You will need to get some kind of ignition system first. I would recommend getting an MSD. It will come with wiring instructions, and it will be all you need to run the motor.

My 2006 ford explorer with no turn on,there no is sound. the windows come down, lights on

Maybe starter solenoid or starter itself bad. Buy yourself a 12 volt light type tester $5 find solenoid to starter, have someone try to start while you have one lead on one of the small wire terminal and the other lead on the other small wire terminal. If you get light solenoid should work and u will hear click. If starter does not turn over place one lead of tester on large wire terminal and other lead on large wire terminal, if you get light with person trying to start engine you have a solenoid that contacts are not making contact. Also if you have been mud bogging or somehow immersed the starter in water you may have blown starter fuse.

I have a 96 ford bronco I took the 351 efi engine out and put a 429 thunderjet in it I was wondering how I would go about doing the engine wiring efi to basic distributor coil

Anyone can change engine with a non standard item but making it run is an entirely different problem.

Seek professional help with this. Don't even try to rig this up yourself.

Why does my ford 429 start to shake when I put it into gear at idle only

More info is needed. Has it been upgraded to fuel injection? What is idle set to in park? Is there an aftermarket cam installed?

If it was originally in a manual transmission car and your car is automatic the idle will need to be adjusted higher. If it has been upgraded to fuel injection (throttle body injection) I would start by checking the idle air control.

If we have more info about the engine we can help out more.

Why does my ford 429 start to shake when I put it into gear at idle only.

Timing of the engine when thrown a load and when it is hot! might be in a variable part of the distrubutor.

Where is the EEC relay in a 1992 F-250 with a 7.5 liter

I suggest to check underhood engine bay, according with this wiring diagram, look under EEC (Electronic Engine Control 1992) or PCM (Powertrain Contro Module 1996-1996)...


Fig. 22: Engine wiring - 1992-95 F-Series 7.5L (VIN G), 1996 F-Series 7.5L Federal (VIN G) and 1996 F-Series Pick-up 5.8L (VIN H over 8500 GVW) engines - ZOOM LINK DIAGRAM HERE (top left)

ALso, I suggest to check wiring circuit C185, located in THIS LINK DIAGRAM (top right)

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1995 gmc sierra bogging when wet

Check your coil for cracks or signs of corrosion. If you instead have a distributor cap, do the same. If it all looks okay, start the vehicle and pop the hood. Get a water bottle or something to spray water with and start getting the wires and coil and distributor wet until the truck stalls. Make sure to do it slowly so you can tell what part you soaked that caused the truck to stall.
