Hey I just traded my 2001 Dodge Ram Crewcab 4x4 for a 1974 f-250 camper special 4x4 Beast! Has super Duty 4 wheel disc brakes,axles, etc. Dana 60 high pinion, sterling rear brand new locker in rear and truetrac in front. 44in boggers,red neck brand ram steering ,12in suspension lift, fresh rebuilt c6 with bigger stall, hooker headers, brand new exhaust, motor was said to be rebuilt a year and a half ago with just over 400miles on it, edelbrock 750 dbl pumper, torker intake,roller rockers, cam (unknown atm) New huge racing radiator,Mallory Dist. lots of recent receipts.Theres more but my problem is on ride home after picking it up it all of a sudden just died. Thought it was fuel added gas, splashed a bit in the carb. Engine cranked but no fire. Couldn't believe my luck, after I test drove it for a while the day before and drove it maybe 40 miles and this happened. Oil pressure was good, i think it was constantly around 60 or so, temp was at 170ish. I'm thinking maybe its a spark issue but haven't had time to look. took 5 hours to get a tow truck big enough for the truck. Need help as I am new to fords, and i just got the truck after trading my great running dodge. Didn't even get to drive it home and i feel like i got screwed here. Guy i got it from doesn't know whats wrong and denies anything was up before. I live in Riverside CA 92504 area if anyone can help me out! Please help me out if you can. u can text or call me at: --------------------nine-five-one-836-19eight7
I just put a new coil in, old one seemed to have a weak spark. Truck still hasnt started yet. I believe its HEI now no longer points. Should i go for a mallory or msd ignition box to try to bypass my problems? the wires look so so, Im think of swapping to new but i doubt that is why the truck died. Haven't checked plugs yet but again doubt that is why it went from running fine to dieing. The numbers on the dist tell me its a newer HEI style. Could it be that the resister is the problem or the module? Again im not a pro at all when it comes to electrical trouble shooting. heres the pics:
