when the engine is switched off, there should be constant battary level at the solinoid
whilst the ignition is on, you can remove the solinoid and check its function, simply connect a 12v supply to the removed solinoid, and the centre plunger should spring down into the solinoid body.

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer

Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

My 1984 Ford Bronco will not start. What is the problem? I checked the Coil, all the plugs, distributor, fuel pump, carborator. I used starter fluid on the carborator, and it didnt start. The fuel pump...

Well its electrical if your not getting spark.

check the voltage to the coil......if your not getting voltage there nothing will happen

How did you check the coil..perhaps your coil is bad...they are cheap.

Ohm out the coil to see if it test correctly, you cant just take the wire off of it to check for spark..this is not an accurate test

Turns over not starting changed points

Verify the point gap is set right and that you are getting a good spark. Check to see if you are getting fuel to the carb.

Ford 8N will not start when hot

This sounds like a bad fuel pump to me. The only way to be sure is to check the fuel pressure when cold, probably around 45 PSI. Then when it get hot it will drop way down to 10 or 15 PSI. Check the pressure if you can, or change the fuel pump.
