Re: bronco 2 wont start

I don't really know the car, but I'll take a stab
I assume it's injected and uses an electric pump? You could try loosening off the fuel rail and watching to see if the injectors are firing?
Is the dizzy 180 degrees out?

Re: bronco 2 wont start

using starting fluid i got it to backfire out the intake, which leads me to believe i got the spark plug wires mixed up?

i know timing is not off, as i never touched the timing chain

tomorrow ill check the wires again
