  1. Cranks w/o plugs, won't crank with plugs... help!

    Engine Tech
    I am doing what the shop manual says but sometimes they could be wrong... It says to make a mark on the body of the distributor and the block so the distributor goes back in exactly where is was before, and to mark the rotor where it points on the housing. It also says to avoid turning the...

    At this point I am stuck trying to get the distributor off the engine. With heat(I use heat gun, don't like torches) and lubricant I will get it off. I am not a a hurry. One last question: which way do you spin the drill once in place? CW or CCW? Is 5 minutes plenty of time?

    I am glad I just read your post. I was at the point of pulling the distributor, hold down bolt removed(yes I aligned the stator and marked the body to the block) but it seems stuck to the block it will not come out. I left it soaking with lubricant. Does it just drop in the hole? Given that the...

    Those of you suggesting dead battery and jumping not a good idea were right. I wasn't really jumping the dead battery, I had it disconnected and connected the good battery via jumper wires to the battery wires on the 460 engine. Anyway, physically putting the good battery in the chassis makes...

    Thanks for your reply. Spinning the dizzy on a town car sure sounds easier than on a van chassis. I do not see how a drill will fit in there but I will try.

    so I understand things correctly I want to make certain we understand each other. The engine never ran out of oil, the oil was in the pan but since the cylinders did not get lubricated often because it was sitting for a while, the engine ceased. Will this situation cause what you are describing?

    I guess the pistons froze for lack of oil. That is when I removed the plugs and injected some Marvel oil into each cylinder, then turned it by hand until it moved freely.

    Hi everyone. I need help and I am no expert mechanic... I neglected our 1984 Motorhome with an E-350 7.5 V8 ford 460 engine. It always ran fine, then I parked it while I finished our home(5 years), starting it a couple of times a year, until one day it wouldn't start again. I have read a lot...
