Took the distributor out and cleaned it then put it back in and now the truck wont crank but tries to do so. need some tips please
Did you take out the ENTIRE Distributor or just the cap?
If you took out the entire Distributor, and put it back in, there is a possibility that you put it in backwards. The bottom of the Distributor has a 'notch' in it. If you turn it 180 degrees the wrong way, and put it back in, your truck will not start, because it is in effect 180 degrees out of alignment with the timing.
If you only took out the cap, refer to your owners manual (Hanes is best) for the plug wire placement in reference to the firing order, and make sure all the plug wires are in the correct locations. Also, make sure your plug wires are seated all the way down onto the plugs, and the cap is secured tightly onto the base of the Distributor.
Make sure your Coil Wires are also seated properly to the coil and the Distributor.
Clean the battery connections. Remove the battery connections, clean them and reinstall.
